Welcome to DST 1031 Essentials with Kay Properties — An in-depth look at the many recurring themes and nuances to the Delaware Statutory Trust (DST) investment process.   Topics will cover 1031 exchanges, ins and outs of the Delaware Statutory Trust structure, timing, cash investing, REITS, funds, real estate and more.   The kpi1031.com platform not only provides access to these 25+ different sponsor companies, but also custom DSTs only available to Kay clients, full due diligence and vetting on each DST property on the platform (typically 20-40 DSTs), and an active DST secondary market. Kay Properties team members collectively have over 150 years of real estate experience, are licensed in all 50 states, and have participated in over 30 Billion of DST 1031 investments   In this week's episode, Vice President Matt McFarland and Vice President Orrin Barrow talk about the risks when investing in real estate, specifically in DSTs. This is an important topic prior to making any investments and today they share how DST investors mitigate risks when they're getting ready to invest in a property.   Key Takeaways: [1:00] Risks and disclosures. [3:50] About Kay Properties & Investments. [4:30] Matt introduces Orrin and today's topic. [5:40] How are clients educated about the DSTs risks? [6:30] With any investment, there are inherent risks. [7:50] DSTs include fees so having confidence in the sponsor company's business plan and competency to overcome those fees is important. [9:10] In addition to introductory conversations, Matt shares that they have a lot of resources available for educational purposes and actual private place memorandums. [10:35] How do they identify risks and mitigate them through the DST structure? [11:25] Some of the risks in real estate are foreclosures. Orrin shares some of the scenarios where this can happen. [13:00] Orrin talks about different diversifications of an investor's proceeds and how this can help mitigate risks. [14:10] Orrin also advises that if you don't need to take on debt in your exchange, then you can opt for debt-free properties to alleviate risks. [14:55] He also shares what they do at Kay Properties on top to alleviate as much risk for the investor. [15:50] Matt also adds further about concentration risk and why they try to avoid that in Kay Properties. [17:55] He also mentions about certain asset classes that they won't touch in Kay Properties and explains why they view it to have higher risk. [19:00] Matt also talks about competition risk and how their due diligence team vet their properties to identify this risk. [20:20] In this very compressed market we have these days, Matt stresses the importance of these risks to be aware of and mitigate. [22:25] Orrin also shares his sweet spot to start digging into the offer before your intended closing in today's market. [23:35] Active vs passive investor.

Don't blame them though, because you'll spiral even deeper negatively.  If you are to have any control over your own experience, you have to acknowledge that you and you alone are in control of your vibration.  You have the power and the right to turn your focus away from difficult people.

Welcome back to the Scale Your Small Busines Podcast with your host, Jillian Flodstrom! Today, we're talking about delegation. Where to start, how to keep it going, and where you can actually end up making more money. Let's dive in.   The best way to start thinking about delegation is through a list. List out everything you have to do on that day. Once you've laid it out, simply pick your least favorite item on the list–bam, there's your first delegated item.    By delegating your least favorite task, not only do you get the time back in your day, you get the mental space and energy back. When you have a task you don't want to do, you naturally tend to procrastinate. And we all know what happens when we procrastinate–more procrastination.    If there's a difficult task that would take time to learn, there's a good chance there's someone out there who specializes in it. When you do that, you're supporting your own business by hiring an expert, plus you're supporting another small business in a ripple effect.    When we go back to the list we made, it gives us an opportunity to consider combining tasks into a larger position that can be group-delegated to a specialist. Then, you're able to free up even more time in your day in one swoop.   If something pops up, write it down! Keep your list going as tasks evolve. Use a notebook, a phone, a napkin–just list!    If you're wondering how you're going to afford all this, that's the easy part. When you have such a significantly large chunk of your day given back to you, it gives you room for ideas and space to create more streams of revenue.    Key Takeaways   The best way to start thinking about delegation is through a list.   Once you've laid it out, simply pick your least favorite item on the list–bam, there's your first delegated item.    If there's a difficult task that would take time to learn, there's a good chance there's someone out there who specializes in it.

