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 fascinating approach "

    This book is a great read and I thoroughly recommend it to people working in large and small organisations alike. It's full of very clear ideas which can be applied practically. I'll be taking lessons back to my organisation and can't wait to be part of a 'team of teams'.

    "Beyond command and control"

    Thought provoking and brilliant, well worth a read. military decentralisation of control when efficiency just isn't working.

    "Collaborative mgt in an compelling setting"

    good audio book.
    well read.
    Covers a lot of standard collaborative management theory but in a setting that keep you reading/listening long after other books have gone in the drawer.
