Every organization can survive and prosper only if it creates sufficient amount of aggregate value (financial, functional, emotional and spiritual) for its internal and external stakeholders. In other words, to satisfy the aggregate needs of the latter.
Obviously, relationship with a stakeholder is a two-way street; therefore, a successful and prosperous organization must receive from each of its stakeholders the maximum possible amount of aggregate value as well – according to a fundamental principle of stakeholder harmony: I give, I receive; I receive, I give – in perfect balance.
Actually, one of the key reasons of the demise of the Third Reich was precisely its inability and unwillingness (due to Nazis being national-sociopaths) to satisfy the aggregate needs of the external stakeholders of Nazi Germany.
Consequently, to understand the history of the Third Reich (especially of its spectacular and catastrophic failure), one must understand its relationships with its (especially external) stakeholders.
Which, obviously, must be identified, visualized, structured and analyzed in a uniform way (see Figure A7).
Like the description of any other object in the Nazi system (in object-oriented paradigm relationships are objects, too), the description of stakeholder relationship must begin with executive summary.
Then it is necessary to identify, structure and analyze needs of Nazi Germany (as related to the stakeholder in question) and its wants & desires (which are often different from its genuine needs). And, obviously, needs, wants & desires of the stakeholder in question.
Needs, wants and desires drive decisions made and actions taken by the Nazis and its stakeholders. Decisions and actions that either create or destroy aggregate value. Which, obviously, must be properly measured and analyzed (both ways).
Finally I will perform the “performance evaluation” of the relationship in question. Functional, of course (how efficient it was in creating and receiving aggregate value), but also legal (whether any decision and/or action of the Nazis constituted a crime).
