It’s the ultimate CEO dream: to get the various divisions of the company actually working together.
As opposed to, you know, trying to kill each other.
The larger a company is, the more unlikely this is to happen… even if, pound for pound, the larger the company is, the more highly this skill is valued.
As a gapingvoid reader, you already know that without the right culture, it isn’t going to happen. And big press releases talking about “discovering new synergies” can’t help you, either.
The secret is in, I believe, building great teams, the smaller and more autonomous, the better.
