Bank Balance – A Strategic Game

Did anyone watch Bank Balance – a game show hosted by Gordon Ramsey?
I was glued to it every night as it represented the importance of having a clear game plan – A STRATEGY!

  • Contestants who had a strategy from the start fared much better than those that were making decisions as they went along.
  • Some started off with a strategy and were skillful in adapting it as the game progressed and presented new challenges and threats.
  • Those with no strategy found themselves in trouble very early on by which point they were doomed to failure.
  • Contestants were in teams of two – and communication was much clearer between the teams with a strategy, as both were on the same page.  Those teams without a strategy were soon bickering and blaming each other when it went wrong.

All great lessons in why a business should have a strategy.

Thanks Gordon
