Expansive organizational charts and ambiguous job descriptions do not represent the true interactions between individuals and teams. Workplace relationships continuously evolve as they respond to the complexities and phases of work. Team roles change. People come and go. Even with the best managerial strategies, an unhealthy network will stifle productivity.
