Teamwork: Beware of Smart Alecks

Smart Alecks cannot add value. Maximal Strategies demand adding value to the environment to go beyond the existing boundaries of a business.

Smart Alecks are advantage takers that have an amoral behavior in order to profit from the environment. This kind of behavior is the natural response of stagnant survivors when managing businesses.

Stagnant survivors are naturally “smarties” in order to live from the environment.

They are driven by anti-intelligence and anti-intuition having no ethical rules in their behavior. They need to degrade the environment in order to justify their appropriation. When they have a high IQ, they become extremely dangerous because their critics are very smart, fallacious and well disguised.

The awareness of their actions is “zero” because they are basically driven by greed that drives them into fallacious behaviors.

One cannot deal with smart alecks because they assume no commitment with what they apparently agreed, and they always find the necessary justification for their non-fulfillment.

Their amoral behavior is sustained by accomplices in order to have the power to impose their rules. They manipulate others based on the generation of urgent needs that hinder the existence of alternative actions.

Unicist Micro-Clinics: Learning to manage complex problems

Unicist-Micro-ClinicsThe Micro Clinics develop solutions of real problems of companies. They use the Conceptual Design Methodology which uses the conceptual structures of the business functions.

These clinics give access to the unicist technology for conceptual design that ensures the functionality, the productivity and the quality assurance of the business processes that are designed.

It needs to be considered that the access to the concepts that underlie business process can only be made by participating in real cases where the participants are involved.

The observation exercises or the case-studies unavoidably drive towards fallacious understanding.

The Structure of a Micro-Clinic

I) Preparation

a) Definition of the problem to be solved
b) Pre-diagnosis of the problem to be managed

II) The Micro-clinic

  1. The Provision of the business technologies in e-book format
  2. A live micro-clinic of 8 hours
  3. Development of the conceptual design of the solution
  4. Development of the corresponding action plan.
  5. A Continuous counseling for 7 days after the micro-clinic
  6. Participants of the group: up to 25.

The Challenge of using Unicist Adaptive Project Management

The development of a new approach to manage projects became necessary to deal with adaptive systems. Adaptive systems produce actions and reactions during the development of a project that need to be managed in order to ensure the achievement of the objectives.

Adaptive Project PlanningWhile the traditional approach considers that plan B is an emergency plan to achieve goals, the unicist approach to project management considers that the plan B is superior and includes plan A, the plan C is superior than plan B but includes it, and the plan D is an abortion plan that includes the development of a succedaneum solution.

These alternative plans have to be predefined before the project begins. It is necessary to consider that the most participative alternative is given by plan A and the most “directive” alternatives are given by plan C and D.

That is why the unicist approach to project management is necessary to deal with adaptive systems that are in motion and unnecessary when dealing with systems where the adaptive aspects do not need to be considered.

The stages of the Adaptive Project Management are:

1. Process Control Centered

The process control centered manager is focused on establishing the necessary operational, administrative and control systems to monitor the process using a forward chaining design process that allows having the information on each stage of the process.

2. Authoritative Management Centered

Authoritative management includes having the capacity of controlling the processes. It implies that the manager has the vision of the problem and alternative solutions in order to define the plan C for any central aspect of a project.

3. Objects Management Centered

This level includes having the capacity of developing an authoritative management of the project. It requires that the manager be able to apprehend the complexity of the adaptive aspects of projects.

4. Process Management Centered

This level includes the capacity of developing the object management of projects. It is based on having apprehended the unified field of the project as a solution in the context where it is being developed.

Conclusion

Adaptive Project Management requires integrating project planning and project execution skills to ensure that the solutions be achieved. It is based on approaching projects based on the use of processes and objects that have proven their capacity to provide the necessary solutions. It implies having a sound systemic knowledge and the knowledge of the fundamentals that underlie the solution.

Participation in Unicist Think Tanks to develop Solutions

The Unicist Research Institute (TURI) is a private global decentralized research center specialized in complexity sciences that is focused on the research of the evolution of adaptive systems. More than 5,000 unicist ontological researches were developed since 1976 in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution.

If you are interested in participating please contact: n.i.brown@unicist.org

About the Think Tanks

The Unicist Standard for Adaptive System ResearchThink Tanks are small autonomous organizations, organized by industry, that use the technology provided by The Unicist Research Institute to manage complexity. Unicist is in charge of the quality assurance of the R&D process. Each Think Tank is organized based on the type of industry.

There are four types of Think Tanks

1) For Basic Sciences
2) For Future Research
3) For Social/Economic Long-term Planning
4) For Unicist Spin-off Implementation

Think Tanks are integrated by Doers

The research on human complex adaptive systems cannot be done through artificial experiments or simulations. It has to be developed in an environment of real action. In the unicist approach doing and researching are integrated in a unified field. That is why only “doers” can research the field of complex adaptive processes. Observers can only rationalize them.

Complexity Science Research

Complexity Sciences are defined as the scientific approach to deal with adaptive systems considering them as a unified field. The critical masses of all the interdependent elements included in the unified field of an adaptive system define its functionality. The unicist approach to complexity sciences integrates ontology, science and actions in a unified field.

Adaptive Technologies for Businesses

The available IT technologies made the development of adaptive systems meaningful. The objective of building adaptive systems is to integrate software, hardware and peopleware in adaptive work or business processes to assure the quality of the results produced.

The Unicist Logical Approach: Fundamental Analysis + Technical Analysis

Complex problem solving requires having the concept that describes the nature of the solution, the actions that need to be implemented to expand the existing boundaries of the problem and the technical knowledge to develop the minimum strategy to produce results. Concepts can be apprehended when the fundamentals of the solution have been integrated.

Knowledge Acquisition

Fundamental knowledge without technical knowledge fosters “movement fallacies”. Technical knowledge without fundamental knowledge fosters “inaction fallacies”.

It has to be considered that the intrinsic structures of fundamental knowledge and of technical knowledge are opposite to each other, but their effects are complementary to build a solution.

That is why only people who can deal with the integration of these oppositions can apprehend concepts. This is the case of the universal apparent dichotomy of yin and yang. 

The Unicist Theory, based on the discovery of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature, allowed developing the unicist ontological structure of fundamentals, which made fundamental analysis “resurrect from the ashes”.

Fundamental analysis is supposed to deal with the drivers of the nature of any entity but was transformed, probably influenced by technical analysis, into an analytic approach to standardized indicators.

The Unicist Theory provided the framework to research and discover the fundamentals of an entity and defined the structure of their integration.

The symbol of Yin and Yang, representing the TAO, necessarily emulates the structure of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature and is homologous with the Unicist Logic. If you are not aware of the scientific use of the TAO, we recommend reading the book “Tao of Physics” by Fritjof Capra.

Fundamentals are the elements that define the functionality of an entity. 

They define the structure of its unicist ontology and allow building its ontogenetic map.

Fundamental analysis is the approach that defines the limits of the possibilities of the evolution of a given reality.

Fundamentals define the boundaries implicit in the functionality of a given reality.

Technical analysis deals with the cause-effect relation between “variables” that have been identified making a systemic compromise.

The discovery of the unicist ontology of evolution and the structure of concepts that regulate the evolution of living beings and their deeds established the structure for fundamental analysis integrating it with technical analysis in order to develop reliable knowledge.

Knowledge of Adaptive Systems

Technical knowledge is popular because it is based on a dualistic logic, which is functional to the use of “binary neurons”. Fundamental knowledge requires accessing a double dialectical logic, which requires an action-reflection-action process. That is why fundamental knowledge is associated with wisdom.

The purpose of a knowledge acquisition process is to obtain reliable knowledge.

Reliable knowledge is necessary when individuals are willing to ensure a minimum strategy or are exposed to uncertain or risky environments.

In every day’s activity only operational knowledge is required.

This ontology is a final synthesis of the use of fundamental and technical analysis in the world of economic, social and business behavior.

Fundamentals describe the ontology of a given reality considered as a unified field. Technical analysis describes the cause-effect relations of a reality considered as a systemic object.

