OVERVIEW / THE ARC OF HISTORY
LOTS TO LEARN FROM HISTORY AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR THE PRESENT AND THE FUTURE
Even though there has been amazing technological progress, almost everyone seems to be disappointed with the way the world works because in large part, the world does not work very well.
There is more knowledge, there are more ideas, there are more thinkers, there are huge possibilities, but even with all of this there is rather little progress compared to what is needed and what is possible. Something important is missing, and part of this is the lack of a system of performance measurement that embraces everything that matters. With the right metrics, it will be easier to move from 'talk' to 'walk'.
This link shows material that was orignally prepared around 2000.

CONTEXT
WHY METRICS ARE IMPORTANT

MODERN METRICS ARE DANGEROUSLY DYSFUNCTIONAL
It is widely accepted that you manage what you measure. The modern world has impressive data about corporate profit performance and the growth of financial wealth. These metrics dominate the conversation in the media, and important decisions being made in politics and business.
GDP (Gross Domestic Product) is a related metric that is deeply flawed because it ignores too many of the things that make life worth living.
The dysfunction of modern metrics is one of the key reasons why so much in the modern world is wrong ... but by no means the only thing that is wrong!
Open L07-METRICS
CONVENTIONAL FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING
CONVENTIONAL FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING AND RELATED MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS ARE VERY POWERFUL

BUT ONLY ABOUT PROFIT PERFORMANCE AND FINANCIAL CAPITAL
Corporate financial management and management information enables rapid decision making about everythiong associated with corporate profit performance.
There is nothing like it for the impact on society and the impact on the environment ... the externalities are ignored.
The concepts of double entry accounting are ancient, but they are the key to the effectiveness of accountancy as an analytical tool.
Open L070-CFA-CONVENTIONAL-FINANCIAL-ACCOUNTANCY

TRUE VALUE IMPACT ACCOUNTING
ACCOUNTABILITY FOR EVERYTHING USING DOUBLE ENTRY ACCOUNTING FOR EVERYTHING
Conventional financial accounting uses money as its unit of account, and concerns itself mainly with money revenues, costs and profits without taking into account the 'externalities' which impact society, natural resources and the environment.
The True Value Impact Accounting (TVIA) initiative builds on the powerful well-established double entry accounting construct to account for everything, giving accountability for ALL of CAPITAL (i.e. HUMAN CAPITAL, NATURAL CAPITAL and CREATED PHSYICAL AND INTANGIBLE CAPITALS) and not just FINANCIAL CAPITAL.
TVIA uses multiple UNITS OF ACCOUNT rather than only money and STANDARD VALUE PROFILES for the PRODUCTS that flow through the system
TVIA has a comprehensive architecture that enables coherent progress and performance reporting for ORGANIZATIONS, PEOPLE (Individuals and families), PLACES, PROCESSES, PRODUCTS and STREAMS.
The purpose of TVIA is to enable better decision making to build better societies and a sustainable world. An important part of the initiative is to facilitate better timely decisions by individual people.
Open L07-TVIA

CORE CONCEPTS
CORE CONCEPTS FROM ACCOUNTANCY, ENGINEERING THERMODYNAMICS AND SCIENCE
There are several core concepts in science, engineering and accountancy that have been embedded into the design of True Value Impact Accounting.
The Double Entry construct is one of the most important. This idea ensures that there is a rigorous connection between the change in STATE and the associated activities or FLOWS. This idea mirrors some of the basic thinking in engineering thermodynamics and science.
The accountancy profession enagaged in assurance in large part to ensure that reported performance reflected the facts and the related data about the facts. This remains important as the proligeration of data makes validation of the data and the associated analysis and reporting more and more critical ... and perhaps even moreso as AI and Big Data become more widely deployed.

REPORTING ENTITIES
REPORTING FOR ORGANIZATIONS, PEOPLE, PLACES, PROCESSES, PRODUCTS, STREAMS

Also PROJECTS, PROGRAMS and POLICIES

In conventional accounting there are established rules for reporting for the reporting entity. For example, all corporate business organizations report financial performance including the transactions that relate to the organization but excluding transactions that are outsie the 'reporting envelope'. Rules have been established to handle complex corporate structures involving subsidiaries that are both wholly owned, and those with outside stockholders. In TVIA these ideas are expanded to enable coherent reporting not only for the business organization but for all the various entities that make up the complete socio-enviro-economic system.

UNITS OF ACCOUNT
MORE POWERFUL THAN MONETIZING IMPACT
Conventional financial accounting uses money as its unit of account, and there are established methods for the use of multiple currencies when this is needed because of the nature of the business.
With TVIA, multiple UNITS OF ACCOUNT are used in a similar way to account for the way in which different activities impact ALL the CAPITALS that make up the SOCIO-ENVIRO-ECONOMIC SYSTEM. This is more powerful and more flexible than the idea of valuing everything using money and markets

CRITICAL DATA ABOUT THE TRUE COSTS AND VALUE OF EVERY PRODUCT ON THE PLANET
Well managed companies know a lot about every product that is flowing into their organizations and being produced for sale. There is nothing like this level of knowedgle about the products that are flowing through society and having impact on people and the environment.
In companies one technique for documenting knowledge about products is the idea of Standard Costs which is powerful and relatively low cost. In the TVIA data architecture, the equivalent are STANDARD VALUE PROFILES.
