The Four Dimensional Framework is a principle-based and structured model created to measure and assess the impact individuals, groups, or issues have on the extent and probability by which the public interest can be achieved. Public interest, in this application, is being defined as the maximization of a society’s capability and well being.
Like our physical reality, there are four dimensions – Length, breadth, depth, and time, a measure of change. Zero dimensions is a point which is how many treat their view of society – a dispersal and meandering set of points with no significant interaction or influence, at least when it comes to subjects such as economics and public policy.
This framework takes an alternate perspective using these four categories:
- Length – The Relational Dimension: the lines that connect and define our relationship to one another.
- Breadth – The Scope Dimension: the geographic, temporal, social, and ecological space within which we exist and function.
- Depth – The Awareness Dimension: the knowledge and capability we possess and utilize.
- Time/Change – The Dynamic Dimension: The outcomes that materialize through our coexistence and interaction as opposed to operating in isolation.
