The Functionalist Approach Uses Binary Actions

We invite you to enter the world of managing businesses using a functionalist approach that supersedes, but includes, the empirical approach and allows ensuring results. It uses binary actions, which are two synchronized actions that aim at the same purpose.

It is based on managing the triadic structure that drives any system, which is integrated by a purpose, an active function to expand and an energy conservation function to ensure results.

The functionalist approach to generate results is based on developing Unicist Binary Actions (UBA). These binary actions are synchronized actions that are natural as soon as one recognizes the purpose, the active function and the energy conservation function that drive the functionality of something.

Some examples will help to grasp the idea:

Unicist Binary Actions
  1. The active function and the energy conservation function of the intelligence of a tree drive its growth and survival.
  2. Lift and propulsion make airplanes take-off and fly.
  3. The cover and the back-cover define the functionality of the packaging of a book.
  4. The music and the lyrics of a song define its aesthetics.

The use of binary actions to manage adaptive environments is a must.

Binary Actions are a Natural Human Approach

The use of manipulation, threat and chantage are negative ways of using binary actions to obtain benefits. Here you can find a series of binary actions to generate value that are evident, which are benchmarks you might use to adopt this way of thinking and working:

  1. Learning (UBAa) + Teaching (UBAb) = Knowledge acquisition
  2. Productivity (UBAa) + Quality (UBAb) = Value generation
  3. Marketing (UBAa) + Selling (UBAb) = Generating revenue
  4. Punishment (UBAa) + Rewards (UBAb) = People management
  5. Root Causes (UBAa) + Triggering Causes (UBAb) = Solutions
  6. Efficacy (UBAa) + Efficiency (UBAb) = Effectiveness
  7. Empathy (UBAa) + Sympathy (UBAb) = Influence Building
  8. Participation (UBAa) + Power (UBAb) = Leadership
  9. Processes (UBAa) + Objects (UBAb) = Organization
  10. Desirability (UBAa) + Harmony (UBAb) = Aesthetics

To generate results, the synchronicity of binary actions requires beginning with UBAa, which are active function actions, and then developing UBAb that are energy conservation actions.

Facileness installs shortcuts by trying to avoid the cost of the active function and obtaining results by just doing the energy conservation actions. Facileness intends to transfer the costs and the responsibility for results to others.

This is evident in educational programs; teaching requires that an individual previously has the need to learn. If not s/he will just be judging the teacher and what is being taught.

Efficacy in the 4th Industrial Revolution

Efficacy is needed to deal with adaptive environments. Professional efficacy is based on the existence of a personal purpose that sustains the motivation and makes the activity meaningful. This purpose provides the necessary energy to overcome the difficulties that are implicit in any adaptive behavior. This purpose is materialized through the functional intelligence to manage the activities that works as the catalyst of efficacy.

Professional Efficacy

Efficacy requires that the roles the work processes provide be meaningful. It also requires that the people have the necessary functional knowledge to assume the responsibility for results and enjoy the tasks that need to be developed.

Thus, the personal purpose is the gravitational force that sustains efficacy and the intelligence people have is the catalyst that makes efficacy possible. Efficacy is replaced by efficiency when there is no purpose or no functional intelligence to manage the environment. Efficiency implies the use of trained automated behavior to deal with work, which is functional to manage programmed work processes.

The Research

The research on efficacy became an urgent matter to define the next stage of automation, which implies increasing the level of adaptability of organizations. This research was led by Peter Belohlavek at The Unicist Research Institute.

It was based on expanding the intrinsic concept of efficacy that was researched almost 40 years ago.
https://www.unicist.net/management/the-unicist-approach-to-efficacy-in-work-processes/
This research required implementing adaptive automation with the participation of executives and professionals to find the fields where their efficacy is functional to the goals of organizations. It included the development of the necessary destructive tests to confirm that the behavior was based on conscious intelligence and not on unconscious automatisms.

You can find the new stage of business organization demanded by the introduction of adaptive automation, the use of telework and new aspects of management in the 4th Industrial Revolution at:

Conclusion

Organizing the adaptability and customer orientation of businesses reinforced by the 4th Industrial Revolution requires the necessary efficacy that is functional to the characteristics of the business and that people work within the framework generated by the use of adaptive automation. It has to be considered that the efficacy of people in a specific field defines their learning capacity. The core of organizing is installing people in jobs where they have their highest level of efficacy.

Managing the Root-Causes of Business Functions

The management of the root-causes of businesses is one of the fundamentals of the Unicist Evolutionary Approach. The root causes of problems are defined by their underlying concepts and fundamentals. They allow defining what is possible to be achieved, developing the maximal and minimum strategic actions and using the necessary business objects to make it happen.

Unicist Root-Cause Management

The concepts and fundamentals that underlie business functions are the essential drivers of their functionality.

The eventual dysfunctionality of the concepts and fundamentals is the root-cause of the problems of a business function.

That is why the concept of a business function defines its structure and sustains its evolution.

