In his new book, Decoding Strategy, Patrick introduces the T/3 framework as a template for discovering patterns in company data and intelligence. With an emphasis on player type, game technology and time, the T/3 framework supports a narrative on rival interaction and observation. He argues that patterns do exist in the data but the challenge is to discover the patterns. Game dimensions are identified and companies are defined as players in a game. The book offers management and individuals a possible template for understanding patterns with a view to predicting the next move in a game.
