Genius is the ability
of a group working iteratively and collaboratively to seek,
model and put into place higher-order solutions. Time compression,
systemic workflow, dynamic feedback, individual creativity
and collective creativity are core features of group genius.
Group Genius process is the heart of MG Taylor's methodology.
Designing, building, and using environments, processes, and
tools that systematically and repeatedly release this ability
critically distinguishes the MG Taylor® Process from other
ways of working.
MG Taylor® System & Method
LLC, the research and intellectual property business
unit of the MG Taylor ValueWeb, has a patent in
pending related to 6 subsystems of the system
and method. This patent involves several levels
of language and a process-architecture based on
iteration, recursion and feedback of agents acting
in an environment of agents. The patent involves
a language that describes and operates the processes
and is, itself, in patent pending.
Taylor is persuing a comprehensive, aggressive
strategy in regards to intellectual property law
and business practice. In the area of the patents,
it is pushing the state-of-the-art. The purpose
it not to attempt exclusive use or dominance over
some future section of the knowledge-economy.
The purpose is to establish a way to steward a
body of ideas into useful products and services
while legally protecting the ValueWeb (and its
members) that invests, develops and employs them.
At present, the patent is unopposed after initial
review and it is expected that certain aspects
of it will be issued within the coming year.
addition to this high level patent, a number of
functional patents on specific aspects of our
work are under way. Also, a number of design patents
have been filed. Most of this is being done at
the business unit
level of the enterprise.
