The silo effect, Gillian Tett

siloisbn: 9781844087570 is my second book by this author (my blog)  This is am orwell prize longlited book too.

it focuses better on the anthropology while pointing out the problems at sony (my blog) and other institutions whom have lost focus.

Anyhow with a mix of both government and business including banks illustrating professional silos and there detrimental effects.

Part 2 is a bit woolly but points out that many ways of managing risk (see the first book) in the past just don’t work making those organisation ineffective be they commercial or public sector. Which is why there are a lot less banks and bankers than there where in 2000.

A lot of the fault here is due to mba’s who while promoting efficiency create structures that weaken companies with greed and compliance so when the good times stop problems are noticed.
