251116 - Gary's boss, Steve, came to Gary's office today and
251117 - requested that the project record be transferred to the
251118 - company intranet so that everybody can use the links for
251119 - timely access to project history that verifies accuracy

251121 - as shown in Gary's record earlier this morning.
251122 - ref SDS 86 0001 Gary now has an assignment to transfer
251123 - SDS records to the company intranet. This request today

251125 - ref SDS 44 TT9O, also with the report on 030822 when

770442 - Jerry asked about the letter this morning to Gary, ref SDS 87
770443 - XV8I, that shows growing market demand for better personal and
770444 - organizational memory, citing Eric Armstrong's letter asking
770445 - the OHS/DKR group, ref SDS 87 XV4Y, for help finding
770446 - information to support a letter he was writing. ref SDS 87 024L
770447 - This evidence shows a new attitude about linking and that
770448 - conventional search methods are not effective. ref SDS 87 0258
770449 - Another example in the same record indicates that finding
770450 - information seems like a fairly broad requirement that people
770451 - encounter everyday on the job. ref SDS 87 5B5H On 011003 Eric
770452 - complained that productivity is paralyzed because nobody can
770453 - find anything without SDS. ref SDS 33 EC5N

770456 - information technology to support for knowledge work.
770457 - ref SDS 88 0001
770459 - ..
770460 - Jerry noted that Eric wrote a month earlier on 010916 that SDS
770461 - enables amazing memory with methods that obviously work.
770462 - ref SDS 32 0001, and Jack Park reported on 011003 nobody else
770463 - has any clues to solve the problem. ref SDS 33 O74L
770465 - ..
770466 - Better memory to remember where to find find key information
770467 - quickly and accurately is a good way to begin explaining SDS.
770468 - Research on 900319 showing that better memory aids human
770469 - reasoning, ref SDS 2 0005, supports the idea that SDS helps
770470 - people work intelligently by leveraging innate mental capacity
770471 - to remember the gist of the story, explained in POIMS.

770474 - ..
770475 - Jerry asked about strategy for transformation to create a
770476 - market for selling SDS. We discussed several steps....
770478 - 1. Jerry's plans to develop and sell a new product that has
770479 - some SDS features beginning with the addon he and Jonnathan
770480 - are developing for Outlook, that can then be incrementally
770481 - increased so that people gradually become familiar with
770482 - using knowledge tools over a span of 5 - 10 years. As
770483 - more people become familiar with more SDS capabilities,
770484 - demand will grow into a new market for Communication
770485 - Metrics to work intelligently using SDS, as Gary is doing
770486 - at Aerospace company.
770488 - ..
770489 - Jerry will review the history of SDS development to see how
770490 - the program began and was improved incrementally through
770491 - subsequent versions over the past 20 years, for clues on
770492 - initial steps to improve Microsoft programs.

770495 - of SDS. ref SDS 89 GO4G

AD1508 - 2. Gary explained work at Aerospace company to transform from information
AD1509 - to a culture of knowledge by using SDS to deliver useful
AD1510 - intelligence. Exposure for months and years to better
AD1511 - command and control of the work, explained in POIMS,
AD1512 - ref OF 7 1113, breeds familiarity with SDS records that
AD1513 - grows into demand for working intelligently to save time
AD1514 - and money. Gary recalled a book that presented a principle
AD1515 - of "Relentless Pressure" for helping people become familiar
AD1516 - with new ideas. This concept supports the strategy for a
AD1517 - 3-layer architecture adopted this past April on 030430, and
AD1518 - discussed again on 030524 under a plan for "steady-as-she-
AD1519 - goes," to "fly under the radar" by exposing SDS slowly that

AD1531 - Steady exposure applying the eight (8) steps using SDS for
AD1532 - Communication Metrics, listed on 001219, ref SDS 29 4W4L,
AD1533 - eventually reaches a critical mass of understanding that
AD1534 - converts a "new way of working" into a familiar way of
AD1535 - working "intelligently" to save time and money, as reported
AD1536 - by USACE on 971007. ref DRP 3 0001 Transforming culture
AD1537 - from opposing good management to improve earnings takes
AD1538 - time for reasons cited by Morris on 990527. ref SDS 22 1233
AD1539 - Improvement can only occur gradually because "intelligence"
AD1540 - is not a familiar practice on the job, and so at first good
AD1541 - management seems funny, foreign and alien, noted at Intel
AD1542 - on 990713. ref SDS 23 2150 Steady exposure of SDS records
AD1543 - creates relentless pressure that gradually educates people
AD1544 - about the power and benefits of knowledge from adding
AD1545 - intelligence to information. Removing ignorance through
AD1546 - experience makes people feel comfortable enough to overcome
AD1547 - fear of accountability that makes demand for SDS latent.
AD1548 - Ignorance and fear foster a culture of denial that
AD1549 - intelligence support is required for good management
AD1550 - because without SDS to manage growing complexity under new
AD1551 - realities of the 21st century, knowledge that brings
AD1552 - accountability seems like an "unsound" working method,
AD1553 - noted by Lynn Conway reported on 960612. ref SDS 16 1368
AD1555 - [On 040102 review using SDS at major company shows
AD1556 - progress on learning 8 steps for Communication Metrics.
AD1557 - ref SDS 90 529F
AD1559 - ..
AD1560 - When transformation occurs the power of culture that makes
AD1561 - demand for SDS latent by resisting improvement dramatically
AD1562 - changes. The number of people requesting support for
AD1563 - working "intelligently" suddenly expands, because saving
AD1564 - lives, time and money are core drives of human biology.
AD1565 - The dynamics that fuel the growth of markets for SDS are
AD1566 - latent, because up until now the ability to augment human
AD1567 - intelligence with technology seemed beyond reach, noted by
AD1568 - Morris on 990718. ref SDS 24 2592 Earlier at Intel on
AD1569 - 960315 Communication Metrics support seemed "futuristic."
AD1570 - ref SDS 15 4545, which is another way of saying funny,
AD1571 - foriegn and alien to people on the job today. Since need
AD1572 - for "intelligence" expands every day under new realities of
AD1573 - a new world order, cited by...

AD1584 - volitle recipe just waiting to explode when latent demand

AD1592 - ..
AD1593 - Gary's progress reported today getting feedback from his
AD1594 - boss, Steve, suggesting that putting SDS records on the
AD1595 - Aerospace company intranet would turn on the light of "intelligence"
AD1596 - ref SDS 0 PG7F, shows progress on the strategy to build
AD1597 - demand for SDS by applying relentless pressure delivering
AD1598 - useful work product to busy people on the job.
AD1601 - ..
AD1602 - 3. Education fosters a culture of knowledge by eliminating
AD1603 - ignorance, fear and denial about the benefits of working
AD1604 - intelligently. Education comes from books, advertising and
AD1605 - All of us need to work on explaining SDS and Com Metrics,
AD1606 - including submit papers and speaking at professional events
AD1607 - based on SDS foundational documents, planned on 020924.
AD1608 - ref SDS 37 0001

AD1611 - An example is the inquiry from Gopal Kapur at the Center
AD1612 - for Project Management on 031206. ref SDS 83 0001 Project
AD1613 - management events provide a path for helping people
