TOEFL Essay Topic 91 - If you could ask a famous person one question, what would you ask? Why? Use specific reasons and details to support your answer.
It is tough decision to make if I could ask a famous person a question. Some people would choose the topic about themselves. However, I would like to pick general business question about business to the person who teach business for the following reasons.
First of all,there is a person who I would not absolutely choose anyone else. The person I like to ask how he thinks about my curiousness is professor Kristensen, who is an author of “ Dilemma of Innovation”. He wrote the book about why the many huge good companies fail to success to make innovation at the new field. He points out that the firms are too big to make decision speedy and easy to quit the new project which seems not to produce small profit comparing with the money that these companies make. And this new project can be the one provide new quality or value for the market. And the technology or business plan would be disruptive for the old market. Eventually, the technology would be main player for new market and earn much money. I found the study is quite impressive and interesting. Therefore I really want to discuss with him about his theory.
Secondly, it is interesting for the professor not to begin business based on his theory. So the question is about why he does not start his own business even though he knows how to success. In series of his books, he also mentions which kind of organization is appropriate for innovation. Also the personalities good for the project developing disruptive technology is stated in his papers. It is natural for the scholar to experiment his or her theory in actual society. I wonder why he does not challenge by running his own firm. There may be something he believes to be necessary to let innovation happen ,which he has not introduced yet. I can not stop wondering about this question. So this is another reason I would question him this matter.
Third, why I prefer to ask him this question rather than asking him how to success myself is I have many friends who love the Kristensen’s study. It will be good opportunity for us to talk about his answer. And it can lead new idea for business. We are not willing to be just a reader of Kristensen but also to be a good researcher for business.
These are the reasons why I choose the person and question if I have a luck to ask whoever I want.
