The article focuses on the use of the ensemble structure as the appropriate business model for industrial management in the U.S. The ensembles and silos have similarities in the number of partners and obligations in sharing expenses but have their corresponding disadvantages in terms of flexibility. Working with a partner is an opportunity to observe each other and to learn work habits and styles. However, the ensemble limits the capacity of the other partner to supersede one's preferences or desire to dictate an outcome.
