THE COMPLEXITY OF COMMUNITY
.
THE MANY ELEMENTS OF COMMUNITY

A community is complex. When all the elements are working, a community is a good place to live. The elements work together as a complete system. In a dysfunctional community fixing one issue without fixing them all can be a waste of effort.
In a community there are opportunities, possibilities and constraints.
There are also good things ... assets, and bad things ... liabilities.

COMMUNITY SPECIFIC DETAIL MOSTLY MISSED (I)

There is complexity at the national level as well as at the community is level.
Making the elements work well at the national level is good, but they have also got to work well at the community level. In fact, if they won't work well at the community level it is mainly wasted effort.

GETTING ACCESS TO COMMUNITY DATA
Because of complexity at the community level, and the value of addressing all the relevant issues in a specific community in ways that are optimum for the community, the data structure envisioned (in around 2003) for a meaningful development database had this architecture.
While the technology has improved substantially in the years since then, the architecture for management information should be similar.
Big data should not be used to refine a better and better average ... but should be used to identify and implement the best possible initiatives for the specif place and the specific people.

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
