It has to be considered that all human conscious actions are driven by the concepts and fundamentals an individual manages. This means that individuals always use the concept they have in mind, which might be functional or dysfunctional. The concept an individual has in mind, might explain the nature of a function, might be a pre-concept to avoid personal risks or might be an unconscious anti-concept to avoid assuming the responsibility for doing something. Concepts are the behavioral objects that guide human actions. Leaders need to manage the structure of the concept of what they are doing in order to deal with adaptive environments to ensure results.
The Unicist Standard defines the structures and the unified fields that have to be managed in an adaptive system in order to organize it and achieve the results that have been defined as possible.
This allows managing the unified field of human adaptive systems in a reasonable, understandable and provable way. The energy saving produced by the strict use of the Unicist Standard of a function exceeds 30% (experience data).
The use of the Unicist Standard is a condition for designing Strategies and Architectures. All the structural solutions, business objects and technologies follow the Unicist Standard and generate significant energy saving effects.
Ontointelligence determines the individual’s capacity to apprehend the underlying concept in a complex situation. Ontointelligence is necessary to manage reality as a unified field. This is necessary when dealing with complex adaptive systems. It is characterized and measured by: 1) Ethical Intelligence: the functionality of the individual’s “rules”; 2) Strategic Intelligence: the way an individual faces the reality to which s/he seeks to adapt. 3) Type of logical thinking: the individual’s mind mechanism used to solve the problems related to his adaptation to the environment.
Unicist thinking is a solution thinking approach that is based on approaching problems based on the universal solution given by the ontogenetic map of the concept that underlies the function that is being managed. Unicist Thinking implies beginning with a backward chaining thinking process and recycling the solution until it produces the results that have been defined as possible. Solution thinking implies beginning with the conceptual design of the solution based on the ontogenetic map of the concepts that defines the process and ending with the operational solution that can be managed by anyone.
The dualism of neural functionality makes binary approaches become the natural way to deal with reality. This dualism is functional in operational environments, ruled by cause-effect relationships. The triadic structure of reality is defined by a purpose, an active function and an energy conservation function. To apprehend this triadic structure with a binary mind it is necessary to be able to build a double dialectical approach in mind that emulates a specific reality. The disjunction “OR” is the basic rule in dualism and the conjunction “AND” is required to make a double dialectical approach.
The triadic structure of reality is defined by a purpose, an active function and an energy conservation function. To apprehend this triadic structure with a binary mind it is necessary to be able to build a double dialectical approach in mind that emulates a specific reality. This approach was named unicist double dialectical logic because it allows defining the unified field of adaptive systems in order to diagnose and influence them. It is based on the fact that in complex systems all the elements are integrated by the conjunction “AND”. Dualistic, binary, thinking hinders apprehending the nature of reality.
The explosion of information technologies, artificial intelligence and communication devices changed the role of managers and leaders. The new role of leaders requires now being able to manage the structure of the concepts of what is possible to be done in order to establish the framework for the technologies. The Era of conceptualization is here. This is what the unicist approach is about.
It has to be considered that all human conscious actions are driven by the concepts and fundamentals an individual manages. This means that individuals always use the concept they have in mind, which might be functional or dysfunctional. The concept an individual has in mind is functional when the individual was able to apprehend the actual concept and is dysfunctional when her/his subjective pre-concept displaced the real concept. The knowledge of concepts is necessary to assume the responsibility for producing results in adaptive environments. In the field of operational tasks there is no need for managing concepts or fundamentals.
The conceptual approach requires that people need to know “why” something is happening. This is unnecessary at an operational level, but is a basic question when dealing with strategic approaches. The “know why” is driven by a logical approach to reality that allows managing its concept making it reasonable, understandable and provable. When the boundaries of an activity are being expanded in order to influence a new environment, individuals need to know the concept that underlies the operational aspects. This implies understanding the unicist ontology (nature) of its concept and its dynamics.
Each entity or function has one essential concept that defines its nature. The apprehension of this concept allows defining what is possible to be achieved and how to influence the environment. The unicist conceptual design is necessary to ensure the production of results in adaptive environments. This conceptual design implies having the knowledge of the concepts of reality. The discovery that human actions are driven by the concepts people have, established a new stage in the understanding and influence of individual, institutional and social behavior. It is necessary to acknowledge that concepts define the nature of things.
