Subject:   Communication Metrics
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Report March 28, 1997


  1. Welch letter Sep 3, 1996
  2. Intel letter Aug 15, 1996
  3. Welch proposal Apr 23, 1996

Dear Dave,

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recently evaluated the management science supported by SDS, called Communication Metrics. General Hatch reports this method adds intelligence to information and this adds value to people and organizations. The report is based on a study the government did using Communication Metrics in the manner I proposed to Intel on April 23, 1996, ref c.

These results show technology can support leadership and management along the lines we discussed for Asilomar, and so may warrant further review by Intel (you were concerned about the effectiveness of Communication Metrics). The report is fairly lengthy, but has a good Executive Summary and an Evaluation section that does not take long to review. If you would like a copy, please let me know.
