Every sector, every industry, has become very specialized and over a long period of time has been optimized for profit performance. Profit performance has been exceptional for decades, but too little attention has been paid to social and environmental issues. This must change. Process improvements are essential and must focus in improving social impact and environmental impact as well as merely being more profitable.

SECTORS-INDUSTRIES
Sector specialization is one of the characteristics of much of the modern economy. It has enabled a high degree of technical specialization which has been very valuable in achieving technical improvement and more technical efficiency. National and international governance institutions have tended to organize along sector lines and this has helped to promote the interestes of sectors in some cases without taking into consideration cross ector issues.
TPB Note: In my own experience most development initiatives from the World Bank, the United Nations and others have been designed with a single sector focus. They have frequently failed to deliver on their planned goals simply because they needed support from other sector activities which were weak or non-esistant. It was my experience that the success of a PLACE depended on ALL SECTORS coming together in a holistic manner, and it was my experience that the development organizations had very poor mechanisms to solve problems outside the limits of the sector or the limits of the project.
The TVM initiative addressed this problem by retaining the role of a sector from the technical perspective, but also includes STREAMS / STRANDS / STRINGS to reflect the ways in which there are FLOWS through different parts of the socio-enviro-economic system.

SECTOR / INDUSTRY
The economy has been segmented by SECTOR or INDUSTRY for a long time, and more so as specialization has created significant differences between the various segments of the econmy. This works for a simple analysis of the economy and its performance, but less so for a global complex interconnected socio-enviro-econmic system
STREAM / STRAND / STRING
For a global complex interconnected socio-enviro-econmic system, it is useful to think in terms of STREAMS or STRANDS or STRINGS which flow through many different parts of the system and in the process contribute to progress and maintenance of the system or not.
PROCESS
PROCESS is at the core of every NODE in the Socio-Envire-Economic System and therefore a critical element in determining the efficiency of the system

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
