What does the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies process do?

The Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies process creates awareness and a launch pad for a project or transaction

Please read Nicholas’s case study on how he used the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies process. The Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies process creates awareness. One can engage great opportunities that already exist, use the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies to create the awareness of the roles within each function involved in the identified project or transaction. Apply the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies process to many different scenarios!

Fill the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies spreadsheet values applicable to your scenario:

The Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies are:

  • The value of the knowledge gained          (Gains)
  • Time required to transfer knowledge and skills     (Consumption)
  • Value of time, knowledge and skills         (Production)

 Every pie consists of four functions:(What is a function?)

  • Opportunity
  • Resources
  • Expertise
  • Energy / Effort  

Every function has a specific role / roles:(What is a role?)

  • Identify the different roles applicable to each function.
  • Use each role-table in the spreadsheet to complete the roles.
  • Each role table provides space for four roles.
  • The unlocked version, available from Aleph, can facilitate more than one role and comes with a workbook.

Please use the following as a guideline in making the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies your own. Refer back to this page with the spreadsheet open for assistance:

  • The Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies are Gains, Consumption and Production
  • Identify the project or transaction   (What is a project or transaction?)
  • Total of each function percentage   (What is a function?)
  • Identify the different roles     (What is a role?)
  • The percentage of each function is automatically calculated by the percentage of the different roles.
  • The total of all the functions should be 100%, if more or less, the resources and value exchange has been over or under allocated and the roles should be re-evaluated.
  • What percentage of each role is required to complete each function?
    • On the spreadsheet, complete the table of roles and functions for each pie.
    • I have included the Gains pie role-tables as an example:

A short explanation of the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies process

A visual representation of the value exchange in a project or transaction

The Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies assists one in identifying the different functions and roles in a project or transaction.

What is a Function?

A function completes a requirement for the project, for example, the project is to “Put flowers in a vase”; a function would be to “put a vase on the table.” The functions in the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies are Opportunity, Resources, Expertise and Energy / Effort.

What is a Role?

A role is an entity needed to complete a function or part of a function. I use the word “entity”, because a role can be an individual, organization or product. Take the example of the “Put the flowers in a vase” project; a role would be the entity responsible for putting the vase on the table. A single individual can lift a vase, thus one role to complete the function. Let us say the vase weighed a 100kg, it might now require two roles to complete the function of putting the vase on the table. Many roles may be required to complete a function.

What is a Project?

A project has definite goals and outcomes. Use the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies to identify the different functions required to complete the project, and then identify the required roles to complete each function. On completing the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies for a scenario, one would have an awareness of the percentage value of each function the project consists of, as well as the percentage value of each role every function consists of.

What is a Transaction?

A transaction is an exchange of value between the different roles involved. A transaction is different from a project, take the example of the “Put the flowers in the vase” again; a project’s outcome would be, the flowers are in the vase on the table. A transactions outcome would be the different roles involved exchanged the knowledge to put the flowers in the vase on the table. In a project or transaction, different roles gain more value or less value depending on the knowledge, a specific role brings to each function. This percentage value exchange for every function, in each one of the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies, will become clear as one fills the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies spreadsheet with a specific scenario’s numbers.

The story of the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies

The Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies process was born out of desperation and a passion to transfer knowledge. Unre Visagie obtained much of the knowledge and processes from working with Hewlett Packard. Hewlett Packard is a company built on the amazing principles the state of California functions on today still, you can read more about this on Unrè personal website. Hewlett Packard taught Unrè, as a young man, that starting or restarting in life one should give to the other so that you can receive – a value exchange should happen between oneself and the individual with the knowledge required. Then an old Hollander introduced the guilds to Unre. The basic concept of the guild that is in-built in the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies process is apprenticeship. In the time of the guilds, the family paid the expert to accept their child as an apprentice in a specific craft. The student then worked very close with the master of that craft and learned from him while being of value to him in different areas.

Another story that shaped the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies process comes from Roman times. Just as the student grew in knowledge gained from the master of his craft in the times of the guilds; slaves were given knowledge in Roman times, then sold for a few tens of times more than they were bought for. Gaining knowledge increases ones worth exponentially.

Another applicable example is going on a hike. One needs to ask certain questions before one can go on a hike. For example “What kind of weather can one expect?”, “Do I need a tent?”, “What food will work best?”, “Do I need any specialized equipment?” ext. Why should ones career or business be any different? What do I need to go on my career or business hike? From which tools, expertise, knowledge and people do I need to gain knowledge?

An Introduction

Become aware of the different roles within a project or transaction.  

What percentage of those roles do you or your organization bring and what other roles might be needed to complete this project or transaction successfully? What percentage does these other roles bring.

Making the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies your own

A guide to what questions to ask and how to get the different percentage values for each role.

The Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies process assists one in understanding a transaction or project better. Every one of the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies (gains, consumption, and production) has functions (opportunity, resources, expertise and energy/effort) with different roles identified by the individual implementing the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies process. The only challenge with the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies is to identify the different roles applicable to each pie and then the percentage value-add of each role. Here is a few guiding questions to identify each role within each function for every pie:

Guidelines to identify a role and their different percentages:

  • Which resources are necessary to see the project or transaction through successfully?
    • The resources needed would be a good indication of the different roles.
  • In the project or transaction, which entities will receive value?
  • In the project or transaction, which entities will bring value?
    • Every entity would be a role; an entity can be an individual/s or organization/s.
    • According to the value received or given one can ascertain the percentage each role adds to the 100% total of each one of the different pies – Gains, Consumption and Production.
  • Which responsibilities are necessary within the project or transaction?
    • What will the responsibility be of each role?
  • Identify each individual role for the value they bring to the project or transaction.

The above is just guidelines to get one started. A workbook to accompany the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies process will be published in the near future. Aleph will publish pieces of the book on the web to get you started; the complete version will be available with the unlocked version of the Three value exchanged transaction / project Pies process.

According to The Catholic Encyclopedia, “Guilds were voluntary associations for religious, social, and commercial purposes. These associations, which attained their highest development among the Teutonic nations, especially the English, during the Middle Ages, were of four kinds:

  1. religious guilds,
  2. frith guilds,
  3. merchant guilds, and
  4. craft guilds.

The word itself, less commonly, but more correctly, written gild, was derived from the Anglo-Saxon gildan meaning "to pay", whence came the noun gegilda, "the subscribing member of a guild". In its origin the word guild is found in the sense of "idol" and also of "sacrifice", which has led some writers to connect the origin of the guilds with the sacrificial assemblies and banquets of the heathen Germanic tribes. Brentano, the first to investigate the question thoroughly, associating these facts with the importance of family relationship among Teutonic nations, considers that the guild in its earliest form was developed from the family, and that the spirit of association, being congenial to Christianity, was so fostered by the Church that the institution and development of the guilds progressed rapidly. This theory finds more favor with recent scholars than the attempts to trace the guilds back to the Roman collegia. The connection or identity of the guilds with the Carlovingian geldoniœ or confratriœ cannot be ascertained, for lack of definite information about these latter institutions, which were discouraged by the legislation of Charlemagne.” To read more about guilds go to The Catholic Encyclopedia
