Strategic Policy

Research and Collaborative Decision-making

We designed a platform to facilitate collaborative decision-making based on the expertise garnered from a broad spectrum of the development community and concerned stakeholders, to identify, understand, discuss, and design solutions to problems that threaten global human development.

Essential Criterion

Our criterion portends a paradigmatic change in society, how we think about humanity, and its influence in a global context.

Effective Consulting

We provide the balance between expertise and consultative decision-making to articulate unique ways of thinking

Strategic Planning

By devising and exploiting unorthodox formulas we add value to the strategic planning process to deliver quality results 

Antiquated Solutions

There are indistinguishable relationships between current social/economic/political practices and decades of similar successive and unfulfilling cycles.  Implementing antiquated solutions devised in bygone ages to resolve current problems is an exercise in futility.  Obsolescence must cease to be the standard practicing norm.  We need innovative criteria to resolve those long-standing challenges seen below and stabilize a rapidly fluctuating global environment in this era of immense change.

"A GOAL WITHOUT A PLAN IS JUST A WISH"

We Correct institutional failure to plan long-term and to plan globally

How We Engage

● We created the Global Human Development Policy Network (GHDPN) to provide research, experience, and expertise through collaborative decision-making to make effective policy decisions.

● Actionable issues require detailed planning with unbridled resolved to use the creativity and resources needed to break incessant nefariousness that undercut efforts to achieve sustainable objectives.

● We use an all-inclusive planning strategy based on principles of justice for long-term planning that includes systematic and phased-in goals and objectives over-extended time-horizons.

● Our strategy remains congruent with the principle that humanity, as an entity-of-one, is inherent with core moral values that are nuclei to forge intrinsic outcomes.

We Are Engaged

● We need the energy and creativity of youth to kick-start this process because the youth are amenable to ideas that foster change.  In fact, youth make up the vanguard now advocating for social justice.

     

● We work with the media to encourage inclusive coverage of foundation elements in use by impacted human settlements to minimize crises and stabilize recovery.

● Consulting with academic and related professionals, we brain-storm ways that curricula, when transformed, is used to instruct but also encourage diverse opinions—the world’s people and their ideas—to advance global human development.

● Realizing the need for extensive approaches to policy implementation, consideration motivates us to focus on other than short-term expediency as our primary interest is not in maintaining the status quo but transform it.

● We understand that advancing technologies and the use of processes associated with artificial intelligence will impact the future of societies in the world at large.  Our challenge, as a forthright consultancy, is to articulate these wonders in ways that heighten learning, promote reasoning, and provide benefits when used to advance sustainable endeavors.

● We engage with civil society, government agencies, industry, and multilateral organizations and institutions to cover a range of steps in the policy process, consultation, including proposals, agenda-setting, rule-making, coordination, implementation, and evaluation.

● Religious traditions shape the lives of billions of people.  Through the consultative process, we gain spiritual insights to plan, devise, and implement the policy that meets the needs of diverse humanity.​

● Futurists probe the minds of experts in various fields trying to prepare for future problems or gain a competitive edge from foresight to look at what may happen if present trends continue.  They can be a vital resource under conditions requiring forward-looking evaluations, projections, and analysis.

● Realizing the need for extensive approaches to policy implementation, consideration motivates us to focus on other than short-term expediency as our primary interest is not in maintaining the status quo but transform it.

● Of importance is how to best use style differences, reasoning, and understanding of men and women in consultative venues.  This is a steep learning curve, one requiring mutual respect and appreciation, and the wisdom to offset selfish ego with uncompromised decision-making.

The Hard Part

We focus on exploiting human commonalities, those positive elements common to the species, as a means for development planners and practitioners to think and plan for long-term 'seismic' achievements.  In this way, we minimize endangering humankind’s quest to realize sustainable futures.

Plan The Future

To achieve progressive futures, we devise the tools required to garner integrated consensus and place into effect strategic and well-positioned sustainable pathways inspired through the creative will of a diverse humanity.

