There are almost 200 countries in the world. All except a dozen are members of the United Nations. This fact, globalization, and other similar facts basically make our species a single organization. Onboarding is the mechanism through which new members of an organization “acquire the necessary knowledge, skills, and behaviors to become effective organizational insiders”. When the organization is our humanity as a whole, what is its onboarding process?
PROBLEM STATEMENT: Our humanity as an organization does not have an onboarding process for its new members.
THESIS STATEMENT: Although many will object, we need to have an absolute minimum common background for almost everyone in our global village. This makes it easier for many from various corners of the world to become effective sooner in their collaborative activities.
Onboarding for humanity can be codified as soon as we succeed in the depiction of an absolute minimum common background for everyone.
Even within the same country, the alternative is for many to simply give up in collaboration. This is partially expressed by the divorce rate of 70% in Belgium, a highly-developed nation.
An onboarding process for humanity based on an absolute minimum common background for everyone will reduce any and all personal and interpersonal conflicts and thereby increase all types of collaboration.
