The Idea Behind VOMI Executive-In-Residence




This article is strictly designed for those of you who have already been introduced to VOMI Executive-In-Residence through our email invitation and website ::  https://vomiexecutiveinresidence.com :: and want to know THE IDEA behind the founding of this Executive-In-Residence program. 

Therefore, if you haven't yet been exposed to the information provided on the VOMI Executive-In-Residence website, then do so now before you continue reading this article.

 What Is an Executive-In -Residence? 

So, what is the idea behind the Executive-In-Residence and why should you join without a minute's delay?

To answer this question, let me begin with the name of the program itself:  VOMI Executive-In-Residence.    What exactly is an Executive-In-Residence?

The simple answer given on the Executive-In-Residence website is: 
...an exclusive and select number of distinguished corporate executives and future VOMI virtual organization leaders who have a deep interest in this world of virtual organizations that we are heading toward :: The New Virtual Organization World :: and want to know what it’s really like to be in the Virtual Organization Ring instead of just sitting on a fence or occupying a Virtual Organization Ringside Seat. 
Question Marks (????) Galore 

But here is the problem with this answer:  Unless you've been following Virtual Organization Management Institute very closely over the past 9 years; have thoroughly combed through our website and other affiliated  sites and have a clear understanding of our solutions, offerings and all our major initiatives;  and read just about every article and document published over the years,   then this simple answer will leave you just as clueless as you were before asking that question.

I can just imagine thousands of question marks (?????) going through your head,  buzzing through the air like a bunch of electrons colliding into each other,  trying to figure out what the hell I am talking about -  while, at the same time, thinking that, even without knowing the details, just being inside the Virtual Organization Ring and being actively involved in a virtual organization's activities would be welcome music to your ears and a tremendous opportunity.     

Time to Digress
 
To digress a bit, this reminds me of over 20 years ago, the time when I started a web design company and began talking to my prospective small and medium-size business clients about the "Internet" and building "websites" for them.   Their very first question "What is the Internet?" was immediately followed by "What's a website?"

Trying to answer both questions over the phone with someone who was clueless regarding what I was talking about turned out to be "the mother of all frustrations" for both me and the prospect,  and a complete exercise in futility.   This was the equivalent of a Greek trying to carry a conversation with a Chinese.   Or a quantum physicist trying to carry a conversation about quantum physics with a biologist.   These prospects weren't stupid.  It's just that we were communicating in different languages.

I was attempting to tell them in either 30 SECONDS over the phone,  or in a promotional one-page flyer,  or in a 30-minute meeting at their location  (while they are being constantly interrupted) about a "world that they had absolutely no knowledge of and an unbelievable amount of opportunities that this world was making available to them."   

(Nearly the same situation that we are in today with respect to the VOMI Executive-In-Residence program and The New Virtual Organization World.)

Being a small business, you could just imagine how much time we were spending on Internet Education versus Sales.   It was a valuable lesson for these prospective clients but a very costly lesson for us.  After educating them, they were now better equipped to deal with the next Web Design sales person to come knocking on their doors.

Back to the Idea Behind the VOMI Executive-In-Residence

Now back to VOMI Executive-In-Residence and the idea behind the program.

We do NOT want to repeat the costly experience we had over 20 years ago.   We are keenly aware of the situation you are in right now and fully understand the need to EDUCATE YOU as well as PROVIDE YOU WITH GUIDANCE on this world of opportunities that awaits you in the VOMI Executive-In-Residence program and the critical role you will play in The New Virtual Organization World.  (I purposely injected the curve ball phrase "The New Virtual Organization World" just to give you an idea that there is so much more to the program than meets the eye and that we have a whole, whole lot more to introduce and expose you to when you become a VOMI Executive-In-Residence.)

However, that being said, we've already learned our lessons years ago.   This Education and Guidance Cannot--and Will Not--Come to You Strictly at Our Expense.   Moreover, the cost of providing this education to you and your organization on a one-on-one basis would be very prohibitive for us and, therefore, strictly out of the question.   And due to the nature of our initiatives and breadth and scope of our mission, this EDUCATION and GUIDANCE  must be provided within a Collaborative and Collegial Environment.

As well, the program fee for admission into this Collaborative and Collegial Environment  must not only be reasonable but also be able to deter and weed out the "Typical Social Networkers,  Adventure Seekers, Lookie Loos, Time Wasters, Trolls,  Infiltrators, Detractors and Morons" who have plenty of time to kill and don't mind playing games or wasting other people's time.

But, most importantly,  we are only interested in providing this education and guidance to Decision-Maker Executives who are really serious about learning as much as possible about virtual organizations and The New Virtual Organization World opportunities during their stay in the program;  how they themselves fit into the overall scheme of things;  as well as how their organization stand to greatly benefit - and how to participate in that effort.  

Hence the reason for VOMI Executive-In-Residence and why we have in place a very transparent but strict application and admission process in order to determine whether or not both you and your organization meet our qualification (and expectation) requirements for admission.

If this article is your very first exposure to VOMI Executive-In-Residence, I invite you to go to the VOMI Executive-In-Residence website and submit your application

In Conclusion

I hope that this very informative and enlightening information has given you the ammunition you need in order to make the case to your colleagues and other powers-that-be throughout your organization - and within your greater Circle of Influence -  for the need to participate in and join you in the VOMI Executive-In-Residence program.   

As well, I invite you to share this article with all your followers, friends, colleagues and associates.  Some of them will surely thank you for it!
