Builds in discipline. Whether ReadAct is applied to a new endeavor (project, task, company, etc.) or an ongoing one, it compels definition and improves clarity. It may affirm the positive results of past actions or discover gaps that require attention and action. The ReadAct process can be done linearly from a beginning to an end, or joined in midstream of an ongoing enterprise. The process asks useful questions, compels needed consideration, prompts constructive action, records the trail of outcomes, and discovers needed resources, iteratively through the endeavor. The process is relentless in its methodology toward goals, yet very pliant to adaptation. Work on pieces of a problem or the whole thing with the same frame of reference. The more you use ReadAct the more it integrates all you've done.
Comprehensive yet simple. ReadAct, mindful of classical theory, emphasizes both Task and Organization needs, and promotes Effectiveness first, then Efficiency. Systematic focus on these four concerns provides a clear and complete structure of criteria based desired outcomes, the Why?, the purpose of the enterprise.
ReadAct, mindful that behavior causes outcomes, prescribes four necessary behaviors for problem solving any management, leadership or group challenge. Those four behaviors constantly respond to the Who?, What?, When?, Where?,and How? of the issue.
The Interaction of the ReadAct behaviors (like a scope) with the desired outcomes (target) diagnoses and prescribes corrective action and provides a pallate of applicable resources.
Answering all the questions helps you to see how comprehensive ReadAct is, but you have to use it to appreciate its simplicity. Four categories of desired outcomes, four behaviors. A total of eight factors to track = simplicity.
Comprehensive + Simple = Parsimonious!
