The importance of lateral communications

Developing corporate strategy requires the flow of information up as well as down and the successful implementation of that strategy depends on crucial information flowing from "side to side" between different parts of the organisation.

Your competitors will match you in creating a strategic vision and working to sell it to their organisation. The next step in organisation performance is developing the lateral communication capacity of the business.

Traditionally, internal communications has skated by identifying or engaging with different groups inside a company. Our unique approach is to identify the subcultures within an organisation and work directly with them to improve lateral communications, using cultural workshop and communication process tools.
