Bench Strength

We’ve all heard the old adage, “May the best team win.” But what makes a team the “best?”

Why does one team make it to the Super Bowl while another team does not? And how does this relate to your business?
Winning teams don’t just happen. It takes planning and commitment to create a winner. Teams and businesses must plan for the future and the eventual changes that will occur.
A football team that wins the Super Bowl one year and doesn’t make the playoffs the following year as a result of player losses is a great example of an organization with no bench strength.
In other words, there wasn’t an effective planning process that developed the skills in the people who “rode the bench” to lead the team the following year. 
Having a strong team today doesn’t insure that you’ll have a strong team tomorrow. Bench strength is a
strategic concern for every business, and a key component to that strategy is succession planning.
Don’t focus solely on your current key performers; work on identifying and developing your future “starters.”
