Why use the Unicist Double Dialectical Logic?

The unicist double dialectical logic uses the dualistic operation of neurons to build a mental emulation of the structure of nature that allows dealing with the adaptive aspects of reality, managing the integration of their double dialectical behavior. Unicist thinking is the name given to the process that allows building the double dialectical logic.

Unicist thinking allows emulating in mind the structure of adaptive aspects of reality in order to manage them. It provides the necessary operating system to manage adaptive systems to expand the boundaries of businesses and infer future scenarios in order to adapt to them.

It is necessary to diagnose, build strategies and design business architectures. It provides the structure to understand the fundamentals of businesses and integrate the fundamental knowledge with the technical analytical knowledge to make decisions.

The unicist reflection process: action-reflection-action is the technology to be used to transform dualistic logical approaches into unicist double dialectical approaches in order to define complex adaptive systems. This technology allows starting with the use of disjunctions “OR” and ending with the use of conjunctions “AND”.

It is an upgrade that is up to you…

Virtual Negotiations: The Unicist Object Driven Approach

Virtual communication is extremely powerful to develop negotiations if the taxonomy, stages and processes are designed based on the characteristics of the medium.

Marshall McLuhan defined that “The medium is the message”, which can be demonstrated when developing virtual negotiations.

Virtual negotiations structurally differ from personal negotiations because they lose part of the energy provided by the “person to person” processes. Functionality needs to prevail in each stage of a virtual negotiation process.

In virtual negotiations it is necessary to divide the stages into physical divisions. Meaning that each stage needs to be closed, confirmed and matured before starting the next stage. The use of unicist business objects becomes necessary.

This implies a step by step process which demands successive meetings. These meetings are much shorter than personal meetings but need to be preceded and followed by the use of objects and allow preparing and confirming the functionality of what is being agreed upon.

This implies preparing the negotiation using gravitational objects and catalysts. During the meeting it is necessary to use drivers to empower the negotiation and then, after the negotiation, the use of inhibitors and entropy inhibitors becomes necessary.

In the real world there are few people who really can negotiate. Most of the people can buy, sell or make compromises. Virtual negotiation is only possible if both parts have the personal ability to negotiate which is given by their capacity to manage complementation conflicts, authority conflicts and involution conflicts.

The use of virtual media opens the global world to negotiations and saves an enormous amount of energy and costs. It requires respecting the archetypes of the different cultures and negotiate based on the nature of the objectives that need to be achieved.

It is a new stage in business that requires adopting a new technology.

Japanese Park: The Starting Point of the Unicist Approach

The Japanese Park is a technology to define the starting point of any personal or  organizational process. The name Japanese Park has been adopted honoring the Japanese ancient tradition that was used to define how to build a park.

The basic information that is needed to move from one place to another is the coordinates of the destiny and of the starting point. The knowledge of this information allows defining if the “journey” is possible.

The unicist approach to business defines the objective to be achieved and the starting point in an independent way before matching them to diagnose if the business process is possible.

The Japanese Park technology is used to define the starting point of a new work process.

The design of a new work process, using the unicist approach, implies establishing the basic context to make the work process happen spontaneously.

It consists in launching the work process without defining how to do it and letting people do the work in their natural way.

What is being evaluated in a Japanese Park is:

  1. How people organize their activity?
  2. What is the added value they spontaneously provide and to whom?
  3. How people do their work?

A sound conceptual knowledge of the business and the knowledge of its ontogenetic map are necessary to interpret the output of a Japanese Park to begin with the design of the business processes.

Unicist Debates: Building Collaborative Environments

Unicist debates are an approach to collaboration in fields where the nature of problems needs to be apprehended. It requires assuming the premise that all the participants of a debate are right.

This implies that the participants of a debate have sound knowledge of what is being discussed and they are sure that a superior apprehension of reality can be achieved.

In plain language, this means that when two positions A and B appear to be incompatible, a superior integration of both positions has to be found.

This necessarily requires a double dialectical approach in order to integrate the apparent contradictions in their oneness. This requires integrating them with a third element which demands perceiving the double dialectics.

Dualistic dialectics hinders this approach and drives towards a conflict to find who is right. In this case, the use of action-reflection-action processes allows transforming dualistic dialectics into double dialectical approaches.

The benefit of these unicist debates are the accurate diagnoses and strategies in adaptive environments and the definition of what is possible to be achieved.

The Unicist Approach to Efficacy in Work Processes

The Unicist Approach defines that efficacy is the capacity of individuals to produce results in a responsible way. This implies that efficacy requires awareness of what one is doing.

The unicist ontogenetic map defines that the integration of the levels of efficiency, efficacy and automation produce the effectiveness in work processes.

To change effectiveness in processes it is necessary to manage the unique manageable sub-concept which is efficacy.

