Applying this Dimension
The Knowledge Dimension helps us apply principles to continually learn to succeed in a rapidly changing world, by:
Creating an inclusive team environment where decision making is improved by challenge.
Using measures and good economic thinking to understand and face reality.
Building and strengthening knowledge networks.
Developing well-designed experiments that help us learn quickly.
Taking a Long-Term Perspective
Hear Charles Koch describe our long term focus and some indicators of progress.
Applying the five dimensions often requires reflection, asking questions, and discussion. Below are some prompts to get you started.
- For Everyone
- For Supervisors
Continually learning to succeed in a rapidly changing world.
- How can I improve my knowledge networks to better innovate and transform? In what ways can I better share knowledge and motivate others to do the same?
- What information, measures and principles would help me understand which parts of my work are profitable? What do I need to start, stop, change or improve?
- How can I better provide and solicit beneficial challenges and use them to help me and others improve?
- What experiments would enable us to learn how to increase profitability?
These are the Knowledege Dimension questions from “Using the Five Dimensions to Identify and Close Gaps in Your Work”
Enable every team member to learn and improve so they can better help us succeed in a rapidly changing world.
- Create an inclusive team environment where decision making is improved by soliciting and providing challenge, seeking and sharing knowledge, and identifying and closing gaps.
- Help your team experiment effectively, take profitable risks and develop good economic thinking skills.
- Develop and modify your team’s measures so they provide the information required for marginal analysis and insights that improve stewardship and profitability.
