In our parish, are we…Silos or a Network? • Organization Silos are when individual people, departments, or companies, conduct business in a vacuum without taking into consideration the impact their actions have on the entire organization. • Silos are basically large vertical buildings that separate and store material on a farm. When organizations run in silos they are not looking at other aspects and the cause and effect of various activities, so it is referred to as working in a silo. Your own footer Your Logo
In our parish, are we…Silos or a Network? • The Networked Organization has been defined by Lipnack and Stamps as one: • "where independent people and groups act as independent nodes, link across boundaries, to work together for a common purpose; it has multiple leaders, lots of voluntary links and interacting levels."
