Cross-Functional Team

What is a cross-functional team

Definition of a cross-functional team

Essentially, a cross-functional team refers to any team consisting of employees from across a business’s different functional areas.

Each member represents a key aspect of the company and brings their own skills to the table. The team works together to deliver a cohesive customer experience, free of service or knowledge gaps. 

Cross-functional groups may be working teams — that is, a temporary restructure for a specific project or projects — or your entire organization may be built with an emphasis on cross-functional working.
