As the NFL draft approaches later this month, you might take some time to consider your own team. Do you have the right team in place to produce legendary results? High performance teams start with careful planning - as a leader, you must figure out how to bring your strategy, execution and players' skills together to win.

Your teams have missed a few important client deadlines.
