Most organizations today are de-emphasizing their hierarchal structures in favor of cross-functional groups, significantly increasing the collaboration needed to produce desired results. How does a technical leader gain the information, perspectives, and permissions, needed to get the work done and own the result without the requisite authority to make the “call” – at speed? Learners will learn how to collaborate and influence others when they don’t have positional authority. Participants will also engage in influence and agility drills to hone their capacity for producing solutions quickly.
