Systema: Business Motivation

I have been reading the material produced by the Business Rules Group and it pains me to see the lack of grounding these people have. They have created a mess of explicit relationships that don’t have any implicit relevance. They do not recognize in the least what actually motivates an organization.

Let me call up one of my most recent Six Hats, Six Coats tables:

If you look at the CAUSE column you will see the six levels of motivation for a system. And we all know that an organization is a system.So let’s define each of these motivations from the top down:

  1. Reality – to make its internal conscience complement its customer’s conscience
  2. Unity – to make its internal governance complement its customer’s governance
  3. Quality – to make its internal profession complement its customer’s profession
  4. Quantity – to make its internal education complement its customer’s education
  5. Security – to make its internal estate complement its customer’s estate
  6. Regularity – to make its internal cycles complement its customer’s cycles

That is it. Those are all the business rules you need.

Systema: Seven Revolutions…or is it Six?

Came across the Seven Revolutions website and explored it to conclude that they want us to think about the six interrogatives globally over the next 20 years. That’s what I said, six not seven. Their classification system is incorrect. However, do not let this stop you from exploring the site. It is worth the effort.

So ask yourself, how will the following change over the next 20 years:

  1. Existence – Light, Air, Water, Food, Climate, Sensation
  2. Estate – Security, Property, Shelter, Mobility, Perception
  3. Education – Communication, Assembly, Speech, Media, Data
  4. Employment – Professions, Trades, Processes, Methods, Information
  5. Governance – Leadership, Followership, Relationships, Knowledge
  6. Conscience – Religion, Philosophy, Moral Law, Cause, Wisdom
