Project management, task forces, managing central or support roles, process control, network management… transverse management is essential in complex organizations where cooperation and responding collectively are essential. Transverse management both goes beyond and complements top-down management. Associated with notions of territory and power, top-down management tends toward compartmentalisation, and this runs counter to both the general interest and global performance goals. The most significant progress in a company is made at points of cross-functional interaction. The aim of this program is to develop your ability to coordinate people in various sectors and help them coordinate in turn. These are people who do not report to you, and who are expected to contribute collectively in order to achieve results. By acquiring this highly sought-after expertise, you'll become a valuable asset to your organization.
