Glamorgan County Cricket Club
In the 2010 pre-season, Matthew Maynard invited me to bring The Twelfth Player process to Glamorgan. It had been a very long time since Glamorgan won a County Championship cricket match at Lords. Fifty-six years in fact. But that stop situation was finally broken, when the Welsh side crushed Middlesex by seventy-six runs in the second game of the 2010 season.
Glamorgan then followed that success, with a dramatic two-day win at Worcester. The first time they have won a match in two days since 2002! And this is the first time that Glamorgan have won two games in April – ever!
Then Glamorgan won successive matches by an innings since 1948, and followed up that achievement by amazingly setting a world record in their next match, a stunning defeat of Leicestershire. Trailing by 125 runs on the first-innings, Glamorgan bowled The Foxes out for only 71 runs.
Then went on the get the winning total of 196 runs, without the loss of a wicket. A world-record for a team trailing by such a first-innings deficit.
Glamorgan won only two County Championship matches in 2009. In the 2010 season they won seven matches. A significant improvement.
The management of Unilever Turkey Food Services Division, were struggling with fear of failure, and decision-making inhibition caused by past mistakes. So they called for a Twelfth Player process, to help them to re-imagine the future of their world-wide business.
Empowered to think differently, and no longer burdened by fear of failure, they created an original and imaginative vision for the business that was way beyond what they had dared imagine was possible!
They brought Unilever Turkey into the 21st century, positioning themselves as leaders in their field.
