    Former general Stanley McChrystal held a key position for much of the War on Terror, as head of the Joint Special Operations Command. In Iraq he found that despite the vastly superior resources, manpower, and training of the US military, Al Qaeda had an advantage because of its structure as a loose network of small, independent cells. Those cells wreaked havoc by always staying one step ahead, sharing knowledge with each other via high-tech communications.

They proved that the agility, adaptability, and cohesion of small teams could be scaled up to large organizations while breaking down the silos that frequently cause problems.

    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.

     In One Mission, former Navy SEAL Chris Fussell draws on his extensive experience of high-pressure teamwork to show how organisations can apply lessons from the field to successfully transform their way of doing business - becoming flatter, quicker and much more collaborative across departments and divisions. Along with sharing his own military experience, Fussell explores industry titans like Intuit and Under Armour, which have adopted the ‘Team of Teams’ model in order to unite everyone around single compelling mission.
