Techniques for maximizing a sailboat's performance are remarkably similar to those required to maximize a company's performance.

Changes in the marketplace and pressure from competition likewise compare to the constant wind shifts and ever changing conditions that a crew working together must master on the water.

The keys to successful completion of a goal with all participants working closely together to accomplish said goal carries the same requirements whether in the board room, in the everyday work environment or aboard a vessel racing towards the next mark.

Sailing facilitates the strategic development process and enhances problem solving skills. Its performance depends on interaction between skipper and crew who must react to rapidly changing conditions as a team, which are the same essential team skills required in business.
