What if you sent someone from _______ department to work in and with the people in another department for a week? And what if you kept doing that – sending people on an adventure to another department for a week?
Would they get to know each other better? Make friends? Understand other departments and their capabilities and struggles? Come up with better ideas? Integrate better? Have a better bench in case of an absence? Create better teamwork? Have people feel better about themselves? Kill boredom and increase engagement?
I think it would do all of that and more. What do you think?
