Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Team of Teams by General Stanley McChrystal, read by Paul Michael.
What if you could combine the agility, adaptability, and cohesion of a small team with the power and resources of a giant organisation?
When General Stanley McChrystal took command of the Joint Special Operations Task Force in Iraq in 2003, he quickly realized that conventional military tactics were failing. The allied forces had a huge advantage in numbers, equipment and training - but none of the enemy's speed and flexibility.
McChrystal and his colleagues discarded a century of conventional wisdom to create a 'team of teams' that combined extremely transparent communication with decentralised decision-making authority. Faster, flatter and more flexible, the task force beat back al-Qaeda.
In this powerful audiobook, McChrystal and his colleagues show how the challenges they faced in Iraq can be relevant to any leader. Through compelling examples, the authors demonstrate that the 'team of teams' strategy has worked everywhere from hospital emergency rooms to NASA and has the potential to transform organisations large and small.

A slow start, but got better

Initially I was wondering if I shouldn't have downloaded this title, but it had been recommended to me so I percavered and glad I did. Lots of stories how it can be achieved and lots of quotes I now use in my training, but little in the way of hands on how to advice. Still worth getting though.

Great concepts that linked where we have come from and where we are going. The important thing is that the authors provide context so the concepts are not lost on you. Recommended for anyone serious about creating the environment and letting the energy flow for teams.
