COMMUNITY ANALYSIS

Community Analysis
TVM analysis has a community focus. The frequency of TVM analysis depends on the natural frequency of the subject matter and the objective of the analysis. TVM reporting aims to make the result of analysis easily accessible, convenient and timely. The purpose of TVM reporting is to facilitate decision making that improves the quality of life of a community.
Reporting Entity / Reporting Envelope
Reporting about a community is primarily about ALL about the PLACE ... it is more than about the performance of the Government of the PLACE which is an ORGANIZATION in the PLACE, albeit an important organization. A COMMUNITY is the totality of PEOPLE, the PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY and the associated NATURAL CAPITAL, and the totality of all the CREATED CAPITAL ... all the PEOPLE BUILT STRUCTURES AND SYSTEMS that are located in the PLACE.
The STATE of the PLACE depends to a great extent on the QUALITY OF LIFE of the POPULATION that is located in the PLACE.
Everything else modifies the STATE of the PLACE as initially described by reference to QUALITY OF LIFE ... either directly or indirectly.
Elements for Community Progress Analysis
The primary community elements are the following:
... People ... families
... Organizations
... Sectors
... Activities
... Programs and projects
... Events
... Resources
... Constraints
... Possibilities ... potential
Complexity
The socio-economic interactions in a community are complex ... and probably the critical determinant in the process of progress. The graphic below sets out some of the pieces of the puzzle ... people and the family, the extended family and friends ... all together are the base building block of community.
In community there are all sorts of activities that go on ... economic, cultural, spiritual. All have varying importance. All interact with each other in a multitude of ways. They all have some role in success ... or they serve to constrain and limit progress.
Governance
There is also governance. Human society creates governance ... it may be light, or not. Governance that is internal, local and relevant has some advantages over external governance that may not be respectful of local conditions. A mix of both may well be best ... and result in a favorable enabling environment.

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
