The Four Quandrant Chart

four_quadThe basic four quadrant matrix is the main tool of the business meeting.  It has almost become a model without exactness as every thought experiment is presented within the confines of the market +.  Whenever I have sat through a business class or business presentation, it is simply a matter of time until the main points are distilled in the veritable 2-axis chart.  I have found that all models are inaccurate and the simplification of biasing only differing values completely devalues the application of it.  Any real-world model is a multi-faceted complexity the likes of which the model barely covers the basic implementation.  Unfortunately, the tacit human mind can do little more than compare a couple of things simultaneously and the projection of a thought through the likes of powerpoint or keynote only emphasizes this limitation.  In any event, it is a standard.  The next time the four quadrant chart is plastered onto the walls of a business meeting, try to put it into perspective.  Take the sentiments and meaning of the comparison but stretch it forward into the real world application.
