Spain used to be very individualistic in its sporting activities. Now we are showing we are pretty good in teams - that is an improvement.
I love practice. It is when a coach exercises the most control over the improvement of his or her team.
Almost all quality improvement comes via simplification of design, manufacturing... layout, processes, and procedures.
Individual commitment to a group effort - that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.
