Context arises around a center or goal by extending relationships and prioritizing values. All contexts have a Organizing Center (OC), Extending Relationships (ER) and Priority Layering (PL). This basic form holds true from perception to strategic planning. Once the CRT Practitioner understands these simple context dynamics they can immediately begin to make a preliminary map of any context.
OC + ER + PL = Context
Let’s take a simple example:
Organizing Center (OC): Engineering Team
Extended Relationships: Individual Members
Priority Layering (PL): Order of Team Member capabilities matched with order of tasks.