If you are feeling overwhelmed, burnt out, and under-appreciated, this episode is for you. Kris welcomes friend and client Joan Dillon with the Glassboro Child Development Centers in New Jersey. Joan is also the “Change the World Winner,” and after hearing her talk about her commitment to her core values, it's quite clear why. Joan talks about the shift she made from feeling like she needed to do everything at her center to learning to trust her team and helping them feel empowered and on board with the company's values. Joan talks about taking control of her own health and wellness, and how that freed her up to put more energy into building up her team, leadership, and culture. She discusses how Glassboro has grown from an early childhood center to a multifaceted agency, and how she hires in accordance with her mission and core values in mind.   Key Takeaways: [5:27] Kris gives an update on how she's been “clearing out the junk” energetically, and making space for even more things to come with what she is aligned with at her highest level. [10:26] Glassboro Child Development Center is a private nonprofit organization, and Joan has been there since 1988 when she started out doing school-aged child care. [11:33] Joan is proud of the work they do to help families which they describe as ALICE (asset limited, income constrained, and employed). She was in an ALICE family herself and knows that they too deserve the highest quality of care and attention to detail. [16:00] Fun fact! Joan would describe herself as an even-tempered dance mom. Yes, they do exist! [21:54] Joan talks about driving to the Summit in 2017 because she had bad flight anxiety, and how the event changed her life and began to show her that she didn't do everything all on her own. [28:22] Instead of asking for permission or forgiveness, ask for support. [29:05] You have to believe in yourself and believe in what could be, and then garner support for that. [30:36] Joan talks about how her team and leadership and culture got stronger, as she learned to ask for support. [33:20] Joan never knew life could be so much fun. [38:55] How does Joan hire and train to her core values, and what about when they brought everyone back after COVID-19? [42:14] Good leaders learn to take care of the managers in a way that helps them get what they need. [49:08] Employees should know that they are working there because they want to be, not because they have to. [50:11] Nonprofit doesn't have to mean reduced quality.   Quotes: “We find creative ways to help hardworking families afford childcare without decreasing our price and decreasing our value.” — Joan “Nonprofit doesn't have to mean reduced quality.” — Joan “Now I can't even fathom being in that space where I felt like I had to do everything.” — Joan “I never knew life could be so fun.” — Joan   Sponsored By: ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI) Use code CCSC5 to claim a free course!   Mentioned in This Episode: Kris Murray The Child Care Success Company The Child Care Success Academy The Child Care Success Summit Glassboro Child Development Centers Glassboro on Facebook Joan Dillon The 5 Love Languages

Jason Hartman interviews Jeff Snider, Chief Investment Strategist and Head of Global Research at Alhambra Investment Partners. Consumer prices and asset markets have created the illusion of a red hot economy, but according to Jeff, the bond market has been telling us what's been wrong since 2008. Jeff shares with us some incredible data that shakes up traditional thinking and gives us his insights on the Federal Reserve, interest rate hikes, monetary policy and money printing and the correlation between the yield curve and treasury markets. Jeff also gives an in depth explanation of the hidden monetary system running the world. Even though most people have probably never heard the term Eurodollar, it has undertaken the functions of the global reserve currency and it did so a very long time ago as an ​​offshore currency market. The Eurodollar was developed on its own without government or individual private effort outside of every country's regulatory regime.

