Basic Facts You Need to Be Aware Of
FACT #1. What is The New Virtual Organization World?
So, here is an excellent metaphorical way to answer that question:
Imagine yourself being the parent of a little baby boy just born into the world we now live in. By the time, he is 2 years old and able to talk, he asks you "Dad, what is the world?"
And you stop right dead in your tracks trying to figure out the best way to answer that question to a 2-year old child with a limited vocabulary and understanding of anything that this world is about.
"When you join any Virtual Organization Consortium (or Consortia), you are automatically born into The New Virtual Organization World:: just like a baby boy or girl born into the world we now live in. It's a place where we all live. It's all around us wherever we are and wherever we go. And soon it will be like that for everybody else, regardless as to whether or not they want to :: it's not a matter of if but when."
And as you experience the complexities and nuances of life in The New Virtual Organization World and begin to mature, you'll realize that whatever we think that The New Virtual Organization World is, and whatever each and every single one of us makes of it, is really up to us and no one else.
No different than the way each and every single one of us has our very own perspective about the world that we now live in.And then you'll come to understand why there was no single answer or explanation to that question and WHY "being born into this new virtual organization world" is really all that matters:: and that sooner or later, given the passage of time, we will all eventually find out on our own (from a perception standpoint) what The New Virtual Organization World is really all about.
Just as when a baby who is still in their mother's womb can't begin to live and participate in this world, the same thing applies for all newcomers to The New Virtual Organization World. You can't remain stuck in the Womb of the Brick and Mortar World and, at the same time, expect to be able to participate in The New Virtual Organization World.
These are NOT specific VOMI projects that VOMI is looking for Lenders or Investors to fund. VOMI (not the consortium) may decide to participate in some projects either as a joint venture partner:: retained consultant:: or completely opt-out on certain projects.
The individual Consortium members are FREE to Team Up, Brainstorm, and Decide among themselves which Individual Projects they want to Participate in or Work on, Who they want to Collaborate and Partner with and under what terms, and can choose whatever investment or financing vehicle, or combination thereof, they deem appropriate to fund whatever project(s) they are interested in.
For Example, let's say that you propose building a very lucrative and profitable state-of-the-art spaceport for current rocket propulsion technology vehicles which will have an adverse impact on the local environment, the Consortium would not be able to give its stamp of approval nor allow its members to officially participate in such project since that would be inconsistent with the Blueprint of both the Consortium and My Vision of The New Virtual Organization World.
Then ask yourself this one question: With respect to the blueprint of this Consortium and the sort of projects to be undertaken worldwide, which companies in my existing portfolio of investments are best poised to offer the sort of products, services, innovation and technology to this Lucrative Global Market that is today completely under everybody's radar?
(No Competition! No Bidding Process! Projects that Are Waiting to Be Built Now by Your Colleagues in the Consortium!)
And, most importantly, Which of these Projects Would I want to FUND or Participate in as a Joint Venture Partner?
Therefore, even if you yourself are very busy and don't have the time to be involved in a Consortium on a personal, Hands-On basis in order to learn what The New Virtual Organization World is all about as well as all the related investment opportunities, you can always appoint a Permanent Representative or Anyone You Deem Fit to represent your Investment Group on the Consortium.
In other words, Don't Be an Idiot, DELEGATE! This person can be someone who works directly for your investment group or this person could be one of the principals or employees of one of the companies in your portfolio of investments.
Join a Consortium (appoint Anyone in your organization You Deem Fit to represent you) :: AND strongly urge ALL CEOs of your investment portfolio companies to also join a relevant Consortium and appoint whomever they deem fit to represent them. (I am not sure if you truly understand the brilliance and cascading effect of this strategy for all existing and future portfolio investments.)
Of course, the foregoing scenario is the fairy-tale version since competition is bound to prevent any single consortium member from having such total market dominance in The New Virtual Organization World. The reality is that any consortium member which is able to corner just 5% (five percent) of the market of The New Virtual Organization World will be extremely successful beyond their wildest dreams.
FACT #7. Invite Everyone Under the Sun to Apply to Join You on the Consortium
