Framework for global organizational structure

Everything starts with the organizational structure:

To build it we will need:

  • a list of organization types – humanity, states, religions, terrorists, charities, commercial, etc.
  • a list of all possible organizations including an internal structure where each organizationl unit adds additional motivations
  • a list of all people and their affiliations

Every organization will impose certain motivations and thus if it doesn’t it cannot be considered one. A group of people that are not bind by a common motivation is not an organization, it’s just a crowd.

Additionally each person and organization during their lifetime will go through a series of states. For humans we can identify the following states based on age:

  • Infant
  • Toddler
  • Child
  • Teenager
  • Adult

And then there is a whole list of possible states that is dictated by physical and mental state of the human body. These are listed as medical conditions in ICD-10.

For a commerical entity we may consider these states:

  • Formation
  • Normal activity
  • Termination

The military organization changes the state if it’s at war or not.

The religious organizations tend to be extreamly inflexible as their motivations are pre-defined and therefore they do not have different states. Although recent loss of interest in some religions may force them to rewrite or reinterpret the holy books to apeal to a wider population through change in motivations, that cannot be considered a change of state. It will be a completely different organization.

Each state may change motivations, imposing new ones and removing others.

After we have defined the organizational structure we will need to associate motivations with each state of each entity: their needs and their don’ts.
