How We Think About How We Work

How do we think about how we work? We rely on a few simple processes. Here is a list:

  • Progressive Improvement & Learning Process (PILP)
  • Continuous Transformation Process (CTP)
  • Deliverable Review: Initiate, Create, Review, Validate & Approve Process (ICRVA Process – “I crave a” Process)
  • Purpose: Awareness, Knowledge, Understanding, and Wisdom

Many thanks go to Alison Williams for helping me to clarify the Continuous Transformation Process (CTP).

Purpose (When Writing or Creating a Presentation)

  1. Awareness (An Overview of what is being described (Information))
  2. Knowledge (The “What” of what is being described)
  3. Understanding (The “How” of what is being described)
  4. Wisdom (Deep Knowledge and Understanding acquired through Experience)

Intended Audience Statement (Example)
