READ Academy

READ will map your organization to a System, a group of interacting, interrelated, and interdependent parts/components that form a complex and unified whole.  A System derives its properties from the product of the interaction of its parts and NOT from the action of the parts taken separately.  Your company operations constitute the parts of the System, which will now be tuned to follow the properties of a System.

“Systems’ thinking is a discipline for seeing wholes. It is a framework for seeing interrelationships rather than things, for seeing patterns of change rather than static ‘snapshots.’ It is a set of general principles — distilled over the course of the twentieth century, spanning fields as diverse as the physical and social sciences, engineering, and management…. During the last thirty years, these tools have been applied to understand a wide range of corporate, urban, regional, economic, political, ecological, and even psychological systems. And system thinking is a sensibility — for the subtle interconnectedness that gives living systems their unique character. “

– Peter Senge

“An organization is a system comprising of a various operations as sub-systems and the product of the interaction of the operations will aid the achievements of objectives, not the action of the operations taken separately.   “

                                                                        – Shah M. Siddiqui

“A system is a network of interdependent components that work together to try to accomplish the aim of the system. A system must have an aim. Without an aim, there is no system. …A system must be managed. The secret is cooperation between components toward the aim of the organization. We cannot afford the destructive effect of competition.”

– W. Edwards Deming

“Our institutions are failing because they are disobeying laws of effective organization, which their administrators do not know about, to which indeed their cultural mind is closed, because they contend that there exists and can exist no science competent to discover those laws.”