When working in a known context there is only need for feedback (operational analysis), an analytic approach and intuitive / rational decision making.

Knowledge Acquisition

Technical Analysis and Fundamental Analysis are intrinsically opposite approaches for knowledge acquisition, but they are operational complements when reliable knowledge needs to be acquired. The natural pathway to knowledge acquisition begins by accessing the fundamentals, that define “what” is being done, and continues with the technical knowledge that defines “how” the operational solution will be achieved.

Technical analysis provides sufficient information and the necessary cause-effect groundings to make decisions.

When the context is uncertain the understanding of fundamentals is necessary.

Fundamentals are defined by the concepts that regulate the evolution of a fact.

Validation processes naturally degrade into fallacies when they do not include falsification processes.

Validation implies a non-destructive test and falsification is a destructive test measuring the accuracy and limits of a knowledge.

When a reliable knowledge is required to deal with minimum strategies, risks or uncertainty, the integration of technical and fundamental analysis is required.

The Business Intelligence Strategy

The driver of knowledge acquisition is the need for groundings in order to achieve a reliable knowledge to make decisions. Groundings are necessary when dealing with complexity, risk or uncertainty.

The minimum strategy is given by technical analysis to provide the necessary cause-effect knowledge. The maximal strategy to influence the environment is given by the knowledge of the fundamentals.

The catalyst to accelerate the building of reliable knowledge with a minimum strategy is conceptual knowledge. Conceptual knowledge establishes the secure limits of cause-effect knowledge.

Fundamental analysis and technical analysis provide the operational structure to achieve the objective of having reliable knowledge to make decisions.

When technical analysis is not integrated with fundamental analysis it naturally derives into analogical/hypothetical knowledge. When reliable knowledge is needed both approaches must be integrated.

Synthesis

Fundamental Analysis

Fundamental analysis is the approach that defines the limits of the possibilities of the evolution of a given reality. Fundamentals define the boundaries implicit in the functionality of that given reality.

Although adaptive systems and complex systems have open boundaries, they can only be managed when limits have been defined.

Defining limits based on the fundamentals of a given reality implies dealing with its nature and accepting its evolution laws. In the short or the long run the evolution of a given reality will drive towards its nature.

Fundamental analysis provides the tools to describe the nature of a reality in order to forecast its evolution. Evolution can be inhibited and catalyzed by human actions; but it cannot be changed.

Technical Analysis

Technical analysis deals with the cause-effect relation between “variables” that have been identified by making a systemic compromise.

In order to be able to manage a reality in everyday actions it is necessary to define it with systemic tools.

Systemic tools are based on cause-effect relations and therefore the result of transforming a complex reality into a simple system downgrades the possibilities of success. In technical analysis success becomes probabilistic.

Fundamental analysis defines the possibilities (0 or 1) and technical analysis defines the probabilities (from 0 to 1).

Fundamental analysis has been downgraded during the last 30 years. As there were no objective tools to approach it, it was considered as the “subjective” aspects of technical analysis.

The discovery of the unicist ontology of evolution and the structure of the concept that regulate the evolution of living beings and their deeds, established the structure for fundamental analysis integrating it with technical analysis in order to develop reliable knowledge.

The unicist approach to concepts, pre-concepts and anti-concepts

A concept is a “complex” entity in itself. People who know the concept of something have the knowledge of the possibilities and the evolution of a specific reality.

The Time Course of the Insight EffectThere are two elements that hinder its apprehension for those who are focused on their personal benefit:

  1. Being focused on one’s needs requires dualistic thinking (implicit in the dialectics of Hegel and Marx). It implies the use of disjunctions and the absence of the necessary conjunctions.  Thus the individual is transformed into an observer who cannot emulate a concept in mind because he is not integrated with the external reality. Dualism hinders the apprehension of concepts.
    http://www.unicist.net/clipboard/
  2. Genetic behavior inhibits understanding others to profit from them. http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=is-altruism-a-genetic-trait

Pre-concept are conceptual constructions to avoid one’s personal risks. Anti-concepts are the entities that destroy concepts. They work like anti-matter deals with matter.

