Like many of Lencioni's books, the information in this book is played out through a realistic business scenario with a comprehensive review of the model at the end. Lencioni defines silos as barriers between departments that make them work against one another. Other words for silos are departmental politics, divisional rivalry, or turf warfare. Lencioni claims that silos happen because leaders don't provide a compelling context for working together. While that is true, the model he proposes seems somewhat simplistic for an organization that has been experiencing years of dysfunctional behavior. Years of conflict will not be resolved by simply defining goals and objectives with accompanying metrics. Human behavior isn't that straight forward. In addition to defining a purpose, organizations may need to rebuild trust, learn to work as teams, and develop better leadership and communication skills, to name a few. Lencioni's model provides a good start, but in my experience, it's incomplete.

Great book! I've read most of Patrick Lencioni's books. This one is just as good as his others. Geared towards a big or bigger compnay. It's a quick read.
