Business decisions often need etch in more than one functional area of the organisations. This leads to a better understanding of the inclusive development of the organisation and the country. This also allows people with different ideas, perspectives and expertise to voice their ideas and find creative and innovative solutions to the problems which organisations are experiencing. However, combining all these voices in one cross- functional team brings its own challenges, requiring specialized set of managerial knowledge and strategic skills.
This Symposium on Cross Functional Diffusion was for students, academicians and corporate. Participants were enriched with new trends adopted by the corporate and best practices which were shared by the eminent speaker and it benefitted the participants.
