The Silo Effect: The Peril of Expertise and the Promose of Breaking Down Barriers

 The Silo Effect:
The Peril of Expertise and the Promise of Breaking Down Barriers

Friday, October 16
12 p.m. (PT)/2 p.m. (Central)/3 p.m. (ET)
A Live & Online Broadcast

For Beyond 50's "Business" talks, listen to an interview with Gillian Tett.  She is the managing editor of "Financial Times."  She'll talk about the "silo syndrome" that to her is a paradox of the modern age.  We live in a world that is closely integrated in some ways; but fragmented in others.  People can be trapped in their little specialist departments, social groups, teams, or pockets of knowledge.  Or, it might be said, inside their silos.  Tett will make her case from an anthropological perspective.  She'll also share stories to illustrate how stupidly people can behave when they are mastered by silos.  It can hinder productivity.
