Definition of the rubric
In the Organum, the “Focus” rubric defines the objectives, fixes the roadmap and ensures the follow-up.
The same applies to the projects, programs or the enterprise itself. It is important to make a clear distinction between Product and Production. Indeed, they both obey very different types of logic. In particular, the Production dimension is expressed and deployed according to a temporal logic: this is the domain of the plan, the decisions, the contingencies and the follow-up. In contrast, the Product dimension must stick to the intrinsic logic of the object to be built or transformed. If this logic is not respected, we risk exposing ourselves to a great many trials and tribulations or a poor quality result.
Even though in a project, the Product identifies itself with the “Opus” rubric of the Organum, in the framework of the initiative for an open method, the Product takes on several different aspects:
- Opus, of course, where we deposit the elements that have been capitalized on and that can be reemployed in your projects (same rubric of the Organum used by the project);
- Modus, too, as it is the method which is the object of our initiative (for a project, Modus describes how to produce);
- Syllabus, at least the training material which finds a durable place in the Praxeme corpus (in contrast to other Syllabus material, linked more to ephemeral communication).
Focus is interested in the organization of the activities needed to produce this open corpus.
Content of the rubric
Involved in the initiative for an open method, Focus covers:
- the objectives of the initiative and, in direct relationship with these objectives, the statutes of the Praxeme Institute association;
- the action plan;
- the organization of the initiative (also linked to the statutes);
- the follow-up of actions.
