b00kwg9of4-01-lBook #14: Team of Teams: New Rules of Engagement for a Complex World, Gen. Stanley McChrystal

Our world is becoming more complex.  As we transition from the industrial age to the information age, the speed of information and the quantity of data is increasing on an exponential scale.  Individuals and organizations are increasingly more interconnected.  The traditional model for hierarchy of management is becoming more ineffective and inefficient as the speed of decisions and actions increases.  In this book, Gen. Stanley McChrystal discusses his experience managing the Joint Special Forces Task Force in its fight against Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI).  He describes the failure of traditional model of management in responding to the rapidly evolving AQI and the way this task force adapted to respond to a new threat.  In this book, he outlines the principle of decentralized decision making that can be applied in organizations from the military to cooperate business.  It is a fascinating read for anybody interested in developing leadership skills for the digital age.
