The Dallas Cowboys have not been to the Super Bowl in 16 years, but lead the NFL with a $2.1 billion valuation. In fact, this is the seventh consecutive year that the Cowboys, who recently signed a $500 million, 25-year naming rights deal with AT&T, is the most valuable NFL team.
“So, your business is nothing like an NFL franchise?” asks Prescott. “Well, I suggest otherwise.” What NFL teams have in common is solid business practices with high-level financial management so that at any given time, there is a real-time picture of the financial landscape – and future prospects – of the organization. Moreover, franchise management is fully-engaged, making the most of market position and maximizing opportunities when possible.
