I personally always begin with a model of a successful customer outcome.
In other words, it is difficult model your categories until you deeply
understand how your customer will define success.
From your website, it appears that you have clearly
defined your mission, and mapped the key questions you are seeking to answer.
These are key elements of your successful customer outcome.
In addition, you will need to have actual beta customers as
representative of possible contextual viewpoints, who will support the review
process for both your as-is and to-be models. Use the approved models to
determine the prototypical solution model that will transport your specific
customers from their as-is current context model to the approved to-be future
context. Develop the prototype and deliver it for review to your customer
for a performance evaluation of the developed prototype.
Prototypes and funded full-scale implementation typically
require some mathematical simulations, prior to funding.

I am a

complete name is Luis Teodoro Gutierrez (Cuban-American). My Ph.D.
is from the Georgia Institute of Technology (1974) in systems engineering and
information science. Retired from IBM with 30 years of service, have done some
now an independent researcher and writer. My favorite project is researching
global issues at the intersection of technology, solidarity, sustainability,
non-violence, and religion. I believe it is critical to make young people aware
of current global issues that may reach crisis intensity during their lifetime.
is The Pelican Web. The mission of the
website includes publishing a monthly newsletter, Solidarity, Sustainability,
and Nonviolence. The newsletter is basically a commented digest of
current research and emerging issues. I am a frequent user of Knowlege 2008 and
have a large number of links "organized" as a relational database,
but cannot converge on a stable set of sorting categories.
forward to learn more about knowledge organization.
