Creating a Lifetime

wiz1Creating a lifetime

Personal and professional plans require a lot of investigation, inner and outer, in order to craft them with some order. They can be small or large, depending on the person’s ability to create a vision for their life and/or work. Sometimes the two become one through creating deliberately. I’ve admittedly had a very large vision. I’m sure some might even believe it to be a bit incredulous.

I founded a company back in January of 1988 to encourage growth and maturation of business and spiritual principles into something beyond both. I hoped that someday Be The Dream would be synonymous with the ability to put people, places and things together with a capacity to change the world, facilitating harmony among people and planet as a result. I wrote the following for a class in my degree program at the University of Phoenix. Yes, I AM a PHOENIX!

Personal Leadership Development Plan

A visionary creates paradigm shifts in organizations as a change agent. Creating an organization and a plan to address systemic problems in how disenfranchised adults and youth are treated is a great challenge. Charismatic and transformative leadership styles empower a visionary to paint the picture that allows others to see the vision, embrace the mission, and achieve the goal. The environment of change affects the youth and the adults transform as a natural part of the process. Spectrum Academy is a practical beginning in creating a model community designed to engage mind, body, and spirit in a demonstration of holistic education; learning how to work together in new ways. These new ways include the development of sustainable living and working environments that produce future thinking individuals who contribute to the paradigm shift from competitive patterns to collaborative processes, which results in the demonstration of a better living awareness.

Brief Narrative & Overview of Plan

The condensed version of the Plan includes several areas of focus. Personal leadership development continues through a doctoral program, receiving funding for Spectrum Academy, building an empowered ‘Dream Team’ for Spectrum Academy and Genesis II, and webmeistery for the continued development of the Be The Dream web presence. Notoriety within the fields of education, youth treatment programs, and community development comes through persistent determination in delivery of results and networking throughout the spectrum of organizations that concern themselves with empowering youth and developing future sustainable communities.

Initial Do Diligence

Do diligence to date includes acquiring a Master of Business Administration focusing on business development and project management, secondary teaching certification through the University of Phoenix, and now completion of a Master of Arts in Organizational Management. Articles of Incorporation for Be The Dream, as a 501 (c) (3) corporation, are written and ready to submit. The intention is to use the organization to develop and implement strategies for paradigm shifts in the application of ecological, psycho-spiritual, and scientific technology through development of model communities that reflect the practice. Spectrum Academy’s business plan, as the initial project, needs final edit and revision using feedback from multiple sources.

Using the collective expertise and knowledge base of the partnership, marketing project and organizational consulting services fulfill the need to share and the passion felt toward personal involvement in the process of education and nurturing others. Contract work for various municipalities topcollegepapers.net, directly and through subcontracts, is sought currently. Further do diligence includes continued research and development of leadership qualities and an information data base of pertinent people and processes in the various industries associated with the target market. Organizing and obtaining a doctoral candidacy that develops the strategic and structural objectives of Spectrum Academy and the Genesis II communities, also on the agenda, begins after completion of the MAOM.

Web Presence and Presentation

Facilitation of this creation requires a state-of-the-art presentation package that features elements to address an array of audience preferences. A PowerPoint presentation, developed during the MAOM program, needs completion and test marketing, final edit and publishing as the next benchmark for Spectrum and Genesis II.

Website development helps the global recognition of leadership in collaborative alliance development. A monthly Be The Dream Newsletter, with approximately 300 readers, began in November, 2002. As a self-taught webmeister, continual website development fine tunes the message and resources available via the Web, utilizing a global audience. The month of September, 2003 marked the 2,000 visitor per month level, with roughly 12% return visitors. Just under 75% of the new visitors stay less than a minute.

The target market generally remains from 5 to over an hour, 6% of the visitors stay 5-15 minutes, 11% 2-5 minutes, and 3% longer than 15. The goal is to reach a 15% 5-15 minute stay, and/or increase visitors to 5,000 per month in the next 12 months. This is achieved through developing reciprocal link partners, search engine keyword marketing, submission to website search engine databases, and personal contacts through networking efforts.

Already a leader in some circles, it is important to establish credibility throughout the globe via the Internet, organizational, and personal references. Invitations exist to several gatherings and symposiums around the globe. Sponsorships are necessary to meet the financial requirements of travel and accommodations for these events. Proposals in development are marketed to specific organizations and philanthropists to acquire the necessary funding for two, as my partner, Robin Engel, is the official button pusher and co-presenter of the plan. Continual negotiations and resolutions are necessary in partnership, which is why the union of lifestyle and living empowers the personal and professional development required to be successful in this venture of vision, mission, insight, and magic.

