Here how it goes: Imagine a system that we want to improved performance from. The system can be a biological species, a business system, or for the sake of our conversation an NBA team such as the 76ers. This system is located on a plain or a landscape that measures its performance. Any time the performance improves the system goes up to reach a peak. Anytime the performance drops, the system will go down into a valley.
