Team of Teams : New Rules of Engagement for a Complex World by Stanley A McChrystal( Recording )

5 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this powerful book, McChrystal and his colleagues show how the challenges they faced in Iraq can be relevant to countless businesses, nonprofits, and other organizations. The world is changing faster than ever, and the smartest response for those in charge is to give small groups the freedom to experiment while driving everyone to share what they learn across the entire organization. As the authors argue through compelling examples, the team of teams' strategy has worked everywhere from hospital emergency rooms to NASA and has the potential to transform organizations large and small

A case study in security sector reform : learning from security sector reform/building in Afghanistan (October 2002-September 2003) by Jason C Howk( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Security sector reform (SSR) is that set of policies, plans, programs, and activities that a government undertakes to improve the way it provides safety, security, and justice. This paper provides a case study to help explain the SSR concepts that were recently formalized in U.S. Army Field Manual 3.07, "Stability Operations Doctrine." It provides insights into how the military interacts with host-nation governments, the United Nations, the State Department, and national embassies to solve today's complex problems. The author's experience revealed many pitfalls in security sector building and international team-building that we are trying to avoid today. The author points out the synergy that was lost because of a lack of coordination and understanding between government officials and nongovernmental organizations like aid groups, academia, and think tanks

As commander of Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), General Stanley McChrystal discarded a century of management wisdom and pivoted from a pursuit of mechanical efficiency to organic adaptability. In this book, he shows how any organization can make the same transition to act like a team of teams - where small groups combine the freedom to experiment with a relentless drive to share their experience. Drawing on a wealth of evidence from his military career and sources as diverse as hospital emergency rooms and NASA's space program, McChrystal frames the existential challenge facing today's organizations, and presents a compelling, effective solution

The praetorians by Jean Lartéguy( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jean Larteguy's unflinching sequel to The Centurions, a searing novel of modern warfare admired by military experts, with a foreword by General Stanley McChrystal. Based on the events of May 1958 in France and Algeria, The Praetorians picks up in the footsteps of The Centurions, which was called "a stunning reflection of modern war" by Stanley McChrystal. After turning to tactics of guerilla warfare, a group of French paratroopers serving in the Algerian War is called to answer for actions they consider necessary, however immoral. Fearing another loss of French honor, they plot a coup that results in the return to power of Charles de Gaulle and the death of one of their own. With resonance to modern conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere, The Praetorians further develops some of Larteguy's most persistent and pertinent themes: counterinsurgency, the ugly, morally conflicted nature of modern war, and the seemingly unbridgeable gulf between the experiences of soldiers and of the civilians they serve."--

One mission : how leaders build a team of teams by Chris Fussell( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In One Mission, former Navy SEAL Chris Fussell draws on his extensive experience of high-pressure teamwork to show how organizations can successfully transform their way of doing business - become flatter, quicker and much more collaborative across departments and divisions. The result is a 'shared consciousness' around a single compelling mission that drives consistently better results. Using case studies, such as Intuit and Under Armour, One Mission shows how to harness the agility, adaptability and cohesion of small teams, and break down company silos to deliver extraordinary results across any size organization

My share of the task by Stanley A McChrystal( )

In this illuminating memoir, McChrystal frankly explores the major episodes and controversies of his eventful career. He delves candidly into the intersection of history, leadership, and his own experience to produce a book of enduring value. Joining the troubled post-Vietnam army as a young officer, McChrystal witnessed and participated in some of our military's most difficult struggles. He describes the many outstanding leaders he served with and the handful of bad leaders he learned not to emulate. He paints a vivid portrait of the traditional military establishment that turned itself, in one generation, into the adaptive, resilient force that would soon be tested in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the wider War on Terror

Pale horse : hunting terrorists and commanding heroes with the 101st Airborne Division by Jimmy F Blackmon( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

PALE HORSE is the remarkable first-hand, never-before-told account of an army aviation task force during combat in the Afghan War, told by the commanding colonel who was there. Set in the very valleys where the attacks of 9/11 were conceived, and where ten Medals of Honor have been earned since that fateful day the war began, the narrative races from ferocious firefights and bravery in battle to the quiet moments where the courageous men and women of Task Force Pale Horse catch their breath before they take to the skies again. Colonel Jimmy F. Blackmon writes like he fights--with a power and hard-hitting honesty that leaps off the page. He has the respect of the men and women of his brigade, and a command of the narrative to tell their story. These are warriors from a variety of backgrounds who learned selflessness and found the closest brotherhood they ever knew through the crucible of war. PALE HORSE both honors and commemorates the service of this elite brigade from the unique vantage point of the colonel who loved them
