CEBOT's Common Governance Framework

Conceptualizing governance in a principal–agent framework

Ensuring risk mitigation by recognizing agency dilemma and building processes to prevent or reduce moral hazard or agent conflict of interest.

Embracing the need for  bureaucracy in complex, monetary based systems, while consistently applying innovation to break the "iron cage" bond of the status quo, challenging the need for efficiency with the transformative principles born from effectiveness, to ensure ecosystem excellence.

Finding our Way to Change

Change inside of bureaucracy requires complex thinking that includes stakeholder agendas, process requirements, and an investigation of technology resource demands and deficiencies.

Change Management starts with the recognition that something is broken or misaligned, coupled with the courage to embark on a "solutions based" organization-centric discourse.

Change is difficult and the road to change requires trust and capacity.

The Council Exchange Board of Trade (CEBOT) represents over 65,000 U.S. minority technology employers whose combined revenues total over $100 Billion.  This powerhouse of trusted providers are ready to empower change.  Our Design Based Research methodologies allows for a consistent approach to engagement and process.

Engage, Explore, Empower

"The winning combination between buracracy and autonomy in our 21st Century economy requires trust and equity.  Partnerships that are forged with an awareness of the complexity of change will ensure what we at NMTC call Common Governance"

Karl Cureton, CEBOT Chairman, CEO

"Government's ability to make and enforce rules, and to deliver services is supported every day by Industry.  Understanding relative performance is central to good  governance and NMTC's partnership model allows for an impartial bias focused on the importance of public and private economic gain."

Lorne O. Joseph II, CEBOT Chief Risk Officer & Senior Fellow

Unlocking the Human Potential to Serve

The Council Exchange Board of Trade recognizes the importance of government and the effective and efficient administration of entitlements.  CEBOT also recognize that industry has a critical role in building economy.  

By combining forces through instruments like Cooperative Agreements, Memorandum of Understandings, or other uniting Public/Private partnership models that combined our joint resources, CEBOT will help solve the world's most complex and hardest to solve challenges. 

65,000 Minority Technology Companies

The Council Exchange Board of Trade (CEBOT) brings a rich history of advocacy and procurement policy guidance within the federal policy ecosystem.  The $100 Billion Minority Technology Industry is a source of jobs to over 500,000 professionals both in the United States and abroad.  CEBOT  brings applied research & development to growth algorithms that catalyze regional innovation ecosystems, stimulating economic development and uplifting minority business and community.  CEBOT leadership and Senior Fellows bring new capabilities, investment and research capacity to the minority technology industry and to the stakeholders they serve.




Engagement requires value and produces consensus when process is key.  Governance gives rise to planned growth both individually and throughout the ecosystem.

Growth rises when not stifled by moral hazard.   CEBOT algorithms facilitate a deliberate system of principles to guide decisions and achieve rational outcomes.

Innovation liberates possibilities, improves systems and can transform bureaucracies into managed serviced/resource based functions.