Joe Schurman teaches from his deep experience in the software, machine learning, AI, and processes that organizations need today as they transition to data-driven technology companies. He names some of the cloud services and tech tools he uses to lead clients to start with a user case, break it into stories,  build a team led by the solution owner, assign the stories to developers to build, and iterate product demos until the Minimum Loved Project (MLP) is achieved. Joe offers observations on investing the “right” amount of time in projects, and wisdom on developing a learner mindset.   Key Takeaways [2:06] Joe Schurman is a 2nd-degree black belt in Kung Fu. He once judged a competition in Las Vegas. He has four children; two daughters and two sons. [2:57] Joe is an expert on the fringes of what we can do with computing technology. What we can do changes every day. In the past couple of years, from an AI perspective, with data and automation, it's taken leaps and bounds. [4:30] We're still pretty far away from general AI, despite Sophia, an AI robot that was granted Saudi Arabian citizenship in 2017. Today's AI depends on the programming we give a machine and its interpretation and output. Joe's focus is narrow or weak AI. His business colleagues call it magic. Computer vision is an area he loves. [5:45] Joe uses a lab environment across Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, and Amazon Web Services. The capabilities that have come up in the last year are “just insane” with what you can do with computer vision and building libraries of what the machine can see. [6:06] Joe loved seeing a computer vision capability demonstration at AWS re:Invent of tracking every NFL player on the field and predicting injuries and other types of output and insights in real-time. The machine used narrow AI to access a library seeded with “a ton” of data to interpret the action. [7:15] What you can do with this technology comes down to the data that you feed the engine. Think about the amounts of data that organizations have to sift through to generate reflective or predictive insights. Auto machine learning helps organize the data into useful information such as anomaly detection in software engineering. The data can also come from tools like GitHub and Jira. [8:25] Joe did a fun computer vision project on UAPs for the History Channel, working with some of the nation's top military leaders, building a library of video and audio data to be able to detect unidentified aerial phenomena that were not supposed to be entering our airspace, and curating that library. [10:06] AI started with the idea of speeding up processes, such as getting an app to market faster or gathering insights quicker to make business decisions more timely. [11:28] AI can enhance human performance. Joe starts by finding people who know how to fail fast; to get a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) out the door. Solutions such as quality engineering automation, test automation, and monitoring services for DevOps detect bugs and performance issues quickly and ensure that the quality of the team is sound.[12:47] Joe notes the importance of individuals performing, contributing to, and collaborating as a team. Set your organization and standards governance up first. Look for a platform of technology to leverage that enables you to build and tinker. Finding the latest and greatest tool is no good unless it provides the right level of collaboration with their platform and connection to different processes. [14:53] When introducing ML to an organization, start with discovery, to understand the culture and talent within the organization. How are they communicating today? Joe sees the biggest gap between data scientists and data engineers. Projects tend to fail without collaboration, regardless of the tech. If the data scientists don't understand the domain, then the platform is irrelevant,[17:28] Joe stresses the need for a methodology in place to make any of these aspirations work for your organization. After discovery, there's an align phase. Focus on the outcome and the use case. The solution owner is crucial. The solution owner leads the technology team and brings them together around the client's outcome to develop that use case.[18:12] If you can't take an actual use case and break it down into bite-sized chunks or user stories, then the project will never be on the right track. Start with the use case to mitigate risks. Break the use case into user stories. Match the user stories with the number of engineers that can develop a number of user stories within a given time frame. [18:38] Those user stories given to the engineers are deducted into Story Points, in the Agile Process of engineering software. Price Waterhouse Coopers (PcW) has taken it to the next level, being able to do Engineering as a Service, being able to do it at scale, and being able to pivot quickly.