This chapter discusses the extent to which team members maintain contacts outside of the project team. It also focuses on cross-ties, i.e., the external ties maintained by a team within the company, showing how such ties enhance project performance. The chapter distinguishes between horizontal ties crossing unit-boundaries and vertical ties crossing hierarchical boundaries, within an organization. Cross-hierarchy ties thus provide innovative teams with management-related resources that assist them in performing their tasks. Horizontal cross-unit ties and vertical cross-hierarchy ties improve innovation project team performance. Innovative project teams are no 'isolated islands', but thrive when properly embedded in the social network environment of their organization. As a leading European financial service provider, Redrock depends on reliable technology and processes, and supports this with investments in product and service innovation.
