About this event

General McChrystal joins the General Assembly Community to discuss his experience in managing the Joint Task Forces in Iraq in 2004 and how his tactics can be applied beyond the battlefield.

Through scalable management practices that enable large organizations to behave more swiftly, General McChrystal was able to reestablish the U.S. Army as a “Team of Teams”, which possessed the necessary agility and flexibility to beat back Al Qaeda.

Considering the rapid evolution of today’s business landscape, the need to instill an innovative and flexible mindset that is free of bureaucratic constraints has never been more relevant to large corporations. Through a keynote address and short Q&A, General McChrystal will highlight how decentralized decision-making and the breaking down of silos is essential for preventing disruption and maintaining strength as an organization in today’s digital age.

Takeaways

• How bureaucracy can cripple large teams from the U.S. Army to the Fortune 500 • Scalable management tactics to encourage an organization culture that is lean and nimble • Examples of how “Team of Teams” methodology has been implemented from small groups to massive organizations
