BizBrain IQ Test: The Suprising Results


Reading time ( words)

With an introduction by Barry Matties, publisher, I-Connect007

Introduction

When David Dibble was only 24 years old, with just $5,000, he started a PCB company—in a garage. He built it to a profitable $10 million in sales and 200 employees making printed circuit boards.

Focusing upon the work of W. Edwards Deming, Peter Senge, Buckminster Fuller, Ilya Prigogine, and John S. Bell, David became an expert in workplace systems improvement. Since 1990, he has been training and consulting using his Four New Agreements for Leaders and Managers as a proven model for sustainable organizational transformation, with remarkable results. Today, he is the president of Dibble Leaders.

I-Connect007 worked with David to formulate the Biz Brain IQ Test, which we offered to readers during the last several months within I-Connect007 publications. Below are the combined responses from the 170 people who completed the quiz, representing a cross-section of disciplines from our industry.

The highest possible score for the Biz Brain IQ Test is 200. The average result was 120, while the highest score we saw was 167.

Emerging Engineers: Audra Thurston

To be honest: I was skeptical when I first heard IPC APEX EXPO 2021 was going to be virtual. We have all attended too many Zoom meetings that are not engaging, and it is easy for virtual events to fall into this stereotype. However, after attending this one I am a full supporter of the virtual format and hope the IPC considers a hybrid format for future conferences!