[18:58] Joe explains what can happen if you have a great idea, take three to six months to break down the use case, and fill all the requirements, but hand it off to the Dev team that has no idea what the use case is: you get irrelevant software that doesn't tie back to the outcome! [19:22] Keep the solution team engaged in building the bridge between the subject matter expert stakeholders and the engineers. Every two weeks, demonstrate the iteration or program increment you have built. Does it match the outcome? Does it provide any relevance? Then take the feedback and figure out what happened in that iteration. Fix errors. You will build a product that has value to launch. [20:45] Communicate a lot, so all the people are on the same page! When you have stovepiped organizations where the departments don't talk to one another, you waste time, effort, and money building a product no one will use. One of Joe's colleagues, José Reyes, uses the term Minimum Lovable Project (MLP), where people rally around the outcome, not just the tech. [22:33] What skills and knowledge will the leaders of PwC need to endure for the next five years? Joe says first are character and attitude; people that have a hunger to build something, with a fail-fast mentality, and that are excited to learn constantly, that read every day and learn new technology. [24:27] Then know the tools. Documents exist on the internet for every solution and there is access to services like GitHub to download projects and starter templates without being an expert but just reading the README file and installing the base-level template, learning as you go, and as you tinker. That's way more valuable than coming in as a book-smart expert in a specific product or technology. [24:57] When it comes to tooling, there are products like the Atlassian platform with Confluence and Jira. For an AI stack, Joe typically works with AWS, GPC, and Microsoft, more so on the Amazon side with AWS AI tools, like Rekognition, Glue DataBrew, Redshift ML, Comprehend, and more. Amazon, Microsoft, and Google produce so much documentation and certification to get you up to speed. [26:30] Judgment, wisdom, and character will not be replaced by AI anytime soon. There's still room for philosophy in leadership. There are tools and technologies to speed up the processes, but not the individuals. There are no general AI solutions out yet to replace a pod of application developers, designers, and solution owners to execute a successful MVP or MLP out the door for a client. [27:55] Advice to CEOs: Be patient and understanding. Be willing to fail fast. Support tinkering and R&D, even if the project doesn't work out. Organizations are generally realizing that today they need to be data-driven, technology companies but there is still hesitance over the risk that needs to be taken. [30:03] Why would an insurance company or other traditional company need R&D? Look at Loonshots, by Safi Bahcall for some ideas about R&D. [30:56] Joe shares how he got to this point in his career. He wanted to play baseball but started at Compaq (now HP) when he was 18, writing scripts in Unix and other environments. Just being able to make certain changes to help clients get products faster and seeing the quick response from the outcomes felt like a home run to him! [31:49] Years later, Joe went on his own, with a vision to create telehealth before telemedicine was a thing, using Skype for Business and Microsoft Lync, enabling an API for that. Seeing people connect through a technology he had built, replaced the need to be a baseball star! Joe is grateful for the break he got at a young age and enjoys his work. [33:22] When Joe first started, he was trying to be the smartest person in the room, seeing the instant gratification of making code snippets that tested successfully. Eventually just building the app wasn't enough for him. He got the dopamine hit from seeing users interacting with his code and seeing its value. [34:58] Joe's mentors include many people he worked with. X. D. Wang at Microsoft Research inspired him to tinker, build, and focus on the short-run more than the long-run. Randeep Sing Pal at Microsoft Unified Communications was another great mentor. Also Steve Justice and Chris Mellon, in terms of character and collaboration. Joe shares how they mentored him. [37:23] Jan says something we forget about technology is that there are a lot of failures and attempts before the success hits. We have to be mindful of that as leaders to give people time and space to do really creative, cool things. [38:01] Joe appreciates the opportunity to discuss these things. Joe spent a lot of his career building software solutions that were way ahead of their time. It's frustrating to see telemedicine so successful now, but not when he attempted it. He had to learn to let go. It's not just about releasing bleeding-edge tech; you've got to find some value associated with it to resonate with the end-user. [39:31] Always think about the outcome and understand your audience first. And then be able to supplement the back end of that with bleeding-edge technology, development, tinkering, failing fast, and all the things that go with software engineering. Also, be humble! Get perspective from outside your bubble to build a better solution and be a better person. [40:49] WHenever you're setting out to build anything, start with a press release! Write a story of what it would look like if it were released today. Then just work back from there!   Quotable Quotes “There are so many new and cool technologies and innovations that are coming out at the speed of thought, which are pretty fascinating.” “I've been in real cloud engineering for about a decade, and from an AI perspective, with data and automation, over the past five to 10 years, in terms of running on a cloud environment, and it's just taken leaps and bounds.” “You've got to be able to connect that [data] environment to a use case or an outcome. If you can't do that and you can't enable a data scientist to understand the domain, then the data platform is irrelevant. I see a lot of performance issues occur because of that disconnect.” “If you can't take an actual use case and break it down into bite-sized chunks or user stories, then the project will never be on the right track.” “In this industry, you're constantly learning; constantly reading.

