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.

Made in Germany: an example to understand brand power

The research on brands as semiotic objects developed at The Unicist Research Institute, allowed discovering the ontogenetic maps of brands and their power. This expanded the possibilities of exerting influence on an environment when necessary, which requires understanding the prices that need to be paid.

Brand Power“Made in Germany” is an example for brand power. It has to be considered as an “iconic symbol” that defines the central aspects of the national identity of the country. It is based on the attributes that are implicit in the collective intelligence of a society and can be considered as an iconic symbol of the culture it represents.

The objective of a brand is to influence the environment to establish an essential credibility of a promise of value. Therefore the power of a brand defines which level of value promises can be sustained in which context.

It has to be considered that a brand establishes the context for relationships. Therefore brands have to work as a negotiating object in order to fulfill their purpose. This means that they have to establish the role of the entity that is influencing the environment but also the power this role has.

That is why brands have homologous elements of negotiation processes: the construction power and the destruction power. Powerful brands generate a love-hate relationship because people “fear” the destruction power while they “love” their construction power.

What needs to be understood is that the construction power makes brands work as catalysts and their non-exerted destruction power is what works as an entropy inhibitor to sustain the construction power.

The apparent paradox is that the destruction power needs to be present in order to overcome third parties but cannot be used. If the destruction power is used, then the brand loses power and might be harmed or destroyed.

Therefore the destruction power needs to be in the mind of the perceivers of brands but the action has to be driven by construction power.

Social influence is based on the influence of the construction power which is given by the attributes a brand has that correspond to the true value promise it includes.

Solitude for actions, solitude for change & solitude of power

Solitude has different functionalities depending on the situation of a context. The leader’s final price to be paid is having an absolute solitude of power.

Solitude of PowerLeaders can share, listen, discuss or participate in any way but, at the end, those who have full responsibility for results, are alone. They have to make a decision that has to work.

The elements that integrate the maximal strategy when dealing with the solitude of power are:

1) The need of self-fulfillment of the leaders which allows them to apprehend the final picture of the achievements.

2) The capacity of dealing in an adapted way with the environment making them be perceived as influential individuals.

3) The self-criticism which is defined by their capacity of doing things “today better than yesterday”.

These elements allow leaders to face the solitude for actions.

The minimum strategy is what allows producing the necessary changes to ensure the results that depend on the capacity of a leader. The elements that integrate the minimum strategy are:

1) The capacity of leaders to find their internal power in solitude which means that they have to have the necessary self-confidence and will to assume a responsibility.

2) The capacity to dominate the environment or strictly follow another leader.

3) Accept the critics from the environment produced by the changes that are necessary to be introduced.

Leadership implies doing the necessary changes to ensure that the actions produce results.

This is self-evident when a football match is being coached. But it is also evident in business organizations when there is a strict performance management process.

Value adding: the key for learning processes

Learning processes in adults require the existence of a real problem to be solved. When there is no real problem to be solved, the learning process has no substance and the “knowledge” cannot be stored in the long term memory because it is meaningless.

Learning processes are based on the need to increase the value added to the environment so as to gain a better adaptive position for an individual.

But a learning context is required before a learning process begins.

The unicist maximal strategy of a learning process is given by the need of improvement. The existence of a driver and the real need for improvement provides the will the individual “uses” as a catalyst in order to face and solve the problems of his/her learning process.

Achieving the minimum strategy implies paying the prices to ensure learning. The price to be paid is that the individual needs to leave things aside in order to access the comprehension of a new approach.

Learning implies leaving things aside. If the problem can be solved using the preexisting knowledge there is no need for learning because the problem does not exist. Therefore it is implicit in a learning process for unsolved problems that the individual leaves aside the preexisting approach and enters the comprehension of the new approach without cutting it down to what s/he knew.

Adults only do so when they really need to solve a problem. Improvement is the active function and learning the energy conservation function.

Only people who need to improve will be able to learn. People who enter in a learning process without having a real need to improve in order to solve real problems just enter in self-fulfilling activities.

Double Dialectical Thinking to deal with triadic structures

The unicist ontogenetic intelligence of nature defines that every living being has a purpose, an active principle and an energy conservation principle.

To approach a reality integrated by three elements with a dualistic mind it is necessary to consider it as a dualistic integration of binary elements. To perceive dialectics it is necessary to have a high abstraction capacity.

Those who do not have the abstraction capacity consider the dialectical behavior based on observable facts of reality. They cannot differentiate essential correlations from cause-effect relations.

The Unicist Dialectics allows dealing with human adaptive systems managing the integration of their double dialectical behavior.

With this double dialectical approach (purpose – active function, purpose – energy conservation function) one can understand the structure of an adaptive system and its evolution.

Unicist Dialectics is based on the emulation of adaptive systems, emulating the ontogenetic intelligence of nature (purpose, active principle, energy conservation principle).

Its application to human adaptive systems made the emulation of individual, institutional and social evolution possible.

Individuals who have the necessary functional intelligence and the will to add value to an environment, and are able to see the double dialectics, develop two different actions to ensure results: on the one hand, they impulse action and on the other hand, they develop actions to inhibit entropy.

