The work we've been involved in at OutSights for the last 18 months
centers around the identification, management, and access of
organizational interaction patterns through an association relevance

The initial foundation of this work began with a recognition of the

these patterns based on association relevance with partial segments of the
patterns. See:

Creating Knowledge Objects
