We have traveled with Schumacher, or to be more precise a life size cut-out of Schumacher to workshops (or what we call pitstops) with leaders and their teams, across dozens of countries for a decade. He has been an invaluable prop in communicating the F1™ philosophy of performance, continuous improvement and teamwork.
Our last book ‘Pitstop to Perform’ was dedicated to Micheal and his family, with these wise words on the inside cover:
My philosophy is never to think you have achieved it!
Always looking for the millimeters/seconds…
… find it on lap 50 of the third day!
