Gaining Business Insight from Cricket

Posted by Heather Caouette on 7/28/15 12:36 PM

CEO Girish Navani recently sat down with Fast Company’s David Zax, discussing his love for cricket and the business lessons that can be inferred.

 

Girish has been playing cricket for a large portion of his life. In fact, eClinicalWorks has a team that plays in the New England Cricket Association. In college, he grew just as interested in the NFL and continues to be. 

 

In addition to the usual lessons of athletics, Girish discusses three ways in which cricket, more than some other sports, offers three lessons for business: 

 

1. IT’S A TEAM SPORT LIKE NO OTHER

Girish explains to Fast Company, "Everybody has to play every position of the game…In business, a company’s agility is made possible by this same proficiency to working cross-functionally." 

 

2. IT HAS A STRONG CULTURE 

 

3. LEGACIES ARE HARD EARNED 

 

Girish closes the conversation by noting, "You hope that when your career comes to a close, you’ve left an impression on an industry."
