How is theory of mind useful? Perhaps to enable social pretend play

Here we challenge that view, proposing instead that ToM might be useful for driving SPP, rather than the reverse. We discuss background theory, review pertinent studies, and explain why the “ToM first” view is at least equally likely. The first form of pretend to consider is solitary PP, emerging at 12–18 months, in which one engages in three basic types of transformation: substitutes one object for another, projects imaginary characteristics onto objects, and imagines situations that do not exist (Leslie, 1987). The second form is social pretend play (SPP), which involves the same basic transformations but occurs with others, and emerges around age 3.

Many transformation initiatives focus on improving a company’s financial and operational performance from “good” (or moderate) to “great”—that is, the company is already doing well in some or most areas, yet management still sees a need to make improvements. Other companies occupy a separate category of transformation because they are in the midst of immediate, urgent crises. We refer to these as turnaround and restructuring efforts. With the business environment becoming so volatile and unpredictable, an increasing number of companies need to take dramatic actions to generate rapid impact or they risk going out of business.
