What percent of the time is the leading scorer on the winning World Cup team? And what does it have to do with organizational culture?!?

A while back I was fortunate to take part in Dave Ulrich’s day long workshop for the Institute of Human Resource Management, in Nairobi. One of the most interesting bits was his take on organizational culture.
But first, some sports trivia compliments of Dave (note: if you’re not a sports fan like me, hang in there, this is quite cool). Take part in this interactive contest. Once you’ve submitted a guess, add a comment below & I’ll pick a comment at random & award that person a prize (a free song from Itunes). All entries are due by Sunday, July 29th. The answer (including what the heck this has to do with organizational culture) will post Monday, July 30th.
- What percent of the time is the leading scorer (the winner of the Golden Boot) on the team that wins the World Cup?
- What percentage of time is the leading scorer on the basketball team that wins the NBA?
- What percentage of the time is the leader scorer on the hockey team that wins the Stanley cup?
Hint, the answer is the same for all three.
Think you know the answer? Let’s have some fun. Text or tweet your answer following the instructions below.

To text: text 37607 (use that as the ‘phone number’ you’re texting to) & then pick the code, from the chart below, that represents the percentage you think is the right answer. For example if you think ‘always’ is the right answer you’d put 32535 as your message & then hit send. Your regular text rates will apply. Texting is only open to my Canadian cohorts. If you’re not in Canada, no worries you can tweet or go online to submit your vote.
