120903 - Gary comments in a letter favorably on Jerry Nord's proposal to work
120904 - on SDS. He called later in the afternoon and we discussed suggesting
120905 - to Jerry that a first task would be to work on improving Medit memory
120906 - problem. ref SDS 0 FR8K Gary will consider calling Morris to get
120907 - input on scope of fixing the memory problem. ref SDS 0 5B7M Gary
120908 - noted importance to initially focus on simply learning SDS and how to
120909 - perform Com Metrics to overcome risk that Jerry and his team at CSG do
120910 - not grasp the SDS design that has stymied others in the past.
120911 - ref SDS 0 PO5I Gary has some ideas on editing the list of SDS trade
120912 - secrets, and feels there are two more that should be added.

1212 - Progress
121301 - Comments Requested on Jerry Nord's Proposal to Work on SDS
121303 - Follow up ref SDS 17 PPUQ.
121305 - Sent Gary a letter this morning with copies to....
121307 - Morris, Ross, Bill DeHart, Pat Lincoln and Dave Buoncristiani.
121309 - ..
121310 - The letter transmitted the proposal from Jerry Nord this morning, and
121311 - it said....
121313 - 1. Attached is a proposal on SDS development from Jerry Nord at
121314 - CSG, received today. ref SDS 17 PPUQ
121316 - ..
121317 - 2. My impression is that Jerry is making a pretty good offer that
121318 - protects IP as well as possible, ref SDS 17 K37T, and so this
121319 - presents a good chance for Jerry to learn SDS and transition to
121320 - daily implementation, as you are doing at Aerospace company.
121322 - ..
121323 - 3. One thing I am inclined to incorporate is a list of agreed upon
121324 - features that are unique "trade secrets" of SDS, as shown in
121325 - the record on 000831, ref SDS 11 G8E3, and suggested in comments
121326 - to the record today reviewing Jerry's proposal. ref SDS 17 K37T
121328 - ..
121329 - 4. Jerry and I discussed on Monday how to incorporate CSG into an
121330 - MOU, which seems like what he is proposing in his letter today.
121331 - He understands we don't want to shoot ourselves in the foot by
121332 - disclosing how to improve the work, only to have CSG go get a
121333 - patent and/or copyright after they learn the secret of KM.
121335 - ..
121336 - 5. Perhaps the language he is proposing today does this in light
121337 - of the reference in Jerry's letter to Welch and partners, and
121338 - to the record on 030126 that discusses royalties. ref SDS 17
121339 - K38R
121341 - ..
121342 - Any comments?
121344 - ..
121345 - 6. Notice Jerry wants to discuss this tomorrow on Thursday, so
121346 - feedback today would be appreciated.
121348 - ..
121349 - Thanks.
121351 - ..
121352 - Rod
121354 - ..
121355 - Gary sent a letter back today saying....
121357 - Rod,
121359 - 1. Looks good to me.
121361 - 2. He is clearly aware of the major issues and agrees with them.
121363 - ..
121364 - 3. If things work out, follow-on arrangements can be developed.
121366 - ..
121367 - 4. Development work to be done is still open, so we will see what
121368 - input he comes up with so far as UI, etc.
121370 - ..
121371 - Thanks,
121373 - ..
121374 - Gary called this afternoon and we discussed Jerry's proposal further,
121375 - shown below.

140504 - Gary, also, related that the motherboard on his computer at home

190610 - Gary feels a first priority is to fix the SDS memory problem, which is
190611 - also reviewed in Jerry's proposal. ref SDS 17 4E3F
190613 - ..
190614 - This adds critical utility to the current version for use at CSG, at
190616 - Improving memory adds life to SDS while a new version is created over
190617 - the next five (5) years or so.
190619 - [On 020612 discussed this task with Jerry Nord. ref SDS 19 GS5G
190621 - ..
190622 - Additionally, doing the task is a software engineering problem which
190623 - gives Jerry and CSG staff something immediate to do while learning how
190624 - the current version of SDS works.
190626 - ..
190627 - Gary indicated that one approach might be to use a "DOS Extender."
190629 - ..
190630 - Gary will think about talking to Morris for input on the scope of the
190631 - task, both to upgrade the existing version to support a DOS Extender,
190632 - and/or to add commands to the C version which Morris started.
190634 - ..
190635 - Would be helpful to get Morris to estimate the time and task force
190636 - this project would require if funding were available.
190638 - [On 030617 Gary called Morris, but they did not have time to
190639 - make headway; they agreed to follow up call, which is pending on
190640 - 030617. ref SDS 20 EL9H
190642 - ..
190643 - [On 031008 Gary wrote to Morris on progress using SDS at Aerospace company,
190644 - but did not ask about progress on upgrading SDS, ref SDS 23
190645 - 0001; Morris responded commending Gary's work using SDS and
190646 - offering ideas on accelerating transformation, but did not
190647 - report on progress upgrading SDS. ref SDS 23 1T9M
190649 - ..
190650 - While we talked I gave Morris' home phone number to Gary from the
190651 - Contacts, and advised that Morris is working from home, so his home
190652 - number is generally good for days and in the evening.

