Promotional "Headline"

The All Blacks are the world's most successful sporting outfit, undefeated in over 75% of their international matches over the last 100 years. What is the secret of their success? And what can we - as individuals, companies and teams - learn from them?

Description for Sales People

There is an allure to the All Blacks that transcends the sport of rugby and the secrets of their success can be applied to all aspects of our lives.

Description for Press or Other Media

The All Blacks New Zealand rugby team is the world's most successful sporting outfit, undefeated in more than 75 per cent of their international matches during the last century. In other arenas, commanding sides have swept all before them, like the 1980s West Indies cricket team with their fearsome fast bowlers, or the Hungarian football team's sophisticated new passing game that led them to thrash England 7-1 in 1954. But what makes the All Blacks different is their decades-long supremacy - their sheer consistency, longevity and sustained dominance. James Kerr considers the values, principles, rituals and beliefs that propel this team to such extraordinary heights. And asks, what can we - as individuals, companies and teams - learn from them? Whatever field we are in, how can we compete like the All Blacks?
