From strategy, to action, to impact, we unleash the power of your people to drive…
By Gillian Tett, award-winning columnist and journalist.
Here at Synergy we work with global companies that often find themselves in a siloed culture. But, break them down and the opportunities for collaboration are endless.
Gillian Tett gives us a brilliant examination of how our tendency to create functional departments silos hinders our work and how some people and organisations can break those silos down to unleash innovation.
“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? From ideas about how to organise 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.
