There was an interesting moment last Saturday night in the Patriots quest to become the second team to go undefeated for the entire regular season. The Giants had just scored a touchdown to give them 35 points, three shy of the Patriots 38, and the Giants are going to kick an onside kick to try and get the ball back.
In that moment, before the ball was kicked, the fate of the entire undefeated season rested on the shoulders of the Patriots second string players.
As a business it's great to have the marquee talent but just like the Patriots-Giants game your second string will play pivotal roles in the success of the company's projects. That's why it's so important that company's system is set up to enable everyone to engage and contribute.
If the second string is not ready, or doesn't care, or doesn't know what do to on the on-sides kick it a good bet that they don't recover the ball.
