Business Strategy: How many actions do you anticipate?

Time management is part of the functionality of ethical intelligence. Ethical intelligence is the “deepest” driver of human intelligence and defines the true intentions of a person. It is the main unconscious driver of human actions. It can only be measured by the consequences of the actions of an individual.

Its main characteristic is that it evolves or involves driven by the maturity of an individual. A just-born baby needs to be driven by survival ethical intelligence while a mature person that has achieved a high level of adaptiveness in the world would be driven by conceptual ethical intelligence. There is also a collective ethical intelligence that drives social behavior and is implicit in the archetype of a culture.

Time management is one of the skills that are driven by ethical intelligence. The higher the level of ethical intelligence the wider the scope of the actions and individual can plan.

 On the one end, people who are driven by the need to survive can only work here and now. On the other end, people can manage timeless strategies when they are driven by conceptual ethical intelligence. These skills expand driven by the maturity of people.

The development of strategies, anticipating what will happen, expands the ethical intelligence of an individual.  Only psychopaths or sociopaths, who use manipulation as a tool, can anticipate actions to profit from others without adding value. We recommend using the unicist strategy designer that will help you to anticipate and plan binary actions in any adaptive environment. https://www.unicist-systems.com

Unicist Strategic Attitudes in Business

The strategic attitude is based on the integration of a value adding attitude and a value earning attitude, in order to adapt to an environment. The strategic attitude is driven by the ethical intelligence an individual applies in a specific field.

Both the value adding and the value earning attitude are based on the individual’s ethical intelligence. The research on human strategic attitudes was led by Peter Belohlavek at The Unicist Research Institute.

There are four different attitudes when dealing with strategic attitudes: Difference makers, Dividers, Adders and Multipliers.

Difference Makers

Difference makers have a natural talent to build subjective value in order to increase the valuation of what is being negotiated.

The value they earn is based on the building of a value earning process created upon the value of others.

They are focused on actions driven by strong personal ideas of what they are doing.

Dividers

They are those whose attitude to adapt to reality is based on a dividing attitude.

They are natural developers of alternatives, arguments and any dualistic solution to create a reasonable doubt to generate an empty space in which to find a place to adapt.

They are natural analysts, ideologists and promoters of different solutions within conservative contexts.

Adders

They are those whose natural attitude is to add to a given situation. They are natural positive thinkers who build upon the existing reality.

They do not care to compete with others, because they use others’ ideas. They need to build within a secure environment without changing the category of what they are building upon.

They are natural industrialists and doers.

Multipliers

They are those whose natural attitude is to find the roots of a given reality so as to be able to multiply the results in analogous and homologous fields.

Their capacity of perceiving homologies makes them multipliers. They need to find the nature of “things” in order to multiply.

They are natural discoverers and developers of new paradigms to use them to multiply results.

Conclusions

Understanding the strategy building process helps people to recognize their own strengths and weaknesses when developing strategic planning. But it also helps to understand competitors’ strategy, based on the knowledge of those who lead their strategies.

Understanding the nature of the strategic approach implies being aware of the strategic attitude, the strategic ideology and the strategic action that prevail in each part. This knowledge becomes essential for business intelligence to forecast the probable moves and plans of competitors and their consequent antidotes.

The 4th Industrial Revolution requires a Conceptual Mindset

Industrial Revolutions foster and establish dominant mindsets to fulfill their purposes. A conceptual mindset is necessary to deal with the possibilities opened by the 4th Industrial Revolution in order to manage the unified field of business processes.

Mindsets of Industrial Revolutions

The discovery that the concepts people have in their minds, drive their actions and that the concepts and fundamentals that underlie business functions define the root causes of their functionality, expanded the possibilities of business management.

Therefore, conceptualization is the necessary mindset to deal with the 4th Industrial Revolution. It allows managing the unified field of business functions integrating the different aspects of the business processes including the restricted and wide contexts.

This stage requires managing the concepts of business functions to improve the adaptiveness of processes by being fully consumer/user/buyer oriented, increasing the productivity and increasing the quality to become fully reliable.

The conceptual mindset required by the 4th Industrial Revolution uses destructive and non-destructive pilot tests and uses an action-reflection-action process that includes the use of the unicist strategic approach to forecast, produce and ensure results.

