Taskforces thrive, says Colin McLaren, if leaders constantly keep the team up to date, up to speed and well briefed.
Colin McLaren explains to Eve Ash why taskforce leaders need to resource them teams well. Above all, leaders need to get the result by continuously sharing information and providing the reason for why the investigation is occurring.
