With technology as our fuel, we propel the power of human potential – in our lives, in business, in government, in
The approach we use in our work is about embracing Whole Systems as it transforms personal, professional, organizational, and community development. The common denominator connecting one segment of your life to another is YOU. Technology has firmly planted all of us in a digital (integrated) society that moves, morphs and changes; twenty-four-seven. Our world exists in NOW.
Whole Systems is far more than a scientific theory, it is, quite simply Human Nature – the natural order of life. Anything that is human nature is in our DNA – it is a wisdom we are all born with, and thus a knowledge we all have.
To institutionalize creativity, leadership,
We build synergy (a bridge) between the expansion of individuals, organizations
As a holistic system, our digital world mirrors nature. Its foundation is one of constant change. If we are to "Challenge, Build, Transform and Thrive," life is not yesterday or tomorrow - it's NOW. Einstein said, "We are all born to genius." Our genius is revealed when we live at integrity with our "authentic self" in the context of NOW.
To thrive in NOW is mastery. It merges the balance of knowledge, intuition, skill, and practice into a seamless flow, so no matter what the world brings, you have the acuity to respond. This is a skill we all possess, and to thrive in today's real-time world, this is who we must be.
"4th Wave" Whole Systems Government
Fourth Wave Government is a transformative "Whole Systems" environment where employees at all levels collaboratively co-create real-time outcomes and 10x improvements.
"In the end, leadership is less about celebrated acts of momentous achievement, and more about building relationships that are sustainable, finding common-ground where all voices are heard and valued. It's about modeling our personal best. It's about teamed environments where sharing and caring
Since 2012, ORA Systems has had the honor of iterating and leading the intrapreneurial efforts of government innovators for the State of California in a pioneering program that is building, through CalHR’s 9-Leadership Values, a common language of leadership and shifting the paradigm of and trajectory for innovation in government.
The engine of Cal-IPGCA is fueled by the dynamic interaction that exists between 9 distinct program areas that function interdependently in real-time. To enhance real-time innovation, Cal-IPGCA's organic approach breaks through silos to cross-pollinate people and resources across all participating departments and agencies of government in the State of California.
ORA Systems is pleased to announce the Cal-IPGCA Cohort 2019 Outcomes:
California Innovation Playbook for Government Change Agents, Cal-IPGCA, is structured as a 360° applied training environment. Trainees toggle between monthly classroom training and applied experiential learning within their work environment. Integrating and synergizing participation across all levels of government – from entry-level to senior executives, innovation teams come together to develop specifically targeted projects or programs that meet key challenges identified by the State of California agency leaders.
Post Event Summary: Cohort 2019 Day of Innovation
ORA Systems, Inc., as the Chair and Executive Sponsor of the Cal-IPGCA Program, was responsible for leading the design and implementation of one of the most prolific programmatic expansions since its inception in 2012. Specifically, the program added to its already robust curriculum, two Rapid Innovation Champion Summits that produced 1699 data points responsible for guiding the Cohort 2019 teamed moonshot projects. Also designed and launched was a 2019 Hackathon as well as the launch of the Cal-IPGCA Innovation Force. In 2019. the Cal-IPGCA Innovation Force culminated its activities with a partnered deployment (with the Cal-IPGCA Association), of a 2020 pilot project that integrates attributes from all 4 innovation priorities. In summary, here's our Day of Innovation Brochure. Our "innovationists" inspired attendees by deploying new boundaries of thinking, leadership, change, and innovation. Our innovation teams revealed outcomes to their moonshot projects. The essence of a Moonshot is the combination of a huge problem, a re-imagined solution to that problem, and the creation of innovative ideas that can shift the approach and outcomes of people, processes, and technology to make that solution possible. To develop their Moonshot projects, the Cohort 2010 Innovation Teams were given Enterprise-Wide Government Challenges, identified by the State of California leadership.
Each link provides video outcomes. Each Moonshot project features the teamed Whitepaper.
