MICROWORKS trouble-shooting and problem solving

The importance of taking care of small and microscopic things. Every organization should have a CED = Chief Executive of Detail to take care of  small things that often are neglected or misinterpreted as meaningless or not so important. The devil lives in small things.

MOTIVATION Motivation is a term that refers to a process that elicits, controls, and sustains certain behaviors. Motivation is a group of phenomena which affect the nature of an individual's behavior, the strength of the behavior, and the persistence of the behavior. To get started, we need to be motivated!

INTUITION The ability to acquire knowledge without inference or the use of reason. Intuition provides us with beliefs that we cannot necessarily justify.  Intuition orients to new and promising but unproven possibilities. We can learn to chase for  new possibilities.  Seeking for welfare in the constant pursuit of change. An introverted intuitive type orients by images from the unconscious. Jung thought that extraverted intuitive types were likely entrepreneurs, speculators, cultural revolutionaries…

COLLABORATION Collaboration is working together to achieve a goal. It is a recursive process where two or more people or organizations work together to realize shared goals.  We see open collaboration as an effective way to improve the productivity of innovative processes.

REALITY-CHECK In philosophy, reality is the state of things as they actually exist, rather than as they may appear or might be imagined. In a wider definition, reality includes everything that is and has been, whether or not it is observable or comprehensible. A still more broad definition includes everything that has existed, exists, or will exist.  Reality is often contrasted with what is imaginary, delusional, (only) in the mind, dreams, what is abstract, what is false, or what is fictional. The truth refers to what is real, while falsity refers to what is not. Fictions are considered not real. The innovative process is a narrow line between the reality and fiction.

OBJECTIVE A goal or objective is a desired result an organization, person or a system envisions, plans and commits to achieve - a personal or organizational desired end-point in some sort of assumed development. Many people endeavor to reach goals within a finite time by setting deadlines.  A clear goal helps us to get where we want within a reasonable time frame.

WORLDVIEW A comprehensive worldview is the fundamental cognitive orientation of an individual or  organization encompassing the knowledge and point-of-view, including natural philosophy; fundamental, existential, and normative postulates; or themes, values, emotions, and ethics. Additionally, it refers to the framework of ideas and beliefs through which an individual, group or culture interprets the world and interacts with it.
According to Leo Apostel, a worldview is an ontology, or a descriptive model of the world. It should comprise these six elements:
  • An explanation of the world or problem we want to conquer
  • A futurology, answering the question "Where are we heading?"
    Values, answers to ethical questions: "What should we do?"
  • A praxeology, or methodology, or theory of action: "How should we attain our goals?"
  • An epistemology, or theory of knowledge: "What is true and false?"
  • An etiology. A constructed world-view should contain an account of its own "building blocks," its origins and construction.

ORGANIZATION The Wisdom of Crowds: Why the Many Are Smarter Than the Few and How Collective Wisdom Shapes Business, Economies, Societies and Nations. An open organization is open to anyone who agrees to abide by its purpose and principles, with complete transparency and clearly defined decision making structures, ownership patterns, and exchange mechanisms; designed, defined, and refined, by all members as part of a continual transformative process.

RISK MANAGEMENT Risk management is the identification, assessment, and prioritization of risks followed by coordinated and economical application of resources to minimize, monitor, and control the probability and/or impact of unfortunate events or to maximize the realization of opportunities. Risks can come from uncertainty in financial markets, project failures (at any phase in design, development, production, or sustainment life-cycles), legal liabilities, credit risk, accidents, natural causes and disasters as well as deliberate attack from an adversary, or events of uncertain or unpredictable root-cause.

K

KNOWLEDGE Knowledge is a familiarity with someone or something, which can include facts, information, descriptions, or skills acquired through experience or education. It can refer to the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject. It can be implicit (as with practical skill or expertise) or explicit (as with the theoretical understanding of a subject); and it can be more or less formal or systematic.

SOLUTION Problem solving is a mental process which is the concluding part of the larger problem process that includes problem finding and problem shaping where problem is defined as a state of desire for the reaching of a definite goal from a present condition that either is not directly moving toward the goal, is far from it or needs more complex logic for finding a missing description of conditions or steps toward the goal. Considered the most complex of all intellectual functions, problem solving has been defined as a higher-order cognitive process that requires the modulation and control of more routine or fundamental skills. Problem solving has two major domains: mathematical problem solving and personal problem solving where, in the second, some difficulty or barrier is encountered. Further problem solving occurs when moving from a given state to a desired goal state is needed for either living organisms or an artificial intelligence system.
