What does managing volunteers at a golf tournament have to do with managing our businesses? Blair Vandivier, president and CEO of Asterion, reflects on his recent experience as a committee chair of several hundred volunteers for the BMW Championship on his company blog HERE.

 

Wrote Vandivier: "This past September I was fortunate enough to chair a committee of several hundred volunteers for the BMW Championship held just after Labor Day at Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel, Indiana. The BMW is the third leg of the PGA Tour’s Fed Ex Cup, the Playoffs of the PGA Tour. This event is limited to the top 70 players who have qualified over the previous two tournaments of the Playoffs. The BMW Championship has no cut and the top 35 move on to the final event which determines the winner of the Fed Ex Cup and more than Ten Millions Dollars is held at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta. The BMW Championship was expected to attract more than two hundred thousand spectators over the 6 days of the event (two practice and four tournament days)."
