The bestselling management expert tells how to overcome the "silos" that divide work units and paralyze performance Lencioni's fifth book offers solutions to a key leadership issue-the impact of turf wars and political infighting on organizational effectiveness-written in the form of a realistic but fictional story. The concept of "Silos" (vertical structures within organizations) has become synonymous with barriers to workplace effectiveness and deep political conflict. Silos devastate organizations, kill productivity, push good people out the door, and jeopardize the achievement of corporate goals. They cause stress, exasperation, and disappointment by forcing employees to fight unwinnable battles with people who should be teammates. Like Patrick Lencioni's other successful books, this one tackles a tough business issue in both an entertaining and instructive way. Unlike his other titles, however, this book focuses on not one but four organizations-two universities, a hospital, and a church-all struggling to eliminate their silos and bring a sense of alignment back into place. As with his other books, Lencioni writes Silos, Politics, and Turf Wars as a fictional - but eerily realistic - story. The story is about Jude Cousins, an eager young management consultant struggling to launch his practice by solving one of the more universal and frustrating problems faced by his clients. Through trial and error, he develops a simple yet ground-breaking approach for helping them transform confusion and infighting into clarity and alignment.
