The TameFlow Body of Knowledge Wiki

The platform we use to host this community site (discourse) also supports creating wikis. So we will try it here, and see if it works. Add your topics and comments.

This post can be edited by anyone. Give it a try.

[MB edit reason: Test to see if this is what you had in mind for organizing the Wiki. I don’t have much experience with this discourse tool, so maybe this is not the way to go!]

Click Reply and add a Topic – e.g., Flow – with a starter definition that contains a reference to Tameflow literature. In this case Tame Your Work Flow + page #; (TYWF Page 458).

Then greater depth on that topic can be added as replies; in this case, replies to the topic ‘Flow.’


We will consider that we have arrived at a state of Flow if we observe the following:

  • All work is performed according to an agreed upon prioritization.

  • Work is not subject to undue interruptions.

  • Issues are detected early, escalated and responded to rapidly.

  • Decisions are made cooperatively and with unanimity.

  • Multitasking is reduced.

  • Work Load is sustainable for everyone, and the work “flows” naturally throughout the organization.

  • Management attention is focused and effective.

  • Performance improves significantly.

  • Intellectual workers are mostly waiting for work, rather than seeing work waiting for them.

  • Workers and resources are moved as needed to support the Constraint of the moment.
