Model Teams — A manifesto

There are lots and lots of books about teams. Books about how teams work, books about how teams fail. Almost everything about teams has been written up into trendy business books of one form or another. And many of the books use sporting analogies for teams. Baseball seems to be a common one. (see here for examples).

Personally, I sail. And I prefer sailboats as analogies for teams in business for a bunch of reasons. I hope you find the thoughts interesting.




That people will forget what you said or what you did but never forget how you made them feel is true and is one of the saddest facts in the world.
