Ventilating Colleges and Universities

It is understandable for societies to evolve, they have to possess the capability to develop in correct and positive ways, and minimally not so right ways, simply because there is no perfect avenue...we learn a great deal from our errors as we do from our successes. And during the 20th Century many mistakes were made in relation to government and societal comprehension of education, management of institutions, health care, organizational structure, human resources, nation cultures and interactions, economics, science, biology, politics, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera, that we have overlooked the necessity of maintaining and retaining curricula, i.e., learning that is profound, factual, quantitatively replicable, and quite frankly concrete in every aspect in teaching upcoming generations charged with contributing to the betterment and evolution of our societies, independent in nature, however, complimentary to each other. Each society, each race of people are distinct and unique of another and each create and develop better ways to improve their homes, neighborhoods, communities and nations. We can never be cloned to be similar or cloned in all applications of life. Unfortunately we experience and continue to experience in this 21st century a devolution of all that is morally good by utter nonsense that has no factual basis for even being in the classrooms of academia, corporation and the general populations.

I have been sponging up the newer directions of colleges and universities these days, not excluding industry in Western civilization, especially concentrating on the quality of offered academic curricula, management styles and processes within corporate, and true leadership understanding of who and/or what a leader is functioning alone, viz. individually, or in groups and organizations. It appears the windows are forcibly being opened, ventilating the needs and demands of people whether they are students, mature, young, and active professionals seeking alternative methods of acquiring a solid education in multiple professions which allow them to use their time and assets in a far better fashion than formats of past 'brick-and-mortar' conditions.

Individuals today appear to seek greater options which allow them to grow without being tied down and unfree to express themselves, or care for their families. More and more seek to, not just discover, but to create, invent, develop, share and apply their talents and abilities more broadly than past generations. They realize their potential, they are more open to collaboration, even while seeking an edge, they provide wisdom to others.

Universities are beginning to fill the gap by offering part-time attendance in the pursuit of academic and professional degrees for this population, and corporate, in specifying the knowledge required of those they employ, are clearly propagating the direction higher education is to consider. Currently, academia is on track with the simple blackboard system, creating transformational executive education programs, and developing paradigmatica awareness in university business schools challenging executive education, among other procedures, enabling students to pursue the acquisition of useful, concrete degrees. Additional procedures and alternatives need be employed to attract even greater numbers of intelligent people who will be those who take the reins and lead us toward greater attainment. However, and most importantly, a learned faculty is a necessary requirement.

AoM Blogger Reporting

Good day:

Since our initial 'welcome post' we have been busy concentrating on easy to access web design, along with installing additions which we sincerely believe will interest and aid all worldwide visitors and members of the AoM/IAoM to the 'splash' section of the site on a routine basis.

The 'Featured Article' section will specifically post exceptional published and unpublished research articles, theories and practices concentrating on the MELT Domain Paradigm of both the AoM and the IAoM, acquired by way of your, or our readings and discoveries regarding management, education(higher), leadership, and technology innovations submitted for consideration to post from both the academic and corporate practitioner global environments.

We are all aware of the necessity of creating new modes of operations within each of these fields; that is to say that management may well need to more speedily evolve away from the traditional past century models of each of these domains on into a more affective practical evolution in this current 21st century.

The thrust of concrete and profoundly necessary practical curricula in both (higher) education (academe & corporate), and a realistic comprehension, learning, training, and application/implementation of leadership positions are imperative to successful managerial functions in all fields of endeavor, environments, and professional involvements. Therefore, theories concerning these variables may certainly manifest from numerous sectors inclusive of the fields of psychology and actual daily practitioner experiences.

Instances of innovation in technology, a field constantly in improvement for the betterment of businesses, societal operations, machinery, human kind, and economics to mention a few are constantly on the move. The technologist, academics and practitioners of today will continuously assist in the discovery of more applicable products and methods of use, which are sure to increase our capabilities toward a greater evolution.

Following the 'Featured Article' section is the 'Daily News' area presently reporting on the MELT Paradigm. We will, however, be making way here for four separate reporting areas: Management, Education, Leadership, and Technology. Visitors and members alike are welcome to submit for posting to these sectors as they come across news-of-interest, to-or-from academe, corporate and practitioner learning's.

NOTE: All articles and news of submission shall be archived for immediate access.

Additionally, the "Call for Participation" in the 2008 AoM/IAoM Annual Conference Schedule of Important Dates hosted in Amsterdam, Netherlands this October 2008 is currently up on the web. All interested persons are invited to participate and/or attend. Your input may well contribute to greater understanding throughout academia, corporate and practitioner organizations.

Until next time,

Dr. Willem Hamel
