To identify, appreciate, aggregate, and develop previously undervalued scientific and technical assets--people and systems, internal and external, public and private, open and proprietary--for exceptional impact
Science in the Wild:
I co-create new paths to opportunity, value, and impact with leaders in industry, government, and academe. We realize such potential by applying methods and sensibilities of a diverse scientific community for collaborative inquiry into human behavior and experience outside the laboratory.
Delivering Inter-Temporal Value:
I fill the gap between management consulting and strategy management within organizations in that my developmental initiatives typically are around five years in duration. My adaptive engagements have been as an employer and employee, prime and subcontractor, and sometimes initially as a consultant. In these vested relationships, we realize inter-temporal value by applying an organization's socio-technical resources in new ways, combining them with external resources, developing talent and new offerings, and by using both theory and data to guide the requisite strategic change.
Linking Strategic Innovation to Human Capital Development:
I have spent most of my career creating and orchestrating strategic alliances of unprecedented diversity in industry, government, and academe. The outcomes have been reliably innovative partly because the collective intelligence and long-term relationships in these extraordinary teams are highly effective in creating new ecosystems of supply and demand for human systems and human-environment interactions.
Innovation across organizations provides powerful opportunities for the kind of self development that is critical to sustained success of any leader. Such self development is accelerated by feedback from peers who share a commitment to proven processes that harness outside perspectives and common experience. Our diverse alliances have provided paths for development that enable individuals to realize untapped potential.

An idea worth spreading
My colleagues and I are pursuing development of informal self-organizing enterprises of people who are interested in connecting islands of meaningful interpersonal engagement through dialogue that provides visibility and opportunities for influence at a distance as for people who are co-located.
The objective is for one's observations and opinions to become grounded in the reality of someone else. The influence that occurs in this grounded dialogue has consequences, momentarily beyond the dialogue, that eventually are visible and thus for which one is inescapably accountable.
Grounded web-based dialogue brings the second-person standpoint to peer-to-peer interactions among leaders and influencers who are embedded in different situations. It thus blurs the distinction between presence and remoteness as well as between first-hand and second-hand experience.
I'm passionate about
Transdisciplinary knowledge aggregation and meta-theory; collaborative inquiry outside the laboratory ("science in the wild"); the various (non-obvious) manifestations of science in business.
Talk to me about
I am interested in your experiences (as opposed to mere opinions) about existentially meaningful and consequential interactions with people at a distance through web-based dialogue over time.
