The benefits of teamworking are increasingly well known and well understood by organisations.  For many the development of a teamworking culture is a key element of the organisation’s overall strategy.

However achieving a teamworking culture is not easy.  Team working is often misunderstood.

In today’s rapidly evolving environment the challenges around remote working and cross functional teams. And the short term project team mean it is more important than ever to embed more effective teamworking
