Teamwork Provides Competitive Advantage

“Not finance. Not strategy. Not technology. It is teamwork that remains the ultimate competitive advantage, both because it is so powerful and so rare.”

This is a quote from Patrick Lencioni, author of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team.

We all know that teamwork is fundamental to ensure a company’s success in day-to-day activities. But this quote got me thinking that if an entire team moves in the same direction, truly great things happen — whether on a football team, in a classroom, in a boardroom, or in a fleet facility. Nothing happens independently.

All companies need at least one competitive advantage to get ahead. In a fleet world, perhaps it’s using exceptional technology, brand recognition, best-in-class assembly process, etc.

Whatever your industry, continue to remain committed to your team and you will gain the ultimate competitive advantage.
