Forgive the language – but here in Ottawa there has been a shitstorm of controversy.
Here is the short form of the story;
1) Ottawa little league soccer creates a mercy rule that states when teams get 5 goals ahead of their opponent, they should stop scoring goals.
2) If the team does not go easy enough – and score another goal – they automatically lose the game!
(does that count for own-goals too?)
Imagine doing this in business?
Team A is pulled from the account because they kick butt??
Go to the lowest common denominator?
The lowest common denominator in business is always mediocrity
