Term Main definition
Group

A group is created when several people or things are located, gathered, or classed together. In Org we often cluster parts and sorts of people into groups so that we can work with it, or them, in some way or another. Mostly these groups have specific names, such as the Procurement Department, a Cost Hub, or a system of processes.

Group Cost Weight

A group cost weight (GCW) is the slice of budget that an activity, task, programme, project, system, process, or a relationship dynamic will take from a “group”. In orgamatics, we often cluster various parts of Org into a group so that we can work with it in some way or another. Where such a group must decide cost, we call it a cost hub. Mostly, we link several cost hubs to a parent hub. The group cost weight is then the total cost of a cost hub, as it relates to a parent hub, expressed as a percentage. E.g., where we make a strategic programme a cost hub, and a company strategy the parent hub, then a programme cost that takes 24% of the company strategy will have a group cost weight of “.24”. Other weights that relate to the group cost weight, are absolute cost weight (ACW) and cost weight (CW). The aim of a GCW is to increase the efficiency within a system.

Group Priority Weight

A group priority weight (GPW) is the importance that you give to a group of things measured against 100 points. In orgamatics, every process belongs to a process family, and every family belongs to a system. Therefore, Org has a process hierarchy. Each process also has a purpose, which we measure through targets. We turn the purpose of every child process into a target for the parent process. In so, the targets of the parent are a summary of the targets of its child processes. We always measure all targets as a percentage against 100 points. A parent thus becomes a priority hub with parent targets. A group priority weight is the weight of a target measured against the weight of the parent target. E.g., if a target of a process has the weight of “.30”, and its parent target has a weight of “.50”, the target priority weight will be 50% of 30%, which is “.15”. In so we can know what the rank of a target is within a process family. Other weights that relate to the group priority weight, are absolute priority weight and priority weight. The aim of a GPW is to increase the efficiency of Org.

Group Time Weight

A group time weight (GTW) is the slice of time that a group of things take as measured against 100 points. In orgamatics, we often cluster various parts of Org into a group so that we can work with it in some way or another. Where such a group has the purpose of grasping time, we call it a time hub. Mostly, we link several time hubs to a parent hub. The group time weight is then the total time of all activities within a time hub, as it relates to a parent hub, expressed as a percentage. E.g., where we make a strategic programme a time hub, and a company strategy the parent hub, then a programme that takes 24% of the time of the company strategy will have a group time weight of “.24”. Other weights that relate to the group time weight, are absolute time weight and time weight. The aim of a GTW is to increase the efficiency of Org.
