Defines the Theory of Discovery as applied to change Truth #1 – The Theory of Discovery. Theory of Discovery states that every 1 unit of change must coincide with 1 unit discovery or the value coefficient of your Change Engine will begin to deteriorate
To grow value, Discovery must be proportionally applied to Change
Theory of Discovery requires 1 Unit of Discovery to Characterize 1 Unit of Change, where the whole of Change, 1C, is divided into three fractions:
C(v) Change% that is Valuable, change that is bought and satisfies customer
C(f) Change% that is Filler, change not consumed, didn’t achieve traction
C(c) Change% that is Chaos, change that destabilizes or erodes value
The theory further states that these fractions total 100%; therefore, as the sum of Filler + Chaos goes down, Value goes up, thus:
                              C(v) =  1 - C(f) - C(c)      (i.e. value = traction – chaos).   Theory of Discovery Defined and Explained. ©2018 iiSM.ORG, All Rights Reserved. Click slide to see in context of slide deck
