Sports Team

If you were to take the concepts of running a sports team and apply it to the business world, what would it look like?

What would approximate
  • practices (called 'training' outside North America)?
  • drills?
    • example in basketball: the drill called 3 on 2 on 1 which simulates the fast break in a game: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpXqZTiUKyc
    • what's an analogous example in the business/work world? Something that simulates the real thing on a smaller scale, that makes you prepared for something similar actually happening?
  • visualization: in high school basketball games, my coach would ask the team to imagine yourself rebounding, shooting, passing, etc., before a game. Do businesspeople/workers do this? Should they?
  • road trips and home court advantage. Offsite meetings?
