    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.

    Stanley McChrystal doesn't believe in extreme secrecy. Obviously there are limits, especially when it comes to national security, but keeping all information on a need-to-know basis requires someone knowing who needs to know. Wires get crossed, and the wrong decisions are made. Trust your team, whether in the military or in the office, to be able to handle the information they're given and to respond in an appropriate way.
