Who We Are

As a 501(3)(c) public charity, we partner with other entities from industry, academia, governme nt, and the nonprofit community to explore new approaches to problems. We appreciate that we live in a world characterized by VUCA−−one marked by volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity−−so we understand the need to explore the untried…to be open to finding the unexpected…to taking a systems-type approach to problem solving.

The Foundation’s principals include former senior leaders within the Departments of Defense and Veterans Administration; nonprofit executives who understand how to integrate science, technology and strategy for public benefit; and corporate CEOs,physicians and nurses, and educators in research, quality management, analytics, medical administration, and advanced technology application. Our team’s experience gives us in-depth knowledge and understanding in each of our areas of interest. When we sit down to address an issue we bring an intellectual dexterity no one else can match. We know the issues…we know where the landmines are…we understand the ramifications that a single change can have upon systems that are this complex and interdependent.
