Football, Leadership and Manufacturing Strategy

Lessons From The Lombardi Power Sweep

Vince Lombardi's Green Bay Packers dominated American pro football for almost ten years. They won five NFL championships and two Superbowl victories. Lombardi's signature play was the Power Sweep and Green Bay used it over and over.

The team did not seem special before Lombardi's arrival-- they had been losing for years. Lombardi himself said "There's nothing special about the power sweep." Yet, there must have been something very special about the play, the team, the strategy, the leadership or all the above.

Indeed, Vince Lombardi knew a lot about strategy and leadership (not to mention football). And, the Lombardi Power Sweep says a lot to strategic thinkers, planners and leaders, whatever their field of endeavor.

Learn more about the Lombardi Power Sweep and how it can help your company become manufacturing champions.

All The Best,

Quarterman Lee
