Reinvention Is Survival

Tottenham On My Mind at related • 0 views

Reinvention is survival. It's one of the most often quoted aphorisms in business because complacency can be as fatal to any enterprise as a economic downturn. Any leader knows that change is necessary but painful. The best way forward is to establish a clear goal that's mutually agreed by everyone and build on existing strengths so that development is gradual rather than a transformative shock.

Saputo is home sweet home for Montreal Impact

What a start for Montreal, at their new (old) home of Saputo Stadium. After a series of games at the city's Olympic Stadium, where the broken Quebec attendance records helped deflect attention from the awkward sight lines and truly terrible artificial pitch, the Impact finally played an MLS game at their refurbished Saputo Stadium and returned home with gusto.
