Change resistance


Energy Saving in Business Management

Work implies producing a displacement of something in the real world. Every displacement generates a friction that needs to be managed.

When two people are doing something in a working environment and one of them produces work and the other is inactive, the friction produced is extremely destructive.

It produces a paradoxical situation because:

1) There is an extreme conflict if the friction is not eliminated.
2) If the parts are “lubricated”, there will be no friction but the person who is inactive will continue doing nothing.
3) The inactive person needs to judge what the other part is doing because that judgment sustains her/his self-esteem.
4) Finally, the one who does the work ends up being judged by the one who cannot do it and the conflict escalates to the maximal level.

Apparent movement is worse than inaction

Inaction appears often hidden behind apparent actions that are done without having assumed the responsibility for producing results. These apparent actions are based on fallacious decisions that produce negative results because they generate costs without adding value.

In this case they do not produce friction; they directly produce an “explosion” of the situation or an “implosion” of the actions.

If this conflict is not faced the natural trend towards minimum energy consumption (*) and inaction will prevail, eliminating both apparent actions and real actions.

To deal with this problem the nature of doers has to be understood in order to avoid their quitting. Access a free e-book on the Nature of Doers http://unicist.org/deb_doers.php

(*) In a closed system, with constant external parameters and entropy, the internal energy will decrease and approach a minimum value at equilibrium.

The Unicist Standard for Business Upgrades

Upgrades are such when businesses are able to add more value to their markets.

To do so a company needs to change the weaknesses that are implicit in the strengths of its business.

But when the implicit weaknesses are “repaired”, the complementary strengths lose their support. Where there is a light there is a shadow. Therefore, where there is a strength there is an implicit weakness.

Changes of implicit weaknesses produce commotions in businesses, having three possible consequences:

1)      The upgrade of the business

2)      The mutation of the business

3)      The elimination of the change

Upgrades require changing the operational procedures of a company in order to increase the value added to the market. The unicist standard implies the use of business objects within the organizational processes.

Business objects need to add specific values to the processes. That is why a conceptual design of the entire business process is needed to introduce business objects.

Evolving businesses are “democratic”. Democracy in business means that the decisions are objective, grounded and functional to the organization.

Transparency is a basic condition for business upgrades. But transparency is only possible if the fundamentals of the business are being managed.

Business stagnations or downgrades

In stagnated or involving businesses the organization is driven by its strengths considering the implicit weaknesses as a limit for their actions.

This is functional to businesses working in markets that are stagnated. But a business that works within the limits of its weaknesses enters automatically in an involution cycle if markets evolve.

Involving businesses are used to compensating their weaknesses with a dominant role. Stagnated businesses fight against involution exerting power to convince the market and the internal organization that they are following or leading a successful trend.

Stagnated survivors use justifications to profit from others

Stagnated survivors destroy any business. They are not aware of the consequences of their actions or inactions.

“They always have the necessary justifications to profit from others and the destruction power to impose them. The destruction power can be active or passive. They destroy by action or inaction.”

The unicist ontology of Innovation Blindness in Management: The continuous improvement killer

The development of unicist technologies and their implementation processes required the research of innovation blindness to develop strategies to avoid it.

Change blindness is a well known and experimented subject. The research was developed by different educational institutions: http://viscog.beckman.uiuc.edu/change/people.shtml

Innovation blindness is an unconscious response of individuals who do not perceive the proposed change, when the conditions to make use of it are not given.

The avoidance of energy consumption to introduce a new task in an individual’s brain is the functionality of innovation blindness.

Causes of innovation blindness

There are social and individual causes.

Social causes

1) When there are utopias implicit in the innovations that are out of reach for a group or society.
2) When the innovation does not respects the myths of a culture.
3) When the innovation disrespects the taboos of a culture.
4) When the innovation modifies the ethics of a culture.

Individual causes

1) When it modifies an individual’s habits.
2) When it modifies the ethics of an individual.
3) When the “functional recreation” by a user requires a level of knowledge the individual doesn’t have.
4) When the ego or the “business” of an individual is affected.
5) When an increase of responsibility of the user is required and s/he has no need to assume it.
6) When an increase of internal freedom of the individual is required.
7) When it stimulates guild or fear of the user.
