Management silos are where innovation dissolves in layers of hierarchy. Great business ideas go wasted every day because employees don’t know what to do with them, and those employees are afraid of wasting company resources trying to figure it out.

We also know that the walls of these silos can be barriers to innovation, as well as a root cause of business dysfunction. As a leader, you can enable the quick action required to take advantage of opportunities.
