For those unfamiliar with Tetrad Management may find that this system can look, sound and feel pretty strange. It’s easy to mistake this video for gibberish and nonsense. The fact is that a well-respected Canadian futurist named Marshall McLuhan developed the system and international modern think tanks have been using his management system since. McLuhan is hardly mentioned in American universities today and when he is mentioned, it is usually as a historical passerby and sometimes as a whack job.
The core function of the Tetrad is to holistically view any “artifact“ (person, place or thing) as it enters or exists in a culture or media ecology. It is used in easily predicting future events.
I used a brief Tetrad to foresee the efficiency of Donald Trump’s campaign back in June 2015. It was NOT an amazing feat or phenomenal occurrence as the media pundits would have you believe and the way most Americans viewed the 2016 Election.
Horrific and as scary as this may sound to you, DJ Trump actually knows what he is doing. You have a man who has been in the media for 43 years and this schooling has probably made him one of the best prepared people in history to man-handle the American media and market segments.
DJ Trump is also a brand. From a brand perspective, he’s a winner even when he loses.
He’s planned the campaign brilliantly. I had no doubt about this from that very first speech he did in June 2015. I watched all the debates (didn’t buy or support a single thing he has said) but, watched him make mincemeat of the American media, almost single-handedly.
I’m just sayin’.
The Tetrad also gets you there, ahead of the pack. It allows managers to foresee the unseeable.
What do you do to create a Tetrad?
For the past and present, it is all about listing what has happened, what changes, and what is. For the future, one would list the likely probabilities of all potential outcomes through any and all causes and effects in a time/space continuum. Here’s a graphic you would use.
Another way to rephrase the above is to say: The Tetrad tells us the “who, where, when, what and why” of people, places and things.
First you THINK and imagine the all possibilities and make a list for each of the four boxes above. The MEDIUM in the center is how the information got to you; person to person, radio, newspaper, television or internet. Secondly, you keep writing until you get at least 50-100 possibilities, probabilities and happenings for each question (box) in the Tetrad. Then combine and contrast all the possibilities and find the best two line answer for each.
The critical questions are:
What will happen as a result of observing: (1) its reversal, (2) its obsolescence, (3) its enhancements and what (4) it retrieves from the past.
This system can be applied to any artifact or to any thing. The value of the information that arises from this type of thought process and effort is invaluable for accuracy and having the ability to creatively predicting a company’s shelf life, for instance. This gives you the knowledge in knowing how and what to do about the company years before its growth, peak or collapse happens. This is what a Tetrad is and does.
It is well know that Fidel Casto hired the Rand Corporation to answer the question: “How can I stay in Power for 40 years?”
The Rand Corporation were able to answer the question, offer accurate advice, premeditate any and all risks, advise the what and where to focus his efforts, enhancements, retrieval, and eventually his reversal.
Knowing his survival led to him succeeding 40 years ago has kept him in power until his death. The Tetrad is a mastermind system.
You may want something like this tool which is very powerful in rhe right hands. Yes, it costs money and it is very time consuming. It’s a lot of work. The greatest think tanks in the world use the Tetrad system. Another term used by futurists to predict the unfolding of future events is called: The Delphi Method.
Yes. Give us a call. We can help you with developing a Tetrad for you, your idea, your company and business. This can happen for 40 years if you like.
You can pay us $250,000 or you can pay the Rand Corporation $2,500,000. It’s your choice. 😁
