It doesn’t matter which two teams. 

It starts immediately and unconsciously. To some degree the integration of teams around a common goal inevitably produces an Us vs. Them dynamic. This split creates division over perceived effort, talent, recognition, praise, conflict resolution, inclusion, and commitment.

The Company Dashboard & Strategic Alignment

Your company dashboard starts with a shared vision of your business. There's no point in measuring something if your team can't agree on what is most important. But what exactly IS most important in your organization?

Does everyone agree on the customer, the value proposition, the activities that are in scope - and the activities that aren't? Even if you don't agree on what will work, do you at least agree on what you're trying to do?
