Process of Development

Act as unit of accomplishment

  1. An act is the unit of life or accomplishment.
  2. A system is a fixed arrangement of acts in Space and Time.
  3. An act is composed of several organisations.

Role of Pioneer

  1. The subconscious becomes conscious in the Pioneer.
  2. Through the Pioneer, the entire collective becomes conscious.
  3. The four stages of survival, growth, development and evolution are clearly seen in the life of the Pioneer.
  4. Social evolution can be seen as two phases:
    • The emergence of the Pioneer by the maturity of the subconscious into consciousness.
    • The spreading of that maturity from the Pioneer to the entire collectivity.
  5. In a mature society, the Pioneer becomes a leader whereas in an immature society, he becomes the rebel.
  6. Society destroys a Pioneer appearing ahead of time.
  7. The collective appreciates its own perfection in the individual, not his.
  8. Though the Pioneer is the conscious expression of the subconscious society, it turns against him when his appearance is too soon. It adores him when he emerges at the right time. He can act as an instrument of the society but he cannot, on his own, impose his will on the society.
    • The society is all; the Individual has no separate existence.

Multiplier Effect

  1. Multiplier effect takes place when the pioneer is accepted as a leader.
    • Pioneer maturing into leader, it multiplies.
    • Leadership multiplies, not pioneering.
  2. Its first requirement is the maturity of the community to benefit by the experience of the pioneer.
    • Maturity multiplies.
  3. It takes place only in activities that are beneficial.
    • What multiplies is benefit (not fancy).
  4. Another condition for that is it should be within the reach of the community.
    • Multiplying is within the context (not outside it.)
  5. Those who want to unleash a multiplier effect can do so by making a set of conditions available.
    • Ensure the conditions, it multiplies.
  6. One of them is the demonstration by the pioneer.
    • Pioneer demonstrates.
    • Demonstrating pioneer.
  7. It is necessary that the pioneer is one of them.
    • Demonstration is to the peer by the peer.
  8. Another is a scheme that finances the community's initiative.
    • Two indispensables - communal initiative and finance.
  9. A training programme to bridge the gap in skills is another.
    • Training bridges the gap.
  10. For wider multiplier effect, it is best to withdraw these external supports after a time.
    • Remove scaffolding, it spreads faster.

  2. Mind is the origin of organisation.
  3. There exists mental organisation, emotional organisation as well as physical organisation.

    • Above-average members lend their strength to it.
    • Below-average members draw their strength from the organisation.
    • An organisation is always superior to the individual.
  10. Complex organisational structure is the basis of integral life.

  23. A fine example of organisation that is simple to comprehend is the timetable of a school.
  24. An act is isolated.
    • Act is the unit.
  25. Several acts combining to produce a greater result in a fixed form that can be repeated is a system which becomes an essential base for organisation.
    • Organisation is systematised acts.
  26. Organisation is an act of the mind that emerges from the knowledge of the act leading to result.
    • Knowledge makes for action, organisation result.

    • Motive includes attitude and opinion even as attitude includes opinion.
    • Thought, opinion, attitude, motive are graded higher centres of human action.

Distinction between Institution and Organisation

  1. An organisation matures into an institution when the social acceptance is total.
    • Institution is socially mature organisation.
    • Organisation for social productivity (effectivity).
    • Institution is for social stability (maturity).
  2. An organisation is maintained by human or social agencies.

  4. An organisation functions through systems, individuals appointed by a central authority and is run by its rules.
    • Systems, authorised individuals, rules run an organisation.
    • An organisation must be run; an institution runs itself.
    • Systems are units of organisations.
    • Men must be empowered to run an organisation.
  5. An institution functions through custom and usage which individuals honour. The central authority here is not a person but the weight of social tradition.

    • Organisation is human creation.
  12. The best example is Society is an institution whereas government is an organisation.
    • Society as an institution; government as an organisation.
  13. Organisations of one time can give birth to institutions later.
    • Present organisation is future institution.

  15. Work is organised, values are institutionalised.
    • Work is the value of organisation.
    • Value is the work for an institution.
