To end up with a Super Bowl winning football team, the plan to win starts many years prior through the draft process, training camp and throughout each game. Success starts with a game winning strategy and well executed maneuvers on each play.
Football is more than a sport played each Sunday across the country. Football is a year round activity that starts when a player enters the draft, how they are slotted into the team’s roster, the position they play, weekly execution of plays, and when all is in alignment, championships are won.
Marketing a successful managed services business is as simple as building a winning football team. It starts with reviewing the competitive landscape, selecting the right strategic partners to have on your team, working together and executing each and every week and continuing until you win the championship.
And just like football, winning one championship is nice, however when the champagne from the team’s victory is all drunk the process repeats itself right away.
Championship teams continue to build a successful team and repeat the process continuously, changing up when situations warrant a change or when stronger competitors arise.
Another key differentiator between the 32nd team in the NFL and the team that wins the Vince Lombardi trophy annually is coaching. The coaching staff is finely tuned and in alignment with the entire team, and they have the respect of their entire organization.
