The Team can make adjustments when it knows where it stands!
Every game has its rules and its own definition of what it means to win. Some teams measure their success by points and others by profits. Others view success by the number of people they serve. No matter where you are in the game you have to know where you are in order to understand the score.
You need to know the score in order to make the correct adjustments to improve your performance and to make the correct adjustments. No team can ignore the reality of its situation and expect to win.
For any kind of team, the scoreboard is essential in the following 5 ways:
The Scoreboard Is Essential To Understanding
Have you ever wondered why the scoreboard is so huge and visible? It is a snapshot at any moment of the reality of the game. Even if you arrive late, you can catch up on the story simply by looking at scoreboard.
The Scoreboard Is Essential to Evaluating
I believe that personal growth is the key to success, GROWTH = CHANGE. Coach Lou Holtz once stated; “We aren’t where we want to be, we aren’t where we ought to be; but thank goodness we aren’t where we used to be!”
The Scoreboard Is Essential To Decision Making
Once you have evaluated your situation you are ready to make good decisions. Do you have the right people in the right places. Do you have a grasp of the overall position of your ministry? Have you evaluated key areas for effectiveness? Only after evaluating these key areas will you be able to make sound judgment.
The Scoreboard Is Essential to Adjusting
The higher the level on which you and your team are competing, the smaller the adjustments needed to achieve your best. However, making key adjustments is the secret to winning big. Knowing the scoreboard is vital to making these key adjustments.
The Scoreboard Is Essential to Winning
In the end of the matter no one can win without the scoreboard. How do you know when the game is on the line without the scoreboard. How do you know that time is running out without the scoreboard? Does your ministry view the scoreboard as a necessary evil? You can ignore the scoreboard, but not for long and still expect to do well in your profession.
