There are several reasons why cross- collaboration succeeds or fails. One catch that keeps emerging is the fact that while insisting on such collaboration, leaders tend to primarily highlight the processes and logistics. Individual departments often fall under the existential threat, as they need to grapple with the processes of another department or vertical. Departments instead focus on a sense of security to tide over this. A group identity and further legitimacy gets built around this. To minimize this resistance, one needs to reinforce the team identity. Leaders proficient at talent management, will control the power plays at these times. Territorial assertions and blocking behaviours tend to erode the control here. The leadership has to reassert this control. Each team and even leaders have their blind spots. These need to be understood before venturing out towards any collaborative initiative.
