A New Form of Goal Directed Intelligence

It’s extremely rare that I post to a specific article and say ‘go read this’, which is what I’m doing today.

DNA, RNA and now this molecular underpinning for specific goals also to an extent, aligns to the work I’ve done with the Organisational Evolution Model that I designed for Strategic Planning back in 2006 or so. The model that I perceived back then, also evolved to the one it is now In it, the Vision (pre-determined outcome), drives decision making. The ‘How’ of actions in response to Strategic Issues, is left to other parts of the Organisation. This article discusses how the end goal, regardless of the starting position, drives the behaviour of a cellular entity. Read the article and take stock
