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.

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.