Today's guest on Beyond the Balance Sheet is Ned Van Zandt, a well-known actor and writer who has dedicated his time to helping those who struggle with substance use disorders and other mental health diagnoses. Ned is no stranger to the world of recovery because he has had his fair share of experiences with a transitional living home and has benefited from sobriety and mental health programs. Diana and Ned talk about his work as Program Director of Transcend Recovery NY and how giving back to others has been life-changing in his own story with addiction and recovery.    IN THIS EPISODE:    [01:11] What drives Ned to do this work with others in the recovery realm [09:40] The world of acting, addiction, and the potential for self-aggrandizement [10:36] The counter intuitive act of giving back [12:44] The power of aiding and connecting with others [15:13] The nuances of tough love [16:32] Advice from Ned    KEY TAKEAWAYS:    Helping other people actually helps you in your recovery process. It's a counter intuitive thought but focusing on others helps you heal. In Ned's experience, tough love and a refusal from his family to bail him out in his time of need were both the worst and  best experiences of his life. There is a positive neurochemical response associated with giving back. When we give without expectation of receiving, our oxytocin and dopamine levels elevate!   BIO: Ned Van Zandt has more than 15 years experience in the world of recovery. He is Program Director at Transcend Recovery NY. He has a passion for helping those who struggle with substance use disorder and other mental health diagnoses. He was inspired to work in the field after his own personal experience living in a transitional living home, which made him believe people can recover and change their lives for the better.

Welcome to DST 1031 Essentials with Kay Properties — An in-depth look at the many recurring themes and nuances to the Delaware Statutory Trust (DST) investment process.   Topics will cover 1031 exchanges, ins and outs of the Delaware Statutory Trust structure, timing, cash investing, REITS, funds, real estate, and more.   The kpi1031.com platform not only provides access to these 25+ different sponsor companies, but also custom DSTs only available to Kay clients, full due diligence, and vetting on each DST property on the platform (typically 20-40 DSTs), and an active DST secondary market. Kay Properties team members collectively have over 150 years of real estate experience, are licensed in all 50 states, and have participated in over 30 Billion of DST 1031 investments   In this week's episode, Vice President Matt McFarland and Senior Vice President Jason Salmon talk about the flexible nature of the DST with its rules and guidelines and how that flexibility works with diversifying portfolios for more passive investments gains.   Key Takeaways: [1:00] Risks and disclosures. [4:15] About Kay Properties & Investments. [4:55] Matt introduces Jason and today's topic. [7:15] How do DSTs play into the 1031 exchange when it comes to identification based on the rules of the exchange? How is it different from a traditional purchase? [9:10] There are three rules of identification: the three-property rule, the two hundred percent rule and the ninety five percent rule. Jason explains each of them. [10:05] Through 1031, your proceeds must go through a qualified intermediary. Jason explains how the flexibility of DSTs can be useful here. [12:00] Matt adds that since DSTs are pre-packaged investment properties, it can alleviate a lot of closing risks that can come with a 1031 exchange. He explains how. [16:05] DST offers to diversify in a lot of ways but because of that, it is a matter of collaboration to know the best investment for each and everyone. [16:20] Matt gives three examples of how an individual can utilize a DST for their 1031 exchange. First is by using it as a primary exchange option. [18:05] The second example is about covering an exchange. [19:00] Number three is using it as a back-up ID. [24:15] When it comes to diversifying a portfolio, how do investors take advantage of the DSTs flexibility? [25:05] What does diversification mean? Jason shares what it implies. [26:34] With the DST structure, you are building your own diversified portfolio. Jason explains how they can help investors with that. [27:30] Diversification can span in many different aspects.

