370505 - that paralyzes productivity. ref SDS 0 EC5N He wants recommendations
370506 - for making KM fast and easy, otherwise he must be paid for doing hard
370507 - work using the methods he likes. ref SDS 0 O73F Jack Park explains
370508 - that work the past two years has not yielded any clues to improve
370509 - handling of daily information, which shows a growing new reality that
370510 - IT makes communication the biggest risk in enterprise, ref SDS 0 O76L,
370511 - seen by the fact that Jack has lost track of the many clues he has
370512 - offered. ref SDS 0 O74L This new reality is causing people to give up
370513 - by realizing hard work cannot make IT effective, as the economy
370514 - falters, and national security problems grow. ref SDS 0 SP6G Giving
370515 - up on IT, ref SDS 0 JF6M, may increase interest in working "smarter"
370516 - using intelligence supported by SDS. ref SDS 0 Y18H Just as good

370518 - laziness, ref SDS 0 516I, when the economy slows and national security
370519 - is threatened, people care about diligence, intelligence,
370520 - productivity, earnings and stock prices. Respect for customers
370521 - provides what people need, because that is what people want.
370522 - ref SDS 0 034M Eric's commitment to Traction suggests he try this
370523 - program to solve his current problem, and if that doesn't work wait

370911 - Earlier on 000503 Eric proposed email for what we are trying to

370913 - Management to improve productivity. ref SDS 62 F82E Eric confirmed
370914 - email for Knowledge Management on 000505. ref SDS 64 4392 Today Eric
370915 - complains experience since 2000 shows nobody can cope with the flow of

370931 - effect that converts information into the power of knowledge;
370932 - Knowledge Management takes a lot of hard work (i.e., energy)
370933 - without tools for intelligence support; without "knowledge,"
370934 - however, information overload drives management toward entropy,
370935 - which makes email a "killer application" that kills
370936 - productivity, from lectures on 21st century science.

370946 - stored in parts of the computer (software modules) that are not
370947 - frequently used. ref SDS G4 JD9L
370949 - ..
370950 - [On 070729 filing everything miscellaneous growing trend to
370951 - give up on communications and ignore context management
370952 - that helps people work intelligently finding critical
370953 - details to construct connections in time to make the power

370962 - ..
370963 - This confirms problems Eric reported on 010916 that finding critical
370964 - details is too hard. ref SDS B4 KA6H Eric reported earlier that SDS
370965 - technology enables amazing memory for finding everything, ref SDS B3
370966 - 0001, which aligns with Jack Park's report on 001130 that SDS makes
370967 - the structure of knowledge useful for people, ref SDS 91 H17O, because
370968 - everything is in the right place at the right time, as reported on
370969 - 010425. ref SDS 99 EP7F Below, Eric reports another problem:
370970 - Knowledge Management is too hard to accomplish using tools everybody
370971 - likes, so he won't make the effort without being paid for using good
370972 - management. ref SDS 0 O73F This case study illustrates powerful
370973 - cultural forces that slow the economy reported by Reuters on 001270.
370974 - ref SDS 92 V54M Too many people having too many problems because they
370975 - cannot find anything, reduces productivity, earnings and stock prices,
370976 - as noted in POIMS. ref OF 1 OF6N
370978 - [On 020217 DOD program manager explains need to support FAR
370979 - requirements for documenting work showing accurate communications
370980 - that save lives, time and money, ref SDS D8 1332; when people
370981 - cannot point to an accurate record they point fingers in
370982 - accusation and blame to avoid accountability for mistakes.
370983 - ref SDS D8 9360 SDS offers a direct solution to make management
370984 - productive. ref SDS D8 3105

370992 - accurately are ignored in government, business, health care, every
370993 - sector. ref SDS D9 NS6F
370995 - ..
370996 - [On 040203 bureaucracy and paperwork are the "blackhole" of
370997 - oreganization that paralyzes productivity because people do not
370998 - have time for adding intelligence to information that drives the
370999 - power of knowledge. ref SDS F8 QK6K
371001 - ..
371002 - [On 050303 binary search reduces time finding subjects from 17
371003 - down to 1 second in the organic structure of context; synergy with
371004 - precision access for dynamic linking makes makes finding critical
371005 - details fast and easy for "connecting the dots" in time to be
371006 - effective, because everythng is in the right place at the right
371007 - time. ref SDS G3 C16D
371009 - ..
371010 - Eric's report today aligns with article on 940722 saying people spend
371011 - 80% of the time trying to find things due to information overload.
371012 - ref SDS 12 CR6L Later, experience on 960325 shows there is not enough
371013 - time to find information to be prepared for working productively.
371014 - ref SDS 21 XP4H On 960406 experience at a major law firm illustrates
371015 - Eric's concern that failure to invest time on organization (e.g.,
371016 - context management, ontology, etc.) makes finding relevant information
371017 - difficult and expensive. ref SDS 22 5922 CBS News reported on 980412
371018 - that this problem is pervasive, ref SDS 30 8956, and further aligns
371019 - with the report a few months later on 980815 that US national security
371020 - is at risk because analysis is not being done for intelligence.
371021 - ref SDS 32 6424 As well, Henry van Eykan noted on 010315 information
371022 - overload prevents evaluating technologies, ref SDS 96 L53H, similar to
371023 - Eric's problem today, which indicates the future has arrived that was

AA0719 - This calculus can be represented as an equation of the form.....
AA0722 - SDS Utopia - Microsoft = overkill
AA0725 - ..
AA0726 - If SDS intelligence support is overkill, rather than an advantage for
AA0727 - solving Eric's problem, then failure to get analysis done in a timely,
AA0728 - competent manner, as Eric reports today, is due to laziness under
AA0729 - Jack's report on 010908, which is another way of saying people refuse

AA0731 - Grant Bowman erred in saying better technology is needed, and the
AA0732 - answer is simply working harder, called out by Eugene.

AA0735 - However, the extreme urgency in Eric's letter today, makes clear that,

AA0771 - Laziness was cited by Jack Park on 010908. ref SDS B0 UV4H
AA0773 - ..
AA0774 - Blind adherence to tools and methods that are fast and easy, but
AA0775 - reduce productivity, compounds ignorance. Like the Wizard of Oz and
AA0776 - Alice in Wonderland people feel good dismissing intelligence as
AA0777 - "overkill" while rushing to a meeting, seminar or to the growing lines
AA0778 - for the unemployed and chapter 11, as the economy implodes. Failing
AA0779 - to even acknowledge clues and to try a new way of working to solve the

AA0781 - chairs on the deck, as the Titanic falls slowly beneath the waves,
