Right Question Innovation Initiative

How do you know that you, your colleagues and employees are asking the right questions at work?
We believe that asking the right questions is essential for business success and innovation. And we are not alone.

“The most common source of management mistakes is not the failure to find the right answers. It is the failure to ask the right questions… Nothing is more dangerous in business than the right answer to the wrong question”

– Peter Drucker

“In the old economy, it was all about having the answers. But in today’s dynamic, lean economy, it’s more about asking the right questions.”

– Eric Ries, author of The Lean Start-Up

The Right Question Institute has been working for over twenty years to create the simplest, most powerful strategy for formulating and improving questions that can be taught and learned by anyone.

RQI’s Question Formulation Technique is a rigorous, step-by-step process for producing, improving and strategizing on how to use questions.

To Sell is Human by Daniel Pink“In the new world of sales, being able to ask the right questions is more valuable than producing the right answers…The Right Question Institute [has] come up with a method…to ask better questions.”

– Daniel Pink from To Sell is Human

A More Beautiful Question by Warren Berger“The Right Question Institute [is] a fascinating non-profit” that advances “the teaching of questioning skills.…Participants tend to become more engaged, more interested, in the subject at hand; the ideas begin to flow in the form of questions.”

– Warren Berger from A More Beautiful Question
