Before we go into these”Ten Talents”, let us first get some understanding on research part.
And it seems the foundation for building BP10 assessment began in late 1980s when Gallup researchers studied a framework for the process of new venture creation and studied the psychological factors that contribute to successful entrepreneurship.
Gallup studied more than 4,000 builders/entrepreneurs and 30,000 non entrepreneurs to understand –
- What actions, behaviours and decisions lead to successful business creations.
- What separates successful entrepreneurs from less successful
- Detailed job analysis for a successful business venture
They also collected the data on some of the exceptional entrepreneurs such as Inc.500 in US with average growth rate over 3,300%. And the ideas were borrowed/studied in the fields of economics, psychology, biology, anthropology ,sociology and management.
You can find detailed methodology from Gallup if you are curious. => https://www.gallup.com/builder/227249/bp10-methodology-report-pdf-item.aspx
Overall, BP10 assessment is built based on lot of research and data. I think it good to know about the science part of the assessment before believe in it and start embarking your journey of entrepreneurship/builder !!.
