A ‘Language’ to discuss complex issues:

‘prose+structural graphics’

So what is ‘structural graphics’?

Here’s a simple structural graphic:

Idea 1

Idea 2

The picture and its translation (along with any other explanation required) constitute ‘prose+structural graphics’

The arrow stands for a particular relationship, e.g.:“leads to” (in this case)

and the relationship between the ideas, shown as an arrow

In prose, the above structural graphic means: “Idea 1 leads to Idea 2”. That sounds just too simplistic to deserve to be stated, but check out what follows in the next slides!

Creating a world-class organization

Making our organization a truly exciting place to work in

“may contribute to”

Challengingeach member of staff to develop himself/herself fully

Using well defined methodologies, we create graphical pictures showing inter-relationships between elements to represent our ‘mental models’ of the systems we wish to create

Fundas

slide4

If ‘A’ ‘B’,

and if ‘B’ ‘C’,

then ‘A’ MUST ‘C’

(where ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’ are elements and stands for the specific transitive relationship under consideration)

The relationships in these pictures are ‘transitive’, which means:

This simple idea has enormous ramifications (in regard to construction of these models as well as to their interpretation), some of which will be hinted at in the following slides

Fundas

slide5

“may contribute to”

Interpretive Structural Model

To enable each member of our staff to develop most effectively

To make our organisation a truly exciting place to work in

To help each person develop himself/herself as an individual

To provide effective counseling for perceived needs of staff

To challenge each member of staff develop himself/herself to maximum possible

To provide all needed facilities for effective work and recreation

Fundas

slide6

“may contribute to”

Even when the model comprises hundreds or thousands of elements, we can always focus on a small number of those elements in the full confidence that we have not lost sight of anything.

This is an ‘Interpretive Structural Model’ (ISM), one of the two powerful modeling tools we use based on the seminal contributions of Professor John N. Warfield to systems science

Interpretive Structural Modeling enables us to view systems in the context of specific ‘transitive’ relationships that may be relevant in the system at specific periods of its evolution

slide7

John Warfield’s ‘Interactive Management’ comprises a set of methodologies to enable problem solvers to generate and clarify ideas and two powerful modeling tools to enable them to ‘structure’, or organise ideas generated. You’ve just seen ISM, one of the modeling tools.

Fundas

slide8

I illustrate the second modeling tool, Field Representation (FR) method, with a ‘second-order’ model -- a ‘model of models’, the OPMS – on the next slide with no further explanation. I shall later present more on FR. The OPMS ‘leads to’ and ‘enables’ the developments illustrated thereafter.

Fundas

slide9

All aspects of the ‘Mission’ – no matter how large or ambitious, can be captured on a single page, with linkages to all details!

This is a ‘generic’ model, applicable to any Mission!

It’s an ‘Operating System for the Human Mind’!

Fundas

Bold arrows mean “lead(s) to”

Means “applied to”

Representations of Mental Models

Elements

This fundamental model, through the OPMS, enables a powerful ‘problem-solving loop’ to develop in the individual/group mind

Comparison

We claim that OPMS is by far THE most effective means available to create needed changes in our mental models, and to guide appropriate action on the real world!