The solutions are based on the ontogenetic maps of business functions that define their concepts and fundamentals. This information allows defining what is needed and comparing it with the actual state to define the actions that are necessary to achieve the established goals. The pilot tests of their implementation allow learning from the feedback.

Unicist Root Cause based Business Intelligence

The Unicist Root Cause based Business Intelligence is based on the use of unicist technologies that allow defining the information that is necessary to build competitive intelligence, critical intelligence and structural intelligence and building the context of businesses. The unicist approach integrates the three universal concepts of business intelligence:

Unicist Root Cause based Business Intelligence

1) Competitive Intelligence 
2) Critical Intelligence
3) Structural Intelligence

1. Unicist Competitive Intelligence provides the information to monitor the competitive advantages, the strengths and weaknesses of the company and the performance indicators.

2. Unicist Critical Intelligence gives access to the information that deals with risk avoidance, the internal and external opportunities and the avoidance of threats.

3. Unicist Structural Intelligence defines the existence of empty spaces to expand businesses, the organizational performance of the company and the capacity of organizational resilience.

From an operational standpoint, Unicist Business Intelligence allows defining four, inclusive, levels of information:

Level 1) Functional Information
Level 2) Behavioral Information
Level 3) Defensive Information
Level 4) Competitive Information

The main applications of Unicist Business Intelligence deal with: design of critical intelligence systems, marketing intelligence systems, competitive intelligence systems, organizational intelligence systems, business scenario building and country scenario building, among others.

Benefits of the Unicist Business Intelligence:

• Increase of sustainability 
• Decrease of volatility

The Unicist Management of Causality

Unicist Problem Causality

The unicist management of causality is based on the unicist ontology of the complex adaptive systems that describes their nature and defines the concepts that regulate their evolution.

A problem exists when a functionality, that has been defined as possible to be achieved, cannot be fulfilled.

The unicist approach to problem solving defines three types of causes that are integrated in the concept of problem causality.

  • Triggering causes: that define the operational causes that generate a problem.
  • Necessary causes: that define the root causes of the problem.
  • The limit causes: that define the boundaries of what is possible to be achieved.

Client Centered Management: the model to grow using Maximal Strategies

Client Centered Management is a model that catalyzes market expansion processes. It is part of the unicist natural organization model. The natural organization is a meta-model in itself that integrates the organization that is needed for the business and the market, the client orientation and the personalization of the work processes.

Client Centered ManagementClient Centered Management needs to be established to drive actions towards the end client and then the personal organization needs to be used in order to ensure the fulfillment of the organizational roles.

The functionality of the Client Centered Management model is driven and catalyzed by the use of business objects that save energy and make processes simpler and more effective.

You can access the unicist logical approach to businesses at:
https://www.unicist.org/scientific-collaboration/

Thus CCM is the natural model for business expansion. It has to be considered that it requires business objects driven processes and a role model that allows managing responsibilities.

CCM uses Object Driven Organization

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

The unicist object driven organization is the natural way to organize based on the knowledge of the ontogenetic maps of a business and its functions. It implies integrating business objects in the business processes that allow managing the adaptive aspects of businesses accelerating processes while saving energy.

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.

This worked well when the influence of the actions allowed dominating the environment and failed when this was not the case.

CCM is a management model that was developed to establish the rules for an optimum use of the company’s energy so as to satisfy its internal and external clients and catalyze business expansion. When talking about the external client in the company we necessarily refer to the customer and the shareholder. CCM is a meta-model to provide result-assurance, client orientation and secure added value to an organization. It is the natural model to expand businesses.

Traditional Management versus Unicist Conceptual Management

This unicist conceptual management approach upgrades, but includes, the preexisting traditional approach to business management. This upgrade is a paradigm shift in management that allowed managing root-causes, developing the conceptual design of solutions, building maximal and minimum strategies and developing the necessary actions to produce results. In other words, what the unicist conceptual management did, was upgrading the management approach to ensure the generation of value.

