Objective of VOMI
Executive-In-Residence Program

The objective of the Executive-In-Residence Program is to allow leading executives from industry, government and academia to get a real insight into the world of virtual organizations we call “The New Virtual Organization World.”

It’s an opportunity for you to gaze into (and actually experience) the future of mankind – our future.   A future of virtual organizations that we are all heading toward whether we want to or not,  regardless of where in the world we are located.


About Founder

Pierre Coupet

The founder of  VOMI Executive-In-Residence  is also the founder of the modern virtual organization management discipline pioneered since 1997.

He is also the founder of VOMI (“Virtual Organization Management Institute”), VOMI Virtual Organization Academy,  League of Extraordinary Virtual Organization Executives, The New Virtual Organization World Consortium, Virtual Campus Dormitory Consortium,  Virtual Residential Community Consortium, and a number of other virtual organization entities and initiatives.

Who and What We Are

Participation in the VOMI Executive-In-Residence program is  By Invitation Only for an exclusive and select number of distinguished corporate executives and future VOMI virtual organization leaders who have a deep interest in this world of virtual organizations that we are heading toward :: The New Virtual Organization World :: and want to know what it’s really like to be in the Virtual Organization Ring instead of just sitting on a fence or occupying a Virtual Organization Ringside Seat.   

It is also open to Sponsored Executives and others who are sponsored by their employer or other organization.    Individuals are NOT eligible to apply on their own and incur out-of-pocket expenses for this program.


How It Works

Virtual Organization Project and Guardian Assignment On Your First Day.     You will be assigned a Virtual Organization Project and Guardian on your very first day and an appropriate project timeline based on the length of your stay in the program.

Role of Your Virtual Organization Guardian.   Your Guardian’s role is to strictly observe and monitor your performance in the virtual organization environment  AND to answer all relevant questions that you may have.   The more questions you ask, the more you will learn.  He is not there to teach you the virtual organization management discipline.

No Guardian Interference in the Affairs of “Brick and Mortar” Mortals.   Your Virtual Organization Guardian is NOT allowed to interfere in the day-to-day affairs of brick and mortar mortals.   Other than giving you a layout of the virtual organization landscape,  a basic road map, and the tools that you will need in order to embark on your virtual organization journey,  your Guardian is specifically restricted from trying to manage you or enforce the rules.   Other than answering your questions, what you do with the information given is really up to you.

Judgment Day.    At the end of your journey, your Guardian will give you the results of your performance during your brief virtual organization journey.   Information that you can use to prepare yourself  for the arrival of  The New Virtual Organization World era :: thus becoming a Virtual Organization World Prepper.

Executive-In-Residence Award.    If you successfully complete your project, you will receive a VOMI Executive-In-Residence Letter of Successful Participation that you can include on your resume and social profile.





Deep Insight into Virtual Organizations.    Opportunity to gain a deep insight into the world of virtual organizations we call “The New Virtual Organization World.”

Significant Collaboration.    Opportunity for extensive interaction with your Guardian, the founder of the virtual organization management discipline :: and colleagues from  industry, academia and government  around the globe.

A Set of Fresh Eyes.    Opportunity to look at current and planned investments in human resources and technologies as well as future R&D efforts with a set of fresh eyes.   Now that you’ve gotten a glimpse of (as well as experienced) the future,  “Should You Follow the Herd or Prepare for the Future?”

A Career Game Changer.     You’ll now know what you need to do from a personal, family and career standpoint in order to prepare for the future and welcome it with open arms.

One Question

Why Should I Participate in the Executive-In-Residence Program?

That is the sort of question that only you can answer after you’ve had a chance to go over the opportunities that this program offers.     Therefore, here are the opportunities that we are making available to you:    

  • Flexibility::  
    • If you received an invitation from-and are being sponsored by-VOMI.   Participation in this program does NOT interfere with your current full-time job.  
    • If you are being sponsored by your employer or other organization.    You will be working with us on a full-time basis during the entire duration of your stay with us.  No need to worry about trying to meet the demands of both your employer and the VOMI Executive-In-Residence Program.     
  • A chance to gaze into the future:   this world of virtual organizations we are all headed toward whether we want to or not ::  “The New Virtual Organization World.”  
  • It’s an opportunity for you to see  for yourself  how well your current skills and capabilities  measure up in that new world  and the steps you need to take in order to begin to prepare yourself for what’s coming down the pike.  
  • It’s also an opportunity for you to begin to explore opportunities that you never thought of or were even aware of.
  • And last but not least, it’s an opportunity for you to stop and think and regroup in terms of all your current assumptions of what the future holds for you and your family, your career, and your organization and begin to look at things with a fresh set of eyes.  

As well, admission is not automatic.


Focus on Sponsored Executives

We are very pleased to announce the launch of  VOMI Executive-In-Residence Program, effective May 1, 2016.
