Memory Enhancement Ensuring Strategic Credibility
16 May 2022 – In a period in which great emphasis is placed on the complexity of governance and the issues which it is required to address, remarkably little is said of the challenges to memory. This is evident in the case of decision-makers at the highest level and for the ordinary voter expected to approve strategic decision-making. The issue has also been argued more generally (Comprehension of Numbers Challenging Global Civilization, 2014).
One possibility has been specifically addressed through recognition of “dramatic situations” typical of crises — whether recognized by leadership or familiar in narratives, fables and stories (Thirty-six Dramatic Situations faced by Global Governance? Interrelating the array of narratives, plots, agendas, stories and conspiracy theories, 2022). That argument invites further development from various perspectives.
Yet to be explained are the seeming preferences in practice for particular patterns of sets of elements, potentially of significance to the viable organization of governance — as noted previously:
- Requisite 20-fold Articulation of Operative Insights? Checklist of web resources on 20 strategies, rules, methods and insights (2018)
- Checklist of 12-fold Principles, Plans, Symbols and Concepts: web resources (2011).\
- Eliciting a 12-fold Pattern of Generic Operational Insights: recognition of memory constraints on collective strategic comprehension (2011)
- Pattern of 14-foldness as an Implicit Organizing Principle for Governance? Web resources (2021)
- Re-cognition of N-fold sets of “modes”, “ways”, “moves” and “ploys” (2021)