Will is an experienced HR professional who brings a wealth of knowledge and passion about people and how they work to his daily life.  He is consistently inspired by his life and his teachers, and he wishes to pass that along to others, and has made that his mission in  his career and through the books he writes.  We have a fascinating conversation about authentic, work priorities, how you can figure out for yourself what those are, and what traditional employers may not be understanding about the new career landscape.   KEY TAKEAWAYS  You need to work to live, not live to work. Understand that your life needs to exist outside of your job Emotional intelligence is just as important as experiential and academic experience, and emotional intelligence *is* a skill that can be learned and practiced.  Work backwards, but not in terms of a project, from the end of your life. What would you wish you had done differently? Work from that place of knowledge. How can we re-invent leadership to understand intrinsic motivation? How can we harness the lessons that we as a world have learned the past few years to help make work more meaningful and filled with purpose?   BEST MOMENTS   "That's where good leadership comes in, I think -- not just using carrots and sticks, but really getting to know their people and leading with a sense of personal motivation and compassion. ... You only learn over time that it's about the journey and not the destination." "Writing a second book was better for me as a person. It helped me focus on, you know 'what does bring you joy'." "Nobody says 'gee I wish I bought a nicer car' or 'I wish I'd gotten a better raise or promotion.' We need to remap."  "The Great Resignation is happening amongst those leaders who aren't modern leaders. ... (employees are) leaving these leaders who haven't delivered for them."  ABOUT THE GUEST  William Schirmer is a senior management professional in HR, having been involved with Human Resources, Talent Management, and Learning & Development functions for domestic and international firms over more than twenty years.

On this episode of IMPACT, we had a conversation with entrepreneurial guru, Lee Richter. Lee has been named in the top 100 business leaders for 7 years, as well as the Top 100 fastest growing businesses in the Bay Area. She is a part of the Forbes Business Council and is now making her imprint in the digital space known as non-fungible tokens (NFTs).   Lee helps us unpack the very complex idea of NFTs and what actually inspired her to cement herself in that arena. Being a successful entrepreneur since the 90s, one can assume that Lee knows a thing or two (or a thousand) about trends and finances, so you won't want to miss the very valuable nuggets of information she has imbedded throughout this episode.   NFTs and crypto are the inevitable present and future. What NFTs are doing to our modern society is very important work because they work as a way to demonopolize the financial institutions that control all aspects of revenue in this country and the rest of the world, until now. We have knowledge, we have power, we have technology, and we must learn to work with it instead of against it. Tune in and find out more about this form of currency that's changing the way we view art, community, and wealth! KEY TAKEAWAYS:  [6:29] Lee's background and how she got started in the world of NFTs and crypto [7:55] What exactly are NFTs [17:58] Example of a practical form of a NFT [21:11] Are NFTs strictly digital art or physical art as well [32:47] What are smart contracts and digital wallets [40:44] What to look for when starting to invest in NFTs HOW TO CONNECT WITH OUR GUEST:  https://goasklee.com/ https://nftswithlee.com NFTs and Beyond Podcast MEMORABLE QUOTES: 5 reasons to NFT: “#1 is authenticity, #2 is access, and #3, you get to also do things like fractional ownership.” ~Lee Richter (Listen to the episode for # 4 and 5)   “So as a marketer, I'm like wow, this is really special. Not only do you bring your favorite people with you, but those who come with you are actually engaged and like being part of the community.” ~Lee Richter   “UC San Diego just launched that every single student who graduates will not only be getting their diploma through NFT but also their transcripts via NFT so that they are in control of it and it's validated that it's true.” ~Lee Richter   “Everyone puts their own value to it. For them, it was worth it to get the picture they wanted and the experience. Now she owns that picture. And to her, it was meaningful to have that golden egg more so than the extra thousand dollars.” ~Lee Richter   “Now what happens beautifully and why artists love this so much is that in the NFT transaction, they can build themselves in forever.” ~Lee Richter   “They can build it in so 300 years from now, their heirs are still getting a percentage of that art being sold, whether it's music or physical art, or digital art.” ~Lee Richter   “There's many many ways that people can take the digital and turn it physical or take the physical and turn it digital. So it's interactive based on the smart contract, what you get for it.” ~Lee Richter   “A digital wallet is where you convert your currency… to the currency to trade inside the NFT marketplace. Generally when you start, it's most likely going to be etherium (ETH).”  ~Lee Richter   “None of us had the same opportunity with Amazon. But we do have the opportunity here to jump in and see what can we do and what can you make the best for you and your brands and your life.” ~Lee Richter “You can build whatever you want in the smart contract. But it's determined between the buyer and the seller. Where the seller pays for it, they take it with those terms.” ~Lee Richter

This too shall pass.    "If you're willing to acknowledge what your gifts are, then your relationship with yourself, with your body, with other people, with money, with business allows you to not seek a purpose in life to reach a goal until you live your life purposefully." —  Kass Thomas   About Kass Thomas: Kass Thomas is a successful business entrepreneur, motivational speaker and empowerment coach.

