Harnessing star power: What every leader can learn from top NHL teams

Hockey puckNew research has found important lessons for leaders on the ice and in the boardroom.

Using data from five National Hockey League seasons, researchers from the University of Waterloo have shown that long-term success is largely determined by a team’s tendency to save their best players for situations in which these players would have the most impact.

What this shows, according to the study, is that that the amount of human capital an organization has at its disposal is not its ultimate driver of success -- it is how the organization puts their human capital to use.
