Entity tonal and nodal associations create powerful decision making structures that enable achieving objectives and goals. Information is generally considered the primal basis for decision making. However, to affect decision making information must be communicated through an acceptable medium. Communication is the key for formulating, implementing, organizing, and controlling entity-centric purpose. Effective communication unifies and simultaneously permits environment, risk, information, and activity stratification. Organizational information characteristically flows through multiplexed communication networks to ensure appropriate employee direction and participation. Conceptually, considering the data tree structure, formal information and communication flows to and from various horizontally linked and vertically aligned nodes. Within this framework, second-tier ‘Governance Tree’ nodes reflect entity-level hubs that collect, analyze, evaluate and disseminate information.
