The context for using ais the as a whole—whether or not there is a formally structured organization as such.
The multiplicity of methods in use forms the context within which any specificis used. Although methods have inherent incompatibilities and people have marked preferences, each method has values that are acceptable for those who want to get the work done.
can be understood by appreciating how the values of the various cumulate progressively in response to complexity of a work challenge.
Cumulation occurs in accord with an intuitive logic that generates a THEE Spiral. Its name is the .
As usual, moving through theinvolves a cumulation of managing abilities. Each reflects a continuous demand for the values of a method, and no management values, once incorporated, are ever given up.
With a minimal work challenge, complexity is minimal and the work output is correspondingly undemanding. There is almost nothing to be organised and no methods to handle. So the starting point for anyis the .
Thisis located in the upper part of the ellipse in the lower right quadrant of the TET.
Work that starts as needing simple outputs, can become complex if quantities and qualities change. As complexity increases, additional Cycles.are required. These emerge in in a natural orderly way in two
Cycle-1 is about reaching a point at which the work organisation has its own intrinsic coherence and self-control, and can therefore generate substantial achievements. Cycle-2 is about handling the social environment and expanding influence still further.
