Need case studies - Cross-team onboarding
I'm in the midst of writing recommendations to my CEO regarding changing our onboarding process to bring a newcomer through sitting with multiple other teams across the organisation before starting their official job.
Does this ring any bells on specific companies, it would be a great help if anyone could link some my way!
I don't recall any specific organizations, but does this help: https://corporate-rebels.com/research-5-kinds-of-social-networks/
Thanks Pim and hi Thomas,
Yes, we do have such an onboarding programma at Viisi. Our new 'Viisionairs' spend several weeks in each of our core teams, varying from customer service to more technical teams. They are fully emerged in the daily work of the teams and get as many operational roles as possible during those weeks. It helps them to thoroughly understand our business and meet their new colleagues, before starting their 'official work'. It also lays a solid foundation for cooperation between teams, as there is mutual understanding of what exactly it is other teams do, what their challenges are etc.
Hope this helps! Best, MP
For a few years I argued that most pioneering firms on our Bucket list move beyond traditional multi-layer hierarchies via organizational models focused primarily on principles of communal sharing or market pricing. But a new round of interviews suggests they use a third model to organize their radically decentralized workforces: namely, a focus on the principle of reciprocity.
Ford's management model became the most influential one in the early 20th century. It embraced the possibilities enabled by the assembly line. This was followed by the General Motors' model (i.e. the multidivisional firm), and later by Toyota's model (i.e. Lean). More recently, electronic technologies (like computers and the Internet) have enabled the rise of the global 'Agile movement' with Spotify's model as the poster child. But now, with more and more IoT technologies, what will become the most influential management model of the future?
Maria Popova writes, “The history of the world is the history of telling others who and what we are—from tribal markings to national flags to family crests to pronoun-specifying email signatures.” How we choose to tell our stories—and what artifacts we choose to highlight—alters the way we hear our past, experience our present, and create our future.
