From the co-author of the New York Times bestseller Team of Teams, a practical guide for leaders looking to make their organizations flatter and more interconnected.   Too often, companies end up with teams stuck in their own silos, pursuing goals and metrics in isolation. Their traditional autocratic structures create stability, scalability, and predictability -- but in a world that demands constant adaptation, this traditional model fails.   In Team of Teams, retired four-star General Stanley McChrystal and former Navy SEAL Chris Fussell made the case for a new organizational model combining the agility, adaptability, and cohesion of a small team with the power and resources of a giant organization. Now, in One Mission, Fussell channels all his experiences, both military and corporate, into powerful strategies for unifying isolated and distrustful teams.   This practical guide will help leaders in any field implement the Team of Teams approach to tear down their silos, improve collaboration, and avoid turf wars. By committing to one higher mission, organizations develop an overall capability that far exceeds the sum of their parts.   From Silicon Valley software giant Intuit to a government agency on the plains of Oklahoma, organizations have used Fussell’s methods to unite their people around a single compelling vision, resulting in superior performance. One Mission will help you follow their example to a more agile and resilient future.

Editorial Reviews

Whether you are the CEO of a company, the head of a government agency, or the leader of a nonprofit, this book should be the next one you read. MICHÈLE FLOURNOY, CEO of the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) and former under secretary of defense for policy
Businesses that operate using the old command-and-control model struggle to navigate the complex problems of the twenty-first century. With One Mission, organizations have the vocabulary and toolset they need to switch to a Team of Teams model and excel in the information age. DHIRAJ RAJARAM, founder and chairman of Mu Sigma Inc.
Chris Fussell is one of the most dynamic thinkers of our day. His ideas and his perspectives have challenged many of my own assumptions and pushed me to think bigger. I’m smarter because of Chris Fussell. Read this book! SIMON SINEK, optimist and author of Start With Why and Leaders Eat Last
Leaders from all sectors will recognize themselves and their organizations in the pages of One Mission. Fussell is an engaging writer, weaving together stories of his military past with tales of the many businesses that he was worked with. The result is a valuable, practical manual of how to make the necessary changes to become a Team of Teams. ANNE-MARIE SLAUGHTER, president and CEO of New America, author of The Chessboard and the Web
One Mission is required reading for anyone leading people. Fussell’s vivid account of how a team of teams model turned the tide on the battlefield is both inspiring and instructional in helping leaders to navigate the transition from twentieth-century bureaucracy to twenty-first-century complexity. DOUG MCMILLON, president and CEO of Walmart
One Mission sets out the most exciting prospect for re-engineering a twenty-first-century company. For me, this was not a book for bedside reading. I read it upright, taking notes, inspired with thoughts for my own enterprise. Assuming I have the discipline to follow through, these few hours of reading will prove the highest ROI on mytime in a dozen years. DAVID G. BRADLEY, chairman of Atlantic Media
