Are these among the questions your organization is striving to address? If so, Dr. Douglas C. Engelbart's Bootstrap Institute, in collaboration with Sun Microsystems, Netscape and other leaders, is offering you an opportunity to participate in a unique exploration of a high performance future - a future you can begin to apply today ! 1B
The Bootstrap Alliance is a set of collaborative forums, programs and technologies designed to advance our understanding of that high performance future. Subscribing organizations explore areas of self-defined interest and need related to their own development of high performance capabilities. 1C
Participants in The Bootstrap Alliance engage in a sustained series of confidential, collegial and collaborative discussions. They use emerging collaboration technologies to conduct their discussions, informing their own understanding as they work through high performance strategies. 1D
With a charter, one-year subscription to The Bootstrap Alliance, you can engage in a unique approach to organizational learning and staff development - a high return, high leverage, low risk program for continuous improvement. 1F
Open Teams is an extended discussion and investigative forum exploring what it takes to develop high performance organizations and individuals, with a special focus on teams, collaboration and knowledge management. A common objective is accelerating organizational improvements. 3B
Led by Doug Engelbart and guest moderator Patricia Seybold, participants will evolve a shared vision of the future, identify and prioritize common challenges, and organize into virtual teams to investigate and "push the envelope" in key challenge areas. 3C
These will be working teams, actively co-evolving the technologies, practices, and strategies that will be needed - discussing, gathering input from stakeholders, formulating requirements, researching related work, investigating tools and practices, putting them into practice, incorporating lessons learned, and making their work available to others in The Bootstrap Alliance and in their home organizations on an ongoing basis. 3D
The Open Teams program emphasizes an evolutionary, "learn-by-doing" approach, grounded in real-world requirements and pilot use, resulting in working solutions and lessons learned to be conveyed directly to in-house teams. 3F
Your high performers and organizational leaders - both current and future - interact with innovators in areas of management, learning and technology R&D. You gain the benefit of individual learning and development grounded in the practical performance needs of your organization. 5B
The virtual nature of these interactions, supported by collaboration technologies that include interactive video conferencing, limits costly time-away-from-task while providing a sustained professional development experience. 5C
As a Charter Subscriber, your staff members can participate in as many collaboration forums, including Open Teams, as desired. Your participants can comprise an organizational improvement team, bringing the value of their experience to diverse parts of your organization - truly a high return investment in staff development. 5D
