POINT OF CONTACT LinkedIN Public: http://www.linkedin.com/in/AndresAgostini Twitter: @SciCzar (that is to say: www.twitter.com/SciCzar) Website: http://agostini-andres.blogspot.com/ -- IN A PERSISTENT SEARCH OF THE HOLLY GRAIL TO RISK MANAGEMENT AND FUTURE STUDIES AND FORESIGHT RESEARCH! -- ANDRES AGOSTINI (BRIEF PROFESSIONAL PROFILE) Andres Agostini operates as an adviser, consultant, strategist, professional futurologist (incumbent of Future Studies), project leader, manager, etc. He institutes such undertakings in the tradition of a nonpartisan think tank and skunkworks' perennial capturing of success towards turnkey solutions (i.e., solving complex problems). Such as it is implemented by Lockheed Martin Corporation, Boeing, GE, and other private enterprises around and beyond the Industrial Military Complex. Agostini is a consultant to think tanks, multilaterals, supranationals, as well as to enterprises whose core business is into oil-and-energy, maritime, health-care, insurance, group employee benefits, logistics, transport, and consultancy. Agostini is in no way attempting to be either a seer, or a soothsayer, diviner, or prophet, who can foretell the future. He's committed to learning of early every valuable lessons to more readily adapt to whatever demands. The objective is for novel approaches to solve and overcome ambiguous and paradoxical problems. In managing corporate and operational risks of many diverse natures, one needs not only to identify and recognize hazards but to anticipate them, very early on (and preemptively so, for Life), along with future and advanced disruption potentials (as well as ignored benefits and opportunities). This is instituted in the tradition of rigorous futures studies (never Futurism) coupled with a plethora of other practical disciplines. In the last analysis and very seriously stated, this view here offers a lucrative and a useful pathway and a practical tool that requires from practitioners much better intellectual preparedness when facing systemic volatility, universal uncertainty and ubiquitous change and ambiguity. When and if officially committed with his client and/or customer, Agostini will unveil plausible propensities and trends and tendencies in extensive details. Agostini will only unveil the inter-meshing, the intertwining and the inter-coalescing of the DRIVING FORCES that will shape and re-shape the future and the present / continuum (so-called) in the most unambiguous and methodical way. He will offer also the sequential steps to outsmart every downside and upside via his own "Transformative and Integrative Risk Management" (TAIRM), as defined at http://goo.gl/qd2BH Let it be known outright and well in advance that Transformative and Integrative Risk Management (TAIRM) above takes into great consideration the qualitative analyzes. Nonetheless, its greatest focus and differentiation is dynamically in place through holistic, systemic, systematic QUALITATIVE ANALYZES fluidly. The most important objective within TAIRM is to make things happen the soonest, yet organically, as well as through flexible and resilient approaches. Once you deeply understand the UPSIDES and DOWNSIDES, the application of TAIRM stops attempting to be arcane to be a cross-functional and multidimensional toolkit to amplify the fiscally-sound continuity of your organization (business, NGO, multilateral, or supranational). BY RISK MANAGEMENT, Agostini NEVER means "risk management" as it is understood in the financial systems and or the adjoining sectors. TAIRM mitigates, modulates, and terminates designated RISKS through vast application of instrumental knowledge in order to bring complicated challenges and problems under control, thus unleashing sustainable earnings and differentiated strategic value. Accordingly, the idea is to upgrade and sustain the financials of the entity exposed to such risks. For instance, mere outsourcing or offshoring is by no means, under this methodology, a "risk management" practice. In itself is a step less suboptimal than contra-productive. Andres Agostini argues: "...Risk management is to prevent technological surprise to the wise organization seeking this advice and service, but also to create technological surprise for the enterprise's competitors..." This notion is better understood when the maxim "... strategy is a function of a grander risk management program and not the other way around..." is fully accepted and practiced. Agostini's customers and clients will get his thorough and in-depth description of the DRIVING FORCES and their potential tendencies and trajectories concerning the internal and external environments of their organizations. Clearly, describing the dynamics in rigor is coupled by robust operational plans, given that he concentrates ? in profound consideration ? on the start as it is projected towards the end and the respective milestone completion. To cite an instance and with full support by public and private agencies, "Transformative and Integrative Risk Management" can be used to mitigate, modulate, and terminate a gamut of hazards (including those used by many forms of extremism). The most interesting risks are those covertly entrenched since they offer a greater potential for profit. Yes, yes, yes ? as you see it first and understand it in much more than one way ? you proactively transform said risks into overt fiscally-sound profits. What Agostini doesn't like (included in his intellectual manifesto), literally: "...I'm against fashionable thinking ... I'm against ignorance ... I am against the whole cliche of the moment ... I'm against sloppy, emotional thinking … I am against incomplete, nonlinear thinking..." Read Agostini's intellectual manifesto at http://goo.gl/dxzV0 Agostini is never into intuitiveness though he greatly value insight, foresight, and far-sight, as well as counter seeing! Given that since the 60's science and technology have made the world OVER-EXPONENTIALLY AND TRANS-GEOMETRICALLY NONLINEAR, he perpetually operates in a strong-sense, critico-creative thinking mode, through amplified nuanced discernment and gradation judgment As this is happening now in both marketplace and society at large with the utmost speed and acceleration by an ever-increasing velocity, then in this case the "over-exponentially and trans-geometrically NONLINEAR" mentality must be coupled (a) in pondering and (b) in deed with THE MOST EXTREME COUNTERINTUITIVENESS AND CLEVER SENSE OF URGENCY. Huge comfort before a complexity-mired world subsequently besieged by paradoxes and contradictions (only if the minds are duly prepared for Life) will prove to be greatly fruitful. This comfort is a pervasive asset as a result of the fluid alignment of multiple decisive efforts. As a consultant and management educator, Agostini has worked for companies as diverse as Toyota, Mitsubishi, World Bank, Shell, Statoil, Total, Exxon, Mobil, Citgo, PDVSA, GE, GMAC, UPS, TNT Delivery Express, GTE, Amoco, BP, Abbot Laboratories, World Health Organization, Ernst Young Consulting, SAIC (Science Applications International Corporation), PakMail, Wilpro (Williams Company), Phillips Petroleum Company, Dupont, Conoco, ENI (Italy's petroleum state-owned corporation), Chevron, LDG Management (HCC Benefits). Product of over twenty years of expertise, Agostini articulated some of his thinking and that of others through presentations, papers, and the Futuretronium Book at http://goo.gl/zvSV7 He is also the Publisher and Editor of the "Observatory of the Future" at http://goo.gl/XB68l, designated for those that won't settle for less than the cutting-edge of science and technology.

I operate as an adviser, consultant, strategist, project leader (co-leader), manager, etc. This is instituted in the tradition of a nonpartisan think tanks and skunkworks' perennial capturing of success towards turnkey solutions. (Skunkworks à la Lockheed Martin Corporation, Boeing, GE, and other private enterprises around the Industrial Military Complex). It is to be recalled, once again, that my capital is in its majority intellectual and sometimes relational. ORGANIZATIONS (AND RESPECTIVE EXECUTIVES) I HAVE WORKED WITH (SYNTHESIS)! Toyota, Mitsubishi, World Bank, Shell, Statoil, Total, Exxon, Mobil, Citgo, PDVSA, GE, GMAC, UPS, TNT Delivery Express, GTE, Amoco, BP, Abbot Laboratories, World Health Organization, Ernst Young Consulting, SAIC (Science Applications International Corporation), PakMail, Wilpro (Williams Company), Phillips Petroleum Company, Dupont, Conoco, ENI (Italy's petroleum state-owned corporation), Chevron. I do extensive traveling for business reasons once on a while. Notwithstanding, I'm greatly available over the Web and this portal. Remember that you can contact me this via and/or www.linkedin.com/in/AndresAgostini BRIEFLY ON MY PERSONAL BACKGROUND! I was raised in Latin American within a family of loving and supporting parents through European traditions (northernmost Europe) yet with an increasing, multidimensional, and attentive perspective of canonical landmarks by the U.S., U.K., Germany, and Japan! Thereby, I don't compete with anyone at all but ONLY with myself to fundamentally and systematically solve my own shortcomings. To offer more clarity still, my personality has been widely profiled as INTJ. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/INTJ I honor and will keeping honoring my forefathers and foremothers to the largest extent possible. Any flaw is mine; any advancement of interest was primordially planted by them. My paternal grandfather used to remind his children: "Study and, when grown up, you will neither be the tyrants' toy, nor the passions' servile slave." SHAKESPEARE, THE ULTIMATE OF THE UTMOST! Incidentally, have you met a better and most dynamical "communication system" that the Shakespearean lingua franca? Very much to my gusto, Shakespeare infused 10,000 new terms while NASA 20,000 to this most august language. (Gargantuan Hooray!) GOOGLING ANDY at http://goo.gl/WxZOw THE PHOTOGRAPHIC REFERENCE? at http://goo.gl/YGRBp FUTURE OBSERVATORY at http://future-observatory.blogspot.com/ WILL YOU PLEASE CHECK MY TALKATIVE ROBOT in YouTube at http://3.ly/rvdg