Abstract:

It happens at organizations large and small, profit and nonprofit, at the individual level as well as the group and divisional level. The problem begins when individuals, groups, or divisions -- out of fear -- seek to make themselves vital to their organizations and, unconsciously or sometimes deliberately, try to protect their turf. People who create fiefdoms are determined to do things in their own way, often duplicating or complicating what should be streamlined throughout the company, leading to runaway costs, increased bureaucracy, and a loss of agility and speed. It is a natural human tendency, but if it isn't managed properly, the damage they cause can spell the death knell of what should have been a strong and vital organization.