Vision

Inclusive Diversity
Humankind exists within the very richness of its experiences, its diversity and ethnicities, social stratifications, religious dynamisms and multifaceted cultures. This identifies it as ‘entity-of-one’, a term that implies service at both the individual and collective level and houses a duel requirement: start plans to eradicate human suffering, and engage in those activities that help stabilize an evolving global community.
Collective Will
To ease pain and suffering, one must first learn to look beyond appearances, methods and schemes, results and effects taking place on the physical plane, but to those elements, or lack thereof, that first produced these modes of expression. To consider that being revealed as worn out or no longer of need is wrong.  We should see it as embryonic stages in growth destined to change and evolve to become pillars of support. Anyone who seeks to enlighten the minds of men on this matter must be of clear vision and able to relate abstract idealism via personal example for others to follow.  This manifests a collective will.
Sustainable Pathways
Our aim is to create the tools necessary to garner integrated consensus to place into effect well positioned pathways needed to advance the development process in globalizing environments.  This requires championing human diversity, appreciating its inherent capabilities, validating its spiritual endowment, and invigorating its idealism. Once this is underway, humanity advances through unified tiers of constructive effort to foster a collective.  This results in creating sustainable pathways with impressive and progressive results.
Global Education
Global education is the linchpin of progress.  We need it to develop individual potential and ensure human rights. Yet, in the current environment, twenty percent of the world’s school-aged children will not reach fourth grade, and another twenty percent will not learn basic skills like literacy and numeracy. High dropout and repetition rates combined with other obstacles such as poverty, conflict, gender inequality, language, and disability.  They compound the problem. What it requires is innovative global education tailored to the context of each country’s needs; to provide ways to strengthen teachers, administrators, government, and the community so they can succeed through collective effort.

In the minds of many, education to limited.  It empowers a person to achieve material well-being and to prosper but with little regard for others. Such a materialistic approach to education will continue to exacerbate the disparity between the wealthy few and the impoverished many, perpetuate injustice, further create social stratification, and contribute to the increasing instability.

If education goes hand in hand with a moral and spiritual perspective, it will ensure the stability and prosperity of humanity. Instead of emphasizing competition, education would do well to foster positive attitudes and the need to gain skill-sets because survival depends on our ability to cooperate and on our commitment to justice and human rights.  Innovation is vital for transformation, and we must have access to quality education to secure our place in a global society.

Public Discourse

Public discourse involves not only political issues but also calls for people to act on principle with spiritual perceptiveness and moral persuasion to reshape the character of society.   because they pertain not only to self-interest but also to a better understanding of social life and their commitment to it.

 

There are deep issues involved that pertain to self-interest of a psychological and institutional nature, depending on the form of government be it democratic, communist, authoritarian, dictatorship or some combination of these. At the top end, the public discourse might be on the ability of the government to care for its people. At the lower end, it might involve trying to survive civil strife.

People the world over have similar problems but experience them depending on the policies of their respective governments, societies, cultures, customs, and traditions. Devising solutions to problems means that what’s right for one may not be right for all because each situation has its own unique criteria.

We highlight gripping problems in public discourse in ways that elicit positive feedback. We find solutions through expressing human commonalities (core attributes) and factual renderings, and not fallacious assumptions pertaining to race, ethnic, ethnic, or indigenous origins, of a religious nature, or some other form of social discord.  People must put aside their perceived differences and embrace solutions that promote the common good.  However, there are no easy fixes to long-standing problems that will require planning and time to organize the sustained effort required to resolve them.

Our Resolve

Actionable issues require detailed planning and unbridled resolved to use the needed resources and to provide the creativity required to break cycles of repetitive nefarious activities that hamper achieving stated goals and objectives.

Issues

Social Disorder

One of the pressing problems that confront most of the political and social systems today is the problem of corruption. Its presence is so prominent that scholars are engaged in conceptualizing its totality. They agree to discuss the problem from two perspectives: historical and contextual.  The problem revolves around a fundamental question: Is it a systemic problem, a non-systemic issue-based problem, or an issue-specific problem?  If it is systemic, much depends upon the system itself, they may find a remedy within that specific system. If it is a non-systemic issue, perhaps the solution to the problem lies with the specific issue discussed.