HOW TO DEVELOP A DEEP UNDERSTANDING OF THE FUTURES! At http://goo.gl/UHskb ONE QUICK SNAPSHOT OF THE MOST FLUID REALITY EVER IMAGINED! Every industry is gradually transforming into an information industry. Health and medicine is making that transformation now. Most of the economy will be information technology in the 2020s. … This is what's providing economic growth. The non-information technology industries are shrinking. WHY WILL I BE USING THE FIRST PERSON? Answer: Because I feel that scapegoating, this despicable practice, is miserable indeed. I support the wisdom of Jewish scholar and Rabbi Hillel: "If I am not for myself, then who will be for me? And if I am only for myself, than what am I? And if not now, when?" REGARDING THE FUTURES, SEEN AND ACTED UPON WITHOUT INNUENDOS AND THE APPLIED OMNISCIENCE BLISS! The undersigned is in no way attempting to be either a seer, or a soothsayer, diviner, or prophet, who can foretell the future. In managing corporate and operational risks of many diverse natures, one needs not only to identify and recognize hazards but to anticipate them, very early on (and preemptively so for Life), future and advanced disruption potential (as well as ignored benefits and opportunities), doing so in the tradition of rigorous futures studies (never Futurism) coupled with a plethora of other disciplines. In the last analysis and very seriously stated, this view here offers a lucrative and a useful learning and a practical tool that requires from practitioners much better preparedness before systemic volatility, universal uncertainty and ubiquitous change and ambiguity. When and if officially committed with my client and/or customer, I will not unveil trends or tendency. I will only unveil the inter-meshing, the intertwining and the inter-coalescing of the DRIVING FORCES that will shape and re-shape the future and the present / continuum (so-called) in the most unambiguous way. I will offer also the methodical steps to outsmart every downside and upside! "Transformative and Integrative Risk Management" (way beyond approaches by insurance and reinsurance companies) I define at http://slidesha.re/Transmane My customers and clients will get my detailed and thorough description of the DRIVING FORCES and their potential tendencies and trajectories concerning the internal and external environments of their organizations. To cite an instance and with full support by public and private agencies, "Transformative and Integrative Risk Management" can be used to mitigate, modulate, and terminate a gamut of hazards (including those used by many forms of extremism). The most interesting risks are those covertly entrenched since they offer a greater potential for profit. Yes, yes, yes -- as you see it first and understand it in more than one way -- you proactively transform said risks into overt fiscally-sound profits (continuously to Life). QUANTITATIVE ANALYZES VS. QUALITATIVE ANALYZES? Let it be known outright and well in advance that Transformative and Integrative Risk Management (TAIRM) above ( http://slidesha.re/Transmane ) takes into great consideration the qualitative analyzes. Nonetheless, its greatest focus and differentiation is dynamically in place through holistic, systemic, systematic QUALITATIVE ANALYZES. The most important objective within TAIRM is to make things happen the soonest, yet organically, as well as stoically, flexibly, and resiliently. Once you deeply understand the UPSIDES and DOWNSIDES, the application of TAIRM stops attempting to be arcane to be a multi-tool to amplify the fiscally-sound continuity of your organization (business, NGO or supranational). BY RISK MANAGEMENT, I do NOT mean "risk management" as it is understood in the financial systems and or the adjoining sectors. TAIRM mitigates, modulates, and terminates designated RISKS through vast application of knowledge. Accordingly, the idea is to upgrade and sustain the financials of the entity exposed to such risks. For instance, juts outsourcing or offshoring is never, under this methodology, a "risk management" practice. By Andres Agostini: "Risk management is to prevent technological surprise to the wise enterprise seeking this advice and service, but also to create technological surprise for the enterprise's competitors." http://3.ly/rECc CONCERNING KNOWLEDGE! I have perennial fun identifying my own areas of ignorance to correct them the soonest. There Andy becomes extremely competitive in making Drew (myself) marshal any necessary step to correct my own areas of ignorance. Ultimately, I am (in excelsis) Hellenistic, Victorian, and Prussian. I seen eminent scientists challenge me and then crying when they see me (i) correcting my shortcomings and (ii) coming up (in earnest) with novel and exotic approaches that said eminent scientists deemed, as per them, above and beyond their IQs. I am not interested in making either comfortable or uncomfortable anyone (as I am not particularly interested in just gaining visibility), though I conduct my self with utmost civility, kindness and yet clarity. Some of these