Inhaltsangabe: From award-winning columnist and journalist Gillian Tett comes a brilliant examination of how our tendency to create functional departments silos hinders our work and how some people and organizations can break those silos down to unleash innovation.
One of the characteristics of industrial age enterprises is that they are organized around functional departments. This organizational structure results in both limited information and restricted thinking. The Silo Effect asks these basic questions: why do humans working in modern institutions collectively act in ways that sometimes seem stupid? Why do normally clever people fail to see risks and opportunities that later seem blindingly obvious? Why, as psychologist Daniel Kahneman put it, are we sometimes so blind to our own blindness ?
Gillian Tett, journalist and senior editor for the Financial Times, answers these questions by plumbing her background as an anthropologist and her experience reporting on the financial crisis in 2008. In The Silo Effect, she shares eight different tales of the silo syndrome, spanning Bloomberg s City Hall in New York, the Bank of England in London, Cleveland Clinic hospital in Ohio, UBS bank in Switzerland, Facebook in San Francisco, Sony in Tokyo, the BlueMountain hedge fund, and the Chicago police. Some of these narratives illustrate how foolishly people can behave when they are mastered by silos. Others, however, show how institutions and individuals can master their silos instead. These are stories of failure and success.
From ideas about how to organize office spaces and lead teams of people with disparate expertise, Tett lays bare the silo effect and explains how people organize themselves, interact with each other, and imagine the world can take hold of an organization and lead from institutional blindness to 20/20 vision."

Rezension: Praise for THE SILO EFFECT
Highly intelligent, enjoyable and enlivened by a string of vivid case studies. It is also genuinely important, because her prescription for curing the pathological silo-isation of business and government isr efreshingly unorthodox and, in my view, convincing. "Financial Times""

"The Silo Effect" comes across in print much as Tett comes across in person sharp, insightful, and concise. And the book, which is informed as much by her training as an academic anthropologist as by her experience covering the global financial crisis, is an excellent attempt to help both organizations and individuals figure out how to harness the benefits of specialization without creating tunnel vision. " Strategy+Business""

A complex topic and lively writing make this an enjoyable call to action for better integration within organizations. Publishers Weekly"

"In The Silo Effect she applies her anthropologist s lens to the problem of why so many organizations still suffer from a failure to communicate. It s a profound idea, richly analyzed." The Wall Street Journal"

" Silo has become a cliche among management consultants and executives trying to hang onto their jobs by speaking the language of the au courant but Tett gives the metaphor life in her engaging, case-study-filled new book. New York Post"
