Synergy is an organizational status wherein each of certain requisite criteria (the primary action items), as identified by upper management, confirmed by a committee of empowered key players in a bottom-up approach, incorporated into the fundamental vision of the group, structured into a gameplan framework, peer-reviewed, and implemented by core team members according to Six Sigma principles in an ISO 9000-compliant environment, come together to ensure holistic group productivity, enable outside-the-box thinking, and raise the stakes, opening untapped markets and propelling the company to lead the industry in the new economy.
In order for synergy to be achieved in any given organization, a series of asymetric directives must first be issued, preparatory to subsequent unilateral reorganizations. It is also necessary to gather all the relevant players in a series of meetings to allow management to canvass the entire group, establish the needed feedback parameters and the expectations paradigm, and get everyone on the same page going forward. Each work unit must be encouraged to participate, pushing toward the common goal, and must be enstrengthened, directed, and kept on task. With these preparations in place, work can begin on identifying the primary action items, which will be unique for each organization.
Assuming the correct set of action items has been identified and achieved, the cohesiveness and effectiveness of the team are greatly enhanced, leading immediately to more productive meetings and taking the group dynamic to the next level. Once this state of affairs has been reached, it may continue for as long as everyone remains a team player. While this synergy is in effect, the team is able to accomplish much more than it would otherwise be able to do.
