There is an interesting movie called Vantage Point that shows the same scene over and over from different points of view. Each person’s perspective is colored by his or her background, culture, values, and physical vantage point. It is interesting to see how so many people can see the same event and recall it differently.
The same is true for your workforce. Depending on a person’s background, education, upbringing, and position in the company, they can view a project or challenge much differently. Part of this is their role in the firm. The other part is dependent on their vantage point.
Companies that solicit and exchange these different points of view may take a little longer to get results (not necessarily) but excel from being open and seeing a problem or opportunity from these different perspectives. Sales, support, production, finance and logistics see problems from how it affects them. The key is to constructively share these perspectives and develop an action plan that uses the talents and wisdom from those involved.
If everyone in the company is a stakeholder in the outcome, they will work together to achieve the best result, especially if they are part of the problem solving or creative process.
