How to use a diagram to discover a brand new perspective?

The above diagram was designed in 2020 in order to test a concept called Attachance. This post offers some background information of the diagram.

This post is part of the D as Diagramming project which aims to explore the power of diagrams and diagramming. What I really want to know is about the value of diagrams for turning tacit knowledge into explicit knowledge.

This diagram produced two outcomes. First, I found an epistemological position for the Attachance perspective. Second, I turned the diagram into a meta-diagram.

Let’s talk about Strategy and Activity Theory

This post is part of the D as Diagramming project which aims to explore the power of diagrams and diagramming. What I really want to know is about the value of diagrams for turning tacit knowledge into explicit knowledge.

Thus, this post is a rough idea, not a formal proposal.

Hi Bulent,

Thanks for sharing your reflection on your own personal strategy. I just came from a Linkedin post this morning. I read some your articles about personal strategy and org dev and two videos on vimeo.

I am recently working on a project called D as Diagramming. What I really want to know is about the value of diagrams for turning tacit knowledge into explicit knowledge.

The personal strategy and the sense & change model are impressive. Keep going on the excellent work!


A By-product of the iART Framework project

This post is a short note of the Life-as-Activity framework (v2.0) which is a by-product of the iART Framework project. This time I use a method called Diagram Blending to develop the v2.0 framework. I consider this post as a part of the D as Diagramming project.

I have been paying attention to Digital Platforms and Adult Development for over ten years. As a participant of digital platforms, I am both a user, a curator, and a maker. …


A conversation with Martin Prechelmacher and Stephan Kardos

Yesterday I had a wonderful conversation with Martin Prechelmacher and Stephan Kardos on Linkedin. Prechelmacher posted his sketch of the Impact Wheel as a sustainable model for business development. Kardos shared the post, then I joined the conversation.

Prechelmacher allows me to collect the post and conversation as a case for the D as Diagramming project.

The Impact Wheel

Martin Prechelmacher is a digital-first creative entrepreneur, photographer & videographer with 10 years of experience in social media communications, co-creation, digital branding and digital customer experience.

Prechelmacher observed that there is a trend of increasing number…


The Networked Transactional Anticipatory System

This is the last one post about the iART Framework. I have talked about the three perspectives for the framework:

  • Intrapersonal Analysis
  • Interpersonal Analysis
  • Transactional Analysis

Today I want to add one more perspective:

  • Collective analysis

The above diagram presents two models of networked iART diagrams. It means two types of network structure: hub and chain.

The Hub Model

A person connects to several other people. The diagram below puts three iART diagrams together:

  • Self — Other 1
  • Self — Other 2
  • Self — Other 3

Hi Aaron, I am from Houston. Last week, I joined the Born Global event. Thanks for your great ideas on validating market opportunities.

This article is excellent too. I am recently developing a model called iART Framework (or Transactional Anticipatory System). This is an abstract model. I use the relationship of "Founder - Investor" as an example of Transactional Anticipatory System.

https://medium.com/call4/iart-diagram-network-78400c804f57

It is an early stage for this model. So I just focus on writing out rough ideas.

Today I find your story are perfect for expanding the example I mentioned above : )


How to develop new concepts with Diagram Notation?

This post is part of the D as Diagramming project which aims to explore the power of diagrams and diagramming. What I really want to know is about the value of diagrams for turning tacit knowledge into explicit knowledge.

How to turn tacit knowledge into explicit knowledge? I don’t have a systematic answer. I often coin a new term and develop it as a new concept. In this manner, I can use some short keywords to name my rough ideas. Later, I can use these names as a tool for further thinking.


A by-product of the iART Framework and my tacit knowledge about the startup activity

This post aims to introduce a new concept: The Defining Zone. If you read a previous article D as Diagramming: The iART Diagram Network, you probably notice a similar diagram.

The difference between the above diagram and the similar diagram for the article is the yellow ellipse and the text “The Defining Zone”.

The diagram below is the original diagram:
