Good teams

Article in Appointments section of the Sunday Times on 4 June 2006.

Relating to football, with the World Cup on its way. "A team of champions doesn't make a champion team." From this the prediction is that smaller teams with reasonably well educated people who are highly driven by representing their country will do better (e.g. Croatia and Australia). Compare to bigger countries that often disappoint.

I find that the aging workforce is affecting team work in companies. Whereas there used to be a cross section of age and experience, this is no longer the case. In the past the young guys did the running around whilst the older ones could do the thinking. Now the middle agers are doing everything.
