Abstract [en]

Information technology applications have to be adapted for meaningful dependable social mind to mind communication needs and purposes concerning strength, weakness, opportunity, and threat (SWOT) risks. For successful adaptation it seems to be important to dichotomize the mechanistic equipment participation in communication from analogous social understanding of the conveyed meaning intention. The first step towards this objective is to be aware of the meanings in and interrelations between below chosen keywords. The second step is to note that information is a subjective situation and a context dependent interpretation of meaning in a sensationally interpretable message or signal. The third step ―and a function dependability conditioning― is to, among a lot of expressed meanings, effectively select the appropriate ones to be controlled and audited in a life cycle management objective perspective. For that any executive manager has to relay on the very basic and in a policy express ―perhaps forgotten or redefined― contents of the six cited keywords. The main aim of this essay is to release thinking from sensational or imaginary meanings of the six keywords, and anchor them as close as possible to the responsible managers´ reality. The approach aims for complexity reduction through ‘good will’ variety integration in order aspects to override ‘bad will’ or ‘do not care’ attitudes.
