Real World versus Fit for Purpose

Measuring “Real World” for fact based Decision Making

The real world assumes fact based sources and actual dimensions for example zip codes are fact based and actual dimensions are related to the zip code.

If we acquire information from the Census Buruea we have acquired “facts”.  If we acquire information from a report, we are acquiring a sponsored report which will reflect the views of the person sponsoring the report.  Certainly some reports are derived by people who intend to acquire facts, although the scope and facts are limited to the views and understanding of the people performing the work.

Fit for Purpose

The report sponsored by anyone whether private or public sector and regardless of the people performing the work, the results must be assumed as “Fit for Purpose”.  The world has taken on this assumption about the viability of a any successful company as an example; people believe the company requires fit for purpose above the Real World in all scenarios.

However, we know that most companies are in silo’s and this introduces significant waste in an organization.  Therefore, fit for purpose is not the best approach it is an acceptable approach if the business and management systems are tightly integrated away from fit for purpose layer.


These two terms were introduced to me by an expert blogger Jim Harris via a Radio Show he hosted with a guest speaker who framed the conversation in the same way with different examples.

External Auditors – Annual Financial or Bi-annual Re-certifications

Let’s consider the external stakeholders, shareholders, investors and regulatory requirements for any company would need to be working by Real World definitions.  We might have very strategic ways of supplying both with little disruption in most cases.

Systems Approach To Management

The approach would restore systems with leverage points and feedback looks at the places where both suppliers and customers interact with an organization and employees in ways that could be determined by each company, knowing these are vital to the companies quality management systems.

Using a system simulation tool

Enabling discreet monitoring and fact based decision making using the highway analogy.


Assume that Wisdom as a Service offers the client just what I am describing beginning with a baseline assessment of the organization as it today and what we measure as a standard.  The standard is the basis for Real World when applied to your organization.

“A generic vector”

A common measurement which would be true for any population.  A group of people in a GIS code infers a true measure for people all over the world.   A vector would be set and true for all variables when applied in a model.  The population volume remains x when a modeler applies “A Variable” to the population.  A modeler doesn’t not want to add the population as a variable otherwise the model simulation will work as effectively.

“Any Vertical”

A model which can be used by any vertical market.  Notice the segmentation of a population grouping children by milestones.  Different variables apply to each of these populations.   The child populations are shown with a parent authorization true for each person in the segment.  The concept applies a filter type concept which requires a parent to have visibility and apply an authorization to use any online service.

Online Protection Framework

The above definition must be assumed for any online protection framework.  Online protection for children or victims of violence have a reasonable expectation of privacy and advertising in no way justifies any reasonable expectation other than these populations have additional safeguards and greater risk of harm to physical safety.

A per cloud

An open standard solution currently being developed as a viable option for parental authorization and a reasonable expectation of privacy.

“a 3rd Party and Platform Provider”

The following diagram infers the way information would ideally remain unique to 3rd party applications and Platform Providers when a per cloud user acquires an application from the Play Store or iTunes.

The change required for 3rd party applications and Service Providers would be to refrain from all restricted data types and only acquire “Selected Visible”.  The change supports the many laws in place which protect people from others collecting or reselling for any reason.

A Platform Provider and 3rd Party Provider consumes only non-restricted information from a per-cloud user

Mobility services need to be revisited and controls put in place at the release of applications into the mainstream through these two stores primarily.  An assumption is made that Google and Apple are managing their stores with integrity.  Therefore, understanding and changing the way these applications can damage an asset or use up the data minutes inadvertantly for users.  Well this is a responsibility for these two providers who host the stores where people acquire these applications.
