The tricky part would be to have an empirically valid framework/reference (that is applicable across contexts) against which deviation can be measured. Also, in this approach the underlying definition of quality becomes more like 'absence of deviation' as opposed to 'presence of value'! Sometimes, the value of OD is to enable people to do sense-making or even to 'see the world in a grain of sand' (which is more poetic than logical)!

This implies that the mathematical equation becomes a representation of the contextual complexities. The implication then is that any mathematical result then represent a certain contextual complexity. If mathematical principles, systems theory, contextual work delivery delivery framework, etc are combined,therefore not a simplistic 1+1 but 1+1 representing differentiated strengths and qualities of strategy, work, people etc., the mathematics of OD and HR then becomes robust and alive. This is research we, Kontextit, have been doing for the past 14 years and now ready to go to market with. Difficult to explain all the nuances in a short message reply. pieter.marais@kontextit.com Kontextithttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08833512048259395454noreply@blogger.com
