WHO WE ARE

THE IDEA FOR THE ARCHIMEDES LEVER PROJECT STARTED IN 2002 IN JAPAN AND GRADUALLY SPREAD ACROSS OTHER CULTURES AND LANGUAGES UNTIL FINALLY EVOLVED AS the PIT METHOD.

ARCHIMEDES LEVER IS A BELIEF SYSTEM WHERE EACH MEMBER OF A GROUP HAS UNIQUE ATTRIBUTES AND PERSPECTIVE TO CONTRIBUTE WITHOUT WHICH OUR PERCEPTION IS IMPAIRED AND OUR DECISIONS ARE BASED ON FLAWED JUDGEMENT.

THIS MEANS THAT WITHIN EACH MEMBER EXISTS AN ARCHIMEDES LEVER THAT CAN MAKE SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE GROUP - IF WE WERE SOMEHOW ABLE TO HARNESS THEM TO THE BENEFIT OF THE GROUP.

THE COVID19 PANDEMIC ACCELERATED THE NEED FOR the PIT METHOD ALTHOUGH IT WAS FIRST USED OVER 10 YEARS AGO. FIRST, the PIT WAS USED IN MANAGEMENT SESSIONS WHERE THE ONLY RULE (RULE #1) WAS THAT EVERYONE IN THE MEETING IS EQUAL. THIS RULE CREATED THE NEED TO EDUCATE LEADERS ON  "SERVANT LEADERSHIP" AND "FUNCTIONAL LEADERSHIP". WHEN MULTIPLE USERS FROM VARIOUS DISCIPLINES WERE HOSTED IN VIRTUAL MEETINGS ADDITIONAL RULES HAD TO BE TESTED AND APPLIED. THE SECOND RULE (RULE #2) THAT FOLLOWED WAS THAT ALL USERS IN A MEETING WERE REQUIRED TO ACTIVELY ENGAGE IN THE MEETING. RULE #2 CREATED A HOST OF PROBLEMS THAT NEEDED TO BE ADDRESSED. FIRST AMONG THEM WAS HOW TO ENCOURAGE POSITIVE INCLUSION IN A MULTI CULTURAL AND MULTI DISCIPLINE ENVIRONMENT.
