Business Intelligence - Tepper and Rhule get it


Recommended Posts

Interviewing employees of your competitor is a long standing practice and an invaluable tool for collecting intelligence.  You do it whenever you can, subject to certain ethical considerations, such as...

Do you actually have an opening you are trying to fill?

Interview separated employees only or those still employed?

Do you induce the disclosure of protected information through the possibility of a job offer?

Your moral compass will determine how you answer the above questions but be careful, if you are too aggressive, you can step over the line into questionable legality.

I have no doubt Tepper is an outstanding businessman. 

is he smart enough to go get Watson?  Black helmets? Smart enough to give out Panther cargo shorts at home games? Jury is still out.

I have been preaching here for a while that in regards to so damn many GM interviews that Tepper was learning more and more about how other teams do things. In other industries this is called Business Intelligence and is expensive as hell to invest it. 

Now Rhule says this... 

 

For a couple of guys this new to the NFL game to take the time and really dig in and see how other teams do things I think is brilliant. They both took a huge trip farther up the learning curve. 

I would think that everyone of those conversations also talked about QB at some point.  Not just what we should do but also trying to gain insight into what other teams might be doing.  Not that the other candidates are going to give away confidential information but any information is a plus.

Is this like some new phenomenon that Tepper and Rhule just figured out?  Seems pretty obvious to me...

It's not like you can just interview GM candidates every month. You actually need a position to fill and if you do it in bad faith you will make enemies fast and shoot yourself in the foot

I hate to tell ya, but if you're not pushing the legal boundaries you're going to be losing to the people who do.

True but do bullet point three the wrong way and you could be facing very expensive litigation.   Even if you win, it could be costly in dollars to defend and business reputation.  YMMV.
