I agree with this article and think that many companies could really benefit from putting more effort into lateral communication. I also agree with Lyceum, which companies do you think have the best lateral communication?

Could you mention some companies that are using lateral communication throughout their organizations? One of the biggest problems with traditional communication is that you get the "silos" structures with walls between the different departments. A real supply chain workflow system could fix this problem.
