US Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal (Ret.) realized that fighting against al-Qaeda was impossible within the military’s traditional command-and-control structures. His innovative “Team of Teams” approach created a quick, flexible and knowledgeable network on the scene, which made significant strides against terrorism. Now retired, McChrystal – and his consultancy – help businesses deploy Team of Team principles for business implementation. In this interview by leadership writer and consultant Brook Manville, McChrystal honestly addresses the challenges his firm has faced in making the system work for business clients and explains the most important lessons for business leaders to learn. McChrystal’s method is an innovation in progress. getAbstract recommends staying tuned.
