The assembly shall decide:
The Pirate Party of NRW is committed to basic human rights such as the right to life, participation, physical integrity, water, bread, family, a reasonably modest accommodation, and equal opportunity.
In the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, including the associated islands and lakes, each person shall be granted an appropriate right to life, opportunity and participation who reaches this country, or who has taken refuge on a boat. In this respect, we ask to prohibit immoral minimum wages which come close to national socialism.

Great post, very interesting. Like it a lot.
One of the key things where many Startups fail is the cost/profit and proper price calculation.
So they have a genius idea and a strong motivation, but since everything is new to them, they have no idea about what to charge for their products. If it‘s too low, they gonna work themselves to death; if it‘s too high, no customers. A good starting point is to check your competition and charge a little less. But take care and make really sure that you can make that price. Work not only on saving like cracy, but as well on the processes that will allow you to make that price and survive. Keep in mind that it takes 20 years to build a reputation, and 5 minutes to ruin it. A Startup has no reputation at all, and so, it takes a lot of time to build a brand, the desire, and the reputation that will bring you thousands of customers comes in at last, or never.
Define a company ethics that fits your belief and let your culture develop by following that ethcis yourself, whatever you produce or what services you are offering, by any means. The stronger the guiding light, the larger the audience it can reach, and the stronger the magnet, the larger the power that your personal fan crowd can generate. In 21st century, it‘s our culture that separates us from competition. Laptops we got all.
At Dynamic Applications, our culture is based on Transparency, Privacy protection, and Participation.
And so, we build Startup Business Planners that are self-explaining, they gather no data at all, and we let the people decide about the best ideas to simulate, and the platform roadmap, in turns. It‘s free of charge, but the professional simulation builder is 25 Euro (our Apps offer all functionality for specific Startups, and they‘re micro-payment, and there‘s traditional freeware and free promo codes on Twitter). So that’s Participation.
So if they vore fun, we build fun, and if they vote seriously, we build serious solutions.
There are sacrifices, you know. I sold my car in 2017.
But if you look at it over time, it’s growing like crazy.
Founder of Dynamic Applications.
Imagine you are assigned to a team that will start and run a new venture for your company. You and your team are entrusted with funding to obtain a facility, manufacture products, hire employees, and market and sell your products. You and your team must decide everything from product pricing, to taking loans for improvements and paying expenses as you work toward the goal of building equity and net worth.
You make mistakes along your journey and in doing so learn firsthand why “cash is king” and how your venture can be profitable while tottering on the brink of bankruptcy. And while you and your team benefit from these valuable business experiences, you are never in danger of financial ruin or suffering the many other life-changing pitfalls of running a business.
Welcome to the world of simulation business training.

This is a very interesting article by Wang Zhao about fundamental blocks of System Dynamics archetypes in elaborated detail, posted by @YoungModeler.
For everyone new to the topic, a simple overview of the basic feedback loops that are common to Business Model Generation as well can be found on Wikipedia’s article about System Archetypes. As well, the basic picture of those interacting Problems-and-Success Models can be found within each Dynamic Application.
Building World Models, altogether. A great topic to discuss.
I found that management picutre on German Wikipedia, translated the picture to English, called it “Balanced Scorecard – Management”, and added that picture to the top right icons in Dynamic Applications. Finally, i’ve uploaded it to the english article on System Archetypes at Wikipedia. Where it resides until today.
How could such archetypes or “building blocks” be incorporated with Dynamic Applications? – your suggestions are highly appreciated.
For everyone interested in more detailed building blocks, see PDF Attachment at the bottom of the article by @YoungModeler, reblogged below.

Modellers face a problem: Too few of their models ever get reused. Meanwhile, many projects start by building a new model from scratch requiring plenty of research to conceptualize the model structure. If we see these two aspects from the perspective of ‘supply’ and ‘demand’, is there any ‘mismatch’ in between that hinders models from reuse? If so, what could be the reason?

so here we go, a first official Escalation with a partner of Dynamic Applications.
I’ve been discussing with Microsoft about our common culture quite a while, however, in the end it became a little tedious to discuss our conflicts again and again.
Very interesting thoughts about reaching a Consensus based on fairness so that everyone in a Team is willing to participate and work on or with the results, as they believe in the participation culture.
it’s rare for an inventor to meet people where you instantly see they have more or alternative thoughts to what you offer yourself, so finally, a true source of inspiration.
my personal recommendation.
While exploring governance in business over the past couple of years I encountered both Sociocracy and Holacracy. Both of these approaches to governance have been associated with self-directed groups, and both have wrongly been identified as forms of anarchy. I’ve read about these approaches, attended introductory workshops, and participated in discussion groups – but I don’t claim expertise (I’m not a trained facilitator in either Sociocracy or Holacracy). I have applied some of what I’ve learned in daily practice, particularly consent decision-making which I feel can lead to better and faster decisions.
What is Consent Decision-Making and Why Use It?
The basic idea behind consent decisions (aka formal consensus) is that the consent process splits-the-difference between autocratic decisions that are quickly mandated, and endless debate as can be encountered in group consensus decision-making:

Eine kleine Novelle der Zeit von Martin Bernhardt.
Kennen Sie das? – iPad. Irgendwann probieren Sie dann doch mal iBooks aus. Und auf einmal verstehen Sie – das ist genau wie mit der e-Mail und dem elektronischen Kalender: es ist super gemacht.
Der Untergang, er kommt mit leisen Schritten.
Aber wovon spreche ich denn da überhaupt?
ever felt that you got so many ideas, but nobody is able to understand you? –
this is about the key to innovation in every one of us. a recommendation for everyone interested in creating a work environment for motivated, creative, and solution-finding employees. a couple of years ago, reading this document meant a lot for me.
