Effective organizations need effective core groups, and in federated
organizations, where there are dozens more core groups, there
is a chance for far greater effectiveness. There are other benevolent
effects: far more people get an opportunity to be at the center
of an organization. To be sure, there are risks; an inexperienced
or poorly prepared core group member can have devastating effect
on an organization.
But in a federated organization, where attention is paid
to developing and cultivating the awareness of core group
members, the risks are mitigated by the sheer diversity of
opportunity. There are more chances for core group members
to be great, and few chances for a self-indulgent core group
to overwhelm the system.
“The practice of Core Group Theory is the gateway to
thought leadership that is guiding today’s emotionally
intelligent leaders to learn and practice."

- Social Network Architect
Karen Stephenson as a maverick with a talent for attracting
and codifying organizational knowledge and identifying how
people organize and link their work practices to codify corporate
assets. Karen is a faculty member of Harvard School of Design
and anthropologist, she has organized a systemic approach
to capturing and tracking patterns of work and identifying
who is contributing and how to form intangible and tangible
assets that codify a company’s knowledge base.
Karen’s consultation, analysis and KnowledgeBanking
provide the knowledge to Core Groups on how their mission
translates and works in social networks of people (employees,
outsources, consultants) carrying out the company mission.
When the Core Group does not have that mission, the Core Group
can learn from Karen’s approach and method why assets
are being codified and what and who is building these assets
without a clear mission or conscious leadership.

An accountant and academic researcher based at the Stern School
of Management at NYU. Over 20 years ago, Lev identified that
the basic practice of accounting was systemically undermining
the profitability and growth of a business.

tracks intangible and tangible assets. By creating this new
frontier in accounting practice, Lev advises the Securities
and Exchange Commission, the Financial Accounting Standards
Board, OECD, the European Union, and the Brookings Institution.
Lev is an expert witness giving testimony to the US Senate
Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs
What is unique about his curricula vita is that he is teaching
accountants and experts who set the trends in asset management
through actual legislation, certified methodology. While he
consults, his focus is on teaching and publishing academic
papers that are pushing for a new thought leadership rather
than devising as system of IP for consulting.
Lev understood before anyone the value of knowledge management
and began to define the basis for thinking about the value
of intellectual property. Lev’s codification is the
foundation for any system of metrics for intelligent Core
