371401 - Follow up ref SDS 97 0000, ref SDS 96 0000.
371403 - DOD expanding work load increases demand for SDS, ref SDS 0 TX5K, that
371404 - enables a better way of working to save time and money. ref SDS 0 N49N
371405 - Better management is essential because information overload is
371406 - expanding the complexity of daily work. ref SDS 0 Y66I The FSR role
371407 - can be expanded to provide Communication Metrics support so that
371408 - people benefit from adding "intelligence" to daily work without having
371409 - to immediately learn a new way of working. ref SDS 0 P74N Stuart
371410 - cited advantage of intellectual bridge concepts that help people grasp
371411 - opportunity for using SDS. ref SDS 0 LC5O Leadership is critical to
371412 - help people cross the bridge to a new way of working, overcoming
371413 - desire to work on familiar things in familiar ways, commonly called
371414 - laziness, which is enabled by traditions of relying on personal memory
371415 - and spontaneous, stream-of-conscious analysis in meetings, calls and
371416 - email that make communication the biggest risk in enterprise.

371826 - ..
371827 - Despite loss of confidence in KM, limitations of human mental biology
371828 - require improving management to handle expanding complexity due to
371829 - information overload, cited by Peter Drucker in the record on 931130.
371830 - ref SDS 9 TP7F and ref SDS 10 2855 Drucker says people have given up
371831 - trying to improve communication because the job is too difficult.
371832 - ref SDS 9 3851 Better communication requires better analysis, which
371833 - Drucker says is a manager's primary task. ref SDS 9 7911 Landauer

701306 - Follow up ref SDS 97 ZR5G, ref SDS 96 ZR5G.
701308 - On 010724 Stuart planned a review of POIMS and the SDS Typical Day
701309 - Scenario for correlations with DCMA objectives on improving the work,
701310 - which is principally contract management. ref SDS 97 0001
701312 - ..
701313 - Today, we discussed key issues to consider.
701315 - ..
701316 - Knowledge Management (KM) is hard for command to engage, as Stuart
701317 - reports today, ref SDS 0 2N5K, because conflicting definitions and
701318 - implementations conceal the power of technology to save time and money
701319 - by improving management, cited in POIMS. ref OF 1 EX5O Pat Lincoln at
701320 - SRI pointed out on 010426 that DARPA and other agencies have given up
701321 - on KM. Nobody has defined KM beyond banalities like "collaboration,"
701322 - and nobody has come up with tools and practices, because, as Peter
701323 - Drucker notes, the task is too complex, so people have given up trying
701324 - to improve communication, reviewed on 931130. ref SDS 9 3851
701326 - ..
701327 - Failure over 30-plus years seeking technology that improves management
701328 - makes people disillusioned and discouraged, as Stuart reported on
701329 - 010712. ref SDS 94 ZR5G As a result, the only challenge is enabling
701330 - decision makers to experience technology that meaningfully improves
701331 - management, in order to overcome years of frustration.
701333 - ..
701334 - SDS records on the Internet demonstrates better performance that
701335 - provides a working definition and case study showing that Knowledge
701336 - Management can in fact be implemented, as Stuart reported in his
701337 - letter on 010608, ref SDS 86 RS4J, and as evident in this record.
701339 - ..
701340 - POIMS explains KM theory that makes SDS effective for saving time and
701341 - money. ref OF 1 079L SDS was recently endorsed by DNRC in a new
701342 - report on 010725. ref SDS 98 WJ7L Pat Lincoln commented on 010111
701343 - that experience using SDS at SRI shows SDS improves management.
701344 - ref SDS 81 3X4I
701346 - ..
701347 - Stuart mentioned having seen KM explained as an "automated engine" to
701348 - process a lot of email for determining work practices and beliefs of
701349 - people. POIMS explains why attempts to improve email with KM have
701350 - failed. ref OF 1 CZ6K SDS demonstrates a solution that makes email
701351 - effective for saving time and money.
701353 - ..
701354 - "Automated engine" is an artificial intelligence model along the lines
701355 - Jack Park discussed in letters on....
701357 - 000623 engine maps topics.................. ref SDS 72 2915
701358 - 001025 construct useful views.............. ref SDS 77 LR6N
701359 - 001130 none of this exists................. ref SDS 78 MN3W
701360 - 010223 mining threads...................... ref SDS 82 3RKS
701361 - 010223 it is not easy to create............ ref SDS 82 N5RW
701363 - ..
701364 - This view of KM is incorrect. It reflects hope that technology can
701365 - make bad management using information from spontaneous, reactive,
701366 - cursory work, like email, cell phones and conversation successful,
701367 - without adding intelligence that converts information into useful
701368 - knowledge, as explained in POIMS. ref OF 1 6649 On 000920 analysis
701369 - shows SDS makes good management easier, and that nothing can make bad
701370 - management succeed. ref SDS 74 T33H
701372 - ..
701373 - KM can only save time and money by stepping beyond the limits of IT to
701374 - a culture of knowledge enabled by SDS, see NWO... ref OF 3 156O

