There are quite a number of functions and departments in a business and when these are left to work separately, the results will soon start translating into slowed productivity and low success rates. Proper management principles dictate that in as much as the departments are as separate as they are, they are not supposed to be left as standalone entities and sadly enough this is where a majority of the businesses end up making mistakes. The success and failures of a business is never the result of any single one person or department but the whole though this is how this is often communicated internally and externally. This is often a factor that quite results in de-motivation as a matter of fact and as well there are a number of the functions that are non profit that never get to receive as much recognition as is often given to the profit making ones. This is a sure recipe for internal conflict in an organization and the end result will be on the overall success of your business. Thus you may ask yourself still the reasons why it is important for you to have your business departments working as a team and staff taking a rather commonality of responsibility for the whole business operations. The following are some of the reasons why it is important that you ensure that you have your team taking collaborative efforts and a such get to attain greater business performance.
The first fact of the reasons is that of taking and having a sense of responsibility. By allowing the parts involved in the process have the input of all from the beginning to the end, the end result will be that they will start feeling part and parcel of the whole process as well from the beginning to the end. In a number of the companies, the employees are never given such a choice to take such responsibility and as well there are those where the employees are never ready and willing to accept such kind of a responsibility. When you allow your employees to take greater responsibility for the processes, you will realize the benefits in the sense that they will be quite good at helping in resolving issues not only in their departments but as well in the other departments. For instance, the case may be where you have your finance department facing delays in processing the expenses as they do not get the information in time, this would basically result in the finance department as well having to delay in filing the tax returns online which will have further implications down the line.
