Traditionally, companies are departmentalized by functional expertize, such as marketing, technology, and finance. This has have allowed companies to make more efficient use of their limited resources. Unfortunately, such functional structures often also lead to silos that inhibit collaboration and create disincentives for delivery. Adaptive Business Management, on the other hand, believes that the work should dictate the organizational structure. ABM teaches that cross-functional teams working towards a common goal are the best way to reduce dependencies and encourage accountability.