910505 - KS5O, shows SDS enables a whole new way of working using computers to
910506 - aid daily management, similar to the way CAD software aids
910507 - engineering. Technology that helps people think, remember and
910508 - communicate, as explained in POIMS, ref OF 1 3742, is a new way of
910509 - working, noted in the letter today to Stuart. ref DIT 1 IH6F
910511 - ..
910512 - Stuart's assessment that SDS enables a new way of working for
910513 - capturing, organizing and adding value to organizational memory,
910514 - aligns with a recent report on 010725 that SDS supports consistent
910515 - use of good management practice. ref SDS 98 WJ7L

980502 - Paperless Office Enabled by SDS
980504 - Follow up ref SDS 97 EP3O.
980506 - Stuart plans to print the SDS Typical Day Scenario, ref OF 2 0001, and
980507 - distribute so that colleagues at DCMA can learn how SDS enables a new
980508 - way of working, following up telecon on 010724. ref SDS 97 KS5O
980510 - ..
980511 - Printing online material reflects notice on 010724 that DCMA uses a
980512 - lot of paper. ref SDS 97 EP3O
980514 - A "new" idea is using SDS on the Internet that provides instant
980515 - access to relevant history showing cause and effect, using links,
980516 - that implement alignment requirements of common management
980517 - standards, per below. ref SDS 0 W64O The SDS design of Knowledge
980518 - Space strengthens understanding of context that enables effective
980519 - action. ref SDS 97 FG7N On 890809 an executive reported
980520 - understanding and follow up improve communication, commonly called
980521 - "listening." ref SDS 3 CJ9J
980523 - ..
980524 - The letter to Stuart today mentions this idea. ref DIT 1 2U4F
980526 - ..
980527 - Virtual office and "paperless" office are bridge concepts that
980528 - summarize the goal to use information connected into chronologies
980529 - of cause and effect, more commonly called "knowledge," see POIMS,
980530 - ref OF 1 5418, discussed with Stuart on 010724. ref SDS 97 EP3O
980531 - Using SDS online applies "Knowledge Space," see POIMS, ref OF 1
980532 - 1107, rather than using traditional practice of printing
980533 - documents. This enables people to gain experience needed to
980534 - discover KM saves time and money, when properly deployed using
980535 - SDS. Experience saving time and money is the only way to help
980536 - people discover the power of knowledge, who are discouraged about
980537 - KM, as cited by Stuart above, ref SDS 0 2N5K,
980539 - ..
980540 - For example, the record on 980630 reviews an article published by
980541 - PMI's "Project Management Journal" that maintains cost savings
980542 - from three factors that improve management are irrefutable, even
980543 - though calculations are complex. ref SDS 58 9T3O On 990201
980544 - calculation of cost savings from reducing use of paper in a USACE
980545 - District command approximates $2M per year. ref SDS 61 6925

980548 - Realizing savings from this new way of working requires using the
980549 - record online.

