Prof. Dr. Gerd Nufer (Reutlingen University) wrote a very interesting essay on this specific subject. I’d like to share with you a few insights…

Since management and sports follow the same objective of achieving highest performance, correlations between these two fields nowadays become increasingly interesting in terms of corporate and business unit strategy.

In all kinds of sports athletes follow the same overall objective – winning. Before the athletes start to prepare for the next tournament or competition, they first think about their dreams and their objectives. In line with their resources they then determine their vision that will lead them through the tough times, support them when they have to suffer from a defeat and reminds them of their dream when they start again. Nowadays, almost every company has a formulated vision that describes two or three main objectives in the future.
