- Short Description
- Closing gaps is more than benchmarking against others, but benchmarking can be useful. Learn more through “Closing Gaps.”
- Principle in Brief Page
Long-term success comes from having superior knowledge and a culture based on principles of human progress.
No matter how well we are doing today we can always do better. Thus, we constantly seek to identify and close gaps between how we are performing today and what is possible when we fully apply Principle Based Management™.
In our application of the Republic of Science principle, we all are focused on innovating where we have the ability and passion to make the greatest contribution by sharing knowledge and challenging one another. We strive to learn at an ever-increasing rate in order to succeed and thrive in a rapidly changing world. We learn and innovate through broad knowledge networks, well-designed experiments and reality-based measures that increase our rate of transformation in an environment where innovation and challenge are expected and rewarded.
What used to be called our Knowledge Processes dimension is now Knowledge alone. We want to emphasize an even stronger commitment to principles rather than processes, systems or tools. This dimension continues to highlight the need for all kinds of knowledge.
