Why are business silos such a persistent problem, and how do you break them down once and for all?

The problem is in the concept of Value Chain - I preserve my 'node', my process and do not care about others. My value is Value though it may be irrelevant to the enterprise business goal and objectives. If I bring money, I do not care much about these objectives.

Also, if I have my process, I'll do anything to protect it from failure, i.e. from any changes. Also, if my process depends on somebody's work, I better acquire this one to control/manage to protect my process and its value.

This is why we still have silos. Thus, isolated value and process-centric mentality is in fault.
