Transversal management complements line management. Transversality makes it possible to work across departments – mostly on projects or strategic change that require interdisciplinary expertise.
Cross-sectional functionality brings the units of an organisation to work together in a dynamic, transparent and agile way, where all participants benefit from increased knowledge transfer. Teams develop collective intelligence and achieve common goals in a complex environment.
