In yet another page-turner, New York Times best-selling author and acclaimed management expert Patrick Lencioni addresses the costly and maddening issue of silos, the barriers that create organizational politics. Silos devastate organizations, kill productivity, push good people out the door, and jeopardize the achievement of corporate goals. As with his other books, Lencioni writes Silos, Politics, and Turf Wars as a fictional-but eerily realistic-story. The story is about Jude Cousins, an eager young management consultant struggling to launch his practice by solving one of the more universal and frustrating problems faced by his clients. Through trial and error, he develops a simple yet ground-breaking approach for helping them transform confusion and infighting into clarity and alignment.

Review quote

"...full of common sense...memorable" (Publishers Weekly, January 30, 2006) "...an excellent book that nearly everyone will identify with and benefit from..."

(The British Journal Of Administrative Management, February/March 07) "...if your business experiences politics... this book may be for you." (EN, the magazine for entrepreneurs, January 2008)

Flap copy

But Jude would not find his answer in any book. It would find him, in a more surprising way than he could ever have imagined. In yet another page-turner, New York Times best-selling author and acclaimed management expert Patrick Lencioni addresses the costly and maddening issue of silos, the barriers that create organizational politics. Silos devastate organizations, kill productivity, push good people out the door, and jeopardize the achievement of corporate goals. As with his other books, Lencioni writes Silos, Politics, and Turf Wars as a fictional--but eerily realistic--story. The story is about Jude Cousins, an eager young management consultant struggling to launch his practice by solving one of the more universal and frustrating problems faced by his clients. Through trial and error, he develops a simple yet ground-breaking approach for helping them transform confusion and infighting into clarity and alignment. Lencioni's latest fable is as practical as it is engrossing. Anyone who has lived through corporate turf wars or experienced the absurdity of departmental politics will find Silos, Politics, and Turf Wars an invaluable resource.
