A good business model is a narrative that answers some age-old questions as stated by Peter Drucker, Who is the customer? What does the customer value? What is the underlying economic logic that explains how we can deliver value to customers at an appropriate cost?
“The best way to predict the future is to invent it.”― Alan Kay at a 1971 meeting of PARC
Fleet Réalta is essentially a Non-Profit FinTech, a financial technology corporation committed to building synergetic instruments that address fundamental human needs. These needs are oft couched in terms of critical intelligence which in turn make possible the reliable delivery of services we call critical Infrastructure, together forming the underpinnings society relies upon.
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”― Albert Einstein paraphrase of text written May 24, 1946, Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists
The organization science of Fleet Réalta federated unionism can best be described as a practical demonstration of Technocratic Sociocracy, continuously informed by Environmental Psychology. Our corporate economic model is Co-operative Capitalist, Worker-Ownership, with the core business fundamentals expressing our commitment to Economic Democracy for Social Democracy.
“You never change something by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”― R. Buckminster Fuller
Within the Fleet Réalta communities of practice, we start with the core assumption that Mental Health is a fundamental public good and a universal human right. Psychosocial and Physiological Health and Fitness is the single most critical factor determining not only individual and collective survival but the realization of sustainable creative potential and productive capacity that ensures our species vitality and prosperity.
Therefore, the Fleet Réalta raison d’être, its reason to exist is to instrumentally serve to promote the survival and prosperity of its constituent members, both workers, and patronage. Every attribute of corporate citizenship must serve this greater good through the practical application of rigorous science or be summarily replaced.
What best serves our communities way of life, by intention become the products and services we demonstrate and share for the public good, asking remuneration commiserate with our value of self-sufficiency, with a prudent reserve and planning mindful of risk.
We live in a volatile and ever-changing universe. Continuous management of change, and so of risk, is of limited efficacy unless coeval with the development of a people who are resilient of mind and body, individually and collaboratively fit to adapt and overcome.
