I just want to remove the impression that may have developed in some readers that I in any way "sit at the feet of" GS Chandy regarding GST just because he comes from India and some westerners are prone to think every wise guy in India is some kind of guru or bagwan. Not in my case.
Given the shared interest in general systems theory (lately abetted by dynamical systems theory ala Sante Fe Institute etc.), it made sense to test the waters to see if collaboration were indicated.
I've concluded that for now, Agile, not OPMS, suits my needs better. My school already teaches that in connection with TDD (test driven development).
However, I will continue to use the ideas of "mission" and "action plan", albeit in a refined / alternative way I think grounded in the English language (i.e. no permission or attribution required). I don't expect to learn further from GSC about the meaning of these terms as I use them in connection with the BE DO HAVE projects completion cycle (see grunch.net/synergetics/gst1.html, gst2.html and gst3.html -- all predating my association with "that OPMS guy").