Gamma waves are the waves that appear when an extreme level of consciousness is achieved. We use a reflection process, action-reflection-action, which allows accessing concepts. It has to occur in real value adding actions to be effective.

It is a precise methodology to access gamma brain waves to use concepts and build strategies. We develop this to work in the field of businesses and future scenarios.

Accessing the following links you will see other homologous description of the concept of gamma waves.

Zen Monks
http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=zen-gamma
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PAEOsUKnvQ

Anti-intuition is an intuitive perception that produces paradoxical results. Paradoxical results imply the self-destruction of the individual or of the goal that wants to be achieved. It is triggered by anti-intelligence.

That is why complexity is only for giving people. Takers can only rationalize concepts but cannot manage accordingly. Giving in business implies giving first and profiting from the counterpart. It is not a utopia.

The Unicist Double Dialectical Logic to deal with Complexity

Complexity in Businesses

It is necessary to define complexity in the field of business. It needs to be understood to develop and use adaptive systems:

Knowledge of Adaptive SystemsWhen you have to add 1 + 1 the problem is simple; 1 + 1 = 2. There is only one possible solution and all you have to do is follow a method.

But the problem becomes complex if you reverse the equation (2 = ???) because you need to produce a result. In this case there are infinite solutions and the problem is complex because you have to find the equation that optimizes the process of producing results. That is why using methods is simple but ensuring results is complex.

We define a complex system as an open system, which defines the functionality of a unified field through the conjunction of objects and/or subsystems.

Complexity Science Organizations

There are three main organizations in the world that are fully focused on complexity science and its application in the field of human complex adaptive systems.

We strongly recommend comparing their approaches to choose the one that is functional to your needs. We suggest beginning by accessing their institutional page to apprehend the concept of adaptiveness they manage:

Dealing with Businesses as Complex Adaptive Systems

Businesses are typical adaptive systems. Businesses need to adapt to the environment in order to achieve their goals.

The Unicist Logical Approach allows emulating the dynamics of a business in mind that allows managing it as an adaptive system. Thus this approach permits defining reliable scenarios, develop diagnoses, build strategies and design business architectures.

The more adaptive a system is, the less energy it consumes to generate a predefined value. Adaptive systems require using predictors to deal with the adaptive aspects of the reality that is being managed. This requires using a unicist logical approach to define the rules that regulate adaptiveness and allow designing the architecture of the system.

Designing adaptive systems implies dealing with the complexity of such systems and developing operational solutions that can be managed by everyone to expand businesses and save energy. Complexity science can be defined as the scientific approach to complex adaptive systems.

The Unicist Logical Approach to Complexity Sciences

Learn about the Unicist Logical Approach at: http://www.unicist.net/clipboard

The unicist logical approach manages the adaptive aspects of business as unified fields based on the knowledge of their ontogenetic maps.

The knowledge of the ontogenetic map of a business, its market and the context allowed managing the fundamentals that define the possibilities of business actions.

The future scenario building became possible based on the knowledge of the ontology of evolution and the ontogenetic maps of a business and its restricted and wide contexts.

This knowledge allowed defining synergic maximal strategies, to expand beyond the boundaries of a business, and minimum strategies to work within them.

Adaptive business processes became reliable based on the use of ontology based business objects. The use of objects upgraded the role of human work in business.

The integration of fundamental analysis and technical analysis allowed building reliable business knowledge, transforming uncertainty into risk and integrating the knowledge of the possibilities of success with its probabilities.

All the solutions, business objects, technologies and knowledge provided by The Unicist Research Institute are based on the unicist logical approach and generate significant energy saving effects.

Steps to Manage Businesses as Adaptive Systems:

  1. Forecast the future of the adaptive system that is being influenced.
  2. Diagnose adaptive systems to define the possibilities of what can be achieved and how to do it.
  3. Develop the necessary strategies that allow developing both maximal strategies to expand the boundaries of the system and minimum strategies to ensure survival.
  4. Design the architecture of the solution in order to obtain the results that are necessary and possible to be achieved.

