What Is Critical Mobilization Group (CMG)?
First and foremost, we are community. Note that indeed we are a community, indelibly bound within that community by profound life changing shared experiences, fully committed to the individual and communal welfare of all, and to leaving the world in better shape than we found it. A real community, this, yet one such as has never before existed…the multifaceted collective body of First Responders to the World.
We are multiple global professional associations of those who work to resolve the world’s most profound problems, a community of many thousands of Individual Member professionals and aligned Corporate / Institutional Members from at this point 86 nations and a diverse array of disciplines that are accustomed to addressing many of humanity’s greatest problems, and to helping impacted populations recover from them. These associations are comprised not only of Individual, but also Corporate / Institutional Members, a seamless garment of professionals accustomed to resolving the most catastrophic and complex problems facing humanity.
We keep you working, we keep you growing and we augment your ability to make a difference. Critical Mobilization Group™ shall focus on full and continuing employment and career growth for Individual Members, fostering entrepreneurial opportunity among and between them, as well as accelerating business development for Corporate Members.
We are Wartime Professionals International Association™, actively engaged in all manner of contracting operations relative to conflict avoidance, conflict execution, and conflict recovery, as well as drug interdiction, hostage rescue, and other volatile issues that may necessitate the use of force.
We are Peacetime Professionals International Association™, working globally in nations beset by widespread poverty, deficient governance, intra-societal strife and other wounds of societal scope in an ongoing full spectrum effort to alleviate poverty, provide humanitarian aid and medical care, reduce child mortality rates, extend life spans, develop agriculture, facilitate economic development, manage land and natural resources, build institutional integrity, reduce corruption, deliver education, etc. Yes, our mission is vast, but we are exactly the people accustomed to carrying out such operations.
We are Disaster Recovery Professionals International Association™, with Individual and Corporate Members providing all necessary rescue, recovery, and humanitarian relief services in natural disaster scenarios, whether slowly developing such as agricultural collapse, desertification, and famine, or traumatic sudden events such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and tsunamis.
We are also Commerce & Development Professionals International Association™, with Individual and Corporate Members continually engaged in global economic development and the fostering of international commerce, providing sustainable, profitable business relationships that are simultaneously rewarding to nation states, to the corporate entities engaging in them, and to the generalized upgrading of economic development and prosperity in the populations of emerging nations. Members of the other associations can express their interest in joining this one, but nobody can purchase a membership. Membership in this association is intended at this point to be by specific invitation and appointment only, with those appointments reserved to true movers and shakers in international business who have become very active in Crowd Contracting®. Clearly demonstrated best-in-class expertise, strategic vision, and a clear penchant for action will determine who is invited by CMG to participate.
NOTE: Member organizations’ expertise in any particular discipline are often applicable to and employed in conflict situations, third world development, as well as disaster response scenarios. For example, just consider the utility of medical care, linguist, civil administration, sanitation, or the provision of food & water, which may well be needed in all three scenarios. Thus one may well find that resources are drawn from all of our associations for any one project, depending on the issues deemed necessary to address by the Contract Issuing Authorities.
We are Crowd Contracting®. Critical Mobilization Group™ has created a platform called Crowd Contracting® that represents a comprehensively dramatic shift in the way Individual Members will advance their careers, and in the way a great deal of business will be conducted in the future by Corporate and Institutional Members. It will as well constitute a vehicle through which the creative and entrepreneurial practitioners of international development and humanitarian professions can develop organizational or project concepts, refine them, promote them, fund them, and implement them. Check out our Join Dollar Program™ and our Contract Mentor™ platforms.
In addition, we are Critical Mobilization Institute™, itself a multifaceted entity that embodies an institution of higher learning, mentoring programs to our memberships, a think tank dedicated to policy development in resolving world problems, global consulting services, and more.
We are also Critical Mobilization Magazine™, an online magazine publishing analysis of ever changing global developments relative to the international community’s response to adversely impacted populations, whether needs are related to challenges of man-made or natural origin. Special emphasis will be put on publishing the analysis of our own association memberships, which includes a great many published authors of renowned expertise.
