Team of Teams
- New Rules of Engagement for a Complex World
- By: General Stanley McChrystal, David Silverman, Tantum Collins, and others
- Narrated by: Paul Michael
- Length: 12 hrs and 6 mins
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.
A must read!

Great stories, sound research, practical insights
The sound evidence base and high stake situations, combined with insights on what this might mean for the corporate world meant Team of Teams a worthwhile additional to the library. At times the presenter pace was a little slow and there was a degree of repetition, but this was relatively minor given the overall insight the book offers. Recommended.
