I work in a big, fast growing organisations. We have a lot of structure and processes and rules to follow. One of the team we work with is more or less permanently "plotting" to get ahead, to get more resources, to go beyond the limits we normally have, to get cover for emergencies created because they promised customers something they could not deliver, and now it's everybody's problem.
We are meant to collaborare in observance of the rules, but this team goes for a "me first" approach, eventually retroactively justifying everything they do because of money.
If we all copied their example, it would be open warfare among the teams in the organisation. Instead, we have one team constantly pulling the blanket in their direction, and the others paying extra attention to avoid ripping the blanket. As the "spoiled team" brings more money, they get away with a lot. On the other hand, other teams are not getting the resources they need, and their growth suffers.
How to work with a team which is constantly breaking the rules to get ahead?
