The traditional “silo” system of management, in which departments are specialized and don’t share information, is a common way of doing business, especially in IT. Many IT workers today operate in silos, but that doesn’t have to be the case. In fact, it shouldn’t be – a 2017 article by McKinsey found that silos cause tunnel vision and weak performance in employees, and that collaboration improved productivity by 30%. Still, it can be hard to change an entrenched organizational structure, and many business owners have difficulty in breaking down silos and fostering collaboration between departments. Where should companies begin when they’re trying to overturn methods that have gotten them this far to begin with?