The problem of corruption, political and social, leads to another factor—one that relates to people’s confidence in the political process and the social wellbeing of the country in question. Any analysis of political and/or social corruption should include assessing public behavior towards political actors and social extremities. Another important aspect that demands attention is the area of ‘autonomy’, both political and social, which guides and controls the nature of political and social processes.

The problem is vast and seems insurmountable, but workable solutions will require integrated moral, spiritual, and ethical criteria.

Economic Disparity

In our modern world, everything we do reflects our social, political, and economic ideologies. To understand the failures of our economic system on the scale of an illicit global economy, we must understand how issues such as government theft, drug trafficking, global wealth, money laundering, and the ‘shadow’ financial system contribute to some of our most intractable issues ranging from poverty to hunger, terrorism, and periodic economic crises.

For humanity to progress, we don’t just require an advanced economy. We require an economy that functions as it should, bringing equity and opportunity to all of its participants. It is essential that we disconnect politics and economics. Political instruments are the only tools we have to deal with illicit mechanisms, and until politics to incentivised economics cease, the will for action will not exist.

Market forces do not exist separate from humanity; they result from human will and persistent endeavours.  It did not emerge from nowhere… we made it.  Whether we like it, we must admit responsibility and be accountable for the illicit economy.

Addressing economic challenges will require fundamental changes in how our world works. Many of these changes would come at a massive perceived cost, but the outcomes—over several generations- would exceed even the most utopian vision of a peaceful and fair world.

Nefarious Activity
The word ‘Nefarious’ describes a person’s actions if they are evil or wicked.  It comes from the Latin ‘nefas’, meaning “crime, impiety.” If something is nefarious, it can be both criminal and malicious.

It may be impossible to eliminate nefarious activities at this adolescent stage in human evolution, but in some circumstances and under certain conditions, a nefarious activity diminishes if we apply corrective measures within predetermined situations and institutional structures. This requires collaboration, investigation, in-depth analysis, moral courage, and a collective will to engage agreed-upon solutions. Monitoring is mandatory, and in certain situations, it may require mentoring.

Actions taken will not be an easy task, but it will be a teachable experience with long-term positive results as more people become interested in protecting social welfare.

Emergent Global Ethos

Worldwide, forces in play are stressing humanity’s social and institutional fabrics in ways that reflect the transformative power emitted by a volcanic eruption and the intense heat that emanates from molten lava. Humanity is awash with thralls of discovery, a concrete sign of an emergent global ethos.  The problem we face is that there is no plan in place to guide its unfolding, no means available to guard against becoming overwhelmed.  Leadership, be it as it may, has failed to consider the larger picture, concentrating instead mainly on contrivances to preserve the status quo.

‘As we confront the hard facts of ecological devastation, and environmental degradation unfolding on a planetary scale—with overpopulation, famine, war, xenophobia, technological distrust, pollution, and humankind’s misguided hubris prodding the global ecosystem toward the brink of exponential systemic runaway—we do not believe that politics, economics, and business, or science and technology, working independently or with each other, can offer a unified/unifying vision that faithfully reflects the integrated complexity of this World.

We must develop new modes of interacting with each other and with the global ecosystem. It will use the growing emergence of global consciousness to plan a global ethic, an indicator that such a transformation has begun. The move to define, implement and promote a global ethic in business and religion is cause for considerable optimism.

Humankind’s self-awareness is undergoing a radical period of fundamental transformation, and these initially independent efforts to plan a global ethic are evidence that a profound social and cultural evolution is occurring.  As a first step toward recognizing and cultivating a global consciousness, we must experience the earth as an interrelated organic whole.

This requires us to experience and understand cultures and religions from a global perspective,  and to see human history as global history. The movement toward planning a global ethic represents an important and necessary stage in the evolution of human culture, as it moves toward a forming a global society characterized by a newly complexified global consciousness. 

