Shane Murphy is a workforce optimization expert and an evangelist of an organizational strategy he calls “Team-led Team.” Most recently, Shane used this concept to elevate an auto parts software team’s performance to unprecedented levels.

Shane is an ardent Liverpool supporter, so we also draw parallels between team management in the “beautiful game” and business.
