Welcome. Thanks for visiting. This website is dedicated to the proposition that mankind is endowed with certain unalienable capabilities, that among these are consciousness and intelligence ….[1] We hold these truths to be evident:

1. Intelligence can prevail[2] even in organizational and institutional settings.

For a fraction of the cost of traditional management consulting, Applied Research Mentoring enables you and your organization to build your understanding and capabilities (not theirs) and better seize opportunities, yielding tangible intelligence dividends.

2. Applied research can be more broadly and beneficially understood and implemented.

ARMs for the Rest of Us encompasses articles, lessons, stories and interactive exercises to bring to you the benefits, insight, and power derived from knowledge application.

3. Knowledge production need not be restricted to an exclusive technological elite[3]

Since 2016, I've worked to establish and develop a new professional doctorate in Strategic Leadership at the newly expanded Jefferson University. This is not academics for academia, but rather an unconventional program to develop broadly beneficial working knowledge.

4. Academic research may often be rigorous; industrial research may often be apt. But research that's rigorous AND relevant is rare outside of the massive funding supporting military and high priced medical investigations.

We conduct rigorous, high value added research in all sectors where we're engaged. I provide here a few links, especially to survey research that I've conducted.

5. Bio +. Most everything in America (and in my experience, throughout the world) that's broadcast over the airwaves, on the web, and especially on cable “news” is an insult to intelligence. And most of what's inflicted on the captive audiences of most classroom up to and including graduate programs are little better.

As time permits, I try to provide material and sources that are not an affront to sensibilities. Intelligence, as such, rare though it is, provides intrinsic as well as extrinsic rewards.

champagne-glasses... Cheers!

So, have a look around. If you would you be so kind, please sign our guest book (beta) or email me to let us know what you think and what brings you here. We would love to hear from you. Really. Maybe even meet someday!

For now, (cyber)cheers! To a great journey together and the hope that intelligence of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.[4]
