When any or all of the three dimensions of communications are increased man achieves a jump in performance.
Gordon B. Thompson has proposed three dimensions by which the effectiveness of a communications system might be rated such as ease of access, size of information space and ease of discovery as follows:
- Ease of access to stored information
- The size of the information space shared simultaneously
- Ease of discovery and development of shared feelings (Thompson uses here the phrase ‘nascent consensus’)
When any or all of these dimensions are increased man achieves a jump in performance.
In the diagram, the telephone, book and television are plotted to suggest increases each of them yielded in each of the dimensions.
