      You also might want to read the book "Leading Change" by Dr. John P Kotter. This book offers 8 step change process, again seeming very "common sense" and convincing to be quite powerful.

      It has been mentioned on other threads in this group, but something
      that has helped me in very similar situations to yours is having a
      well-thought-out - almost strategic - change effort.  The
      book "Fearless Change" by Mary Lynn Manns and Linda Rising provides
      great advice for introducing and sustaining a change effort.  It
      provides patterns for introducing change and for sustaining the
      implementation of the change across an organization.  You can
      probably find some patterns that you can implement immediately ( e.g.
      maybe you can find influential "Innovators" interested in new ideas
      from each of those functional groups to recommend be part of the
      cross-functional team...). 
      It may seem like the ideas in the book are similar to "common
      sense", but somehow (for me) recognizing these things as patterns
      makes them much more effective...knowing how they can be combined
      and used to best effect can be quite powerful.
