Real Time All the Time

Unlike other virtual enterprises, our cooperative efforts are not supported by computer networks alone. We communicate and collaborate in real time with our partners and have regular face-to-face meetings to ensure that we all are on the same wavelength in terms of available opportunities, progress status, and analyses for additional skills required. Our network (or ecosystem) of partners is constantly changing, based on the needs and wants of our clients.

Who We Are

We are a Social Enterprise that functions as a Virtual Enterprise, consisting of retired executives, professors, thought leaders, researchers, authors, and government leaders.

Our Mission

Support and nurture cities/communities, enterprises, and organizations that are focused on developing and creating the products and services needed to improve the overall standard of living and QoL.

Vision

Aid cities/communities and enterprises to become smart, resilient, sustainable, and green by a) pursuing and applying the emerging Fifth Industrial Revolution (5IR) solutions, b) mastering Digital Transformations, and c) dealing with the ever-increasing Digital Divide.

Guiding the Way

Knowing how to embark on the Smart Cities journey makes all the difference between success and failure and between having a Leading or Exemplary Smart City vs. An-Also-Ran or Mediocre City.

A Word of Caution

Some roads are dead-end, others are too narrow for comfort, and others yet, are too treacherous and risky.  Choose the right road (actually a Highway) and be safe and happy.  Don’t be fooled by technology vendors!
  • Most consulting firms will push you down the technology path, which will only take you to a narrow street. Technology is necessary, but it is NOT The Big Picture of The End All, Beat All
  • We promote The Holistic Approach to becoming Smart
  • The People and Social Aspects are more important than the Technological aspects. Having 45,000 cameras and 50,000 smart poles is great, but their level of smartness (City IQ) only increased by 10 points. The goal is to increase the level of smartness by 100+ points. Yes, Cities have IQs just like people, and like people, the ones with higher IQ enjoy a better and healthier life (it’s all about the Quality of Life that matters). We know how. It is the new Social and Human Services, a new type of Democracy (called Participatory Democracy), the Cultural Dynamism and Strength … and Spirit Of Excellence and Togetherness that makes a city really smart and great. Economic Development, Smart Growth, Smart Jobs, Smart Culture, Smart Education … and Wealth Creation are all dependent on the willingness to be Smart and better than others. It’s the same as what great people want in life.
  • Key Reminder: The Proactive Approach is always better to be recognized locally and globally as an exemplary Smart City. Reactive Approach is for cities that lack vision, leadership and guts.  Please don’t be part of the new emerging Rust Belt called The Dumb Belt.

A True Smart City

The overwhelming majority of them have self-declared themselves to be Smart Cities — only a handful of them deserve that label today. They ignore the most important aspect of “Smart”, which has to do with new innovative (citizen-driven and focused) services, and a much-improved quality of life.

The Heart of The Matter

The overwhelming majority of them put all the emphasis on ICT and the technical infrastructure (incl. physical devices), while ignoring the human, social, environmental, economic and governmental factors (incl. EDP).

A Key Realization

The 5 th Industrial Revolution is a lot more than another Industrial Revolution. It is a New Renaissance that will dramatically change all aspects of life including new behaviors, new mental models, new work and lifestyles, new relationships, etc. More importantly, it will put humanity over
technology.
