7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 8 April 2006
Format: Hardcover
If you enjoy reading about the evils of organizations that focus on optimizing results for the different functions (silos) rather than the whole enterprise, you'll cheer your way through this book. The indictment part of Silos, Politics and Turf Wars is a clear five-star effort.
If you like fables, you'll find this one engaging. Frustrated by turf wars in his newly merged company, Jude Cousins quits to found his one-man consulting operation. He feels comfortable with the financial cushion that stock in his old company provides, as well as his initial assignments. Then the assignments begin to falter and the stock dives. Jude needs a new approach. Learning that every organization has problems with silos, Jude learns that people overcome silos when they face a real crisis that threatens the enterprise's existence. From that observation, he develops a consulting practice that helps top management teams realize that it's a mistake to wait for the crisis before acting.
If the book left it at that, Silos, Politics and Turf Wars would be a helpful book.
But Mr. Lencioni insists on repeating the same formula in his top management meetings led by Jude. Point out that they would cooperate and be more successful if there were a crisis and someone will say, "Why wait for a crisis?" Then, everyone pulls together.
Well, that's a nice day dream. But even people who want to work together as a top management team need a lot of help to get there. This book is very misleading about what the solution is based on my 30 plus years of working with companies on this very problem. I graded the book down accordingly.
If you don't mind that the book doesn't really have a prescription for solving the problem that Mr. Lencioni so well describes, then you'll feel like this is a five star book.
The writing is particularly smooth and the situations are very interesting to read about. If this were a novel, I wouldn't hesitate to give it five stars.

Format: Hardcover
The book is a wast of time. The story is too naive and the learning really old stuff. Lencioni shouldn't have taken the market milking chance with this or at least have gone more into the material before writing a 'book'

Loved this book. By putting the answer in a narrative Lencioni enticed me to finish the book. I am one of those people who start management and leadership books and lose the will to finish them. This wasn't the case here. The characters he created helped me to relate to the solution and showed sympathy to what so many organisations go through.

A well written and easy to picture fable. I found myself thinking of various close to home organisations as I read, which helps the perspective. Convincing others to follow this process, particularly if you are not the overall boss or a consultant could be a tough one, perhaps the next book could focus on this?

Silos, Politics and Turf Wars: A Leadership Fable About Destroying the Barriers That Turn Colleagues Into Competitors
I bought the Audio Book version as I prefer to listen to books. If you want to gain greater insight into why and how teams become disgusting this should be one of your required reads.
