This is an interesting graphic (2012 Lemelson-MIT Invention Index)  illustrating the perspectives from our youth.  It also reminds us all that Steve Jobs, among many other brilliant people in the past, may have been one of the greatest innovators an inventors of all time.

We would hope and dream that individuals have been inspired by great innovators and entrepreneurs of the world, to carry on essential creative and build beneficial companies, products and services.

Hockey is like a business

Strategy Plan One 

January 29, 2012 

In the middle of the NHL Allstar game, I thought it would be fun to post the similarities between hockey and business.   Check out our list, and feel free to comment and add:

Goals

  • Hockey – one goal of a hockey team is to score goals
  • Business – set goals and achieve them

Team Work

  • Hockey – need six players on ice and multiple lines firing and working together to achieve wins
  • Business – need all employees and units collaborating and working together to achieve  company goal and objectives

Competition

  • Hockey – depends how many teams you have in your league, represents how many competitors you have
  • Business – depends how many similar businesses are competing in your industry, markets and local area

Revenue Goals

  • Hockey – the more hockey goals (wins, cups) that are achieved, the more revenue the team makes
  • Business – the more company goals that are achieved, the more revenue that the company makes

Leadership

  • Hockey – hockey teams have GMs, coaches and captains that lead different levels of the organization to achieve goals
  • Business – business organizations have CEOs, GMs, Managers, and Supervisors that lead different levels of the organization to achieve company goals

What’s your take on hockey – business similarities?
