I am proposing 'new-radical' claims about how businesses work or don't work, and these claims are profound. They are logical claims based on two axioms:

1. We use closed system theories to resolve open system problems

Phew... What a hubristic moniker!

But as an attention grabber it certainly worked, as the thousands who have connected to it must attest (well that's marketing for you, or perhaps it is the starting point for complex-strategy, as I demonstrate and justify why New-Radica...

The BS stops!

In the world of motorcycles, and I raced one for six seasons, there are many people, especially off the track, who talk a big race.

I'm really intrigued by the concept of recruitment with block chain.

Is this congruent with my concept of recruit on attitude?

Kant's transcendental argument is a claim that some things must be necessary to understand the world.

The Transcendental Aesthetic was about space and time.

Planning is a closed system project, plan and control. Plenty of management thinkers have described the process, oh and don't forget to implement!