We Are A Global Company, A Global Force:
We are a global company even now as we launch, with a membership spanning the seven continents. As we move forward, we will be opening multiple corporate facilities in the US, as well as overseas. Aside from these company owned facilities, entrepreneurial opportunities will be made available that result in fully aligned National / Regional CMG Chapter offices to launch operations in a variety of countries. Watch for the announcements as plans are executed, people put in place, and events unfold.
The world remains a volatile, dangerous, and ever changing place. As long as it remains so the expertise of people such as those comprising our Critical Mobilization Group™ (CMG) staff and professional associations will be needed, thus providing a mandate for getting them better organized, equipped, trained, financed, and coordinated to decisively contribute to the alleviation of suffering around the world.
In the process of doing so, we intend to actively help Individual Members experience accelerated career growth. Believers in lifelong learning, we understand full well that training and development are critical to career growth, and that the will and discipline required of one to prepare himself or herself for the future can dramatically increase the odds of that future unfolding as envisioned. Whether it’s honing one’s skill sets for a career trajectory already set in motion, whether one is considering a career change in another field, or whether one is entrepreneurially minded and aspires to at some point build his or her own successful business, we are as an organization committed to the provision of all the necessary developmental tools to facilitate an Individual Member’s success. A great deal of careful thought has gone into laying out a very clear course for achieving this, as well as instilling a sense of community and belonging that will prove unassailable.
We will actively strive to assist Corporate Members accelerate their business development and global scope of operations, as well as enhance the credentialed expertise of their staffs. Through our Crowd Contracting® platform they will have access to contracting opportunities, scope of operations expansion, personnel expertise – and profits – such as has not been experienced in the past. Select Corporate Members and Individual Member entrepreneurs will also find opportunities for more of a joint venture type of relationship with CMG as new functional areas and business units come online.
The synergies attendant to our combined efforts will provide decisive support to Contract Issuing Authorities in more effectively organizing results-oriented responses to global problems through more consistent contracting access to the best talent on the planet.
Lastly, and most importantly, through those synergies attendant to our combined efforts we will help adversely impacted nations recover from catastrophic circumstances, restore normalcy, upgrade governance, promote health and welfare, as well as economic development. With unparalleled access to the best talent on the planet, and as an organization fully committed to the task, we will make a positive difference in the lives of many millions of people. That is the mission.
Critical Mobilization Group Contracting Breadth & Depth
Via CMG’s Crowd Contracting® operations, sovereign governments, international governing bodies, and other Contract Issuing Authorities (CIA’s) will find their prospective contracting opportunities are being presented for consideration to the world’s elite relevant contractors. Via Crowd Contracting® individual firms will be apprised of CIA’s needs and be able to propose on those opportunities. Additionally, based on the scope of needs spelled out in RFQ’s / RFP’s, prospective contracting firms will also be able to team with other Corporate Members in joint venture bids that bring the best expertise from multiple organizations to bear on addressing contract requirements. Extensive and highly specialized expertise contract requirements are thus made much easier to fulfill, especially in circumstances where some of a firm’s human resources, essential to meeting the requirements of a new contract, might already be committed to contracts whose duration would preclude their participation in the new opportunity. Through Crowd Contracting® multi-firm teaming arrangements, those needs can still be met by the firm that is ideal to otherwise meeting a CIA’s needs.
Critical Mobilization Institute Consulting Services
The scope of CMG’s membership, as well as internal capabilities, enables us to provide consulting services upon request to sovereign governments and international governing bodies. Where thorny problems may have previously seemed insoluble, CMI can assemble the expertise to mobilize and deploy all necessary resources, anywhere on the planet, to expertly assess any situation, propose alternative solutions, work realistically to project costs, as well as evaluate the potential gains and adverse consequences of those alternatives, and assist governments in developing fully informed strategic decisions.
The potential scope of such consulting services is unlimited, as our accessibility to the requisite expertise to resolve problems is unlimited. The appropriate world class team can be assembled to address any need, whether it be related to special operations counter-insurgency needs, back channel diplomatic efforts to resolve conflict situations, military and police training, institution building, good governance, democratization initiatives, economic development, national infrastructure, agricultural collapse, emergency management planning in earthquake or tsunami zones, or any other imaginable scenario. The necessary expertise is available to be put at the disposal of nations in need!
