Open PDF ... Contents
Chapter 1 - Introduction and Context
This chapter sets out to introduce the write, establish his credibility in this subject area and the set the context for the development of True Value Metrics (TVM) or something like it. Though the book is very critical of established metrics and global socio-economic performance, the book aims to be optimistic about a future that uses better metrics!
Open PDF ... Chapter 1
Chapter 2 - How True Value Metrics Improves Quality of Life
This chapter introduces the way TVM puts data at the center of everything … but data that are about value as well as just about money. This chapter introduces the framework for analysis that is used in TVM and how with this framework there can be more decision making utility without catastrophic data overload.
Open PDF ... Chapter 2
Chapter 3 - Data Types and Attributes
Data is at the center of TVM … but exactly what data? This chapter describes different characteristics of data that are used by TVM, and the importance TVM puts on knowing about time and place in connection with all the data.
Open PDF ... Chapter 3
Chapter 4 - Analysis Methods
This chapter is about the ways in which TVM data are used in analysis … the importance of the value component as well as the money component. This chapter shows how the basic money accounting framework is used and how a community perspective is different from an organization perspective.
Open PDF ... Chapter 4
Chapter 5 - State, Progress and Performance
This chapter goes into more detail about the three core elements of TVM analysis … the state, the progress and the performance. These are modifications of the core business accounting idea of balance sheet and profit and loss account that enable the value aspect of society to be part of a similar construct. The chapter also includes the value version of costs, revenues and profits or losses.
Open PDF ... Chapter 5
Chapter 6 - Entities for Value Analysis and Reporting
This chapter describes the change in perspective that there is with TVM compared to the organization perspective that dominates business money accounting, and organization centric performance analysis. TVM makes people and the performance of the community central to the metrics.
Open PDF ... Chapter 6
Chapter 7 - Enabling Technology
This is a short chapter. This chapter does not attempt to describe technology, but merely to alert the reader to the idea that technology is extremely powerful and can enable data analysis in ways that were impossible just a few years ago. It also alerts the reader to some of the issues that are emerging related to information infrastructure.
Open PDF ... Chapter 7
Chapter 8 - Using True Value Metrics
This chapter is a primer on how TVM can be used by anyone anywhere. For some readers this may the the only chapter they bother with … so it aims to be practical while having enough of the driving concept of TVM embedded in the practical guidance. (A LOT OF WORK TO DO ON THIS CHAPTER!)

INTRODUCTION to ISSUES
A BURGESS BOOK written in 2006 to highlight the many isisues that needed to be addressed
INTRODUCTION to ISSUES There are ISSUES that have to be addressed in every society ... in every human organization ... and in every system. Most times, an effective outcome in addressing an issue cannot be achieved by a single simple 'silver bullet' but requires system thinking and addressing many ISSUES in parallel. This was the theme of much of the thinking that preceded TVM in the 1990s and into the 2000s.
This text originated in the early 1990s and resulted in a book published in 2006 to highlight the need to have multi-issue initiatives to solve complex enviro-socio-economic problems. A single bullet will not solve problems!
