Book Knowledge vs
Imagine your company or country has $1,000,000 USD to invest in RT…
Do you hire “Book Knowledge” without any extended field experience?
Or hire “Operational Knowledge” a.k.a the guys and gals who have been out in the field for decades doing the works written about in books?
When success is absolutely required, you hire “Operational Knowledge” not “Book-Talkers” as we know ‘first-hand’ all the realities: situational environs; the diverse range of rural operational stresses, psychologies, cross-cultural nuances, social cultural/social political/social economic oppression tactics etc.; the pitfalls to failure (micro to macro); a variety of rapid assessments; tactically planning and small/large action planning; community mobilization issues, lessons learned, etc.; mapping and assessing a vast variety of supply chains and their external influences – other industries, terrains, weather, special interest groups, etc.; advancing value chains; assessing and solving a variety of community issues that commonly arise; domestic/international public-private partnerships; operational risk assessments, mapping, management and coordination to combat fraud, defraud, extremism, etc.; mapping, assessing and coordinating extreme issues concerning weather/rural health/personal safety/etc.; micro to macro tested and tried solutions; product development/strengthening; project management and enhancing interlinkages (tourism, film, photography, expeditions, etc.); destination development; business linkage development; global marketing; international expos; and so much more… that are not often relayed in books and the best Universities.
