"The organization assessment gave us insight into why certain teams were finding it difficult to work together. We knew that they were not communicating effectively and the interviews uncovered why. Confusion over reporting lines and misunderstanding about areas of responsibility had resulted in staff being confused about which manager they should go to for advice and support. We were able to identify some fairly straightforward actions to manage the situation."
