We gather the INPUTS of an organization to DISCOVER and EXAMINE the APPLICATIONS that become the THROUGHPUTS that enhance their triple bottom line, which are then INTEGRATED in the internal and external operations to develop OUPUTS for the stakeholders whom will provide NEW INPUTS as lessons learned for the organization to continue innovating and improving their goods and services.
I = Inputs (data gathering)
D = Discover (data clustering)
E = Examine (identify patterns of information)
A = Applications (define and determine the uses of patterned information)
T = Throughputs (internalize and prototype the uses)
I = Integrate (combine internal and external strategies)
O = Outputs (deployment of goods and/or services)
N = New Inputs (consumer feedback on level of needs satisfaction)
