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?
