Introduction to the notion
To begin to talk about an object, whatever it may be, we need to apply categories of representation to it, either given or built a priori. This Kantian discovery is clearly applicable to organizations, enterprises, complex systems… whose reality can only be approached if we give ourselves, beforehand, an analytical grid. This grid gathers the operative notions that help us to qualify and even identify the elements of the system being studied: object, transformation, state, action, etc. A representation framework is nothing more than a structured set of such operative notions. It helps us to perceive the reality and, if it shared, to exchange more easily on this reality.
The representation framework proposed by Praxeme is the Enterprise System Topology.
Analytical grid applied to a system to organize our perception of it
Related terms: (reference) framework, representation
This definition has evolved. The previous version stated: “to organize the substance” or “the material”. It was presumptuous and, in addition, untrue: the Enterprise System Topology is not the structure of the enterprise or the system, no more than any other framework gives itself to be the structure of the domain it is being applied to. A representation framework is only an organization of the representations that we make of the system and not an organization of this system. The new definition reveals a constructivist position, more in keeping with the spirit of epistemic humility, proclaimed in the general guide.
A representation framework can be considered as a reference framework from the moment that we decide to share or to make it obligatory.
