Work is changing quickly, and companies with strong collaboration will lead the charge. Teamwork across departments and functions is critical—so teams can join forces, pivot quickly, and move faster than their competition.
In this special report, we explore the unique challenges facing Japanese businesses, with data and insights to unlock collaboration at your company.
Three key points surfaced again and again—not just in Japan, but also across industries and continents.
Cross-team collaboration helps companies weather storms: Teams with strong collaboration can solve problems quickly, without wasting time figuring out who’s responsible for what. This link was clear in Japan, with 65% of workers at collaborative organizations feeling well-prepared to respond to business challenges.
Clear company and individual goals help fuel collaboration: Goals give employees shared targets to aim for, so everyone is in the loop on expectations and priorities. In Japan, 82% of workers at collaborative organizations said they have clear goals for their role.
Optimized processes—not more meetings—can help businesses collaborate smarter. Japanese knowledge workers estimate that they lose 2.1 hours per week to unnecessary meetings, and could save 4.4 hours per week if they had improved processes. That means leaders who prioritize efficient teamwork can make time for employees, and themselves, to focus on mission-critical tasks.
