My Vision of The New Virtual Organization World:
Global and Widespread Adoption of Virtual Organization Aptitude Assessment for All Personnel

by Pierre Coupet


So what exactly is “The New Virtual Organization World™” and how does it differ from the “virtual world,” “virtual reality world,” and the “brick and mortar world”?

Well, the “virtual world” consists of all the applications, tools, services and technologies that are made available to us all from the internet. Whereas, the “virtual reality world” is a digital simulation of one or more aspects of our real “brick and mortar world” environment. And for those of you who may not be familiar with the “brick and mortar” term, the “brick and mortar world” is the real and physical world that we live in.

On the other hand, “The New Virtual Organization World" is a world that is primarily made up of “virtual organizations” that inhabit the “virtual world” and peacefully coexist with the “brick and mortar world.” These virtual organizations derive their resources from not only the virtual world and virtual reality world but also from the brick and mortar world.
 

So, prior to going any further, let me define a virtual organization. “A virtual organization is an organization which strictly consists of the following: a virtual workforce, a virtual workspace, and adherence to a strict adoption of the virtual organization management discipline (i.e., best practices, policies and procedures for operating and managing in a 100% virtual environment in accordance with the founder of the discipline).” Absent any one of these three criteria, an organization shall not be deemed to be a virtual organization.

 

Now that you have a very slight sense of The New Virtual Organization World, let me share with you my vision of this new world and how it will have a transformative effect on human evolution in the centuries and millennia to come.

 

Global and Widespread Adoption of Virtual Organization Aptitude Assessment for All Personnel

 

Whether you work for a mom-and-pop organization, one of the largest corporations in the world, a non-governmental organization (NGO) or major nonprofit organization, a governmental entity, or an educational institution, advances in virtualization technologies and social and collaborative tools and services are forcing all organizations to consider how to become more efficient and productive in a virtual environment.

 

However, as many human resource executives and hiring managers have already discovered, working in a virtual environment is fraught with a number of dangers and significant challenges and, therefore, is not suitable for everyone. The million-dollar question then becomes, “Besides using my gut feelings, flipping a coin, or giving someone a chance and seeing how things work out, how can I tell whether or not a person is suitable to work in a virtual environment and where can I get that answer?”

 

The answer lies in Virtual Organization Recruiter, the only such service provider in the world and a company which I chair. Virtual Organization Recruiter provides, among many other virtual organization assessment solutions, a formal, standardized Virtual Organization Aptitude Assessment solution for all employers worldwide. Henceforth, employers no longer have to take a shot in the dark, cross their fingers and hope for the best; play Russian roulette or guessing games; or utilize unreliable homegrown solutions from well-meaning employees that are tantamount to “having the blind leading the blind” or “in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.” For the most part, these homegrown solutions typically end up being an exercise in futility and throwing money down the drain.
