Unicist thinking


Essential and Functional Concepts to manage Nature

The evolution of living beings is regulated by their essential concepts. It includes an action generating functional sub-concept and an energy conservation contractive sub-concept.

The most difficult human task is the introspection to apprehend the essential concept of a given reality or a living being. It requires reflection, the validation of the conclusions and a long period of accurate prognostics.

Essential concepts cannot be falsified because of their intrinsic characteristic of being essential.

The essential concept’s functional sub-concept is a concept in itself. It includes an action generating verbal function, an energy conservation adverbial function and a purpose defining its vital functionality.

When approaching a functional concept, its action is observed, its conservation is perceived and the purpose is intuited.

The action, conservation and expansion functions define a set. The less perceivable element of such set defines how to approach a concept. The perception of the purpose requires an intuitive approach. Therefore a functional concept must be approached intuitively.

The verbal function of an essential concept is a functional purpose that requires an intuitive approach.

The adverbial function – the energy conservation function – of an essential concept is a concept in itself; it can only be intuited.

The vital function defines de ultimate purpose of the living being or complex reality.

Everyone can use unicist thinking to make decisions

Decisions have been made when they have been implemented. Before their implementation they are just hypothetical wishes.

The speed of decision making depends on the type of logical thinking of individuals. It has to be considered that speed is defined by the chronological lap between a new fact and the implemented real action to exert accurate influence.

The more evolved the logical thinking of individuals the higher the speed of action:

1) Analogical thinking drives to no decisions because personal needs and beliefs prevail. The speed is “0” (zero)

2) Operational thinking requires making the necessary technical analytical studies to define the problem and the possible solution. This is considered the standard time for decision making.

3) Analytical thinking allows focusing the operational technical analytical studies. This doubles the speed of operational thinking.

4) Systemic (Scientific) thinking focuses on a specific operation which reduces the cost of the preparation of decision making based on the existence of a hypothesis for a solution. This doubles the speed of analytical thinking.

5) Conceptual thinking provides the ontological structure that underlies the operation. It allows defining the essential drivers of the solution. This doubles the speed of systemic thinking.

6) Unicist thinking provides the understanding of the boundaries of the solution allowing the development of a plan B (including an entropy inhibitor) and a plan C (including a catalyst). This doubles the speed of conceptual thinking.

Conclusion

Internal speed cannot be accelerated without producing paradoxical results.

Internal speed evolves with the individual but a sudden acceleration drives individuals towards analogical thinking.

It has to be considered that the mass of the population tends to use analogical thinking at work. Teamwork decisions need to accept that a train has the speed of its slowest wagon (metaphor).

The above mentioned speeds have been empirically confirmed.

If you invest the necessary time you will harvest the consequent success.

Benchmarking: Is the Unicist Standard a Rolls-Royce?

Last week, TURI’s Marketing Manager said “…the Unicist Standard is a Rolls-Royce car” provoking a harsh response of a Unicist Business Search Engine user.

This generated the need of clarifying what a Rolls-Royce is, and if dealing with the nature of businesses, to diagnose, develop future scenarios, build strategies and design organizations based on the unicist theory of evolution, is essentially analogous or not.

If you Google “unicist theory of evolution” or “unicist ontology of evolution” you will find access to all the information you need.

The questions we are posing to be able to understand Rolls-Royce’s benchmarks are:

1) What is it that it offers?
2) Why is it homologous to the Unicist Standard?
3) What other analogous cases are there in the market?

Listening to Rolls-Royce’s presentation is strongly recommended:

Please reflect on the presentation to go beyond the appearance of the products and the pre-concepts you might have.

The Unicist Research Institute researched the Rolls-Royce market 15 year ago in order to discover its ontological structure and develop homologous strategies in other markets.

In two weeks you will be able to access the answer on this blog.

Unicist Family Business Strategies – The Unicist Standard

Business-driven family companies and family-driven companies are highly conditioned by the family archetype of each culture and the solution given to the roles that this fulfills. In the cultures where the affective predominates over the economic and social role, families that have businesses are highly inefficient and are always at risk as they don’t stabilize as institutions (independently of their members).

In cultures where the roles are balanced, business-driven family companies and family-driven companies are distinct fundamentally for their capacity and speed of growth. Business-driven family companies grow more rapidly.

In cultures where the predominant roles in the family are social insertion and the economic role, families with companies have a powerful influence in the environment. Although structurally they have less capacity to grow, they compensate this with the influence exerted in the environment. In markets with imperfect competition they build very powerful empires.

When we are dealing with business-driven family companies we can state that they are more effective than family-driven companies in the active roles, which are hunting, where one goes out to seek the animal in the market, and agriculture where intensive activities are developed.

An efficiently organized business-driven family company is more effective in passive hunting where it works from the basis of the influence of the family brand, and passive agriculture where extensive is what counts.

Therefore each business-driven family company must know what market niche to occupy where it can best achieve results.

We want to highlight that in marginal markets with highly imperfect competition, these concepts have no effects in reality, which is managed by non-company relationships, where the family-driven company has the weight of the family in that society.

The Unicist Value Analysis for Continuous Improvement

The Unicist Value Analysis has been developed to reduce costs and increase quality and productivity of processes that behave as adaptive systems. This method is included in all the Business Objects that deal with costs, quality and productivity.

Value analysis began at General Electric Co. during World War II. It was developed by Lawrence Miles, Jerry Leftow, and Harry Erlicher at G.E. It was designed to deal with systemic problems.

Processes become complex when soft variables participate in them. Processes behave as adaptive systems when human components participate and the “traditional” value analysis is dysfunctional.

As soon as causes-effect relations cannot be considered as valid because there are bi-univocal cause-effect relations a different technique needs to be applied.

The Unicist Value Analysis was developed in 1981-82. The first applications were at: Citibank, Renault, Bayer and BASF. It is a method that considers the technical analytical aspects of process and the fundamentals of adaptive systems’ processes. See graph.

The fundamentals of this method are:

For its maximal strategy:

-Utility
-Systemic Functionality
-Redundancy by substitution

For its minimum strategy:

-Opportunity (Taxonomic)
-Specific functionality
-Operational redundancy

It is necessary to diagnose first what kind of a process one is dealing with.

The evolution level of a company defines the reach of the application of value analysis.
