The purpose of this capstone is to identify and analyze the factors that contribute to team success in the National Football League through a review of relevant literature, a survey of league personnel, and firsthand experience as a football administrator. This project first studies quantitative data regarding player acquisition, specifically the data behind the NFL entry draft. Next, the current literature regarding off the field processes such as leadership, organizational culture and engagement were reviewed and finally, a two-step Delphi method survey was distributed to a panel of current league professionals. This paper aims to find the most efficient and effective way for teams to acquire players and several ways to optimize that talent based on the best practices researched in organizational culture and leadership.
