Team of Teams
New Rules of Engagement for a Complex World
In "Team of Teams", retired four-star general Stanley McChrystal shares a powerful new leadership model based on his experience as commander of Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) in the War on Terror. He explains how the conventional, top-down hierarchy of the US military was overwhelmed by today's faster, more interdependent world, and how JSOC remade itself into a network that combined centralized communication with decentralized authority. This book shows how similar shifts are possible in all organizations, from large companies to startups to governments, and how the best organizations think and act like a team of teams. Using evidence from his military career, the private sector, and sources such as hospital emergency rooms and NASA's space program, McChrystal presents a compelling, effective solution.
