METRICS / GOALS
GOALS LINK TO STRATEGY ... BUT NOT ENOUGH TO ENSURE PROGRESS AND PERFORMANCE
.
GOALS ARE THE EASY PART

Goals are necessary, but insufficient for the effective management of anything.

Goals are very helpful in describing what an organization is trying to do. They are a great tool for the public relations department, and somewhat helpful in marketing ... but for the management of an organization they merely serve to point the organization in a direction, but do rather little to enable to actual journey to efficient realization of the goals.

In the corporate world, goals are often used as a way of messaging what the customer or client wants to hear, with little or no connection with the actual way in which the organization conducts its business. This has been a common practice with respect to corporate GHG emissions and impact on climate change. Having goals, and actually investing in the technology to meet the goals tend to be very different realities.

In the world of international development and humanitarian assistance, goals are a big talking point. There is some value in talking about important things, but if the only thing that happens is talk, then the value of goals is quite modest ...especially when compared to the importance of the issues needing to be addressed.

UNITED NATIONS and MANAGEMENT METRICS
The United Nations does a lot of 'big picture' metrics ... but much less about management metrics suited to making better decisions

UN SDGs
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
SDGs - SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were launched by the United Nations in 2015 after about two years of meetings, talk and draft proposals. The members of the UN embraced a set of 17 SDGs together with more than 120 indicators of progress. This is a replacement for the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs) that were adopted in 2000. An important criticism of the SDGs is that they represent discontinuity from the MDGs to the SDGs and much of the momentum that was in place for the MDGs was lost in the transition.

While 17 goals and a multitude of targets and indicators is a weakness, on the upside, the reason why so many goals, targets and indicators were embraced is that many more important economic actors were engaged in 2015 compared to 2000, and that is positive.

Mapping the SDGs to the TVM analytical framing
It turns out that most of the SDGs are about the Social Capital dimension of the socio-enviro-economic system. Much less is about the environment and the economic dimension. In addition, the SDGs are quite unclear about the actors who need to be engaged in order to achieve the results. /td>

The TVM framing is more detailed than the Goals (of the SDGs) though the associated indicators are more detailed than the TVM analysis. /td>

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
