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.

ORGANIZATIONS - PRIVATE SECTOR
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.
PRIVATE SECTOR ORGANIZATIONS
MANY DIFFERENT FORMS TO SUIT DIFFERENT PURPOSES AND SITUATIONS

A successful society needs ORGANIZATION and ORGANIZATIONS. There are many different forms of organization with very different socio-enviro-economic imnpact. Metrics about organizational performance have been goood for investors but less good for society and the environment. The purpose of TVA is to even this playing field.

Because of their scale they have an outsize impact on the system as a whole. The performance of companies has been a key to major change in the past and will continue into the future.

MARKETS
Markets are central to the idea of a free economy, but the way markets work in the modern enviro-socio-ecomomic system is not the way free markets really work. Understanding the way modern markets are working is an important part of understanding how the modern enviro-soci-economic system works and how things need to be changed.

ORGANIZATIONS - PUBLIC SECTOR GO TOP
MULTIPLE LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT, STATE OWNED ENTERPRISES, PROGRAMS AND PROJECTS
A successful society needs ORGANIZATION and ORGANIZATIONS. There are many different forms of organization with very different socio-enviro-economic imnpact. Metrics about organizational performance have been goood for investors but less good for society and the environment. The purpose of TVA is to even this playing field.
MULTILATERAL and INTERGOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS
like the WORLD BANK, the UNITED NATIONS, REGIONAL GROUPINGS
These institutions have an important role in providing a framework of governance that goes beyond national boundaries
Open L0200-ORGS-MLOs
GOVERNMENT INSTITUTIONS, AGENCIES AND PROGRAMS
Many things are best done by government, but these things should be done efficiently. Low efficiency, poor accounting, accountability and transparency are big issues in government. Government has a poor track record in handling corruption at all levels.

THE MILITARY
The MILITARY and the MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX have become very large and very powerful. They absorb a huge amount of wealth, and it is not clear whether the value fo the military establishment justifies these costs.
Open L0700-SI-MILITARY-INDUSTRY-COMPLEX
POLICE, COURTS AND PRISONS
The JUSTICE SYSTEM comprising POLICE, COURTS AND PRISONS needs to deter crime, to punish and to rehabilitate. Some police capabilities and performance are exceptional while some police behavior is reprehensible. These are important elements of a just and civilized society.
Open L0700-SI-POLICE


BRANDS
In many case the BRAND is more important to the consumer than the product. Brand reputation is one of the main connections that a seller has with the customer, and this is enabled and maintained by the advertising industry. Loss of brand reputation is a major risk for every organization that sells using brand identity.

INDUSTRIES ... THIS SHOULD PROBABLY BE MOVED !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Industries are similar to sectors. Compared to a sector, an industry has more focus. There may be several industries within a sector. Companies identify with an industry.

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
