Dr. Joe offers a choice of three relationships to create a range of improvement for your business, from fine-tuning to transformational change:
1. Trusted Advisor (The Sounding Board)

2. Strategic Reorientation (Meet the New Economy)
Dr. Joe will implement his proprietary approaches to increase profitability through digital operating models, prioritize transformative AI-based automation, and reach other formalized development milestones for the entire organization (or the right subset of it). This will create high-margin business by lowering costs, identifying monetization opportunities that boost free cash flow, and raising the org’s profile in the company or marketplace. This approach includes formal workshops, application to existing projects and programs, ongoing coaching for implementing staff, and necessary strategic orientation.
3. Tech Giant Transformation (Own Your AI Advantage)
We create entirely new businesses, discovering next-generation technology opportunities, new brands, new customer bases, and capability investments.

This option is the most developmentally rich for participants, who work side-by-side with Dr. Joe to learn the ropes of the new AI-driven economy.
In all of the above options, you and your org will:
