The 8 Man Rotation. ...

The 8 Man Rotation.

In basketball parlance, it refers to the five starters and three players off the bench who play the primary amount of minutes during a game. Given that most basketball rosters contain 12 or more players, the coach has decided that the combination of
these 8 players provides the team with the best opportunity to win. Team chemistry and production are at its maximum.

The keys to success with an 8 man rotation and sports is not much different than the keys to success in human resource management. As co-contributor Steve Boese writes, “Where else but in big-time sports can you see the effects of talent assessment, recruiting, leadership, and employee engagement played out, in public, under the spotlight, every day of the
year? What players to draft, which ones to develop, which ones to cut loose, and how to build the right mix of personalities and talent to achieve team goals are the primary concern of all sports franchises.”

Steve’s quote could just as easily be, “What employees to hire, which ones to develop,
which ones to cut loose, and how to build the right mix of personalities and talent to achieve team goals are the primary concern of all managers.”

This volume contains 40 posts on Sports and HR from the authors of the HR Capitalist, Rehaul.com, Fistful of Talent, The Tim Sackett Project, and True Faith HR.

We hope it is the first of what becomes a yearly edition published each January.