Non-Profit Organization

Be The Dream, a soon to be 501 (c) (3) non profit corporation, serves as the foundation and organizational leadership for the development and expansion of Spectrum Academy and the Genesis II communities. Register initially in January, 1988, Be The Dream began as a small consultancy for ‘new age’ and metaphysically or spiritually oriented businesses and organizations. Adjusting to the growing needs of community development, addressing the disenfranchised youth first, is a natural evolution of the integrity, concern for accountability and responsibility, and proactive energy that drives the new living awareness of Culture Creatives and concerned planetary citizens. Making this process practical and pragmatic is a core competency of Be The Dream and its charismatic and transformational leadership team.

The launch of Be The Dream as a non-profit makes a larger scope of funding resources available to access. Grant writing skills, currently developing, forces the focus toward the simple and practical communication of vision, mission, and organizational plan for accomplishment. Further refining research into a well-crafted plan includes specific communication plans, financial projections and requirements, organizational goals, project plans, process and procedures to achieve the mission of the vision conceived by the Co-Directors of Be The Dream. Applying the skills set acquired to date is most challenging and exciting for the partnership, individually and collectively.

For Profit Directions

Part of the missing pieces of a better picture includes the bridging of non-profit and for profit worlds. Spectrum Academy, sponsored by the non-profit Be The Dream, includes three business units, a charter school, residential treatment center, and community technology center. Intrinsic to the nature of education and treatment, the non-profit status is important. These institutions do not produce revenue; they prepare the way for productive citizenry. The CTC, however, is expanded to include a data center for collection, storage, and distribution of various educational software packages normally overwhelming the cost of education in charter schools, community colleges, and correctional institutions.

Acquiring authorized site licensing from software authors and development companies greatly reduces the costs to the Association of Charter Schools, in Arizona and across the U.S., through the intranet access capacity. The win/win is created with the producers/manufacturers of the products through a percentage of revenue being shared with each, increasing their potential customer base as well. The projected revenues from this venture support the charter school and residential treatment program.

Meeting the above demands requires continual professional development and understanding in information technology systems, resource integration methodologies, and mastery of business administration and organizational development skills. Educationally, the MBA and MAOM degrees help integrate experiential and theoretical models. The background and education to date empowers exploring new territory in the functional development of youth and adult relationships, academic and treatment programs, and business unit creation for community advancement. Further use of systems-thinking, learning organization, and supply chain management theories help to create a deeper sense of solidity as the organization develops. This opportunity presents a variety of virtuous endeavors that will attract many and require the best of management practices to be used by the leadership.

Industry Notoriety

Increasing notoriety establishes a greater ability to connect the dots of collaborative alliances throughout the immediate area, in regard to Spectrum Academy, and globally in regard to the evolution of Genesis II. Published authors/academians seem to garner the most attention through industry symposiums, etc. Establishment in any arena generally requires a Ph.D. level academic tenure as well as 15 to 20 years in the field. The time in the field prepares the way for practical dissertations, problem-solving, and rooting oneself in the industry, or industries as the case may be. In this new millennium, there are seeming voluminous requirements to meet.

To begin the doctoral program search is the next professional development step. There are several options to this journey. The best for this writer includes the ability to design a program that fits the high-level organizational view while crafting the front-line approach to actualizing the vision of Be The Dream, Spectrum Academy, and Genesis II. Integrating education, community development, treatment systems, and leadership philosophies into a single program is a must. Writing this process is a monumental task and worthy of the doctoral plunge. The Web presence being developed benefits this process as well, with some invitations to speak at various events already received via this medium. The goal is to complete the doctoral program in 3 years, while traveling to speak at these various events to continue the networking of our plan and its benefits to society.

Conclusion

Setting realistic goals and objectives has been difficult to achieve since the first inclination of life purpose came as a teenager. As profound as the experience was, the practical path still had to be achieved in order to make [it] real. Nearly 30 years later, the dream is still alive and well in process toward manifestation in some very real ways. A natural charismatic and transformational leadership style embraces the changes people make while searching for their own anchor in this world. This is also a natural part of the process the writer has engaged in his flair for change agentry, creating a personal and professional plan to pummel the paradigm paralysis regarding disenfranchised youth and adults. Our world is on the brink of massive change and this one has a passion for being on the front line. The challenge is to always be vigilant of the vividness that can be created through communication and openness of purpose, which shows up as the vision and mission of the organizational development for Be The Dream, Spectrum Academy, and Genesis II.

Update

After nearly a decade and a half, many things have changed and transformed, but the basic plan is still under way. Since that time, I’ve had the opportunity and accepted the challenge of compiling and presenting several other avenues for expanding and supporting the original plan for creating a movement toward harmony among people and planet through becoming a possibilities coagulator, putting people, places and things together both in reality and virtually, providing some foundation and models for future developments. The following chart illustrations the activity in rough form.

Now that Social Media has entered the fray, the opportunities and perturbations continue to manifest nearly beyond my ability to keep up with them. The new methods for communicating across the world and into individual environments are daunting as well as magnificent. I only hope that some assemblage of folks begins to take place soon or I’m really going to have to learn how to clone myself or go on a couple hours sleep a night.

New Era

Bernie-middle classEntering a New Era

We hear of a new age of enlightenment, a new era of environmental and social responsibility. How is it happening? It certainly appears that the folks who should be leading the way are not. But why?

We could point fingers at many who don’t want to play nice and practice the ‘golden rule’ as this nation supposedly was established to do. Would that solve the problems? It sure would make us feel better, venting our rage at those who we put in office to do the right thing… right? I think we have a failure to communicate what that really is now.

So, what are the possibilities the folks like Bernie Sanders are introducing for the innumerable time? We’ve heard the same rhetoric for decades. That’s not to say what those folks are presenting isn’t necessary. We’ve just heard it all before and nothing has been done. Our economy tanked a few short years ago, again, and big business seems to be running the show even more now.

Okay, just a bit of finger pointing to make sense common as an example. Companies like Monsanto (easy pick because they are front and center) are being banned in other countries because of their practices, yet still report record profits that the pay very little tax, if any, on here at home. They even have temporary immunity from any backlash from their GMO (genetically modified organism) or GE (genetically engineered) products.

People, places and things are shuffled around with light speed, or so we think, in order to fend off or prepare for the restoration of America. There seems to be almost a moss panic swirling in the undercurrent of the political machine, especially with the next election coming up and candidates preparing to launch campaigns. Clean elections are a misnomer as he/she with the most backing and air time most often wins. Obama seemed to have a good attitude and message going in, transparency, and it sure has brought things to light. However, his tenure as Chief may not have had the hopeful results.

The reality is most of us have no idea what it is like to function at that level, nor do we really want to, yet we sure can abstain or complain when things don’t go how we think they should. What can we do about that? Well, we can get involved. Most folks avoid politics because it’s been labeled a ‘dirty business’ in the hearts of most Americans. We can extrapolate that from the lack of participation and the comments around the water cooler. Can we change that attitude? Perhaps, but is going to take a massive metanoia – change of mind.

We can start by just simply doing the right things locally, getting involved with the communities in which we live. Sure, it will take time away from some of the things we  currently do… or maybe it might just give Socratesus something to do instead of ‘chillin’ out’ after work or getting mesmerized by the newest video games or reality TV shows. Oh, I understand we work hard and deserve to have our free time. Where has that gotten us? That’s a lot of ego, eh? Why not turn ego to wego… together we can facilitate the change we desire. Like Gandhi said, ‘Be the change you wish to see in the world.’

Now, I’m not professing we get all religious or spiritual. That hasn’t really worked either now, has it? What I am suggesting is the we consider stepping out of the house and getting to know what is going on in the neighborhood. Is it a beautiful day in the neighborhood? If it isn’t, then what do you see can be done to make it so? Perhaps that is a good place for you to start. What you see needs to be done might be the perfect thing for you to do. Maybe others see the same thing and the agreement you’ve reached, of _____ needing to be done and you’ve decided to do something about it, is what will inspire others to get involved.

We can start small, with what is right in front of our faces. A small group of people with a common agenda, goals and objectives can get things done in magnificent and often larger than life ways. What have you got to lose? Oh, I know…. We’ve got liabilities, limitations and excuses to lose. That’s what happens to challenge when it becomes change.

Rolling Out Change

angeltrumpets2Rolling Out Change

In contemplating the roll out of a change in the organizational structure of a country there are some very simple, albeit challenging, processes involved. Traditionally movements stem from an individual or small collective of dedicated individuals. Today, many are capable and willing to initiate change themselves. Across the country, small groups of people are gathering to share their skillsets as they collaborate toward building better communities and eventually a nation, perhaps even a world.

As a strategist with a background in project and organizational management, I’ve had a passion and penchant for putting people, places and things together to do some pretty cool stuff. I’ve had some success in a variety of industries: aerospace; building, road and bridge construction; education; entertainment; special events and more. I’ve found happy people with the right tools and training get more done with less supervision.

I’m going to dive in to talking about the nuts and bolts of progressive change management. From an organizational standpoint, it takes clusters or groups of dedicated individuals strewn across the country with a focus on collaborative processes and results. Those clusters or nodes are connected through a network, whether intranet or internet, and able to access profiles, portfolios and projects that combine co-working, complementary skillsets and even incubator-type environments. I created a co-working and incubator space rationale with statistics for a municipality and you can find it here.

As diverse as the playing field may be, like the 12-sector co-creation wheel used by the Humanity’s Team and Thrive organizations, the capacity for organizing local groups rests in the self-initiated, those who are driven to find, facilitate and support practical mysticism in their local communities. I say ‘practical mysticism’ because the process embraces awareness, conscious behaviors within community action. The experience is sometimes akin to the ‘Law of Attraction’ on steroids as people, places and things seem to magically appear to those who are actively and selflessly serving the cause.

To date there have been numerous online and on-ground communities that have been attempting to gather like-minded folks together, but the obvious self-centered activity seems to be driving the bus. The notion of leadership seems to be stuck in last century ideas of competition, control and submission. Heretics are still not tolerated when the status quo needs the bar raised or their heart-drives upgraded. Every question needs to be better than the last and they all have answers that guide progress, some of them ripping apart the operating system in place.

I coined a term over a decade ago that seemed perfect in relationship to describing the ultimate structure of project management: jobarchy – the job is the boss and everyone wins. Personal andchange management hidden agendas have no place in the process and impede progress. There is no Ego without WEgo in such instances as the progress occurs at the speed of surrender to it. The synergy of best practices across multiple platforms is facilitated by leaders who practice this understanding, ultimately being able to combine authority and conviction that guides by example.

Result in Action

What we are ultimately seeking to do is facilitate a change in the power structure of our country, putting the people back in the picture instead of the corporatocracy and profit-driven agendas. How we do that is up to each one of us and our willingness to step up to the challenge. Fearlessness in the face of challenge is a key factor; not that we ignore the potential risks, but we develop plans and strategies that eliminate the potential risk by making them so profoundly logical that the sense made common naturally removes all concerns. That takes a lot of preparation, applying knowledge and understanding of the hard and soft skills of organizational management.

On a practical political no-nonsense level, the results are driven by developing support for those who (by their demonstration) have proven moral and ethical behavior beyond question in their communities. These proven vetted leaders, provided they are willing, are perfect to place in political positions in order to guide their communities and engage their constituents in making better decisions. Cash is no longer king… data is divine. Research and technology are key components of creating consistent and clear communication that can be shared across intelligence levels… making sense even more common.

Now we’re faced with creating the impetus for people to get involved; get out of their homes and join in the process. Festivals have long been a community favorite and draw folks out for the opportunity for fun and enjoyment of a variety of activities, education and entertainment… edutainment if you will. Festivals of all kinds have been a part of our lives for as long as I can remember. Well-crafted and strategically planned events can and do provide opportunities for the collection of data and interested individuals for further engagement.

Whether or not the strategy for change is implemented on a large scale remains to be seen. For now, just the explanation of it seeds the thoughtmosphere for those who might feel attracted to such a purpose. I’m well aware that some concepts and possibilities are ahead of their time, yet over time they find their way into the world and become amazingly effective. Perhaps this can be so for our country and world eventually. Sense made common includes the move toward harmony among people and planet.

Industry Comparison

wiz1Industry Comparison

E-business has become a burgeoning field of interaction. Technology breakthroughs have enabled a virtual global market where nearly anyone can offer their wares to an ever-expanding market. Covered within the text are various business models that exist today. They include: Brokerage Model; Advertising Model; Infomediary Model; Merchant Model Virtual; Manufacturer Model; Affiliate Model; Community Model; Subscription Model; and the Utility Model. For the purpose of this paper a hybrid model will be the focus of discussion, delving into the realms of evolving educational delivery systems made possible through e-business.

Community Technology Centers

A Community Technology Center (CTC) is where people get free or low-cost access to computers and computer-related technology, such as the Internet, together with learning opportunities that encourage exploration and discovery. CTCs also provide low-income areas with job-development opportunities, access to social service information, community outreach programs, and the ability to create collaborative alliances with public and private organizations as well as other community members.

Current management philosophy calls for empowering organized skills sets toward completion of goals and objectives. The ‘No Child Left Behind’ scenario invites the community to reclaim their youth through a reformation of social consciousness. Collaborative alliances share responsibility and capitalize on effective use of time, materials, and resources in meeting collective goals. Partnerships create shared ownership of vision and distribute responsibility of task completion in the achievement of the mission, utilizing both click and brick assets. Socially responsible action in creating low-cost solutions for educational content and delivery to the end user creates community utility. Strategic use of performance measurement improves key areas of management concerns, such as resource allocation, organizational learning, internal processes, and external accountability. Sharing resources empowers synergistic capacity building of each participant and strengthens overall performance.

Web-based Delivery Systems

The area of click vs. brick creates utility through the effective use of communication networks and the availability of curriculum bundles for youth and adult learners. Bundles contain a group of programs selected to cover a wide variety of teaching activities proven effective in increasing students’ skills. Stand-alone modules cover specific academic or work-related subject areas that compliment individualized student curriculum. Professional services utilize proven expertise in virtually all areas of educational administration including curriculum design and implementation, grant writing, resource development, and technology. Training and development programs tailored to meet organizational needs are offered through on-site or distance learning delivery methods. Individual programs for professional career enhancement, deliverable to the desktop, provide continuing education requirements and opportunities for community-based leadership development strategies.

Collaborative Alliances

A data center acquired for multiple-uses has many potential benefits, especially in the growing area of charter schools. Low-cost space for server equipment, with 24/7 support, maximizes data delivery and storage costs while protecting investments. ASP is a unified web development platform providing necessary services for data-on-demand applications such as distance learning programs or on-line testing. Increased bandwidth capacity through the data center means better delivery/response time for the end user, which reduces frustration and increases productivity. Charter schools benefit from cost-saving e-mail and web hosting, curriculum delivery and storage, professional services, and technical support. Small businesses, potentially developed by students and/or staff need similar services to manage costs and maintain effective delivery of products and services.

Capacity Building

Capacity building engages public and private entities toward collaborative partnerships to deliver products and services to specific populations. The data center needs to be equipped with cabling and space for server racks, T-1 lines and/or DS3 fiber optic cables with auxiliary power supply to ensure reliable service. Centralized technology service and storage invites industry partnerships to further develop state-of-the-art delivery systems, classroom integration and participation, and e-deliverable products and services to the public, such as for home schooling families. Capacity building of professional resources and services empowers greater efficiency of human resources and increased effectiveness of human action. Educational resources become more affordable to individual sites through collective acquisition and bargaining power. Turn-key educational capacity and business services offer a window of opportunity to would-be entrepreneurs concerned about the future of education and business practices.

Future Development

Collective purchased curriculum packages (bundled or stand-alone) will offer educational programs at greatly reduced costs, increasing access to low-income areas. Increases opportunity for teacher-developed curricula to be made available to large numbers and remunerate the creator in the process. Housing or linking (from main page) a selection of distance learning programs increases exposure and income for educational institutions and development companies offering programs. Community Technology Centers, developed as partnerships with schools, provide additional capacity for adult education programs for acquiring a GED or college credits toward degree programs. Community-based educational programs empower community leaders and members to effectively develop and manage community affairs. Access to social services electronic programs increases quality of life for low-income community members.

CTC Opportunities

Charter schools that choose to work together can reduce curriculum expenses while increasing teacher effectiveness, which means more time with the students and easier lesson planning.  Web hosting services, along with e-mail, provide schools greater exposure with less cost. Internet content filters installed on-site keeps clean content delivery for students and teachers. Non-Profit Organizations benefit through reduced costs, greater accessibility of Internet or Web-related services, while building capacity in the development of the network of organizations and service to the community. Service Organizations can offer assistance, information, and programs while establishing growth in their community network. Discussions, forums, web-based workshops, are made available with ease of data management.

Collaborative alliances and partnerships provide greater ease of focused funding while building capacity throughout the Network of Providers/Users. Groups, both youth and adult, can access ‘clean’ information, communicate with other groups, and provide members with selected products and services specific to their areas of focus. The CTC data center allows organized curriculum delivery through e-business technology while minimizing costs for upgrades of software and hardware. Parents who choose to homeschool their children can have up-to-date State Standard-based curriculum delivered to their home computer at affordable costs. Parents can also refresh themselves on educational processes to help facilitate their student’s learning. Meanwhile, charter schools can also utilize the cost-effectiveness of group purchasing of materials through the CTC’s variety of resources made possible by the collaborative alliances.

Conclusion

Cooperation creates open environments for growth and success through inclusion of the best of each organization’s expertise. This type of e-business allows competitive activity, which has lead to conflict and exclusivity of information, to engage more fully in the market through shared technologies. Collaborative Alliances are the way of future, applying best practices in current management philosophy, which empowers organizations to build capacity through shared resources. Sustainable growth comes from community involvement that is facilitated through the inclusion practices of the organization; developing a community capable of raising the new genre of children through a systems approach to learning. A new paradigm of leadership, based on socially and environmentally responsible action, provides a balance between libertarian and utilitarian methods of personal involvement. The greater good is served through the empowerment of individual skills sets necessary for the program to function. Group(s) alignment with a collective mission allows each individual to serve as an integral part of the whole, empowering participation and results. The synergy of this hybrid model can effectively bridge the click and mortar worlds of business with the growing community educational needs for both youth and adult learners.

E-Curriculum Technology

solutionE-Curriculum Technology

The delivery of curriculum through electronic means is a growing trend in America. Using a Community Technology Center (CTC) to compile and deliver e-curriculum serves not only the community of residence; it also allows businesses, home-schoolers, and public and private schools across the nation low cost access to state-of-the-art curriculum. This paper will examine internal and external elements of procurement, supply chain management, and distribution as applied to the development of this project.

Procurement

“Electronic commerce decreases the cost of creating, processing, distributing, storing, and retrieving paper-based information. For example, by introducing an electronic procurement system, companies can cut purchasing administrative costs by as much as 85 percent.” Pg. 62 Several methods are used for electronic procurement of e-curriculum. Cyber savvy teachers with a passion for sharing regularly post their achievements to electronic repositories. Traditional textbook manufacturers are developing their own brand of e-curriculum. Bundled thematic units are being created by teacher collaboratives, electronic curriculum developers, and even companies that are aligning practical academic knowledge bases with real-world applications.

An active procurement process involves setting up extranets with the variety of suppliers as well as curriculum analysts. Procurement also involves leveraging existing systems, resources, and repositories as functional pieces for intranet and extranet purposes, with ultimate application across the Internet and World Wide Web. Using intelligent agents, the results of searches for state-of-the-art curriculum can also categorize and identify preferred curriculum bundles and/or subjects. This feature should increase utility for customer relationship management as well in fulfilling specific requests. In the case of specific curriculum developers, the agents can identify and compare relative factors within examinable parameters on supplier websites and return ranked scores for internal analysts. Intelligent agents can also be used to seek out teacher-made curriculum, contacting potential candidates, and notifying internal resource developers for follow up on potential suppliers. Collaborative alliances will develop as the project evolves because of the nature of educators’ willingness to support a collective approach to solving many of the problems with traditional curriculum delivery.

Supply Chain Management

“A more recent trend, however—direct-to-consumer selling—is driving an even larger logistics shift in the U.S., according to Ron Riggin, vice president and general manager of MARC Global Systems. MARC is a global supply chain execution (SCE) systems provider for tier-one and -two customers at hundreds of sites worldwide. The latest 3PL trend is application hosting, a.k.a. ASP. ASPs disseminate logistics applications over private networks or the Internet from a location other than the customer’s. “The world is moving back to data centers, like 20 years ago when IT occupied the IBM universe,” said Mr. Riggin. “Especially in the last year to 18 months, IT architecture has been moving to the ASP model via intranets. Now, with Web technology, ASPs and 3PLs can deliver software on demand to end users in real time. You get local processing ability but central management.” (Navas, 2003)

Designing the CTC with data center capacity increases electronic disintermediation in the B2C supply chain. Storage of electronic curriculum on local servers increases uptime and deliverability to local clients via intranets and distance clients via extranets and the Internet. Once the hardware infrastructure is in place, intelligent agents will again deliver accessible product for perusal, acceptance or rejection, and categorization for inclusion in the e-catalog of available material or queued for additional screening. Licensing and User Agreements will promote low-cost accessibility for low-income communities, un- or under-employed professionals and small businesses. Through collaborative alliances and consumer survey development, suppliers can further refine products for specific clients and extend their product development potential.

Distribution

Clients will include on-site users at the CTC, home-schoolers, life-long learners, small businesses, and charter, district and private schools. The distribution model includes our ultimate consumer satisfaction, supply chain management, and relationship building marketing model to ensure future growth and sustained use. Although the direct link between producer (in the case of teachers) and consumer may not be possible, the capacity to collect and store data, concerning curriculum, allows an ever-greater market for the individual or collaborative teacher teams.

The CTC infrastructure increases the capability to deliver the e-curriculum through the internal LAN and across intranets, extranets, and the Internet. Special intelligent agents are again involved to monitor access and means of distribution in order to increase customer satisfaction, monitor internal processes within the software systems, and continue quality delivery to end users. In-house servers with DS3 lines ensure enough bandwidth availability during peak accessing times so that the real-time delivery is not interrupted.

It is also conceivable that collaborative alliances will develop as distribution channels grow. Many charter schools are hampered by the high cost of e-curriculum packages that are poorly serviced once they are delivered and installed. Third-party distribution channels will develop through the relationships that are built with schools and small businesses, expanding the delivery capacity of e-curriculum. Using the intranet server within the CTC as an application warehouse helps to reduce maintenance and support problems.

Enigmatic Ethical Dilemmas

SignEnigmatic Ethical Dilemmas

Enigmatic ethical dilemmas are prevalent in today’s world. Our society faces such perverted business practices, i.e. the push for the pipeline, in a surrealistic daily life. Yet, it is up to each individual to recognize his or her own accountability and act responsibly. Relationships, personal and professional, engage prioritized needs in the quest for balance and appropriate service to family, friends and profession.

Family presents a plethora of enigmatic dilemmas on all levels of intimate vulnerability. Friends, especially close ones, transcend boundaries of vulnerability to truly demonstrate their willingness to address concerns. Professional environments require a certain reticence toward the vestibule of vulnerability. Facilitating positive outcomes often requires one to be instantly critically self-reflective toward self and others in order to empower harmony in the world around them.

Family order, in its purest sense, relies on the familial sense of community within the core of the emotions that provide the foundation for action, engagement or response with the world. As a teen, we engage life in a more irresponsible manner as we search for identity and purpose. Our behaviors as teens and young adults do not always reflect the same desires for our children as they reach these critical periods of their maturation process.

Observing certain behaviors or habits in teens is not too difficult, especially having been down many of the same paths. That does not always make them pleasant. As a parent, we face a new level of responsibility for our beloved babies, yet nurturing their growth is often a moment-to-moment action driven by a desire for complete honesty. Truth does not always mean full disclosure. My father said those words to me as a teenager. It took me years to realize the depth of their meaning, let alone apply them with my children.

Teens nearing the point of being on their own develop certain attitudes as part of their process, to greater or lesser degrees, depending on their past environments. As flexible and malleable as children are to their own desires, they lack critical reflection of their action’s affects on their environment, specifically the ‘harmony’ of the house. Emotional stability, i.e. the single parent’s self image, is important to the well being of the house.

The enigmatic ethical dilemma here: How do you affect change with the least chaos and still require integrity and respect toward others in the teenage behaviors?

In the quest for successful outcomes, critical conversation between parenting parties is most important. Obvious as it may be, even adults often have considerable problems when critically reflecting on their child rearing skills. Vulnerability transcends timidity as a unified front evolves through this discovery process. It is the discovery in the sense that we, parenting partners, are establishing what we consider to be agreeable levels of acceptable accountability.

How does one inquire of what another feels acceptable without creating defensiveness or self-judgment of parenting progress to date? Interpersonal skills undoubtedly come into play, yet critical reflection of assumptions regarding discovery of another’s value system may not always produce pleasant results.

Friends, on the other hand are usually less intimate in their levels of expressed vulnerability. The best friends are those who risk their friendships to be direct and honest in respect of their friendship. Longevity of relationship often allows greater levels of vulnerability and depth of conversation. Shared activities in specific areas of passion, such as playing music, increases the opportunities for in-depth conversation and discovery of deeper connections to each other and to life.

Some types of music require a much greater sense of openness due to the nature and style of music and the need for ‘feeling’ each other’s groove, so to speak. Great improvisational artists are often deep thinkers and tend to relate to their environment more from a feeling level; a ‘gut’ instinct response as opposed to calculated reasoning.

Being able to honestly believe that I had no cause for alarm, the enigmatic ethical dilemma was in how to deal with obvious problems. Whether the problem was a lack of attentiveness or dishonesty and thievery only exacerbated emotions that were already in the undesirable category. A wise man, rector of a Taoist sanctuary, once shared that there is no right or wrong, only what is more desirable or less desirable in regard to outcomes.

Patterns are prevalent, whether obvious or not so obvious. What we do anywhere we do everywhere. If we are easily swayed by circumstances to act dishonorably, then how can we expect life to respond kindly? Unfortunately, these types of situations have the potential to damage relationships when they are not addressed. Occasionally situations cause normally honest people to act dishonestly. Can we forgive and forget? Are we are brother’s keeper, and as such, empowered to confront in kindness? What are the risks and rewards?

Professionally speaking, one has a commitment to performing in order to fulfill job description requirements. Right action is predicated upon desired results. In large companies, many people must work together cooperatively to fulfill the needs of the company, be it building widgets or providing software support. In these environments, Maslow’s hierarchy of needs plays a major role in personal motivations.

When one is confident and produces results with relative ease, others begin to question their methodology. Some will look at the success with disdain while others will inquire of the secrets to their success. A good manager will usually empower the people below them by capitalizing on the successful techniques and sharing them through less direct methods, such as interpersonal skills development.

In one particular case involving the aerospace industry, the use of interpersonal skills gave this one quite an advantage in an arena that seemed to be bereft of these types of individuals. Promotions came quickly into the most dynamic area of the company; production control. In a departmental meeting, consisting of nearly 40 individuals, the basic reaffirmations of job duties and requirements were made with special emphasis on soliciting ideas from the group as to how management could better support the department and its people.

This one, not realizing the inherent snake pit, spoke up with the request for interpersonal skills classes. He honored the ability of those who came up through the expediting realms and their success. He also stated that now the daily dealings were with professionals, most of which held degrees and had been in professional environments for some time, requiring a greater skill level to accomplish tasks without any real authority.

Traditionally the power hungry, go-to-your-boss types exacerbated these environments and inherent difficulties with production schedules if their needs were not met. Success was had at the expense of others in most cases and too often one had to watch the back to make sure that nothing was sticking out of it. Some of the personalities were so blatantly self-serving that production flow was stifled just because of insubordinate actions of others in retaliation of aberrant attitudes.

After suggesting interpersonal skills classes, this one was shunned by many of the department’s staff. Nearly a year later there was another meeting and it was discovered only after its completion. Acknowledging the faux pas, the suggestion of interpersonal skills classes was made again, citing that the job was people working with people no matter what the product. A request for a consultant was made and the search performed by myself, accessing the network of professional through University of Phoenix.

Three weeks later we had a small meeting, the consultant, the general supervisor and myself, who was still just a member of the department with no management involvement. The consultant presented his team building approach, referencing work he had been doing for the Navy, Motorola, Sperry, Honeywell, and Intel. The general supervisor genuinely liked the prospects of what this program offered and acknowledged that he would have to consult with his superiors before making a decision.

Another three weeks passed. One day my supervisor, along with the general supervisor came up to me with the news that I was being demoted. It was decided that I was not performing up to standards and with my personal problems, an imminent divorce, they thought it best that I return to second shift for a while, resuming work in an old position as an expediter. I was at a loss and felt totally degraded. What could I do?

Just out of curiosity I had a friend look into the statistical records of department performance. My rating was one of the highest in the department, always exceeding goals. The one thing that I could take pride in, having accepted the demise of my marriage, was taken away. To this day I have trouble rationalizing the results of my best efforts to serve the company. How could this have happened?

There were no other warning signs, or at least none I felt apparent. Now, what could I do to show the iniquity? Was it worth the time and effort to stir the pot to find out? Would it have been prudent to file a grievance with our human resources department? What could I base it on? The department statistics were supposed to be confidential and available only to managers.

Unfortunately I took the easy road and did nothing. I was emotionally bereft from major efforts to keep our marriage together. I felt like I’d put my best foot forward in both worlds and was currently legless, having lost both at the hips. Somehow I made it through and came to the belief that it was all for the best. I was fine being responsible for production of units used in commercial applications. I had recently just come off a task-team that had been working on reducing military spares delinquent shipments.

I’d made a suggestion to the team leader that, when he followed through, brought him an $800 suggestion award. It was apparent that if I was going to stay in that environment that I was going to have to become just like it. Rather than having to make the choice, it was made for me. Still, if I were in a similar situation today, I would do it all over again. The company eventually brought classes in a year after I left. The job got done, even though I wasn’t there to witness.

How does one guard against such situations in management today? Can companies truly excel when their employees are under constant threat of retaliation? Have we lost the concepts of doing good business with a handshake and your word as your bond? Are we so blind as to not see that true selfish motivations of even our president? Was the 9-11 event a total scam just to get to the oil in Afghanistan? Obviously there are conflicting opinions.

What is the truth? Are we not in a major enigmatic ethical dilemma as a world? Are the ‘best practices’ taught through programs college management programs truly worthless on the global scale? If I had arrived from another planet just recently and were attempting to figure out the society here, I’d have great difficulty with the so-called ethical and moral behavior that is acceptable as the best that can be done presently.
