As One

Mehrdad Baghai, James Quigley

Our world is as much about cooperation as it is about conflict; as much about collaboration as competition. Yet our knowledge of collective behavior is still relatively slim. Leaders who have been trained in the command-and-control mode of management are realizing that while it may work effectively in some circumstances, it fails to truly engage people in other situations. In response, management thinkers have proclaimed the end of the command-and-control model and the advent of a new, participatory model. But why should there be only two modes of collective behaviour? For the past two years Deloitte has invested in a major global initiative, the As One Flagship Project, to study effective collaborations. The project concluded that there are many modes of "as one behaviour" and that all are effective in certain contexts. Now this book offers a systematic understanding of As One behavior and bridges the gap between theory and practical advice.
