Business Models I Developed:

  1. Systemic Solutions for Complex Problems (SSX):
    This model is centered around the application of advanced Systems Thinking methodology to tackle complex problems. It involves comprehending the relationships and interactions among various components within the system, as well as understanding system behaviors. Through the SSX model, systemic root causes are identified, going beyond the direct root causes provided by the traditional Root Cause Analysis (RCA) used in larger organizations. This enables the formulation of effective and sustainable systemic solutions for complex problems.
  2. Systemic Leader – Quadruple Tracks Leadership Model (QTL):
    The Systemic Leader model aims to empower leaders to achieve excellence in the field of leadership by applying advanced systemic thinking methodologies. It revolves around four key dimensions: system behaviors, human behaviors, ethical principles, and excellence. The systemic leader acquires skills in systemic thinking, understands complex challenges, encourages the team, fosters ethical practices, and sets and monitors goals for continuous improvement.
  3. Capabilities-based Small Businesses (CBSB):
    CBSB is a unique model that focuses on the pre-idea stage, where business ideas are generated based on the analysis of current capabilities for entrepreneurs and businesses. By evaluating the existing strengths and resources of an entrepreneur or a small business, CBSB enables the identification of potential business opportunities that align with their core competencies. This approach helps in creating viable and sustainable business ideas with a higher likelihood of success.

These models represent the essence of my research and expertise in the field of leadership, problem-solving, and organizational development.

With over 32 years of experience, I have honed my leadership skills and gained a deep understanding of organizational dynamics and strategic decision-making.

Systemic Solutions for Complex Problems (SSX)

SSX is an innovative business model I developed to tackle complex problems that organizations face. It is based on the principles of systems thinking, which involves understanding how individual components within a system interact with each other and how the system as a whole behaves.

With SSX, I help organizations analyze complex issues from a holistic perspective, taking into account various interdependencies and feedback loops. This approach allows for the identification of underlying root causes and the formulation of effective, sustainable solutions.

Key features of SSX include:

  • Identifying and addressing system-wide leverage points to create significant positive change.
  • Applying advanced problem-solving techniques, such as causal loop diagrams and stock-and-flow models, to gain insights into complex dynamics.
  • Engaging stakeholders from diverse backgrounds to gain a comprehensive understanding of the problem and its implications.
  • Designing and implementing interventions that consider both short-term and long-term consequences.

SSX has been successfully applied in various industries, including oil and gas, petrochemicals, water, education, and healthcare. By using SSX, organizations can overcome challenges that traditional linear approaches often fail to address effectively.

Systemic Leadership with Quadruple Tracks Leadership Model (QTL)

The Quadruple Tracks Leadership Model (QTL) is a powerful framework that empowers leaders to excel in their roles. Developed by Mohammad Albuzaid, a seasoned Leadership and Organizational Performance Improvement Consultant from Saudi Arabia, QTL revolves around four dimensions: Systems Behavior, Human Behavior, Work Ethics, and Excellence.

As a systemic leader, you’ll master systems thinking, understand complex problems, and design effective solutions. You’ll empathize with others, communicate persuasively, and empower your team. Integrity and professionalism will guide your work ethics, fostering a positive environment. Furthermore, you’ll continuously strive for excellence, setting SMART goals, monitoring performance, and implementing improvements.

Through the QTL, you’ll elevate your leadership capabilities, achieve your goals, and make a lasting impact in your organization.
