English translation of my seminal 1997 essay on Organizational Performance.
Feel free to share, print, disseminate and teach as long as you credit me as follows: "CC-BY-NC-SA Paul Merino, The Time Hunter @SEUILS".

This is a mental model for a "DNA of Effectiveness".

This model accounts for the 4 DNA nucleotides, and also for the 2 alternating residues forming the DNA backbone - totaling 6 generic elements which I call "Doorways".

What's interesting is that the 4 Doorways here associated with DNA nucleotides represent "Value", whilst the 2 others (here associated with DNA backbone) represent "Work".

I titled this 1997 essay after its central tool "The Merino's Eye" because this is how I formed my understanding of the dynamics of Time, but it is more neutrally subtitled "The Theory Of Doorways" (TOD).

    Paul, I think your last response is a story. It is so concrete, so imaginative, so forecasting and creative. Time-knowledge space, in emulation of time-space.You are brilliant with this idea.

  • seuils Seuils Labs at Seuils Labs @hudali15 Ali thank you for your kind words and also for sharing your appreciation; it speaks volumes. This essay is an introduction to a deeper (and vision-expanding as you put it) economic view on Time and Knowledge, which combines them into a Time-Knowledge continuum called 'Doorway'. Just like my ancestors regarded Time and Space as the single concept of 'Pacha' - later on modelized as Spacetime (http://bit.ly/12ofD3x), through the Merino's Eye I regard Time and Knowledge as the single concept of Doorway. The next version will feature more of the illustrations you already liked in this one. -- Paul Merino, The Time Hunter @SEUILS 11 months ago

  • hudali15 Ali Anani, PhD, Managing Partner at Phenomena Communications Original thinking and unconventional thinking. A lovely presentation. The approach is not only an eye-opener; it is also a vision-expander. If we want to see things differently we need fresh eyes. By all means this presentation offers this.
    Turning knowledge into energy- a brilliant concept, Paul.

  • seuils Seuils Labs at Seuils Labs Florence: And I do believe you are! Let us take this story as an opportunity to illustrate the improvement analysis capability that the Merino's Eye has to offer for Service Design: The issue you just faced, when translated in Theory Of Doorways terms (TOD), can be phrased as follows: What SlideShare EARNs (eg. the PDF slider function) is poorly SHOWed. As a consequence, even tech savvy people fail to KNOW its existence, and subsequently, SlideShare fails to GIVE (ie. to DELIVER) this function. cheers, Paul -- Paul Merino, The Time Hunter @SEUILS 1 year ago

    Regarding the slides, this is actually an A4 PDF which you need to scroll up and down (using the bold, short black slider located in top right corner).

    Alternatively you can click 'Save' above document to download the PDF for reading on your preferred device.

    hope this helps, Paul
