Fundamental Congruence Analysis
The Fundamental Congruence philosophy is premised on the discovery of the purpose of something and then designing or crafting a system and its related components in way that makes it possible for the whole to effectively achieve its objectives without individual components interfering and undermining the relevance and wellbeing of other components or negatively affecting the whole structure/unit.
In order for us to clearly understand and progressively make use of the Fundamental Congruence concept, we must firstly and separately analyze the meaning of the following words: 1) Fundamental 2) Congruence
Fundamentals are generally the basics or foundation of or for anything. As such, since the whole is made up of different components in order for it to serve its defined purpose,the components thereof must be in their right position and doing the right thing.
By congruence, I refer to the harmonious working together of these basic or primary components in order for them to achieve the desired results.
Let us also look at the dictionary meanings of the words Fundamental and Congruence, so that we can understand better what we are talking about.
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, Fundamental means serving as a basis supporting existence or determining essential structure or function while congruence means the quality or state of agreeing, coinciding, or being congruent.
So basically, Fundamental Congruence means a collection and arrangement of components that are fitly joined and working together to achieve a defined purpose.
The arrangement and interaction of these components must be so orderly that no component will expressly or impliedly work against the effective functioning of the other.
In order for us to clearly understand the Fundamental Congruence concept, we must come up with a congruence checklist which helps us to answer the various critical questions that are important for analyzing the relevance, design and layout of components in our structure.
The Fundamental Congruence checklist seeks to define:
1) What is this component?
2) What does it do?
3) Why does it do so?
4) What happens if it does not do so or if does not do it in the right way?
5) Where is this component situated in the anatomy?
6) Why is it situated there?
7) What happens if it is removed or moved to another place or if it is misplaced?
8) Who is in charge of this component and why?
9) How is its effectiveness assessed?
10) What happens if it is effective or not?
These ten questions will help you in designing very effective structures that helps in the easy attainment of results and mission accomplishment.
Without asking these relevant questions, there is a great likelihood of coming up with or maintaining components that interfere with the effectiveness of the other parts or even of the whole structure at the expense of the relevant stakeholders.
This checklist can be applied to any mission across the divide whether it is personal or institutional in nature. It applies to departments in an organization, ingredients in a product and even to social relations in the family or society as whole among others.

OPEN LETTER TO COMMISSIONER-GENERAL OF ZIMBABWE REPUBLIC POLICE
Dear CGP Godwin Matanga Sir,
I address you, not because I am a former policeman but as a patriotic and peace-loving Zimbabwean. I have decided not to use the proper channel to address you since I am in pain and a great shock. As enshrined in the Constitution of Zimbabwe, the Police Service must protect and secure the lives of people living in the country. And it should also maintain law and order.
I have read the gruesome murder of an innocent civilian Paul Munakopa by our police officers from Hillside Police Station in Bulawayo. Mr. Munakopa died of injuries after officers opened fire at his vehicle on Saturday 23 May 2020. It pains me to see this kind of police brutality happening daily to my fellow citizens.
Chapter 4 of the Constitution of Zimbabwe is loud and clear ‘RIGHT TO LIFE’. As told by Mr. Munakopa’s wife he was not armed or possession of any weapon. It’s now over a week you have done nothing to bring the culprit to book. Look at what is happening in Minneapolis, Minnesota in the United States of America last week, a policeman killed an unarmed man, George Floyd. In less than 48 hours the cop was fired from police service and arrested for third-degree murder. The same should happen to the late Paul case here in Zimbabwe.
A fortnight ago three female opposition activists were arrested for staging an illegal demonstration in Harare. The activists were abducted and sexually assaulted whilst in police custody. As a former policeman, I am aware sir, every accused person in police custody is subject to booking and every occurrence at a police station is recorded in the Occurrence Book. What happened to these three ladies? I am praying for your immediate resignation from the Police Service since you do not deserve to lead such a vital government department. It’s far much better to concentrate on farming at your farm. We are sick and of human abuse by Zimbabwe security agents.
Yours in pain
Bloom Tizora (Author of 2 books, blogger, writer and former Zimbabwe policeman)

Leadership | Monday Motivation With Brian Kazungu
“A rare ability to see the good and the bad in everyone and making use of the good in a way that overshadows the bad,makes you good leader.”- Brian Kazungu
Management generally means the planning, organizing, leading, directing, coordinating and controlling of resources in an environment for the common good of a given setting.
Everybody on earth is a leader and a manager of his own personal life and destiny.
As such, because you are a leader, you should therefore possess a rare ability of objectively recognizing the positives and negatives of others in any setting.
You must note that every person has got his or her own strengths and weaknesses.
It is the strengths of every individual that must be emphasized and be promoted so that the combined effect of the strengths of everybody in society can be felt.
Analyze the extremes and assess whether using and emphasizing on the good side of an individual can outweigh their bad side for the good of the person and the society as whole.
This principle can be used in choosing friends, business partners and even in managing or leading a group.
When the exposure of wrong is not malicious, there must also be an attempt to also highlight the good side of others as well.
Sometimes more of the wrong side of an individual is seen when society does not set itself to appreciate the positive side of others.
Celebrating and promoting the strengths of others than just looking at their weaknesses has got an automatic ripple effect towards creating a stable and progressive society.
It is therefore necessary for you as a leader to possess this open-mindedness for the good of your life, the company/organisation, the community and even for the good of the state.a) Is there anyone that you believe is managing his or her personal life in a good way? What is that person doing and how is he/she doing that?b) Is there anyone you believe is a good manager or leader? Why do you think of this person in such a way?
b) Have you ever tried to appreciate that individual’s goodness in person? Please do that if you can!
c) Pray for the person so that he or she can keep up the good work.
1Timothy 2:1-2 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. KJV
