To make the doers’ job easier, we need crosslinkers. The ones that know, almost literally, everybody inside and outside your company.
While visionaries and doers get their hands on the task, crosslinkers are ready to jump into action anytime. And since these three roles are in constant interaction, crosslinkers will know when they are needed before the help is requested.
For them to work faster, and so the project keeps going on good tracks, visionaries must communicate their ideas on time before doers start executing, so cross-linkers make the necessary contacts in forehand.
Anything from possible customers, partnerships, suppliers, designers, experts on particular fields, human resources, cross linkers got it covered.
