Community
professional activities Systems Planning℠ brings its consolidated experience to the wider community in an exemplar manner, with special attention to scientific rigour, understanding, and empowerment of people. As it is natural, individuals and organisations develop their autonomy by their own drive and dedication. Systems Planning℠ accompanies that by published resources or ‘live’ through teaching, mentoring, or praxis support in applied R&D projects.

Goodwill

Goodwill
Befitting its human archetype and holistic mindset, Systems Planning℠ fosters friendly, helpful, and cooperative attitudes pro bono publico. Thus, stakeholders get to think, plan, and act in full context.

Quality Position

Pro Bono Publico
Quality Systems Planning℠ is conceived and put to good use for the benefit of the wider community (e.g. common good, ethics, justice) and the same goodwill is expected of all stakeholders in all activities — e.g. educational service, cultural programmes, R&D projects. Fair play conditions have been honoured in all cooperations of Systems Planning℠ and are anticipated in all future endeavours.

Feedback

Fairplay Feedback
Systems Planning℠ stands for full bi-directional communication — for instance, feedback is a natural part of project undertakings, publications, and workshops. Nonetheless, feedback must comply with fair play quality assurance guidelines in order to be received and considered properly.

R&D Funding

R&D funding
Funding for applied R&D (e.g. case-specific problem-solving) is typically sought from the direct beneficiaries (e.g. institutions, industry, enterprise), while funding for primary R&D (e.g. theoretical problems) and consolidation R&D (e.g. scholarly works) is typically sought from public institutions or philanthropic organisations.

Systems Planning℠ works best with people and organisations who have a need and appreciation for its content and style. This selectivity together with its uniqueness and non-mainstream nature imply relatively few but well-suited cooperations.

Suitability Screening
In order to form appropriate work relationships (e.g. according to experience, knowledge, rigour, and/ or skills), it is essential to get to know people and/ or documents per se. Depending on the degree of formality required, a fitness-for-purpose or Suitability Screening℠ may be necessary.

Initial conditions

initial conditions Quality
Systems Planning℠ participants have curiosity to understand ‘how things work’ and freedom to ‘make things right’. This presupposes conscience and maturity to ‘know themselves’ and ‘know what they are looking for’.
continual education stakeholders
Youthful Minds
The initial conditions of curiosity and freedom are known as Youthful Minds™ and are further developed in a holistic mindset. Nonetheless, despite their self-evident merit, these conditions are menaced by vulgar inhibitive attitudes.

Enablers
Working with the curious and free elevates the mind and soul to exceptional heights, catering to ‘bigger pictures’ and extraordinary insight. Of particular importance are enablers such as competence (e.g. through study and practice), authority (e.g. through position), and determination (e.g. will or resolution to ‘push the envelope’).

Inhibitive Attitudes (to Youthful Minds™)

Escape from ambition/ duty — e.g. “I have no time to do better”; “I have other priorities”
Escape from change — e.g. “I know A is best, but I opt for B because it implies less change in my life”
Escape from investment — e.g. “I know A is best, but I opt for B because it is cheaper”
Escape from learning — e.g. “I do not need to learn any of this; I know enough as it is”
False support/ Escape forward — e.g. “I vote for A (although I don’t quite understand it)”
False trust/ Safety in numbers/ Herd behaviour — e.g. “I choose B because it is the top seller”

Top-tier comprehension

top-tier understanding
Curiosity to understand ‘how things work’ invites to a higher level of intellectual achievement, involving dynamic mental models that provide causal or procedural explanations as ‘working hypotheses’.
initial conditions disclosed reasoning
Shared mental models, open to inspection, review, and revision through disclosed reasoning™, elevate human conduct from a basic ‘control unit’ to educated praxis capable of questioning itself.
distinctive marks problem-based workflow
The subjective and qualitative mental models are non-testable, so they do not conform to the positivist requirements of measurement and replicability. Nonetheless, they are realistic so far as they are methodically obtained.

Quality — ποιότης

Quality home feature
Quality (ποιότης) is used appropriately as required: (a) objectively as a description of reality (ουσία/ essence or substance) in an exploratory mode and/ or (b) subjectively as ‘goodness’, ‘compliance’, or ‘performance’ with regard to explicit references, in an assessment mode.
simplicity, elegance, goodness
quality assurance
The comprehensive provisions for quality of Systems Planning℠ comprise safeguards for official practice and fair play, accompanied by a coordinated set of quality standards for guidance and ‘self-check’ — v. masterplan (Z).
