Have you ever watched an American Football game, or indeed seen the warm up and thought about just how many players they have available to them?
At BHP Corporate Finance we love our sporting analogies, and so here is another one for you. I was watching the San Francisco 49ers (my team incidentally) in their play off match against the Carolina Panthers and it struck me that there was a number of parallels that could be drawn between BHP and an American Football team.
A football team has two core elements to it, the Offence and the Defence. However, every player in each of these teams performs a specific role, be it a running back, a tackler, wide receiver etc. They also have a number of ‘special teams’ who come onto the pitch to perform a small number of specific tasks, they are special as they are experts at what they do – indeed you could say that about the whole team.
The clever part is how all of these individuals with their specialist talents and skills are brought together to perform and win a game of football. This is especially true as the playoffs are now well and truly underway; the teams remaining in the post season are extremely skilful and well co-ordinated.
