Try to anticipate all potential problems.
Within the organizing committee Bamba is entrusted with liaising information, which is one of the major keys to the success of the Games. Her mission is to establish preparedness strategies to ensure that all her operations staff can share information efficiently. These considerations range from whether or not to make public announcements when small children become separated from their parents, what to do if an athlete fails to arrive at the venue, or if the nearest means of transport stops running, right up to what to do if a terrorism threat is issued. If you attempted to count all the potential problems, there would easily be more than a thousand. To be certain about all operations, she implements training events according to these strategy guidelines and prepares for the actual event by correcting any aspects that are missing or have been overlooked. For the guidelines to function properly, it also falls to Bamba to seek an optimal way for ensuring her operations staff retain the necessary information.
She will need to rack her brains to determine the best methods and supplementary tools for her staff to liaise effectively. For example, if the person in charge of a specific assignment has to learn 100 guidelines, Bamba will need to decide what percentage how much of that should be relayed to their team or volunteer staff and how best to phrase things in order for staff to remember the necessary information. She says, “Honestly, I’m so nervous I have a stomachache. It’s never ending and there are no right answers. But the rewards outweigh the hardships. I love how challenging the job is because every time I clear a hurdle that stands in my way, I feel myself improving.”
