Review & Applications

The Spiral-derived Tree

The THEE-Tree diagram (PH'1-CHK) shows the framework for organizational achievement. It has been developed by using the 7 Modes of achievement to identify specific choices. The nature of choices and their influence on each other has been developed step by step.

In this structure, the Pragmatic Centre-CL1 is the wild card: not only does it lack a direct link to choice of values and goals, it is indifferent or doubtful about inquiry-based levels entirely. In addition, political influences on it can bypass the Accountability Centre-CL2—and will certainly do so if roles and reporting relationships are weak. See the review of how to «get action right».

ClosedTHEE Note on Derivation of the Framework 

The Spiral for strengthening the management culture (PH'1-C) revealed the requisite sequence for cumulating values of all the modes. In the Tree for organizational achievement, the same sequence applies, but the 7 modes become 7 levels. These 7 modes derived originally from the corresponding approaches to decision-making (PH'1). While the decision methods are incompatible and are applied singly, the sets of values of the achievement modes/levels are compatible and continually interact. The compatibility, at least in terms of emergence and influence, is affected by the positioning of the mode within the Spiral or the Tree. See further explanation of numbering.

Having looked at the whole picture, it is worth noting the Tree sections that contribute to getting action right. Then we can consider a paradox revealed by this structure.
