The Importance of Reducing Drag

I’m catching up on all the sailing magazines that have piled up since Fall, and preparing for another sailing season.  My boat is ready to go in this week, and to prepare it, I made sure it had an adequate coverage of anti-fouling paint to keep aquatic growth from attaching itself to the hull and creating drag.  Like aircraft designers, boat designers are obsessed with eliminating drag.  Leaders should be too because organizations have a strong tendency to accumulate drag in the form of unnecessary meetings, reports, approvals, policies, procedures and diversions.  It’s up to the leader to keep the organization focused on the strategy and to maintain or increase speed.  What do you to reduce drag?
