The Pyramid

© Dawes C. C. R. 2002

The triangle is essentially scientifically based; existing knowledge and new knowledge are derived from scientific principles. Only from this basis can the innovator know he is on firm ground and that his innovation and the artefacts that result will be reliable.

However, business studies and economics are not always testable or scientific. They involve social, economic and motivational issues which are illustrated in the model by using the triangle with a pyramid superimposed on top. The base triangle is of the nature of a fundamental law and the super imposed pyramid represents human influences that create motivation, economic considerations or indeed may create traps that interfere with the natural rotation of the triangle.