401308 - which was submitted on 030506. ref SDS 16 SV5K
401310 - ..
401311 - Gary related that there wasn't enough time on 030506 to organize the
401312 - record using the eight (8) steps for SDS to save time finding
401313 - information, listed on 001219. ref SDS 12 FO5M Gary indicated that
401314 - since he knows Rod will invest time for saving time, he was able to
401315 - save time by omitting all of the steps on this matter. This is part
401316 - of the 3-layer architecture that uses a Com Manager to improve

401324 - [On 031008 Gary wrote letter to CSG explaining advantages of
401325 - Communication Analyst using SDS provides organizational memory
401326 - that helps everyone because a little intelligence makes a big
401327 - improvement in a big organization. ref SDS 22 JT4P

401330 - [On 031008 company staff discovers Gary needs help using SDS
401331 - because only one person is not enough to provide organizational
401332 - memory on a big project. ref SDS 22 JU4T
401335 - ..
401336 - On 911205 Wayne Wetzel cited advantage of Com Manager role to improve
401337 - productivity. ref SDS 5 8402 On 971008 USACE issued a report
401338 - indicting that ROI is 10:1. ref DRP 3 0001 On 020415 Jerry Nord

401342 - finding information fast and easy, illustrating the role of a
401343 - Com Manager or scribe. ref SDS 21 6I4R
401345 - ..
401346 - Care is needed to focus on the goal of improving ability to find
401347 - information, rather than trying to write everything down and finding
401348 - everything all the time. SDS tools give Gary a better chance to
401349 - improve memory for finding information when needed, and a Com Manager
401350 - is another asset that applies skills and more time using SDS tools
401351 - which further improves ability to find the right information quickly
401352 - when needed. Nothing, however, will ever offer a perfect solution.

Jerry Others at CSG May Not Get It SDS Counterintuitive
460401 - ..
460402 - People May Not "Get It" SDS Management Method Counterintuitive
460404 - Follow up ref SDS 17 XO5L.
460406 - Gary raised possibility that Jerry and/or others at CSG might not
460407 - understand the SDS plan, perform, report management method, as set out
460408 - in POIMS, ref OF 5 6649, based on experience reported on 920215.
460409 - ref SDS 6 5820 This could impact Jerry's proposal to develop
460410 - improvements for SDS. ref SDS 17 XO5L This suggests that the first
460411 - priority is for Jerry and his team to learn the mechanics of using SDS
460412 - and then for performing Communication Metrics, as shown by analysis in
460413 - the record reviewing the proposal. ref SDS 17 XO5L
460415 - ..
460416 - For example, SDS was installed for Morris at Chips on 910520. At that
460417 - time, Morris seemed to find significant utility. ref SDS 2 655O Later
460418 - on 911123 Morris remarked that, what he called, the "Welch Management
460419 - Method" is different from the way other people work. ref SDS 4 4930
460420 - On 920215 Morris noted SDS is counterintuitive; earlier, analysis on
460421 - 910529 explained why people don't "get it." Management practices
460422 - molded from centuries using information technology creates a mental
460423 - block that blinds people from understanding SDS methodology.
460424 - ref SDS 3 9989 This seems peculiar because, as David Vannier at Intel
460425 - noted on 970603 that SDS enables people to use commonly accepted good
460426 - management practices. ref SDS 10 S196 Research on 921205 shows that
460427 - limited time prevents everyone from using good management, ref SDS 7
460428 - 2552, which makes daily work an "Alice in Wonderland" of continual
460429 - bumbling, noted by Henry Kissiner, reviewed on 940609. ref SDS 8 4238
460430 - The overwhelming tendency to use bad management reported on 010908,
460431 - ref SDS 13 YF5O, makes good management seem like "overkill," reported
460432 - on 890324. ref SDS 1 6894 In other words using good management in
460433 - practice looks like "overkill" and so SDS seems counterintuitive
460434 - because it enables good management, as explained by Bob Johnston on
460435 - 970107. ref SDS 9 4953
460437 - ..
460438 - Therefore, extra effort is required to help people overcome cultural
460439 - blinders in order to implement SDS and discover the how to improve the
460440 - initial design, which is the objective of working with Jerry Nord at
460441 - CSG.
460443 - [On 030612 discussed this challenge with Jerry; and urged him to
460444 - seek help early and often as needed. ref SDS 19 669M
460446 - ..
460447 - My sense is that as a result of the Morris' experience, attention was
460448 - given to this issue with Gary, in part, by explaining the concept in
460449 - POIMS. ref OF 5 SE4F Gary's work reviewing POIMS and other
460450 - foundational documents, plus having the time for study, which Morris
460451 - did have time to do, by virtue of ongoing duties to manage Chips, as
460452 - senior VP, may have helped Gary "get it," in sufficient degree to
460453 - soldier on despite a complex learning curve.
460455 - [On 030612 Morris explains that publication on the Internet can
460456 - compromise trade secrets. ref SDS 18 0001
