Information Silos

Information silos is a term that captivated my interest today. I was reading an article in the June edition of the Time magazine when i came across an article 'We've all got the GM problem' by Rana Faroohar.

I was amazed to read about how a paucity of communication between the various departments in the GM company accentuated a very serious problem of ignition switch. The problem had also caused a few deaths.

I was left wondering about how humanity has experienced this problem at various levels. Silos need to be avoided at all costs. We need to communicate at various levels in order to benefit the society.

So, how do we bust silos and create a better communication line across various departments of an organization, societies, individuals etc?

It is something for you and me to consider. Public interface systems, interactive platforms and a sense of common goals for the greater good of the society need to be followed.
