Lining up the corporate ducks

Hey guys, there’s a lot of extra flapping going on: we need to work on transition when we switch formations.” Any similarity between a group of flying ducks and a corporation trying to get its act together is more than coincidental. A well-oiled organization is like a flock of wild ducks flying south: both are made up of individuals moving energetically toward a common goal. When wildfowl take off or shift formations in flight, they juggle about for quick transition, aligning themselves to take advantage of the aerodynamics of the V formation. By working together and “drafting” off of each other, they create group synergy that speeds them efficiently to their destination.