Complicating this task is the paradoxes fostered by the rapid development and inappropriate application of new technologies. The technological advances responsible for our collective transformation are also responsible, in part, for the social and ecological crisis we face on a global scale. Given the complexity of this situation, cultivating global consciousness will not be a sufficient response. We must radically transform our obsolete modes of interacting with each other and the global ecosystem and commit ourselves to develop a viable and sustainable global ethos that will benefit all of humanity.’

Moral persuasiveness backed by ethical considerations and supported by spiritual perceptiveness and the enduring embrace of justice will safely guide the process.

Process Dependent

We are process dependent on using a set of standards with procedures that comply with our goals to resolve actionable issues. Procedures ensure that goals and objectives meet standards in place to advance global human development.

Procedure

Policy initiative
Policy initiatives and related processes, procedures, and functions are performance orientated.  We evaluate them in reference to global human development and associated activities, and thay remain integral to the dictum ‘humankind lives scientifically comfortable in its oneness as a species’, the guiding principle that signifies momentous events yet to be achieved.
Assessment
Assessment gathers information from processes and procedures, analysis, and actions taken to resolve major issues.  It includes monitoring, summarizing, and providing feedback with results provided to stakeholders, administrators, management, and others so that issues receive corrective measures. Assurances are given that planning, policy guidelines, and overall goals and objectives remain congruent with overriding principles and objectives.  Incorporating methods to maintain the institutional focus guard against failure to plan long-term and to plan within global parameters.
Action Plan
Planners, stakeholders, administrators, managers, and leaders collaborate to plan solutions to major problems encountered. The assessment may reveal a lack of knowledge and weaknesses in training as primary culprits hindering the successful completion of the processes and desirable results need. We give serious consideration to establishing a ‘Center for Collective Knowledge’, that would also include comprehensive education and training to assist ‘frontline’ aspirants in their efforts to resolve difficult challenges.
Intervention
With intervention, leadership takes steps as outlined in the action plan and starts the implementation process. Leadership advises frontline actors of the series of changes taking place, and also reveal changes made to the original action plan. The Center for Collective Knowledge would organize education and training programs in a way that’s least disruptive to ongoing strategic operations.
Evaluation
Evaluation within the planning process examines the role of strategic requirements and the implications for successful goals accomplishment.  We emphasize evaluation and related functions instrumental in successful global human development planning and processes, and relationships and interrelated activities that exist between planners, administrators, managers, and stakeholders.
Adoption
After evaluation and testing the success metrics of the action plan, stakeholders and leadership must determine if the changes made will then be a new update adopted to the organization planning and policy metrics.
Implementation
Consistency is necessary for policy implementation to avoid confusion and untimely delays. Strategy to advance global human development is complex, operates across and within borders, and involves diverse social constructs and stakeholders in a variety of diversified settings. Compliance with the stated requirements is important, and any deliberate breaches of policies or procedures is dealt with in the manner most appropriate.
Monitoring
Policy maintenance refers to keeping the policy or program in place after we adopt it.  Policy monitoring refers to detecting how the policy performs after implementation. To monitor a policy, we must get data back about implementation procedures. A good implementation plan suggests ways in which we can generate ongoing information about policy performance from assessments, reports, and support documentation through feedback from leadership, managers, and stakeholders.

Projected Expectations

To realize our expectations, we are willing and able to exploit human commonalities to achieve a common good.  We assess positive elements common to the human species as the means to think, analyze, test, and plan for long-term, systematic, and progressive achievements.  In this way, we heighten humankind’s quest to achieve sustainable futures.  This requires dedication to duty and the will to stay the course.

There can be no short-term solutions without lasting effects.  The problem is how to achieve positive short-term results that channels support for progressive accomplishments over-extended time horizons.  The answer is to have a long-term plan with stages for achieving systematic objectives.  It includes requirements, consistence, endowments, and corrective criteria to offset unpredictable challenges.
