Strategy and Thought Leadership: An overview of what our companies do for our clients

It is difficult to summarize the scope of our activities at the Advanced Human Technologies Group of companies. As such we have recently created a short guide to the major service offerings from our five companies as well as my own work as a keynote speaker and strategy facilitator.

It is not comprehensive in covering the breadth of our entrepreneurial initiatives, however it gives a good feel for the major ways in which we create value for our corporate clients, describing both the types of work we do, and examples of how we have helped major organizations.

Have a look through, and please contact us if you have any questions or would like to discuss how we may be able to support your initiatives.

AHT Group expands its team: Insights from our Sydney team meeting

On Monday April 13, AHT Group’s team members in Sydney had the exciting opportunity to get together and discuss our processes, projects, and plans for expansion. Having recently welcomed quite a few new team members, AHT is shifting to a team project model. This shift requires a comprehensive master plan, refined project team frameworks and new profit share structures. Inviting each other’s input was constructive, with the flow of ideas adding value to AHT’s planning.

We are looking for exceptionally talented people in Sydney (and globally) to help create the future of work!

Please pass this on to anyone you think might be right for any of the roles below!!

Advanced Human Technologies Group is growing, and looking for amazing people for the following roles. Sydney location is always preferred, people from the rest of world are welcome for many roles. In almost all cases these are flexible part-time roles. Read below for context and background.

Lessons on building a successful web publication from Future of Sex

Endless possibilities await us in the future of sex.

Robots may very well become our preferred lovers. Heck, we may no longer even need our bodies to climax. It could all happen in our minds, resembling something like the Demolition Man sex scene between Sandra Bullock and Sylvester Stallone.

The Future of Sex explores advances in sex and technology.

Since taking the helm as editor and writer of Future Of Sex in February, I’ve discovered fascinating innovations that are turning our sexual worlds upside down. I’ve also learned a great deal about growing a promising online publication.

Read below to learn what I’ve discovered from our top articles, our growing website traffic, and our search for great writers.

Getting Talent: Why we do paid one-day trials

At Advanced Human Technologies Group we are building a set of business models largely based on distributed part-time talent.

On our Why Work For Us page on our We’re Looking For Talent site we describe our process for building great working relationships.

We usually begin with an interview and one or more brief tests (later I’ll share more about the kinds of tests we are using and finding useful). From there the next step is almost always a one-day paid trial.

Open Business: Updated Strategic Overview of AHT Group’s activities

At the beginning of 2012 I created an overview of our companies’ activities, primarily to help us to see the big picture of what we were doing, but also to communicate to others the scope of our activities.

We have now redesigned and restructured the overview to make it easier to understand. Again the primary intent is to help me and the AHT Group team to understand the scope of our activities and planned projects, and to prioritize our time and energy. However based on our core principle of Open Business, we also publish it so others can see what we are doing, and apply the structures and ideas themselves if they find them useful.

Launch of updated AHT Group Business Model Overview

In February 2011 we launched a Business Model Overview of AHT Group. It was created to help me and others to understand the scope of what we are doing.

Our model has evolved since then, and I have also developed my thinking on how best to conceive and explain our model. Rather than including all of our activities on the visual, we have covered these in a separate Strategic Overview document. This means our business model can focus on the relationships between our activities and how they build on each other.

Welcome to the new AHT Group website!

In a long overdue move, we have just relaunched the AHT Group website.

While there are currently four companies in the Advanced Human Technologies group, until the relaunch this website focused only on the hub company Advanced Human Technologies, and offered an out-of-date view that focused more on services than ventures.

Our business model (see forthcoming post) is designed around the complementary activities of the companies in the group. Since the domain name for Advanced Human Technologies has been for well over a decade (anticipating the move to a group structure), this website will cover both the group’s activities as well as those of the hub company.
