9780241250839: Team of Teams: New Rules of Engagement for a Complex World

As commander of Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), General Stanley McChrystal discarded a century of management wisdom and pivoted from a pursuit of mechanical efficiency to organic adaptability. In this book, he shows how any organization can make the same transition to act like a team of teams - where small groups combine the freedom to experiment with a relentless drive to share their experience. Drawing on a wealth of evidence from his military career and sources as diverse as hospital emergency rooms and NASA's space program, McChrystal frames the existential challenge facing today's organizations, and presents a compelling, effective solution.

Review:

In addition to being a fascinating and colourful read, this book is an indispensable guide to organizational change (Walter Isaacson, from the foreword)

This is a bold argument that leaders can help teams become greater than the sum of their parts (Charles Duhigg, author of The Power of Habit)

Team of Teams is erudite, elegant, and insightful. An unexpected and surprising wealth of information and wonder, it provides a blueprint for how to cope with increasing complexity in the world. A must read for anyone who cares about the future - and that means all of us (Daniel Levitin, author of The Organized Mind)

About the Author:
