PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT

Successful change management / business transformation, enterprise management and integration, and leadership and organizational development require integration of leadership competencies and performance optimization (process/quality improvement) to:

  1. Increase efficiency and effectiveness of technical (structural | systems | processes) and relational (cultural | value-systems | behaviors) interventionsfor improving individual, group, organizational, community level wellbeing and performance.
  2. Cultivate high-performance individuals, teams, organizations, and communities to achieve breakthrough levels of successful organizational change and business transformation by simultaneously addressing the technical and cultural dimensions in an integrated manner.
  3. Identify and successfully adopt transformative technology.

Organizational processes and outcomes that successfully address real-world business and social problems are achieved through recursive prototyping, continuous learning, and explicit development of ESCCO (emotional – social – cultural – cognitive – organizational) behavioral competencies, with an emphasis cultural awareness and behavioral competencies. My application of this philosophy has resulted in organizations benefitting over a billion dollars and many thousands of hours in cost savings/cost avoidance — such as transforming 11,520 hours ($1.44 Billion) development and manufacturing yearly loss into 23,040 hours yearly saved ($2.88 Billion saved).
