OMF Cross-Functional Teams

The goal for OMF cross-functional teams is to develop more cohesion, coordination, and synergy among staff in OMF bureaus and divisions. This leads to more seamless, comprehensive customer service where a "problem" or solution is looked at from all angles and where OMF employees are more cognizant of seeing the interconnectivity in their work.

The hallmarks of OMF cross-functional teams include:

  • The team has an identified sponsor(s) from the Core Leadership Team who provides the necessary commitment and oversight of top management to ensure a successful outcome.

  • The project is high profile, has a large impact, and/or reflects long-standing efforts.

  • The project involves staff from different OMF bureaus and divisions who have different skill sets and/or positions.

  • The project team’s level and scope of authority for decision-making is explicitly stated.
