CHARACTERISTICS OF ORGANIZATIONS
THE WAY TEAMWORK GETS THINGS DONE

HSBC
  • Almost the whole of global GDP flows through corporate business organizations
  • They are responsible for the deployment of technological innovations to improve productivity
  • They optimize their decisions to maximize profits and benefit for stockholders.
  • To a great extent, they ignore social impact and environmental impact and push back against regulation ... even where there are critical needs

CONVENTIONAL FINANCIAL REPORTING IS EVERYWHERE
MORE AND MORE IMPACT REPORTING IS BECOMING A NEW NORMAL

ORGANIZATIONS: Banks / E-Business / Big retail / Franchise chains / Small business

Organizations report more than any other part of the socio-enviro-economic system, but the focus is all about financial performance and the impact for owners / investors. External impacts are ignored in conventional accounting and financial reporting. TVIA builds on the existing conventional accounting making it possible to also report on material externalities that impact people, society and the environment.

NAVIGATION VIA DIFFERENT GROUPS OF ORGANIZATIONS
There are many types of organizations, and many individual organizations. All of them have different characteristics. Some are making profit and doing good. Others are making profit and doing immense damage to society and / or the environment. We need to know a lot more about these characteristics in a way that is efficient, timely and relevant.

ORGANIZATION / ORGANIZATIONS
THE ROLE OF ORGANIZATION / ORGANIZATIONS ... ESSENTIAL TO MANAGING AT SCALE
THE IDEA OF ORGANIZATION / BIG PROJECTS TAKE ORGANIZATION / THINK THE PYRAMIDS IN EGYPT ...
Without organization there is chaos. One of the things that has made modern productivity possible
Organizations have been a very important part of economic and financial performance for several hundred years. The metrics used in for-profit organizations to manage profit improvement have been very effective, but insufficient because they have ignored externalities up until now.

No organization can be successful 'on its own' ... a successful organizations understands the context where it is working and acts accordingly.
The most successful organizations are those that have a meaningful social purpose as well as being able to give a decent return to the investors that fund the organization.
The idea that the main purpose of an organization is merely to make the maximum return for the owners is a legal construct that originated in the USA in the 1920s when Henry Ford and the Dodge Brothers were engaging in very unfriendly litigation ... rather the main purpose of many great organizations has been to do good for society as, for example, the manufacture of Sunlight Soap in the 1880s in order to improve health by a company that went on to become Unilever

THE ROLE OF ORGANIZATION / ORGANIZATIONS ... ESSENTIAL TO MANAGING AT SCALE
ORGANIZATIONS - a critical component of the socio-enviro-economic system that enables efficiency
ORGANIZATIONS ARE USED TO IMPLEMENT IDEAS. ... Organizations have been a very important part of economic and financial performance for several hundred years. The metrics used in for-profit organizations to manage profit improvement have been very effective, but insufficient because they have ignored externalities up until now.
ORGANIZATION provides a framework for getting things done and achieving operational efficiency
ORGANIZATIONS ... Many different ways to organize ... different approaches ... different stakeholders ... different ownership ... but essential for performance efficiency
PRIVATE SECTOR ORGANIZATIONS ... THE BEST CONTRIBUTE SIGNIFICANTLY TO QUALITY OF LIFE ... THE WORST DO IMMENSE DAMAGE TO SOCIETY AND THE ENVIRONMENT
FOR PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS ARE EFFICIENT FOR MONEY CAPITAL FORMATION BUT NOT SO MUCH FOR SOCIETY AND ENVIRONMENT
NOT FOR PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS / NGOs exist to do good without a profit motivation. They are supported mainly by philanthrpy and to some extent by government grants

INITIATIVES GO TOP
THE ROLE OF ORGANIZATION / ORGANIZATIONS ... ESSENTIAL TO MANAGING AT SCALE INITIATIVES ... A KEY STEP BETWEEN IDEA AND IMPLEMENTATION AT SCALE
The first step in getting from an idea to implementation at scale ... that is, putting ideas into practice ... But very few achieve the scale that is needed to make a significant difference
Putting ideas into practice ... Ideas become initiatives ... And then graduate from there.
Most ideas do not become initiatives ... most initiatives have a short life before they fail. There are huge number of initiatives, but many do not have durable impact. There are many reasons for this. Among the reasons are inexperience, inadequate knowledge of the issues and problems, and not enough funding.
Many good ideas fail. Few initiatives eventually become major organizations. Some of the problems and ineffectiveness would be avoided if there were better metrics and an efficient knowledge base.
