Overheard a chap at lunch talking about how worried he was regarding the ‘threat’ posed by social media to his business. So I thought I’d remind readers of the ‘five R’s.
If you wish to be satisfied regarding threat, ensure you possess five ‘R’ capabilities:
5. Riposte (OK, counter-attack)
The sea-slug has essentially NONE of these characteristics.
EDIT: rather embarrassingly I’ve given an out of date list of the 5 Rs above. I’m going to leave it extant, to remind me to double check these things.
The list should have read:
4. Rebalance/recover [which term you use all depends on how well you understand the principles of OSS]
5. Riposte/counter-attack [ditto]
The entire process is reaction. Rebalance/riposte is the process whereby one accepts damage to one’s own system, and changes the one uses it by emphasising different capabilities to the ones damaged. Still acheiving your goals.
