Publisher's Summary

Preview:

Team of Teams by General Stanley McChrystal is an examination of the process he began of restructuring the Joint Special Operations Command management style, from a rigid command structure to a cooperative team comprised of smaller specialized teams. While fighting Al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), General McChrystal noted how the United States and coalition militaries were efficient war-fighting machines, but they were not adaptable or effective against the seemingly disordered AQI. In 2005, after a particularly destructive terrorist attack at the opening of a sewage plant near Baghdad, McChrystal began considering whether the efficient structure was actually hindering the counterinsurgency, preventing them from responding to threats in real time and delaying the capture of AQI leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

Modern military management originated at the 1900 World's Fair, when Frederick Winslow Taylor revealed his work in steel production efficiency. Taylor believed that there is a right way to do any given thing....

Kind of awful audio version of a fascinating book

I decided to try out Audible because I understood that the book I wanted to read, Team of Teams, was going to read by its author. Sadly it is bring read by a robot-sounding voice of a man that is making it impossible for me to listen to this.

Not the book only a Preface

This was disappointing - I thought I was buying the book. It was not clear that I was not buying the book. Very disappointing.

Use for deciding to read the entire book or not

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you're considering reading "Team of Teams" this summary is worthwhile. If you're looking to gain the same value as reading the whole thing, forget it. I had the chance to hear McChrystal last week and was pleasantly surprised. Instead of hearing a review of his leadership and military experience (interesting but not terribly useful) he gave what I considered valuable insight into some of the changes many organizations (including terrorist and military organizations) are going through.

Not worth the time

The robotic reading of this summary is mindnumbing, it's like hearing a story read by the maid from the Jetsons.

new leadership effectiveness for business teams

I enjoyed this book, it is simple, understandable, and directly applicable as new methods to bring results, build trust, build up leadership equity, and build in agile response to project deliverables.