Innovation in organization is at least equal in importance to technological innovation and product / service innovation. It tends to get less attention, which is a great opportunity for imaginative entrepreneurs to implement change for competitive advantage. Dr. Annika Steiber has studied organizational innovation for over twenty years and is a global authority. She shares her insights with Economics For Business, including her analysis of the most dramatic organizational innovation of all, Rendanheyi. Professor Steiber's most recent book is Leadership For A Digital World (Mises.org/E4B_170_Book1), and is her most comprehensive guide yet for business management in the digital age. She's the author of eleven books, including The Google Model (Mises.org/E4B_170_Book2) and The Silicon Valley Model (Mises.org/E4B_170_Book3). Her Menlo College Rendanheyi Silicon Valley webinars are available at Menlo.edu/Webinars. Key Takeaways and Actionable Insights Organizational innovation doesn't get the attention it merits, even though it can contribute greatly to customer value generation. Innovation thinking tends to focus on technology innovation and product/service innovation, with the definition of innovation as the successful introduction of new customer value to markets. Organizational innovation is not often seen through that lens. But it should be. We can reframe the problem this way: does bad organizational structure subtract from the customer value experience? We can all think of ways in which it might do so: for example, poor customer service when customer-facing employees are not empowered, and layers of bureaucracy that impede responsiveness to customer needs. In those cases, organizational innovation could readily generate improved customer experiences and enhanced customer value. Dr. Steiber had made organizational innovation her research focus for over two decades. There are a small number of organizational innovators, and a lot of imitators. Google has been one of the originators of new organizational models. Many organizational innovations are pre-packaged — LEAN is an example — and implementers are following someone else's lead. Others are long drawn out evolutions of incremental improvement without a great burst of innovation. One example of what Dr. Steiber calls "an entirely new animal" in organizational innovation can be found in the early years of Google, which she studied first hand — she was embedded in Google as an independent researcher. She observed a different management model than anything she had seen before anywhere in the world. From this research, Professor Steiber developed six new management principles, published in her book The Google Model, and summarized in our free PDF (Mises.org/E4B_170_PDF). Silicon Valley companies employed and expanded on the Google Model. Dr. Steiber studies the peers of Google in Silicon Valley and found that they all adopted the Google Model and its six principles, some more slowly than others. Interestingly, her research pointed to a DNA advantage for Silicon Valley going back to the gold rush: it was a location that attracted and was populated by innovative and entrepreneurial people who were capable of building businesses and new institutions from scratch in the late 19th Century, and in the 20th Century, it was the place where Information Technology emerged, was expanded and accelerated and first put to use in business. Knowledge and knowledge flow replaced management structures and face-to-face administration, including at early pioneers such as Hewlett-Packard. Read "The HP Way"—an early Silicon Valley organizational innovation manifesto (Mises.org/E4B_170_PDF2). The six management principles Dr. Steiber describes are: Dynamic capabilities. Ability to integrate, develop, and reconfigure internal and external competencies in order to meet rapidly changing surroundings. A continuously changing organization. Instead of waiting and springing into action after needs become pressing, a company should ensure that its organization is permeated with a proactive approach to change. A people-centric approach. People-centric, focusing on the individual and liberating their innovative power and providing them with a setting in which they can express their creativity. An ambidextrous organization. Two different forms of organizational logic within the same organization: daily production, which works best with a conventional planning-and-control approach, and innovation, which requires greater freedom, flexibility, and a more open attitude toward experimentation. An ambidextrous organization must successfully handle and utilize the energy inherent in the contrast between these two forms of logic. An open organization that networks with its surroundings. Permeable boundaries and a constant and conscious exchange of information with the surroundings. Long-term survival requires that companies develop into more open networking systems. A systems approach. A holistic view of the system and understanding that the system can spontaneously develop new characteristics that can be difficult to