Traditional Management vs Unicist Conceptual Management

The unicist conceptual management approach integrates:

  1. Business Strategy: The Unicist Strategy emulates the strategy implicit in the intelligence that underlies nature and establishes a maximal strategy to grow and a minimum strategy to survive.
  2. Conceptual Design: This conceptual design defines the unified field of the functions of adaptive systems and defines their dynamic process architecture.
  3. Root-Cause Management: It manages the root-causes of problems and the root-drivers of solutions.
  4. Unicist Actions: This approach defines the actions that need to be done following a logical synchronicity in order to work as a critical mass to ensure results in adaptive environments.

Benefits of the Unicist Conceptual Management Approach:

  • +40% increase of the speed of business growth
  • +25% of increase of marketing effectiveness
  • +20% of cost saving in business processes
  • +30% of complex projects cost saving
  • 99.5% of results assurance
  • 80% of cost reduction for business process maintenance and improvement
  • +30% increase in the efficacy of the participants

This superior level of business design and management became possible due to the discovery and emulation of the intelligence that underlies nature and the discovery that concepts drive human actions. This is the management model of the XXI Century.

The Era of Conceptualization

The Era of Conceptualization became necessary after most of the operational problems became manageable by technology and became possible due to the discovery of the structure of the intelligence of nature that allowed finding the structure of the concepts that drive human actions.

The development of projects, systems or any kind of solutions in adaptive environments requires managing the concepts involved in order to ensure the results to be obtained. The conceptual design ensures the functionality of a solution.

The unicist approach to human behavior is based on the fact that human actions are driven by the concepts they have. Therefore, any time an individual becomes influenced, the “Conceptual Short-Term Memory” (CSTM) becomes activated to apprehend the “gist” of the message.

The unicist approach to human behavior is based on the fact that human actions are driven by the concepts they have. Therefore, any time an individual becomes influenced, the “Conceptual Short-Term Memory” (CSTM) becomes activated to apprehend the “gist” of the message.

Thus, unicist conceptual design becomes necessary to ensure results in adaptive environments by managing the fundamentals of the solutions, defining the necessary functions that are integrated as a unified field and ending with the definition of a dynamic process architecture.

This process includes the definition of roles, business objects and maximal and minimum synchronic actions to ensure the achievement of results.

The purpose of conceptual design is to define the process architecture of the solution. To make this solution possible, it is necessary to be able to emulate it in mind.

Emulating in mind requires envisioning the final picture of the process and the results that will be achieved. This requires having the knowledge of the fundamentals of the process and a solution thinking approach that allows building the solution.

The emulation of the solution becomes possible if the conceptual knowledge of the solution is available.

The conceptual knowledge requires managing the ontogenetic map that defines the functionality of the concept that drives the solution.

Thus conceptual design implies integrating the emulation of the solution and the conceptual knowledge of the process to build the process architecture.

It is necessary to be aware of the concept of a given reality in order to be able to assume the responsibility for producing results in adaptive environments. Those who cannot emulate the structure of concepts can only assume the responsibility of operational tasks or use their preconcepts to develop an activity.

The discovery of the behavioral objects explained how concepts guide conscious actions. They integrate the available data in the long-term memory, which includes the semantic, episodic and procedural memory. This explained that the capacity to emulate in “mind” the external reality depends on the level of conceptualization of an individual. The level of conceptualization expands through practice.

Speed defines success in the business world

Speed is the basic condition for the success of artists, professionals or companies. The technological development, among other factors, made speed a central issue in business.

Power, considered from the Physics point of view and regarded as a universal concept, is defined by the quantity of work that is done in a unit of time.

P = Work/Time

If we take a look at the most successful artists, they are the ones that can produce their “work” (art) in a quantity of events that make them fast in relation to the market possibilities.

If we analyze the alliances that are made in the business world, they all include a search for speed beyond their possible complementation or supplementation of their products or services.

In business, speed depends mainly on the knowledge one has of what is being done. The one who better knows what s/he is doing is faster than the rest. And this standard of speed is given by the market, not by the individual.

In this sense, it’s important to bear in mind that the “survivors” in the business world need to stop or slow down the speed, since they do what they can instead of what is needed.

On the other hand, the central actors of a market search for an increase in speed to be ahead of their competitors and see first in the market what others have not yet seen. Speed depends on an attitude.
