Running around opponents and breaking tackles is great, I wish I was better at it (meaning I’m not sure I’ve ever run around anyone), but you can’t just take off on you own without signaling your intentions to your teammates. If you go right and your support goes left, you’re in trouble. A well practiced team will have a much greater connection between and will have a pretty good read on each other, but you still must communicate.
The same thing applies to business. You can’t have one individual, a department, or division going off on their own without signaling their direction. To be successful, an organization must act as a cohesive unit, with everyone heading in the same direction towards the same goals. To get this to happen, you need a well developed Strategic Plan, a corresponding Action Plan, and an integrated and dynamic Performance Measurement System that ties everyone in to the Strategic Plan.