predict. These new characteristics can be positive, negative or a combination of the two, creating a demand for additional measures, such as decreasing the fallout from unexpected negative system effects. We highlighted a couple of these new management principles. A continuously changing organization The most successful companies are designed for constant renewal. They expect change all the time, and they lead its development. They aim for excellence on every dimension, applying three layers of expertise: Be proactive: Search for change internally and externally. Embrace it and practice it.Experimentation culture: Try every initiative assuming that it could be a new opportunity. Mobilize fast.Don't follow. Take the lead, change the standard, be disruptive rather than disrupted, practice creative destruction. These companies never lose external focus, continuously monitoring developments and competitors that could disrupt them, and constantly market-testing new initiatives. They have highly developed sensing capabilities. An ambidextrous organization Combining the two logics of flawless daily execution for known established businesses and exploratory experimentation seeking unknown new business innovation is an organizational breakthrough. It's a systemic view of an organization combining different kinds of leadership for the two styles, different cultural signals, different milestones, different incentives, and different evaluation criteria. One system is designed for stability and one for change. Rendanheyi: the most radically entrepreneurial organizational innovation. True organizational innovation is very rare, but there is a new one that Professor Steiber described for E4B called Rendanheyi. Rendanheyi is an organizational innovation for the network age in which a large company (Haier, the Chinese company that first instituted the model has 70,000 employees) splits itself into hundreds of microenterprises of averagely 60-70 people — but could be as low as 10 or so - each enterprise performing as its own entrepreneurial business with its own P&L, its own customer base, and control over hiring, budget, and distribution of profit, and over its own value-adding line of business. Defining characteristics include: No bureaucracy, hierarchy, or pyramid forms of organization; no managers.Employees are not referred to as such — everyone can be an entrepreneur is the mantra; they choose which microenterprise to work in. The focus is on the customer or end-user and not on pleasing the manager above. Incentive systems reward all employees for value creation, and all individual employees are constantly trying to understand how to increase value for customers. Increased value creation is rewarded, and so wealth generation is democratized.Zero distance to the end-user: this is a Rendanheyi principle that brings the consumer or customer inside the microenterprise to co-create new value in the form of new products and services and solutions. Wholesalers and retailers, for example, can inject distance between a Haier micro-enterprise and its users; the enterprise might look to digital solutions to eliminate that distance. Generally, they seek to identify barriers to zero distance to the users and get rid of them.End-user is a general term, so that those micro-enterprises that are serving other businesses rather than consumers can nevertheless practice the zero distance principle. For example, there may be a marketing micro-enterprise within Haier that serves a manufacturing micro-enterprise and a sales micro-enterprise. All can be aligned with zero distance and can work to fulfill end-users' needs.Paid-by-user. This principle focuses micro-enterprises on end-user value by emphasizing that all businesses live or die based on whether the end-user pays them for value perceived, or not. It's Austrian customer sovereignty in action. The general tendency in paid-by-user is away from transactional relationships to extended relationships across multiple purchases in ecosystems and via subscriptions and memberships. Relationships are an important focus, and the focus is on creating life-time users. A sports team on the playing field is a sound analogy for Rendanheyi. There is no central control, each team member is collaborating and combining specialized skills for a team result. There is only limited call for corporate functions at the center of the Rendanheyi organization. There is a role for developing and furthering vision that crosses multiple micro-enterprises, and for portfolio decision-making as to where to invest resources. Some orchestration functions can be assigned to the center — for example, furthering ecosystem thinking whereby micro-enterprises serving a consumer domain such as the kitchen can develop multiple services including information services and integration services across multiple appliances, tasks, and problems for the kitchen ecosystem. The result of the Rendanheyi model is the animation of a living system, a superorganism. Rendanheyi provides a genuinely new and different perspective on entrepreneurial organization at scale.
