I am having a difficult time deciding how to take this sentence out of a passive voice. Thanks for the help!
Widgets Unlimited is poised to be a huge success in the 21st century and beyond!

I agree with Sandy that the sentence is fine as is. And I don't think poised is a passive participle here; it's an adjective, is it not? Nobody poised the company; it is simply poised, in the sense of being in a position to be a huge success. The adjective poised is one of those adjectives that can be followed by to + an infinitive verb.