AW0901 - ..
AW0902 - Com Manager "Intelligence" Complements FSR to Enable Good Management
AW0904 - Stuart is worried managers don't want to be tied to a computer; they
AW0905 - want good management to occur using natural mental biology to remember
AW0906 - everything correctly, and to create and maintain alignment. Despite
AW0907 - new realities of information overload that daily overwhelm limited
AW0908 - span of attention, managers like to show up for a meeting and rely on
AW0909 - whatever pops into the mind at the moment, then use communication
AW0910 - skills to avoid accountability by blaming others for not telling the
AW0911 - truth when results do not align with objectives, requirements and
AW0912 - commitments, overlooking the fact that "truth" is a moving target on
AW0913 - the Information Highway of today, reviewed on 950412. ref SDS 22 3920
AW0915 - ..
AW0916 - This common feeling is, also, reviewed in POIMS. ref OF 1 24H9
AW0918 - ..
AW0919 - Another common feeling is not having enough time to think, reported on
AW0920 - 970910. ref SDS 53 3479
AW0922 - ..
AW0923 - Another management frustration is often cast as "Why is this always
AW0924 - happening to me!" cited in POIMS. ref OF 1 05EE
AW0926 - ..
AW0927 - Mysterious problems "always happening" to people are attributed to
AW0928 - "Murphy's Law." see again POIMS, ref OF 1 0307
AW0930 - ..
AW0931 - Murphy's Law excuses continual problems that reduce productivity,
AW0932 - earnings and stock prices, cited on 001207, ref SDS 79 V54M, because
AW0933 - people can maintain alignment for only about one (1) minute, under new
AW0934 - realities of a faster paced world. see POIMS. ref OF 1 0307 Faster
AW0935 - information overwhelms human mental biology, per analysis on 950204.
AW0936 - ref SDS 20 0550 People can only manage about 7 subjects, from
AW0937 - research on 990303, ref SDS 62 5328, and people can only remember
AW0938 - about 5% of the gist of things, from research cited by Henry van Eykan
AW0939 - on 000927. ref SDS 75 PO4F These obvious limitations of natural
AW0940 - mental biology, juxtaposed against expanding complexity of a new world
AW0941 - order, require proactive steps to aid human memory, as explained in
AW0942 - POIMS, ref OF 1 1298, and in NWO... ref OF 3 1675
AW0944 - ..
AW0945 - Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger decries poor management, as
AW0946 - continual bumbling, like "Alice in Wonderland," reviewed on 940609.
AW0947 - ref SDS 12 4238 This concern embodies Stuart's point on 010618 that
AW0948 - DCMA wants to improve literacy. ref SDS 90 KWSQ
AW0950 - ..
AW0951 - One solution is to add management support, rather than try to "teach
AW0952 - an old dog new tricks."
AW0954 - ..
AW0955 - Managers and commanders use aids for engineering, accounting, admin,
AW0956 - operations, and so on. Secretaries organize schedules and paperwork
AW0957 - to leverage a manager's innate talents. These traditional roles are
AW0958 - supplemented by support for "intelligence" work, similar to the way
AW0959 - the CIA and NSA develop intelligence everyday for the President of the
AW0960 - United States. see USACE report, ref DRP 6 2022 and POIMS. ref OF 1
AW0961 - 2200 SDS enables a new way of working to meet new realities of a
AW0962 - faster paced world where information overload overwhelms span of
AW0963 - attention, and so requires "intelligence" support on a wider scale.
AW0964 - SDS technology makes this economical.
AW0966 - ..
AW0967 - "Communication Manager" is a new role using SDS that enables
AW0968 - management to get things done without being tied to the computer, and
AW0969 - without learning anything new, if they choose not to do so, as
AW0970 - reported by the Deputy Director of a state agency recently on 010725,
AW0971 - ref SDS 98 03J7, citing a meeting on 911205. ref SDS 4 8402
AW0973 - ..
AW0974 - Review on 010608 indicates SDS adds value to the FSR role. ref SDS 86
AW0975 - 6D5I
AW0977 - ..
AW0978 - One solution then to the problem of managers not wanting to improve
AW0979 - the work, as reported by Fortune magazine, reviewed on 990625,
AW0980 - ref SDS 65 0460, is to strengthen the FSR role, as recommended on
AW0981 - 010608, ref SDS 86 3T8I, and on 010619. ref SDS 90 GZ5F
AW0983 - ..
AW0984 - On 010622 Stuart proposed ideas for using SDS to support the FSR role.
AW0985 - ref SDS 92 CX4K
AW0987 - ..
AW0988 - Cost/benefits of Communication Manager were reviewed on 970620.

BO1829 - 18. Debugging management is a bridge idea borrowed from the software
BO1830 - industry that underscores the benefits of adding alignment to
BO1831 - organizational memory for discovering and correcting defects in
BO1832 - management reasoning, similar to the way software engineers

C20791 - Therefore, progress cannot occur by relying on people grasping the
C20792 - power of converting information into knowledge, any more than people
C20793 - grasp the power of literacy in learning the ABCs. People are not
C20794 - convinced to go to school; they are taken to school and positioned to
C20795 - acquire experience working with literacy, because knowledge of the
C20796 - ABCs is essential for civilization, the nation and for each individual
C20797 - to survive in a modern society.

C20804 - ..
C20805 - At some point, we have to start using SDS to gain the experience that
C20806 - imparts actual knowledge, which in turn overcomes ignorance and
C20807 - denial. Using SDS records on the Internet illustrates a stronger way
C20808 - of working. Leadership must set a course that provides this
C20809 - experience, and must exhibit courage to stay the course while people
C20810 - struggle with the challenge of learning in order to discover the power
C20811 - of knowledge.