thoughtful, respected and valued gentlemen (with their eyes mired by tears) IN GOOD FAITH and SEEKING GREATER PRODUCTIVITY and ESPECIALLY BREAKTHROUGHS. Above scientists are used to employing some of these notions and / or questions: (a) Andy, Is this your best?, (b) Will you please research thoroughly this problem?, (c) Remember to apply to this issue the greatest amount of practical knowledge (towards applied omniscience)!, (d) Have a nice weekend and please get some rest!, (e) Andy, What did you learn this past weekend?, (f) "…Think big … aim high … observe the granularity of details … the limits are beyond the skies …. seek for breakthroughs in ignored flanks …Challenge yourself…:" I love said questions and notions because they're engaged (through deeds) in the great, "lightspeed locomotive" Socratic method. Some years ago I heard an extraordinary slogan, "…the mind is a terrible thing to waste…" I fundamentally share this great notion with everyone. Everybody is smart, clever, intelligent, valuable, talented, and so on. Hence, I value every person as I deemed indispensable every profession or occupation. WHAT I DON'T LIKE (INCLUDED IN MY INTELLECTUAL MANIFESTO): "I'm against fashionable thinking ... I'm against ignorance ... I am against the whole cliché of the moment ... I'm against sloppy, emotional thinking…I am against incomplete, nonlinear thinking." Read my intellectual manifesto at http://goo.gl/dxzV0 I AM NEVER INTO INTUITIVENESS THOUGH I GREATLY VALUE INSIGHT, FORESIGHT, AND FAR-SIGHT! For a long time but especially since the 60' science and technology have made the world OVER-EXPONENTIALLY AND TRANS-GEOMETRICALLY NONLINEAR. As this is happening now with the utmost speed and acceleration by an ever-increasing velocity, in this case the "over-exponentially and trans-geometrically NONLINEAR" mentality must be coupled with THE MOST EXTREME COUNTERINTUITIVENESS. Huge comfort before a world besieged by paradoxes and contradictions (if the minds are duly prepared for Life) will prove to be greatly fruitful. By the way, I don't consider myself smart. I just consider that I consistently and increasingly practice: (a) Perseveration, (b) Thoroughness, (c) British / Swiss Timeliness. Turned into listened-up mode, I will pay the supreme undivided attention. To understand customers and clients, I do ask zillion questions. Also, in order to over-execute and keep clarity shedding enlightenment, I don't communicate; I just over-communicate. Questions by the customers and clients will get my reply, both verbally and especially in writing. In dealing with great complexities with the strategic end to offset into earnings and wealth VERBAL COMMUNICATION is anecdotal and ergo inconsequential for the formal process. Among others some of my interest is to disseminate some ideas under the quality of P.O.V. and not as if they were sacrosanct maxims, dogma, doctrine or ideology. I am worried about every form of violence and injustice. Stated succinctly, I am 150% for democracy, rule of law and TRUE justice! I am interested in the DRIVING FORCE circumnavigating Artificial Intelligence (AI). WHY? Because it is shaping and re-shaping our lives. However, I'm extremely MORE interested in biological modes of what I call "mind expansion" and some others call "Intelligence Augmentation" or "Intelligence Amplification" (IA). MY WORKING CAPITAL! I operate through intellectual capital. Most of the times ? especially when articulating a solution to a complex problem even while at an advising capacity ? will ascertain the implementation of said solution through completion. This, without a fail, applies for initiatives of (i) for-profit, (ii) not-for-profit, (iii) governmental, (iv) supranational, as well as any other individuals or entities. Mr. Andres Agostini is — first and foremost — a Global Independent Professional Consulting Services Contractor, as well as a Member of the Advisory Board of ACC Group Worldwide (New York, Miami, London). He is also Executive Associate for Global Markets at Omega Systems Group Incorporated (Arlington, Virginia, USA). He has 30 years of applied, professional/empirical experience. He has two majors on insurance management in the U.S. took "Mechanical Engineering Technology" in Dawson College (Montreal, Canada), as well as Linguistics courses in Queen's University and Saint Lawrence College (both at Kingston, Ontario, Canada). He took "Mechanical Engineering" in Universidad Metropolitana, Caracas, Venezuela. MY MOST THOROUGH PROFESSIONAL PROFILE at http://3.ly/FdrG Through his professional life and beyond upper education, he became engaged in being trained and indoctrinated by the most prominent minds and global organizations, out of the U.S. and the U.K. into: (a) Management, (b) Risk Management, (c) Group Employee Benefits, (d) Insurance, (e) Reinsurance and many other subject matter dealing with transformation of: (1) Organizations, (2) Management, (3) Leadership, (4) Business, (5) Scenario Method (beyond the three-scenario mode), (6) Systems Methodologies, (7) Systems Safety, (8) Systems Security, (9) Systems