When General Stanley McChrystal took command of the Joint Special Operations Task Force in 2004, he quickly realized that conventional military tactics were failing. Al Qaeda in Iraq was a decentralized network that could move quickly, strike ruthlessly, then seemingly vanish into the local population. The allied forces had a huge advantage in numbers, equipment, and training—but none of that seemed to matter. To defeat Al Qaeda, they would have to combine the power of the world’s mightiest military with the agility of the world’s most fearsome terrorist network. They would have to become a "team of teams"—faster, flatter, and more flexible than ever.
In Team of Teams, McChrystal and his colleagues show how the challenges they faced in Iraq can be relevant to countless businesses, nonprofits, and organizations today. In periods of unprecedented crisis, leaders need practical management practices that can scale to thousands of people—and fast. By giving small groups the freedom to experiment and share what they learn across the entire organization, teams can respond more quickly, communicate more freely, and make better and faster decisions.
Drawing on compelling examples—from NASA to hospital emergency rooms—Team of Teams makes the case for merging the power of a large corporation with the agility of a small team to transform any organization.
In One Mission, former Navy SEAL Chris Fussell draws on his extensive experience of high-pressure team work to show how organizations can apply lessons from the field to successfully transform their way of doing business – becoming flatter, quicker, and much more collaborative across departments and divisions.
'Chris Fussell is one of the most dynamic thinkers of our day. His ideas and his perspectives have challenged many of my own assumptions and pushed me to think bigger. I’m smarter because of Chris Fussell. Read this book!'
Simon Sinek, bestselling author of Start With Why
Whilst sharing his own military experience, Fussell explores examples of transition in companies ranging from industry titans like Intuit and Under Armour to small businesses, which have all adopted the ‘Team of Teams’ model in order to unite everyone around single compelling mission. The result is a ‘shared consciousness’ that drives consistently better results with less friction and inter-group rivalry.
One Mission is a practical handbook for any leader looking to evolve their workforce into a highly mobile and effective unit and inspire their teams to look beyond their narrow field of vision to understand – and effectively contribute to – the organization’s one true mission.
The steps of transition include:
· Achieving strategic alignment: communicating organizational priorities down the chain of command.
· Determining operating rhythm: organizing regular company catch up and feedback sessions.
· Setting up communication and decision-making processes: developing a hybrid decision-making structure to empower and inspire every person on the team.
· Shifting leadership behaviour: ensuring successful transition with radical humility by starting with the leader and continuing down the chain of command.
