How to Smash Organization Silos and Empower Employees - Phil McKenzie

In Chapter 8 of 12 in his 2010 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, media and publishing entrepreneur Phil McKenzie shares his views on why now is the time to smash silos of traditional organizational structure models. McKenzie feels overly narrow focus limits individual and organizational potential. He agrees checks and balances, specifically in role definition, are necessary to prevent chaos while encouraging empowerment through functional flexibility.  Phil McKenzie graduated from Howard University and earned an MBA from the Duke University Fuqua School of Business.  Before starting FREE DMC and the Influencer Conference, McKenzie worked for eight years in sales and trading at Goldman Sachs.
