  • Once upon a time there was a French rowing team
  • France and Japan aggreed to do an annual rowing race. Each team should contain 8 men. Both teams worked really hard to get in a best shape. The day the race started were both teams in similar condition. Although the Japanese won by 1 mile.
  • The mood in the French team was really close to the freeze point. The top management decided to win the race next year. So they established a team of analysts to observe the situation and recommend an appropriate solution. View slide
  • Although the Japanese FINISH won by 1 mile. View slide
  • After several detailed analysis the team found out that Japanese had 7 rowers and only one captain.
  • Of course the French team had 7 captains but only one rower.
  • Facing such critical scenario the management showed an unexpected wisdom: they hired the consulting company to restructure the French team.
  • After several months the consultants came up with the conclusion that there were too many captains and too few rowers in the French team. A solution was proposed based on this analysis: the structure of the French team has to be changed! As of today there will be only 4 captains in the team led by 2 managers, one top-manager and one rower. Besides that, they suggested to improve the rower’s working environment and to give him higher competencies.
  • FINISH Next year the Japanese won by 2 miles.
  • a top-manager 2 managers 4 captains 1 poor rower
  • The French team immediatelly displaced the rower from the team based on his unsatisfactory performance.
  • But the bonus award was paid to the management for the strong motivation the theam showed during the preparation phase. The consulting company parepared a new analysis, which showed that the strategy was good, the motivation was O.K. but the used tool has to be improved. Currently te French team is designing a new boat.
