Value and care:

The connection not always obvious.  Fogged over in our view from the peep holes in our bio-wrapper.  The wrapper that shapes how others view us.  The wrapper that sets up polarity, bias, attraction.

< Care < Value > Love > And back around to care.  Value in the middle, because value an important driver of both care and love.  Around and around this ring WE go as full bodied human electrons flowing in complex toroidal fashion, continuously ring[ing] a planet ringing the sun.  Our interactions with other forms carrying a sequence, a polarity, and energy that can be observed in each and every exchange.  Forcing Functions exist in Relational Physics, just as they do in mechanical physics.  WE can feel it, our feelings measure it.  Different actors having different capacity for positive, negative charge.  Micro to Macro rotation of things and their location.

Logistics and interesting word.  A Pedestrian concept to describe the flow of things from location to location.  Interactive communications in a social layer surrounding things and their location as they travel the globe, or get shot into space.  WE are distinguishing communication from Coordination; the former often just talking; the latter a specific language for getting things done in any language.  Once you know the speech act code.  That code embedded herein as an elemental form woven into each piece.

WE are going to continue to step through a number of things quickly in this Exploration.  More specifically a speech act logic sequence, stripped of psychology.  Not that there is anything wrong with the ology studies in general, WE just need to Care for Balance.  And, so, WE are going to get specific about speech act logic, precisely because it has historically been labeled as too harsh.  A psychological characterization in itself, quite likely rooted in deep resistance born elsewhere.

Enter Spock.  Hero of Star-Trek fame, loved by many.  As he openly mocked psychology, repeatedly pointing to emotion as the human weakness that causes most of our pain and suffering.  All because humans have language:

"I Love You.  I Value You.  I Care."

These are familiar Declarations we hear in a variety of contexts and situations.  The words meaningful in some way to the mouths they come from.  How can we tell?  WE test.

"Here is who i am; Where i am headed; and, why - here is what i need."

These also Declarations about situational specifics in our lives.  This is the Self preservation part.  The part WE are given by those that came before us.  Both gift and delivery can fall in a range of very positive to very negative.  Observation of which both internal and external.  How we see ourselves, how others see us.  Our Requests for alignment going forward.

"Well, i think that's the last thing you need, and i'm Concerned..."

Enter psychology.  Observe Linguistic Decline.  Counter Offer To Tangent; can we talk about your mental health, because I'm Concerned about you.  The Language Of Coordination specific at this point.  The Concerns of the Requestor are Not being met.

"Ah, I have Not granted you the authority to make an Assessment of me.  Though, I would be open to discussing your opinion in the future."

Interactive Physics reveals a wonderful simplicity.  Why pour more gasoline on the fire than you have to?  Conversationally, you've been very specific about who you are, what you are out to produce, and the help you see you'll need.  Conversationally, your partner in the forth and back has Acknowledged No Value, No Care... Love variable... WE Can Say No And Love Someone.  Parenting, for example, imprinting "No" until two, then gets a lot of "NO" responses for a year.  WE Can Diagram The Sequence in three moves; Declaration; Request; Decline.  No reply a decline.  Tangent a decline.  The Only thing that forwards the dialog, a rigorous discussion about satisfying the request to stand in the declaration offered.  If WE Let It Be Simple.

EXPLORATION: Where are we hesitant to have honest, open dialog?  Is it possible that by managing honest, open dialog with clear intention and care that we actually create relationship, not thwart it?

as killer:

Successfully building anything requires a sequence.  Software particularly problematic in that coders can get wound around the math and interrelationships within the code.

"Look at this!"

And, that has nothing to do with with what's essential, the physics of user relationship.  Love of use.

"Where is it?"

There is a balance in software development that is absolutely essential.  The balance of connecting Engineering with Marketing.  Commits that are not kept doing a number of things to drag the  possibility of successful project down.

CHICKEN <> EGG: Devs like to develop, if they liked to talk, they'd be in marketing or sales.  This becomes a problem when what needs to be done is sell.  And, before selling we have to market.  It is very difficult to market that which you are unsure you'll ever see.

Case:

Situation: Technology proven.  Anyone.  Literally anyone could use this application to play the piano in less than fifteen minutes.  Bright inventor, very personable.  He raised $10MM spent $15MM and crashed the company.  Not one company, two companies.  Why I am telling you this is because it is an amazing insight and potential exploration for you in how not to do it.

How to fail to figure out who and how to trust.  How not to assess the market.  How not to market.  How not to secure IP.  How not to invest in infrastructure.  How not develop a sales team.  How not to develop a product.  And, how not to manage a company.  Complete failure, two sequential shells.

"Actually, I raised Ten Million to spend Fifteen Million."

On the flip site of this we have investment is a usurious network, and an inability to make powerful assessments in other peoples actual capability.  Product expansion in lieu of market development.  Over the top graphics from a Disney "guru," an SEO "master" and a squeeze page "specialist."  Overkill on patent applications and brand rights.  Investment in outsourced fulfillment.  Investment in convenience players to fill work requirements over real experience.  Massive investment in product details that just didn't matter.  Flying around the country chasing big deals with perceived volume distributors.  And, after the first failure packaging the assets in a holding company to feed the second entity.

Why: The lack of coordination.  Each of the failure points had little to do with some thing.  The product was built, it worked flawlessly in result.  Each of the failure points had little to do with the location of things.  Things did ship.  Five million dollars in revenue with a one hundred fifty dollar ASP.  The failure was the result of miscoordination after miscoordination after miscoordination.  Everyone speaking the same language.  English.  No one spoke the language of coordination.

The company went bankrupt, twice, because of miscoordination.

Here I'm going to run through a quick sequence of strategies for the elements we've been talking about.  GOOD TO HERE...

.  This is not a business plan.  These are the operational standards we will, together, apply to our interactions.  The criteria from which we will, together, make assessments about what works and what doesn't.  This is the basis of establishing a system of proofs.  Asserted facts, which can be held to either true, or false positions around widely observable events.  Coordination contains rigor and respect.

Coordination holds the key to unlocking our current productivity stall.  Specifically, the waste, the coordination waste that has been happily living in our systems.  Lying in our interactions with others where we appear to be repeating unnecessary steps, or find ourselves and our teams stuck.  Waiting.

Simple Examples Of What Coordination Isn't:

We meet.  We find we have similar interests.  We enjoy our time together and commit to meet again.  We never do.

We meet.  We find we have similar interests.  We enjoy our time together and commit to meet again.  We trade a few messages to detail out day / time and place.  We confirm the day before.  Half an hour before the scheduled meet one person declares an emergency.  They continue texting you through the time you were to meet declaring how sorry they are and wanting to reschedule.  Never occurring to them that their emergency time is now being spent texting with the person they should have been meeting with.

The theme is disconnection.  The narrative can be expanded, though recurring disconnection is what can be observed in the outcomes around us when coordination isn't happening.

Simple Examples Of Where Coordination Waste Lives:

eMail; Text Threads; Chat; Voice Calls; AV Conferencing; Meetings; Follow Up Activities; and, General Conversation.

Speech Acts That Provide Wheel Rotation, Reciprocal Exchange:

Offer; Request; Accept; Decline; Counter; Declare; Speculate; Assess; Assert; and, Apology.