IT Architecture: The Unicist Interface Building Technology

Unicist Interface Building is the starting point of the Unicist IT Architecture in business; it defines the aesthetics of a system. It includes the hardware, software and peopleware aspects to build a natural complementation with the user

The purpose of the interface building is to provide the necessary interactivity with a system. The goal is to integrate systems with their users, like tennis rackets or skis are part of the “body” of their users.

The maximal strategy of an interface requires achieving and extreme level of aesthetics in order to complete the needs of the user. This requires that the system needs to be part of a professional approach to business in order to have a context where the integration is possible.

This makes the system desirable but it also needs to be essentially harmonic with the fundamental drivers of the users’ activities. Both conditions can be given when systems sustain the efficacy of individuals.

This methodology requires the integration of technology and art.

The Unicist Approach for Growth

Businesses, by definition, happen in the future and it has to be considered that the past and the future are not symmetric.

The unicist approach uses both fundamental and technical analytical knowledge. It deals with the future using the unicist ontology based fundamentals.

Its unicist logic allows inferring the future to diagnose, build strategies, design architectures and build business objects.

The technical analytical tools are used to operate the businesses.

It has to be considered that unicist ontology based and object driven technologies have been developed to influence the future of businesses to make growth happen.

Unicist Approach: The Power of Simplicity

Nature, as a paradigmatic complex adaptive system, is organized by objects. The Unicist Approach is based on emulating nature to manage businesses as adaptive systems.

The Unicist Approach established a new starting point to deal with the adaptive aspects of businesses to organize their expansion. It allowed doing what was not possible before.

At an operational level, this approach is materialized in the use of the Object Driven Organization which employs Business Objects to accelerate business processes and save energy. These objects are designed based on the knowledge of the ontogenetic maps of their functions and on the use of the Unicist Standard to design business processes and objects.

Object driven marketing, object driven strategy, object driven management, object driven continuous improvement, object driven negotiation and object driven leadership are paradigmatic examples of the object driven organization.

Homology between unicist ontology, atoms and biology

Before the unicist approach there was no possibility to approach businesses with a valid universal structural methodology. The unicist approach is based on the research and development of a universal model that allowed dealing with the essential structure of businesses.

This homology is just a demonstration that beginning with physics, continuing with biology and ending with human behavior the essential structures of these fields are necessarily compatible and homologous.

The objective of this synthesis is to provide the framework of the consistency between the unicist ontological approach and hard sciences to demonstrate not only that they are compatible but also their homology.

The Unicist Ontology

The unicist ontology describes the nature of reality with the structure and rules of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature. Thus it has a logical structure that allows guiding the individual in the search of the nature of something and providing the necessary language to describe it.

The ontogenetic maps describe the unicist ontological structures of the functions of some reality. These maps define the essential drivers, catalysts and inhibitors which define the natural actions of these functions.

Introduction

After the unicist ontology has been apprehended, it becomes evident that its structure is homologous to the structure of atoms and biology.

This homology allows dealing with the nature of the complex aspects of all sciences using the same unicist ontological structure defined by the ontogenetic maps to define the concept of what is needed to develop with a fully reliable approach.

Engineering, electronics, information technology, behavioral sciences, anthropology and architecture among other application fields need to use the unicist ontological structure and the corresponding ontogenetic maps in order to be apprehended in their nature. Without them concepts are just ideas and not concrete structures to be followed.

Synthesis

The ontogenetic intelligence of nature defines that every living being has a purpose, an active principle and an energy conservation principle.

Learn more at:
http://www.unicist.com/books-pages/en/uc_ontogenetic_intelligence_en6s.php

The purpose can also be defined as the substantive function, the active principle as the verbal function and the energy conservation principle as the adverbial function.

In physics atoms are defined by having a central nucleus, composed by positively charged protons and neutral neutrons, surrounded by negatively charged electrons.

The positively charged protons are homologous to the substantive function, the neutral neutrons are homologous to the adverbial function and the negatively charged electrons are homologous to the verbal function. An atom, having an equal number of protons and electrons, is electrically neutral.

Living beings are continuously evolving and involving which implies that there is always disequilibrium between their purposes and their active functions which is homologous to the disequilibrium of protons and electrons.

This disequilibrium is what defines the energy and the influence of an ontogenetic structure in the environment.

The active function and the purpose are antithetic and supplementary implying that both are charged with energy.

The energy conservation function and the purpose have a complementary relationship which is evident in atoms where the neutrons allow the integration of the protons.

The mass of an element is basically given by the nucleus of an ontological structure meaning that the mass is given by the purpose and its complementary energy conservation function. But the evolution of a living being is given by the power of the active function in the environment.

The Unicist Ontology of Biological Entities

The unicist ontology of a “biological entity” defines its structure and functionality in an environment.

The genotype defines the genetic structure of the entity that rules its evolution and generates the phenotype of the being.  The objective of the genotype is to ensure the permanence of species, its reproduction and production.

The phenotype defines the morphologic, behavioral and materialistic characteristics of the entity.

It defines the functional characteristics, the functional power of the entity and the functional assurance.

Functionality defines the effectiveness of the phenotype measured as the consequence of the adaptation of the biological entity to the environment.

Functionality is measured in the capacity of adapting and growing on the one hand, and surviving, on the other hand.

The understanding of the ontology of “biological entities” helps to follow the laws of nature when dealing with genetic engineering processes and use it to apprehend the nature of beings with “artificial life” such as institutions.
