Nice! it was a quick read as it’s familiar territory for me and I agree. [at least with the chapter presented smile emoticon ]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russell_L._Ackoff had a lot to say about the problems of “University” ‘silo thinking as well through the many talks he gave over the decades about Systems Thinking: he popularized it in business and military although it never made much of a dent in education.
He actually succeeded in getting the White House, under the Clinton and Bush administrations prior to his death, to start adopting https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Systems_thinking to improve organizational efforts.
How successful that was of course remains to be seen.
