IMT Theory 

Information Measurement Theory (IMT) was developed by Dr. Dean Kashiwagi where it was initially tested and refined in the Kashiwagi home. IMT was first published in 1991 at Arizona State University (ASU) and is now regularly offered as a class at ASU. IMT is being applied to solve problems not only within the business world but in life’s personal challenges as well. More ….. Laws

We find that there are patterns to how things change in life, for instance when we drop something it falls or when we touch a fire we are burned. Whenthese patterns are consistant and correct they are defined to be Natural Laws. Natural Laws explain why things change the way they do. They teach us that nothing is random and nothing happens by chance.  More ……… Event

An event is anything that takes time, whether it be a second, a day, or a lifetime. Examples of an event could be a class, a basketball game, a vacation or the lottery. All events have initial conditions which change over time into final conditions. Natural Laws govern   More ……… of Learning 

The Cycle of Learning is the common steps all people go through to continually perceive more information. The four steps in the cycle of learning are to perceive, process, apply and change. We are reminded in the Cycle of Learning that all information exists no matter where you go. More ……… Solution Model

Kashiwagi Solution Models (KSMs) were created to identify who an individual is with the least amount of information possible. We have observed that Type A individuals  tend to have specific tendencies/characteristics while Type C people tend to have the opposite of that tendency/characteristic. (Information/ No Information, Control / No Control, Decision Making / No Decision Making)More ……… is on my Molecule

Each person is surrounded by their environment. This environment includes everything and everyone around them. This could include: people such as family, friends, enemies, schoolmates, coworkers; Locations such as home, work, school; Possessions such as money, cars, and clothes; Characteristics More ……… & Influence

Our environment can be defined as everything around us; our friends, family, leaders, school, tragedies, co-workers…etc. There are two extremes to how we perceive our environments; influence or no influence. Influence is where we have no control over our environment or what happens to us.  More ……… Information 

To perfectly predict the outcome of an event we would need to know all the Natural Laws and all the initial conditions. Realistically no one will ever meet this requirement. Lucklily we rarely if ever have to perfectly know the final outcome, therefore do not need to know all the initial conditions or laws. More ….. Making

Many people tend to link decision making with people with intelligence, as if it is a talent or ability one can have. However through The Event Model we understand that decision making is an inefficient practice and can be a sign of less inteligence. More…..



TraditionalTraditional Standards

Traditional standard setting is a form of control and is inefficient. It is when one entity is telling another entity what to do. The traditional expectation is that through setting standards a person can get anyone to comply with their way of thinking.  More…..




Trust is the expectation of an outcome without sufficient information to support it. If you had enough information and knew the outcome, there would be no need to use trust. Therefore when you choose to trust someone or something it means that you don’t know, aremaking decisions and increasing riskMore…..





A “Silo” is a biased perception of conditions and Natural Laws. Silos tend to be difficult for outsiders to understand, have their own lingo, and require detailed, technical information. More…..






Understanding of The Event and Decision Making will help to understanding risk. Risk is what you don’t know. Risk increases with less information and more decision making. Risk is dependent upon a person’s ability to accurately predict an outcome. Meaning two people can see the same event and each will have a different level of risk. More…..




Traditionally the role of leadership has been thought to be one of motivating, inspiring, changing, and influencing their followers. The Influence vs. No Influence theory has shown us that these roles are not only inefficient but not possible. More…..
