    Doing some light business reading as one does, I came across a very interesting article on the Patriots business success. It makes for interesting reading.

    Not that we didn't already know that the Patriots plan for long term success both on and off the field, but it is interesting to read the scope of the planning and position value commentary. In light of the McDaniels departure, the succession planning part of this piece should rest all at ease.

    Great find. Thank you.

    For those of us who are in the business-world or who are managers of people or organizations I highly recommend this book. It's a bit dated, but the concepts of building value, teamwork, cross-functional job flexibilty and personnel management are all addressed (with the football spin) in this book.

    Good reading for a flight to Europe or the West Coast!

    It will be interesting in light of the adminstrative and coaching changes to see how the Patriots respond during the 2009 pre-season.

    With the return of Brady imminent (I hope), a plethora of draft picks and personnel changes, it really is an exciting time to be a Patriot supporter.

    Nice article. Kudos to Robert Kraft; it is clear from this article that he has vision and the ability to recognize it in others. It explains the draft picks given to the JETS for BB.

    As an IT guy I would love to see their IT systems and know what software they are running to do all they do.

    I am also confident in a copycat league that RK and BB will always be able to stay ahead of the game, and that is one of the key drivers that keeps BB at Foxborough :singing:
