Definitions for TrueValueMetrics
What's the purpose of TVM?

The prevailing system of metrics ... financial, economic and social are seriously challenged. The numbers are part of a scheme that has proven profitable and unsustainable ... a system prone to bubble and bust ... and a system that has facilitated rapid generational decline in the economic strength of the United States without delivering great promise to those who deserve but do not have opportunity.

The primary reason for TVM is to facilitate change. A core assumption is that what gets measured gets done. By deploying TVM a lot more of what is important will be measured, and there will be greater accountability.

TVM is part of what is needed so that there can be transparency and accountability. Few actually want transparency, but it is needed as a stepping stone to accountability. TVM provides some of the metrics that make accountability possible even when the transparency is resisted.

Progress will be achieved when better decisions are made. Progress will continue when the metrics show that good decisions are achieving good outcomes.

TVM is part of a paradigm shift. TVM will disempower the cult of money profit and economic growth that has worked well to produce money wealth but without broad socio-economic progress. Instead TVM will help to deliver on the promise of a better quality of life and progress that benefits everyone.

There are thousands of people ... probably millions ... who want to do things that have value. They are recognized by the few that see them ... but there is no system that recognizes them either at the individual level or at a higher level for their effort and their accomplishment. TVM is a system that does this.

Individuals can make a huge difference ... but it will never be recognized until there are metrics that do the score keeping right.

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