The structure of the concepts of a business function, emulates the intelligence that underlies nature.

The management of the root causes of a business function requires knowing the structure of the concepts involved.

Managing Unicist Concepts

Managing the concepts of things ensures their functionality. Unicist conceptual design was developed to manage the conceptual structure of something that is being built, that defines the unicist ontological structure that defines its nature and the root causes of their functionality.

Unicist conceptual design simplifies the building of things by transforming the unified field of the processes into structured operational solutions.

It is based on the fact that the concepts people have in their mind, which are stored in their long-term memory, drive their actions.

The structure of these concepts is defined by their unicist ontology that is integrated by a purpose, an active and entropic function and an energy conservation function.

These concepts are an emulation of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature that defines the intrinsic concepts that underlie the functionality of living beings and drives their growth and the survival as a species.

Human deeds have the concepts defined by the functionality of these deeds that are cross-cultural and timeless and exist as long as the functionality exists. Although their structure does not change the operational functionality is fully environment dependent.

The Unicist Ontogenetic Map of Negotiations

Negotiations are the actions where the diplomatic power is transformed into concrete value. A negotiation is a process where synergy between parts is achieved finding the complementation and the space where non-conflictive relations are possible.

To deal with the nature of negotiations it is necessary to clarify the nature of conflicts that underlies.

It can be said that there are four basic conflicts between humans:

Evolution conflicts: These are complementation conflicts that result from the mutual difference between the parts.

Involution conflicts: These are the conflicts that result from the supplementation of the colliding strengths between the parts.

Authority conflicts: They result from the need of the parts to prevail in some field.

Absence of conflict: This is the consequence of needing to avoid conflicts because their consequences cannot be faced.

Therefore there are different types of negotiations that are the consequence of the types of conflicts prevailing and how they are solved. The particular characteristic of the negotiation process is that while the individual negotiations that integrate this process are taxonomically driven, each one of them works as a unit.

Business reactive growth: Counter-cyclical strategies

Counter-cyclical strategies are a way to develop structural growth beyond the existing boundaries of a business or the beginning of a structural crisis recovery. They are the way reactive growth actions are implemented.

The building of counter-cycles implies the existence of a new ethic and an expectancy that “something is going to happen now”.

The expectancy is the action driver and the new ethic is the energy conservation function that ensures the counter-cycle to work.

Counter-cycles work by niches. This implies a hard work to be developed finding the niches that need an expansion.

In a crisis everybody appears to need an expansive action, but only few believe that they are able to do it.

Therefore it is necessary to select the niches that are mentally prepared to accept a counter-cyclical approach in order to deal with the adequate segment.

Maximal strategies require that the proposed solution be expected, actors that offer the solution be trusted and that there is the necessary credibility.

Frequently, the leaders that had to face the crisis at the beginning are not credible to propose a counter-cyclical solution. This happens both in the private and in the public sector.

Credibility is the catalyst of the beginning of any counter-cycle. At this stage “prove” of credibility is the price that has to be paid.

Without “prove” that a counter-cycle works, it is only another bubble in the pathway until the crisis has been overcome.

Peopleware builds the integration of hardware and software

Peopleware is defined by the structure of objects that individuals have in their minds which define the models they use when dealing with hardware and software at work.

Peopleware is what allows integrating hardware and software providing the true driver of the business model.

It is necessary to understand the organizational equilibrium laws, the natural organization and the object driven business model in order to manage peopleware.

When peopleware has been defined and adequate aesthetic use of software with a solid hardware will make business processes operational.

Peopleware is perhaps the most significant development to provide business operational solutions to companies. It allows transforming administrative systems into adaptive systems to upgrade work processes when managing businesses as unified fields.

Peopleware provides the utility to operational business models allowing software to be user friendly (aesthetic for the user) and the functionality of hardware to become solid.

By definition, an approach that deals with the deepest human drivers to work is abstract. This abstraction needs to be apprehended in a reflection process to approach solutions for work processes.

Peopleware is business architecture applied to work process design. Therefore, it is for people who have a sound knowledge of the business that is being modeled.

2012, the Year of the Possible

This year The Unicist Research Institute has celebrated the 35th anniversary with the most fruitful research effort in their history having finished more than 600 researches including some of them than demanded far more than 20 years (consciousness, unified field of human adaptive systems, etc). They made 600 new aspects in the field of individual, institutional and social fields become possible.

The unicist approach is based on finding out what is possible in order to focus on it. The unicist approach deals with the “possible”, defined as a noun. It has to be considered that a possibility is a conditional situation while the “possible” is an assertive fact.

What is possible sustains success. Everything that is possible can be achieved. But this has a problem: while it provides the security of what can be done, it demands the freedom of assuming the responsibility for doing it.

The crises in the world happen because something was not “possible” but this situation was disregarded. Failures are always a consequence of someone trying to do something impossible or of something possible that was not done because people did not assume the responsibility.

That is why The Unicist Research Institute promotes:
