Silos and Slabs in Organizations
Many of today’s organizations are highly-structured and complex, which can make communicating and getting the job done difficult. We look at two characteristics of their formal structures – silos and slabs - and the challenges they present to managing, and then investigate ways to manage across and beyond them.
This topic will provide you with an opportunity to:
- Understand the effects of silos and slabs within organizations.
- Understand how these structures can act as barriers to getting things done.
- Challenge yourselves to manage together beyond formal structure.
Here's How it Works
This is a new approach to developing leaders created by Henry Mintzberg and Phil Lenir. The building blocks are 90 minute sessions for small groups of managers guided by our themed discussion guides.
World renowned thinkers such as Mintzberg, Schein, Adler, Ulrich, and over 30 more have captured their ideas and pedagogy on a broad range of topics in our 75 themed discussion guides. These are the foundation to leadership programs, high potential programs, reflection cafes, cultural change initiatives and more.
