Smarter ... Faster ... Stronger™
Welcome to the World of SuperOrg!
The Future of Work Is Here - Business as Unusual!
Make the Shift!
Prevent Your Own Kodak Moment
Contrary to the old Kodak Moment - capturing the special times in our lives forever - the new Kodak Moment is when an organization is confronted with a make-or-break strategic decision and blows it. This is exactly what the corporate leaders of Kodak did when they applied linear instead of exponential calculations to determine how long it would take before the digital camera they invented would pose a threat to their company’s existing market dominance.
Today, the looming Kodak Moment for all corporate leaders is the moment they decide to develop their organization into a pre-SuperOrg company instead of a post-SuperOrg company – the moment they unknowingly decide to prepare for the past instead of the future. Here's a situation that hopefully will help you make the right decision.
Imagine you need to communicate in print and voice, perform basic calculations, keep up-to-date on current events, and have access to information on a wide range of topics. You are given the choice between purchasing a smartphone or, instead, purchasing a basket of goods including a typewriter, landline phone, pocket calculator, television, and encyclopedias. If you leverage SuperOrg to build an organization with a single, integrated Total Capital Management™ function led by a single Chief Capital Officer™, you are choosing the organizational equivalent of the smartphone. If instead you build an organization with separate Finance, HR, IT, Strategy, Quality, Communication, and Legal functions each led by separate, multiple, C-level positions, you are choosing the organizational equivalent of the basket of goods from the past.
SuperOrg’s raison d’etre is to prevent corporate leaders from having their Kodak Moment by providing the Future of Work today. All that's missing is your action.

SuperOrg - The Next Big Thing
According To WIRED Magazine ...
The way to spot the future - to spot the next big thing - is to look for interdisciplinary pioneers who cross-pollinated multiple disciplines to create a smarter, faster and stronger capability far beyond existing technologies, disciplines, and practices. This is SuperOrg's story in a nutshell.
SuperOrg is an innovative, interdisciplinary system of organizational intelligence, agility, and adaptability we call “supervention” created by our weaving together 30 management principles, theories and models. Think of SuperOrg as your own magic carpet elevating you and your organization to a level of performance conventional wisdom says is impossible. All that's missing is your action.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why do so many companies destroy or sub-optimize shareholder value? The root cause is the omission of systems-level thought and action needed to build high-performance organizations that consistently do the right things the right way - and do nothing else.
2. Why are so few companies managed at the systems level? The main reason is that, until now, it has been very hard to do, so most people ignore it as an option and don’t even try.
3. Why is the systems level essential to optimal value creation? Because it provides deep knowledge of the web of cause and effect relationships in organizations, equipping executives to solve large, complex problems creating extraordinary value unattainable at the departmental/functional level. In addition, it is the only way to identify, develop, and integrate the right parts of the whole.
4. What is the difference between a heap and a whole? A heap is an organization whose parts are misaligned, disconnected, and working independently, creating negative synergy and sub-optimal value. A whole is an organization whose parts are designed-to-fit, seamlessly integrated, and working interdependently, creating positive synergy and optimal value that is sustainable. SuperOrg equips executives to turn heaps into wholes.
5. Why is SuperOrg a breakthrough opportunity? SuperOrg is the integration of 30 performance-enhancing management principles, theories and models into a simple workflow unleashing their cumulative power. Even if someone had expertise in all 30 disciplines, without SuperOrg, they would not be able to manage their interdependencies essential to breakthrough results. Now these extraordinary outcomes can be achieved even if the users have no knowledge of the 30 disciplines. This is why SuperOrg has been called “magical” by a systems-level expert integrally involved in its development.
6. Why does SuperOrg always achieve extraordinary results when implemented effectively and completely? Because it is a principle-based (not rule-based) recombinant invention uniquely designed at the systems level. This is why SuperOrg is a unique opportunity to achieve your own "Miracle on Ice."
