PRODUCT-ORG OFFICER SYSTEM
WANT YOUR PRODUCT
A product officer has to name, WANT and get his product.
Where no real or valuable production is occurring, one has to ask the question, does the product officer really WANT the product he is demanding? And does the staff member or members he is dealing with WANT the product?
The reason that a psychotic or otherwise evilly-intentioned person cannot achieve anything as a product officer or staff member is that he does NOT want the product to occur. The intentions of psychos are aimed at destruction and not at creation.
Such persons may SAY they want the product but this is just “PR” and a cover for their real activities.
People who are PTS (potential trouble sources by reason of connections with people antagonistic to what they are doing in life) are all too likely to slide into the valence of the antagonistic person who definitely would NOT want the product.
Thus, in an org run by or overloaded with destructive persons or PTS persons, you see a very low level of production if you see any at all. And the production is likely to be what is called “an overt product,” meaning a bad one that will not be accepted or cannot be traded or exchanged and has more waste and liability connected with it than it has value.
One has to actually WANT the product he is asking for or is trying to produce.
There may be many reasons he does not, none of which are necessarily connected with being psycho. But if it is a creative and valuable product and assists his and the survival of others and he still does not want it, then one should look for PTSness or maybe even a bit of psychosis. And at the least, some withholds.
One does not have to be in a passionate, mystic daze about wanting the product.
But one shouldn’t be moving mountains in the road of a guy trying to carry some lumber to the house site either.
The question of WANT the product has to be included in any examination of reasons why a person or an org isn’t producing.