This requires having a conceptual approach to apprehend the unified field of the business and being able to transform adaptive aspects into operational solutions.

The Unicist Confederation is now expanding worldwide providing unicist object driven technologies to deal with the adaptive aspects of businesses. www.unicist.net

Unicist Education: Dealing with enterprises as adaptive systems

The unicist logical approach allowed managing the adaptive aspects of businesses by using unicist logical tools and business objects. This approach provides cross-cultural solutions based on the researches made at The Unicist Research Institute. To access the basics that sustain unicist education please access:
www.unicist.org/sdp.shtml

Complex adaptive aspects of businesses need to be learned in their dynamics which implies that they need to be learned making real applications based on the knowledge of their dynamic structure.

This is analogous to medical residencies in teaching hospitals where graduated physicians learn to manage a specialty. It has to be considered that medicine is a paradigmatic case of complexity:
http://www.massgeneral.org/education/

The Future Scenario: Static vs. Dynamic Learning Processes

Unicist EducationThe superior education in business management provided an empirical operational and analytical framework for business management that upgraded professionalism in the XXth century.

The static empirical model that permitted administrating businesses provided the knowledge that allowed developing the necessary information technology that became redundant with the superior educational programs. Simultaneously, the explosive R&D capacity to release new products shortened their lifecycle.

These two situations, the redundancy of operational an analytical knowledge and the acceleration of business processes, made the static empirical approach to business become functional to business operation but dysfunctional to business management.

This scenario opened new demands for superior education in businesses that are still unsatisfied.
http://www.unicistinstitute.net/blog/the-10-year-scenario-for-superior-education-in-business/

The Next Step: “teaching hospitals” in the business field

Business ResidenciesUnicist education is based on learning processes that are analogous to “teaching hospitals” based on real complex problem solving. The unicist educational model is a postgraduate model that deals with the learning of logical tools and business objects. You can access a white paper at:
www.unicist.org/deb_wpue.php

It requires having the necessary technical-analytical knowledge learned in graduate or undergraduate programs.

It requires the learning of:

1)      The building of future scenarios

2)      Diagnosing businesses

3)      Developing Unicist Strategies

4)      Building Business Architectures

The difference between the Unicist Education and the Professional Education can be synthesized in:

How do Business Viruses Work? – The case of the Virus Type A 1

Viruses are installed in organizations when the personal goals of their members prevail over the goals of the group in the case of entrepreneurs and of the mission and vision of institutions.

RNA virusViruses can be cured or palliated. When they are cured they strengthen the company and the immune system of the company.

When they are palliated but not cured they generate a chronic syndrome in the company.

Chronic syndromes of companies are considered as characteristics by butterfly companies and by those members of institutions that despite the fact that they are working in such institutions, they do not “belong” to them.

We have identified two different types of viruses in companies: Business Virus Type “A” and Business Virus Type “B”.

The virus type “A” is the virus in which the purpose of an activity is substituted by the achievement of personal benefits for the participant.

The virus type “B” is the virus in which the energy conservation function of the activity is substituted by the personal goals of a participant.

An example: The Structure of Object Driven Management

Object Driven Management implies managing the integration of the hardware, software and peopleware of a company.

This implies that the peopleware is the purpose of management. The active function is exerted by the software and the energy conservation function is given by the available hardware. Unicist Business Objects are part of the hardware.

The operational perceivable aspects are the existence of hardware and software. Peopleware is not evident, it implies intentions that cannot be observable and can only be measured by results.

As biological viruses need to be accepted by the body, business viruses need to be accepted by the organization. Therefore, in order to be accepted, business viruses need to show the same observable aspects that are already within the organization. In this case viruses necessarily show the existence of the hardware and the software of the company.

About Business Virus Type “A”

It is the virus that substitutes the purpose of a concept by a personal benefit from it.

Unicist Business Virus Type A

In the case of Object Driven Management, Virus “A” is shown as follows:

This generates the inexistence of the integration between software and hardware.

This produces anarchy or inaction within the organization and the need of an authoritarian leader to manage the conflicts produced.

This lowers productivity, quality and reliability and therefore the value generation is diminished.
