If this title attracted your attention, you probably need OBM. But just how badly is your organization or team suffering without it? Take this quick quiz to find out.

If that quiz seemed silly to you, it was supposed to. But, sadly, a lot of managers engage in techniques more like options a and b, than like c.  If you need help managing in ways aligned with some or all of the option c answers, reach out to an OBM expert within or outside your organization.

What do you think about the quiz?  Should it include more things?  Let us know in the comments below, and be sure to subscribe to bSci21 via email to receive the latest articles directly to your inbox!
