Much of the problem of lack of competitiveness of a company lies in the outdated and inefficient processes they use. Just because something works well does not mean that it works as it should function, that is in the best shape possible. Nothing is more inefficient than efficient to do the unnecessary, processes can be as efficient as unnecessary, which means they can be eliminated and the result will improve. In times of crisis all processes should be reviewed in light of new technologies and methodologies, not sheltered from the ego of one who is convinced he had created his leadership and involvement with the company more efficient and productive as possible. Efficiency is a relative concept and should be examined in comparison with their peers horizontal sector within and outside the country, especially with the leaders and vertical comparisons with those who supply or demand your product or service and how they used or could be induced to produce when you are not your best alternative.
All processes can be improved sooner or later there will be someone who can make better or more efficiently or technology to ensure the same or better results at lower cost. Creativity and innovation will always serve those who want to use to become better and benefit from its existence.

A team true is one in which people are part of the group, are both the perfect complement to the successful completion of an activity. It is not enough that each is effective at what it does, it must be efficient in providing the target group and how their co complements teammates to achieve individual and common benefit at the same time.
Imagine a football team made up of real stars, but do not get results. 11 of the best goalkeepers in the world put on a football field are not sufficient in order to be considered a team. The teams need to be additional members each, ie people with common skills and capabilities that can contribute to the achievement of a common work when someone is missing or needs support because the activity outside its scope of time and effort to perform them. In the case of the football team, is an additional front in case of injury can replace a striker who was injured. But they also need additional members, namely those that provide knowledge and others do not possess skills that are necessary for the success of the activity. In the football team, the defenders are complementary, with the midfielders and strikers goalkeeper, because each has certain skills that together make possible the efficient conduct of the proposed group activity. So do not take groups team of people working together, is to make their knowledge and skills to effectively complement the other to be competitive and successful. When talking to team in times of crisis I am referring to accept and give help to others to paddle together and leave the rapid and successful.