Reliability, and (10) Professional Futurology. Beyond implementation of methodologies such as Total Quality Assurance, Kaisen (including the Toyota Production System «TPS»), Lean Manufacturing, Six Sigma, LeanSigma, Reliability Engineering (as it is jointly understood and utilized by Procter and Gable and Los Alamos National Laboratories) and other Multidimensional approaches, he is the founder and sole proprietor of the methodology "TRANSFORMATIVE AND INTEGRATIVE RISK MANAGEMENT," based on Systems Methodology and with the applied omniscience perspective, designed by Andres Agostini in 2005. (http://bit.ly/Transformative_and_Integrative_Risk_Management ) Mr. Agostini is passionate about (a) the FUTURE, (b) Applied Omniscience Activist, (c) Not "insurance-based" Transformative and Integrative Risk Management, (d) Mind Expansionist Practitioner. I enjoy teaching a great deal! AN IDEA WORTH SPREADING AS PER MR. AGOSTINI! We can all attempt the best to tackle so many global crises. Those concern me. However, there is one global crisis that TAKES PRECEDENT AND TUTELAGE FROM ANY OTHER CRISIS. HE'S REFERRING TO THE EXTREMELY GRAVE AND UNIVERSAL, EXISTENTIAL RISK CONCERNING SYSTEMATIC VIOLATIONS AGAINST MORALITY, PRINCIPLES, VALUES, AND ETHICS. He's given you — as he perceives it — a profound womb-to-tomb reflections for a number of years. In the mean time, disruption potential and its corresponding vulnerabilities are staggeringly compounding into an immeasurable defiance to Earth in its totality. Ethics AND serious rule of law AND true justice AND zero calamities equal to some viable chances as we grasp the convergence of technologies with the applied omniscience perspective. In fact, with a "tsunami" of new knowledge (and subsequently an epic flood of obsoledge) and novel skills we might have a change of prosperity. We must all remember that all "PROBLEMS" are because of ignorance, especially that ignorance deployed by those supposed to have empowered minds that in actuality worship their preferred path: own supine ignorance in extremis! TALK TO HIM ABOUT! We must embrace (i) science and technology, (ii) unconventional thinking in excelsis, (iii) morality and ethics, (iv) civics, justice, and rigorous law ruling, as well as compassion, humanity and really enforced harmony and peace. "PEOPLE DON'T KNOW THAT I'M GOOD AT," AS THIS QUESTION WAS ORIGINALLY REFERRED TO ME AT! People don't know that he's particularly good at — with the applied omniscience perspective and systems methodology — seeing and conceiving and developing existential problems/fixes way in advance and decisively, and solving awfully complex difficulties that require maximum precision. A STORY TO SHARE! He's had and still have the pleasure to be hired by customers and operate with partners before the most daring and pressing situations. Fortunately, educated in the USA, Canada, and Great Britain in academia and chiefly in profession. He has a unique way of seeing problems and their solving. Luckily and to his advantage, he has worked in many tenures and for a whole array of disparate industries. Subsequently, he feels quite comfortable in dealing with a gamut of business issues, including some undertaken by some supranational organizations as the World Bank and special agencies like or related to or aspiring to instituting best practices by NASA. He is always ready to take on an even more stringent challenge every time. He never advises to make crises wait when there is so much learning to capture in solving said crises. He doesn't only do a great deal of researching, experimenting/testing. But he, too, does huge studying and studying present "evidence falsifying" (a là Sir Karl Popper) to walk several steps forward towards the optimum omniscience repository applicable by him and via others. He can go from huge structuralism to highly amorphous and a combination (de-structuralism) of those two without losing consistency, congruency, sense of direction, ambient/environment awareness and efficacy. He has addressed major advisory services to top executives from Fortune-1000 corporations. Some of its clients include, World Bank, GE, GMAC, Toyota, Mitsubishi, and Abbot Laboratories.

Universal ignorance of supine ignorance begets most ruthless and subtle Strong Artificial Intelligence ("Artificial General Intelligence"), thereby getting explosively lavishly and ubiquitously: self-upgrading, self-improving, self-replicating robots and hence transbiologicals. Humans make their machines. Then we design and develop such sophisticated hardware to the extent that we feel very overwhelmed. Besieged by global complexities and complications, we monolithically and irreversibly merged all our biology with our machines. Welcome to the kingdom of transbiologicals. Grave underestimation of hard science and impious overestimation of social science beget most ruthless and subtle Strong Artificial Intelligence ("General Intelligent Action"), thereby getting explosively lavishly and ubiquitously: self-upgrading, self-improving, self-replicating robots and hence transbiologicals.
