What is a cross-functional team?

In an organization, a cross-functional team is a group of individuals coming from different departments or functional areas. For instance, a company may have a cross-functional team whose members are people from different areas of the company: human resources, marketing, sales, supply chain, and business development. 

Why is it useful for an organization to have a cross-functional team? 

Organizations have several reasons for having cross-functional teams. While it can take effort and time to group people coming from different departments, forming a cross-functional team has its benefits. Collaboration among people from different departments brings new insights and perspectives that can lead to new and creative ideas that the organization can use. Also, by having representatives from different areas, cross-functional teams can help improve communication within the organization.
