    Hi Vagelis,

    Thanks so much for sharing such great paper. I quite agree with what the paper propses. In our modern world, it has become almost to easy for one to fall into the trap of a ‘fallacy of assumption’. When something may be true for one, it is not always true for the others. In this case, from my understanding, whilst a business theory may be brilliant given an assumption, it is not always ‘practical’ to put in practice in the real world. This may be due to factors such as cultural difference, political influences, and those involved’s position at Maslow’s Hierachy of Needs. The paper emphasises on negative influence at incorporation level of the theories – in my view, this is where moral responsilbilities and partialisation of analysis come into play.

    I was very interested in the area of conflict of interest and behavioral assumptions of self-interest. One of the questions we raised as a potential seminar question was “How do we manage conflict of interest when implementing Organisational Learning Practices?” Would one share knowledge with others when this knowledge is quite rightly, their Unique Sellling Point (something which may help them get ahead on the Corporate Ladder). We did not end up having a seminar about this. However, after having pondered over this, an easy answer would be to best align their interest with the incentives/ benefits of having shared their UPS.

    Nevertheless, this is not always that simple! Hence, the topic of Measurement of Results then came into my mind. In short, we ought to be very very careful when choosing the tools to Measure results – whether it be People’s performace or Production results. Choosing a fancy edge-cuting tool could very well do the opposite of taking the company to another level.

    My proposition is if we are able to explore and identify where the people involved are on Maslow’s triangle, then we may be able to clarify/ make an informed forecast of what people’s best interest are – is it money, fame, appreciation, recognition, or promotion are they after? Once we have come to realise what serve their interest best, then perhaps, we would be able to better align it with the organisation’s visions and strategies. In doing so, we can aim to improve the moral responsibilties. Additionally, we might have a better capability/ capacity to minimise Pretense Knowledge and Excessive truth claims based on partial analysis and unbalanced assumptions?(Since Moral Hazards are reduced?)

    If you like reading, may I recommend “Freakonomics”, if you haven’t already read it, I think the Chapter “Klu Klux Klan and Real-estate Agents” might have a link to this article?

    Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and thanks again for the article!!
