Why a Virtual Organization Advisors Consultation Is a Smart Investment and Far-Reaching Business Decision

 

The New Virtual Organization World

It's a New Principled and Civilized World, It's Virtual and It's Organized







How time flies!  

Back In 1993

Back in 1993, I recall calling on small to medium-size businesses to embrace the Internet and the World Wide Web for the simple reason that, whether they understood the reasons why and whether or not they wanted to, this was the direction that the world was heading - and it was not a matter of if, but when.   

Fast Forward to 2003

Fast forward to 2003, I embarked on a similar crusade, except that, this time around, I was primarily evangelizing on Virtual Organizations and the concept of Application Integration in a 100% Virtual Environment ::: what we commonly refer to today as Apps and the Cloud ::: using existing pioneering technologies which were pretty much unknown, disregarded or overlooked by 99% of Industry and Government Agency CIOs in the US and across the globe.

Many of the pioneers of these technologies I had recruited and brought on board  - with prior experience working for certain US government agencies (which I am unable to elaborate on) and who had some of the highest top secret level clearances -  then told me that what I was proposing was, in fact, doable, however, they seriously doubted that Decision-Makers at the Highest Levels of  Industry, Academia, Government, and other Institutions  would have a clue as to what the hell our organization is making available and offering to them and what the hell I am talking about   
For the simple reason that they themselves ::: the pioneers of these technologies ::: never really thought that the broader private industry and general public would be interested in the adoption and application of such technologies in the way that I envisaged and foresaw it.      
The Number One Problem, Obstacle and Challenge they thought impossible for Our Organization to overcome were the Visionary Aspect and Sophistication of the Technology; the pervasive Silo Mentality and Silos of Interest Mindset in all sectors of industry and government; and the standard Brick and Mortar Level Security Model.

For Example, one of my colleagues on our Executive Leadership Team even asked me, three (3) months after joining the team, "Pierre, what exactly is it that we are offering to our prospective clients and What Is Our Value Proposition?"   (Needless to say, I was shocked as hell to hear that coming from a member of the executive leadership team at this stage of the game.)   

After stating to him that he was the person best positioned to answer that question since he is one of the pioneers of the technology we were offering, he then stated to me in a derisive fashion "Oh, there you go again, that sexy technology stuff." 

He then stated to me, and I paraphrase, "Pierre, I don't think you understand what I am trying to tell you.  I know these guys and I understand their mindset and capabilities.  I've worked with them at the highest levels of business and government during my entire professional career.  Frankly, they are NOT as smart as you think they are and being a visionary is not their strong suit.  What you are proposing is way beyond their level of intelligence and pay grade.   Initially, before I accepted your offer, even I had some trouble understanding what you were proposing and how you are going to be able to pull this off."         

In other words, he could not imagine this technology being used in the way I then envisioned it ::: the way that it is being used today:   Apps,  A Virtual Environment (the Cloud),  Virtualization of the Workspace and  Workforce (Virtual Workspace Tools and Remote Workers).  And he was doubtful that these corporate executives and government bureaucrats would embrace it in droves for the simple reason that nobody wants to stick their neck out and embrace something that hasn't yet been prototyped, tested, proven, approved, and matured in the marketplace (i.e., adopted by the mainstream).    
Let alone the Virtual Organizations and Virtual Organization Leadership Force aspect of it:  The corollary to a World of Virtual Organizations, Principled Leadership, Principled Geopolitical Leadership, a New Global Civilization Based On a Civilized World Financial System, Political Evolution,  Mankind Making the Transition from Human Being to Intelligent Being,  and Mankind Charting a Path Toward Human Evolution - all of which are light years ahead of today's thinking about Organizations, Virtual Organizations, Virtual Organization Infrastructure, Virtual Workspace Tools and Remote Working.    
Regrettably, it saddens me to say, as it stands today, that given today's technologies and the current tools we all have available at our disposal, in comparison to where the entire human race should be at this point in time, We Are All Now Living in the Stone Age.         
And as much as I hate to admit it, he was right.  What a shame!  It took a total of 17 years and a so-called Global Pandemic for all these so-called Visionary Executives in Business, Academia, Public Policy, and Government in every single corner of the globe just to learn how to utilize some of these Virtual Workspace Tools (Zoom, etc.) and Work Remotely.  
And, to this very day, hour, minute and second, as you are reading this, many of them refuse to turn on their camera during a videoconference.   Over the last 17 years, I have had to insist that the camera be turned on during a videoconference prior to proceeding.  And upon doing so, they look like a deer in headlights.    

Hence the reason why I had to proceed with my vision of this World of Virtual Organizations and not have to wait 17 years for these "I'll let you fill in the blank" to come around and understand what I have been evangelizing on over the past 25 years.    

Thus, a perfect opportunity for me to segue way into the main topic of this document.

In Conclusion

In the absence of this document,
what are the odds that you knew or had some sort of inkling that the World of Virtual Organizations was so expansive in nature; had so many synaptic and dendritic connections encompassing just about every single aspect of human existence; and could or would have such a great impact on the future of mankind? 
Obviously, this is a rhetorical question, thus no need for you to try to come up with an answer.   
The point being, there is no One-Size-Fits-All solution or response to any questions that you may have regarding virtual organizations and how your organization fits into the grand scheme of things.

Sometimes, the best question or the best answer is the simplest of them all. 

For Example, 

Example #1

Let's say that this article has opened up your eyes a bit on this World of Virtual Organizations and you are not quite sure as to how virtual organizations can play a role in helping you to address any existing challenges that your organization is facing, your question could be as simple as this:
"Pierre, it's obvious that every single organization in the world has some sort of vexing issues or challenges that they have to deal with.  Having read this article, you have somewhat broadened my horizon a bit in terms of possible solutions.  How should I proceed?"

My answer could be as simple as this:

"Thank you, Ami, for your inquiry.   Go to Virtual Organization Advisors in order to review detailed information on what we are offering and simple instructions on how to proceed in a seamless and very transparent fashion.  Have an awesome day!"

Example #2

Let's say that you are now working on some really innovative, groundbreaking, very sensitive and beyond top secret projects.  You came across this article by accident or just sheer providence which got the wheels in your mind spinning rapidly in all directions.  You're now wondering how this World of Virtual Organizations can complement or add value to what you are now working on.  Your question could be as simple as this:       

"Pierre, it's now my turn to flip the script on you since you are so fond of saying that you are working on things that are light-years ahead of today's mainstream.  We are now working on things that you cannot even begin to imagine or understand and that I am now unable to disclose or discuss with you.  However, that being said, your article leads me to believe that there is a possibility that certain aspects of this World of Virtual Organizations that you speak of could add value to what we are now working on.  How should I proceed?"

 My answer could be as simple as this:

"Thank you, Robert, for your inquiry.   I accept with deep humility your flipping the script on me and, in fact, I welcome your challenge.   Go to Virtual Organization Advisors in order to review detailed instructions on how to proceed in a seamless and very transparent fashion.  I look forward to talking with you soon."
