A silo is also a metaphor for organizational units that contain their own management team and talent and lack the motivation or desire to work with or even communicate with other organizational units.
Most organizations are rightly proud of their decentralized structure.
relying on unfettered decentralized organizations with highly autonomous silo units is no longer competitively viable.
Without question, changing the silo’s power and function is almost always going to be arduous, expensive, and very disruptive to the organization.
