referring to the sector/field/... as a whole


Explanation:
The ideal translation would probably retain some kind of reference to the 'Bereich', whose translation itself depends on wider context. The above represents an attempt to do this.

cross-structural


Explanation:
Not that I think this is the only possibility, but it's what I would use if I didn't know what exactly "Bereich" referred in the text to be translated, since cross-structural is a more general term than cross-divisional (which is what I would use if I knew that divisions came into it).

There can be no doubt, I think, that you should choose one of the "cross-" suggestions.

Anyway, here is an example containing cross-structural:

The survey revealed significant increases also in adoption of new human resource management practices, including planned transfers of people and skills between organisational units ... These initiatives are important in supporting increases in the use of cross-structural teams, and new channels for horizontal knowledge transfer.
