Unicist object driven business diagnostics


Adaptive System Management is a Complex Problem

When dealing with adaptive aspects of businesses it is necessary to be focused on solutions and not on problem solving. This sounds counterintuitive but only if a physician is able to cure a disease or a patient s/he will be able to diagnoses the problem. Solution thinking is the characteristics of individuals that are talented in a specific field.

“Complex problem solving requires an action-reflection-action process. This implies the involvement in the problem as a participant. Without this involvement there is no possibility to apprehend the ontological structure of the complex problem.

The learning of complex problem solving is implicitly a complex problem. Therefore the learning process requires the commitment of real problem solving adding value to the individual or organization dealing with the complex problem.

An individual cannot deal with complexity if s/he is not able to over-come the fears that are implicit in a complex problem solving process. The denial of these fears ensures the building of parallel realities and the achievement of dysfunctional results. 

Authoritarian environments foster fears to avoid losing control. Individualistic-anarchic environments foster fears to avoid the assumption of responsibilities. That is why complex problem solving and its learning process require a special context to be developed.”

The need for unicist business diagnostics

Business problems are essentially complex. A problem is complex if it implies a situation that cannot be dominated and someone assumed the responsibility to solve it.

A problem is simple if it is within the boundaries an individual dominates or, being beyond them, the individual doesn’t assume the responsibility to solve it.
1+1 = 2 is a simple problem. But if we reverse the equation assuming the responsibility of achieving the result 2 = ???, infinite solutions are possible. The apparent paradox is that there are infinite operational solutions but only one fundamental solution.

To deal with complexity individuals need to have both the technical-analytical and fundamental knowledge.

Diagnosing implies assuming the responsibility of achieving a concrete result, having the technical-analytical knowledge of the problem and the knowledge of the fundamentals, including their taxonomies, and defining the problem providing its taxonomic operational solution.

Fundamentals, as the concepts that define the unicist ontology describing the nature of a problem, work as “strange attractors” (see theory of chaos) providing the self-organization of the reality that is being influenced.

Business problems cannot be solved without fundamental knowledge because infinite solutions are not manageable. The lack of understanding of the nature of reality drives necessarily to fallacies or inaction.

A manager is, by definition, an individual who is able to manage complexity in his/her field of responsibility. Therefore diagnosing is the first task to be solved when a complex problem appears.
