The military case for sharing knowledge (TED talk)

General Stanley McChrystal explains how the US Intelligence agencies began sharing information, rather than holding it in silos. Previously it was only available on a demonstrable need to know basis. The idea has shifted to one of finding the people who should know, but don’t, and getting the information to them as quickly as possible. The culture went from knowledge is power, to sharing is power, and being part of a team, where information is the link between the team, and not the blocker.
