Peter Drucker, known as the father of modern management, was once asked how he was able to consult successfully with the heads of countries, CEOs of major corporations, small business owners, presidents of non-profits and religious leaders.
Where did he get his great breadth of knowledge to be able to do this? Drucker’s answer was startling but key to his success. “There is no secret. You just need to ask the right questions. "
And what are the right questions? Would not they be based on knowledge and experience? Again, another surprising answer from Drucker.
"It is exactly the opposite. I do not use my knowledge and experience at all. I bring my ignorance to the situation. Ignorance is the most important component for helping others to solve any problem in any industry."
We at BBA have unashamedly built on Drucker’s model with Virtual Solutions, a service that entails one-on-one, online (virtual) interviews that are always confidential (no one will be identified or quoted) to determine strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges of communities and organizations.
Like Drucker, we believe it is not so much what we know -- although the breadth of experience and knowledge of our BBA team is considerable -- but the fact that we ask the right questions of a diverse group of people who best know their community or organization.
The answers are there, waiting to be found, analyzed and acted upon. BBA will help you with that. We will find the solutions.
