The Challenges of Working with Other Departments


We had a full house today…and then some. From the jump, all four windows were filled with multiple people filtering in and out of video chat. The board was lit up as well with a lot of adjoining conversation. The topic of the day was interactions with other departments. Specifically, “what department is the most challenging to work with in your business?” Right out of the gate the IT department took the lead. Lack of understanding of what they do topped the reasons, but it also included not knowing their role in the company and fear that they will not understand our needs. The legal department, HR department, and general issues with subject matter experts were discussed at length as well. Be sure to check out the recording for all the details!