Human activity needs to be managed also if effectiveness needs to be improved within the boundaries of an existing system. That is why the change of effectiveness needs to be introduced managing the active function.

The driver to change efficiency is also a human activity. That is why efficacy has to be the driver.

Changing the efficiency level may require a significant modification of the automation level of an activity. This generates a mutation of the work process.

The fundamentals of efficacy can by defined as:

The identification with the role: Efficacy requires that individuals are identified with the role they are fulfilling when they work. The role can be defined as the social identity of the individual.

The identification with the task: Efficacy requires having the necessary competencies to develop a task that allows enjoying the work.

Knowledge: Knowledge implies having the necessary “knowledge objects” to do the work stored in the long term memory.

The efficacy of individuals can be calculated using the mathematics of the Unicist Logic:

Unicist Efficacy = I(R) * I(T) * K

Individuals need to assume the responsibility of working in the field of their efficacy which defines the limits of the possibilities for assuming responsibilities to produce results.

Evolution implies developing the active function, while the energy conservation function tends to compensate the changes or not.

When the purpose is significantly changed, which is the case of automation, a mutation of work stations is being produced.

In the industrial fields, efficiency and efficacy can be managed using the unicist fishbone which has been developed, based on the Ishikawa model, integrating all the elements that are part of a unicist ontological structure.

Unicist Workstation Design

The specific WSD requires defining the efficacy that needs to be available, the efficiency of the system and the necessary level of automation according to the characteristics of the adaptive aspects of a job.

Processes can be fully automated when they require no adaptive behavior. Efficacy becomes critical when adaptive behavior is necessary.

Efficiency can grow up to a certain level when defining jobs. When a certain level is surpassed, it produces paradoxical results because it alienates workers. Job enrichment is a way to compensate an extreme level of efficiency at work.

Efficacy varies from person to person based in their natural characteristics and the schooling system they were subject to. Operational thinkers have their efficacy level at a high programmed level that uses disambiguated language and operational know how to work.

People who developed their conceptual thinking are able to deal with ambiguous environments with a low level of programming. Low level of programming implies that individuals need to behave in an adaptive way depending on the responses of the environment.

People who seek for security are expecting a highly programmed environment. Those who seek for freedom, having assumed the responsibility for producing results, expect a low programmed job.

Unicist Management: Why go Beyond Dualism?

The neural functionality is dualistic. Neurons are “on” or “off”. Dualistic Dialectics vs. Double Dialectics is the battle between the disjunction “OR” and the conjunction “AND”.

The dualistic dialectics of Hegel and Marx transformed this dualistic approach into a social myth that provided an oversimplified perception of reality and a way to influence it.

Both dialectics are fallacious because they do not emulate the structure of nature.

The dualistic thinking necessarily fosters a non-adaptive behavior that is driven by idealistic, ideological, materialistic, spiritual or egocentric needs. Dualism is necessary when personal needs prevail over functional adaptation.

The consequence of dualistic thinking is that people believe in a dialectical behavior. Adaptation becomes impossible when using dualistic thinking.

But dualistic dialectics has proven to be fallacious to understand and influence evolution. The unicist double dialectical logic allowed using the dualism of neural functionality but emulating the functionality of nature.

In the short run, the benefit of using dualistic dialectics is that it transforms humans in judges of reality instead of responsible participants.

You decide, it is up to you…

What are Unicist Business Objects?

The use of business objects structures the timing and synchronicity of business processes. It also provides the necessary acceleration to achieve the needed critical mass and the required speed to adapt to the environment.

Unicist Business Objects are proven solutions based on the use of the unicist ontological algorithms included in the Unicist Standard that can be installed in processes in order to save energy and increase quality to produce results.

Objects are productive units (adaptive systems) that have a concept, an added value, the necessary quality assurance and a methodology to ensure the minimum strategy.

Types of Business Objects

There are five business objects which are: the drivers, the entropy inhibitors, the inhibitors, the catalysts and the gravitational objects.

The first three ones belong to the process of a system while the catalysts are part of the restricted context and the gravitational objects belong to the wide context of a system.

Objects can be designed integrating these three functions as part of their functionality or they can exist as three different objects to provide the driving, inhibiting and entropy inhibiting functions in a process.

Catalysts and gravitational objects are not part of the system. If one integrates them into the system, these objects do not work as such and destroy the system’s functionality.

The use of business objects requires individuals who understand the business processes in order to use the objects and replace them when their functionality has been exceeded.

Synthetically:

Driving Objects
To drive processes
Catalyzing Objects
To accelerate processes
Entropy Inhibiting Objects
To inhibit the entropy of business processes
Inhibiting Objects
To inhibit dysfunctional events in a business
Gravitational Objects
To influence the results of processes
