Project L.O.F.T. Report. May 2007 through October 2007 Creating a design to meet stakeholder desires and dissolve our current set of interacting problems. Brainstormed by the Project L.O.F.T. Design Team. Stakeholder Specifications.
The Design team carefully examined and generated themes and design specifications from the 2200+ stakeholder-generated ideas.
What follows are the results of their work and some “first-blushes” of potential designs.
What the system must produce:
Below are a representation of stakeholder specifications that helped frame the set of functions:

With the assistance of systems scientist, Jamshid Gharajedaghi, an organizational platform was drafted as one possible way to organize to achieve the functions, structures, and processes desired AND that would hold promise of dissolving the current set of interacting problems we face.
This is but a first blush at attempting to conceptualize how an organization might be able to create its own future.
The next slide shows the model with subsequent slides meant to describe each segment.
This particular idea is based upon a “platform” concept. A “platform” is organized around a specific set of work. In this idea, there are 5 platforms:
On December 11, 2007, the Design Team will meet for a day to attempt to create a design and to determine some logical “first steps” during the first approximation of the design.
