9781844087587: The Silo Effect: Why putting everything in its place isn't such a bright idea

In Silo, award-winning journalist Gillian Tett examines the structural development of institutions such as UBS, Sony and the Bank of England. While the world is increasingly interlinked in some senses, it remains profoundly fragmented in others. As organizations become larger and more global than ever before, they are apt to be divided and sub-divided into numerous different departments to facilitate productivity. However, there is a trap to the inevitability of these silos. The tunnel vision and tribalism that silos can lead to makes groups less innovative and can lead to disastrous mistakes.Institutions worldwide are made up of silos operating in isolation from one another. Silo is an eye-opening account that takes a radical anthropological approach in suggesting how we might draw them back together.

Review:

Useful for work - and for life -- Anne Ashworth * The Times * Supremely wise -- Rohan Silva * Evening Standard * Gillian Tett is a gifted, innovative and informative writer . . . Tett writes beautifully and her book is full of insights. Those who do not know her work should make up for the oversight -- Vince Cable * New Statesman * This is not just a business book * The Economist * Highly intelligent, enjoyable and enlivened by a string of vivid case studies. It is also genuinely important . . . her prescription for curing the pathological silo-isation of business and government is refreshingly unorthodox and, in my view, convincing -- Felix Martin * Financial Times * A profound idea, richly analyzed * Wall Street Journal (Europe) * Here's a piece of advice: read The Silo Effect, if only because your boss may already be immersed in Gillian Tett's latest study on how organisations can go badly awry. You would not want to be caught unawares, now, would you? Also, you might be missing something rather brilliant. Yes, honestly . . . Tett's anthropological approach adds academic rigour and richness' -- Anne Ashworth * The Times * Engagingly written, this is also a history of our need to classify the world and how that can be our downfall -- Hazel Davis * The Times *
