· "problem-solving ability

· Technology understanding
· Comfort with ambiguity"
· https://www.thecareermuse.co.in/future-hr-2020-onwards/
· CrowdDoing Human Resources Business Partners can deploy their problem-solving ability, develop and apply systems thinking skills, gain greater technical understanding and navigate ambiguity with comfort as skills that are learnable through their roles with CrowdDoing.

According to Barry Lawrence, HRCI Staff Writer, who wrote in his Human Resources Certification Institute’s Blog an article called, The Future of HR Competencies on Jun 14, 2016, there are six competencies that individuals will need to develop to be prepared for the future in HR. Five of the six can be developed through volunteering with CrowdDoing’s Human Resources Team:

Become strategic advisors who can articulate what’s necessary to properly execute a given strategy. Have the qualities of both cultural stewards and credible activists to achieve business outcomes. Embrace data analyst capabilities to help companies know where to invest and divest in terms of human capital.
Be talent development facilitators and weave talent development responsibilities throughout the organization. Cultivate a more innovative culture with divergent thinking and the testing of new ideas."

CrowdDoing is developing a new approach to reduce wildfire risk and prevent damage, while simultaneously regenerating nature and improving quality of life. This approach combines new analytic methods, data, financial tools, and collaboration.

The approach will be explored in-depth during a month-long hackathon which will culminate in a series of virtual events including a panel of senior risk executives, mentor-led break-outs, and awards to contributors.

Uncover how liabilities of inaction can be used to finance cover cost of prevention and adaptation for wildfires and beyond

Session goals include:

1. Demonstrate the acute need for proactive wildfire risk prevention in contrast to a traditional reactive approach

2. Advance a risk prevention strategy through improving the understanding of the concept of shared value wildfire prevention. This approach can leverage self-interest to scale a risk prevention strategy.

3. Connect the preventability of wildfire risks with subject matter experts with deep knowledge of the stakeholders who could share the risks and benefits of preventive, regenerative risk reduction strategies

4. Facilitate collaboration to make financeable wildfire prevention which can be effectively deployed to serve the financial needs of all stakeholders.

5. Provide service learning for all participants

6. Build Bridges between the cost-benefits analysis sector, the social innovation sector, and the insurance/reinsurance sector

7. Establish how the cost of inaction can be guaranteed against and used as a means to finance the opportunity for action to prevent risks, starting with wildfires

This is a "reverse" hackathon; rather than competing against one another, teams will focus on optimal collaboration to achieve SDG’s (Sustainable Development Goals). Our goal will be to allow stakeholders who benefit from wildfire prevention to understand the potential benefits and contract for risk prevention via collaboration.

Peter Diamandis noted the following on November 12th 2020 among the trends of the next decade: "The insurance industry transforms from 'recovery after risk’ to 'prevention of risk .’" Our "prevention derivatives" thesis is that anchor stakeholders at risk could demonstrably identify their self-interest in

preventing the air pollution and other damage caused by wildfires. CrowdDoing.world is working to accelerate that transformation via "prevention derivatives". Stakeholders share liabilities. Catastrophes cause harm to insurers, reinsurers, Insurance-linked-security holders, corporations, individuals, and whole regions. If we can prevent these risks cost effectively through social innovation, that is a collective opportunity. We plan to propose workshops, panel discussions and keynote presentations on our theme of "How do we address the global cooperation gap in risk prevention?" For example, preventing wildfires can be reduce risk for multiple types of stakeholders if combinations of social innovations getting financed and adopted. The idea of Prevention Derivatives is driven by the thesis that there is an under-valuation of passive risk (or the cost of inaction) and an under-prioritization of positive risk. Correspondingly for wildfires as an example, there is an under-recognition of the potential shared value upside of preventative action through social innovation and social interventions (such as goats & sheep that prevent wildfires). The aim of CrowdDoing.world is to guarantee positive risk through leveraging existing liabilities to allow for the implications of prescriptive analytics to be financed. The under-pricing of passive risk means that liabilities are treated as either costs of doing business or unpredictable risks even in the case of entirely preventable risks. Risk management offices have been too biased towards avoiding taking the wrong risks rather than ensuring that institutions make their own luck by seizing the abundant positive risk opportunities that social innovation can produce. Meanwhile, the bias against valuing positive risk prevents social innovations from getting adopted even if there would be remarkable benefits to all stakeholders through their adoption.



The only way CrowdDoing.world can realize its impact potential is through virtual volunteers,service learners(http://blog.reframeit.com/service-learning-and-skilled-volunteering/), and micro-leaders (https://real-leaders.com/leveraging-micro-leadership-to-make-aspirational-goals-achievable/) coming together.


See this brief video aboutMicro-leadership at CrowdDoing (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhdB2YJ8Ocs&app=desktop). Micro-leadership means that each person adopts a dimension of responsibility for a collective problem in our society through collaborating on that area creatively individually and together through social innovation.
