If you are a person that is seeking to achieve change, ask yourself the following questions.
If you are a member or leader of a group, ask yourself the following questions.
If you are an shareholder (e.g., citizen, business owner, stockholder, pensioner, pension fund manager), representative (e.g., board member or legislator), management executive (e.g., CEO, President, Prime Minister, Governor, Mayor, General), corporate executive (e.g., CxO, Director), manager, supervisor, or member of the workforce of an organization, ask yourself the following questions.
Do you need to successfully achieve your intended results at the lowest cost, with the highest quality, in the fastest time (i.e., good, fast, and less-expensive success)?
Do you, or all of your organization or group, need to work from shared knowledge and know other's terms (e.g., ideas, terms, processes, and vocabulary)?
Do you need to find, connect, and organize the information and data around you?
Do you need to make your mass of information content more relevant, accessible, securely-sharable, and useful?
Do you need information and situational awareness from your external operating environment as well as your internal operations?
Do you need to immediately adjust your intentions, plans, and operations when your situation changes, to get inside the cycle time of the opportunity or threat?
Do you need to reduce operational error and tighten management, and thus reduce the potential of waste, abuse, and fraud?
Do you need appropriately transparent controls, accountability, and discipline in your processes?
Do you need to influence the external situations that you cannot control, to your benefit?
Does the world and U.S. National financial market, companies, government, non-profits, volunteers, and citizens need to improve the way they manage their interdependent endeavors?
Does the U.S. President and his team need new capabilities to improve the management of the next U.S. Federal Government's Administration, and the management of those who receive US Government funds, from bailouts, funded programs, contracts, grants, etc.?
The typical answer to the above questions is "yes". And there are many management, planning, and improvement approaches and technologies to satisfy some or all of these common needs.
But is there one approach that can be used to simplify and satisfy all of these needs, while simultaneously including, blending, and simplifying all of your other efforts?
The answer again is "YES". The General Endeavor Management (GEM) approach, with its Enterprise Management Architecture (EMA) method of blending terminology, communication, operations, and technology (TCOT) is designed, and proven, to provide one single unified networked-knowledge-organization-system (NKOS) and a unifying operations management approach.
GEM-EMA is for any person, group, organization, community, or combinations of these, that have needs to successfully, measurably, and continually achieve their intended results.
GEM-EMA can directly enable achieving measurable success in your personal, group, community, organizational or combined endeavor's success. It enables this success while building on and enhancing your previous efforts, approaches, and technologies. See the site content hierarchy.
This site presents simplified GEM-EMA guidance and sample GEM-EMA applications, and enables comment and discussion on GEM and its EMA TCOT approach.
Our professional services are focused on building, with third-party partner companies, enterprise management services Practices for all organizations.
We serve (through our approved service providers) as an "executive" enterprise architect or a "meta" architect that helps define and develop and unify enterprise architecture concepts, methodologies, metaschema, and supporting technology-specifications, that can leverage the less complete OMB FEA, DoDAF, and TOGAF as portions of the more complete "enterprise intelligence-base" provided by EMA.
A good article that illustrates where we propose that GEM and EMA fit within the overall Enterprise Architecture (EA) industry, as a "meta-architecture", is written by Mark Rosen for the Cutter Consortium (http://www.cutter.com/research/2008/edge080129.html).
GEM-EMA provides a "simplifying" method and structure (i.e. of TCOT) for organizing and managing the information of any endeavor. See to our GEM approach, to include EA methodology.
GEM-EMA enables more and more-successful TCOT "co-operation" and "adaptive transformation" across the various endeavors that use the GEM-EMA approach. If an endeavor doesn't yet use the GEM-EMA approach, by beginning to increasingly apply the GEM-EMA approach, they can increasingly gain appropriately-secured, and appropriately-shared situational awareness. This then provides greatly improved abilities to cooperate with other GEM-EMA endeavors, and adaptively transform in relation to their internal and external environments' changes.
If any persons, groups, or organizations want to have a discussion on this site of any of the above referenced OWIS publications, send me an email requesting it, and I'll set up a discussion page for that item. Contributing to the discussion will require free registration by sending an email to mailto:email@example.com.
If you find value in the GEM-EMA and TCOT, please provide donations, sponsorships tithes, and gifts at http://www.one-world-is.com/paypal/paypal-contribute1.htm in line with that perceived value. We make a standing request for annual support of: $10 for individual contributors, $100 for management practitioners such as Management Consultants and Enterprise Architects, $500 for small business, $1000 for medium-sized organizations, and $2500 for large organizations and government organizations.
