Organizing growth: The Power of Confederations

Confederations are the most powerful model to organize structured growth. They were born as soon as human tribes began to fight to broaden their “vital space”.

The Power of Confederations1Confederations appeared to ensure defense and in some cases this is still the reason for their constitution.

But this was only the beginning. Soon they became a model to expand activities.

The confederative model can be seen frequently in the organization of countries, professional associations, unions, sports, highly differentiated franchises, etc.

Confederations must fulfill some basic conditions as a way to expand the activity of a business and their members:

1) They need to have a superior functionality in the segment they deal with.

2) They need to have a superior ethic in that segment.

3) They need to have a strong spirit de corps.

4) They need to be internally transparent.

5) They need to have a stable “currency”.

Having the necessary expansion capacity, a superior functionality and a spirit de corps defines the power of a Confederation. Formal Confederations that are not adequately structured degrade the relationships with their members and with the environment.

Double Dialectical Logic and the Power of Collaboration

Complementation is the basic attitude for collaborative actions. The final goal of collaboration is to build a complementation between the participating parts. Complementation is the starting point and the final goal of any collaborative process.

ComplementationThe active function of a collaborative context is given its functionality which means the utility the process is able to provide, the aesthetics that completes the needs of the participants and the reliability of the actions of those who collaborate.

Reliability is at the same time the catalyst of collaboration because it is what allows achieving the synergy that is needed to produce functional results.

At a personal level, a collaborative context requires establishing an ethical, an ideological and an emotional link among the participants.

The ethical link deals with the functionality of the actions, the ideological link implies sharing an adequate technology within the shared beliefs of the members and the emotional link provides an adequate human context to the collaboration.

When these conditions are given, then complementation will allow the generation of value in a context of “focusing” on results while using an integrative logic that allows integrating the parts based on their conjunction.

Collaboration requires necessarily the integration of different types of people in order to build the necessary synergy to produce results.

Collaborative contexts require the existing of true complementation where both anti-complementation and pseudo-complementation need to be excluded. In biological terms, we can say that there is no room for commensals nor for parasites.

Four types of roles were identified in collaboration contexts:

  • Artisans
  • Risk Managers
  • Builders
  • Creators

Collaboration implies managing an adaptive process that is necessarily based on the conjunction “and” avoiding the disjunction “or”. Learn more about it at:

Approaching fundamentals to deal with adaptive systems

Fundamentals define the nature of reality. The unicist technology for diagnostics approaches problems based on their nature.

Problems turn complex when results must be achieved, and require a high accuracy of the diagnoses, prognoses and action plans to solve them. Unicist technologies for diagnostics were developed to ensure results.

The unicist approach considers any specific reality, on which influence intends to be exerted, as a unified field. This is the origin of the name unicist.

Access the visual guide to the Unicist Standard in Business at:
https://www.unicist.net/management/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/unicist_standard_guide_en.pdf

Diagnosing implies describing the functionality of a reality. And this description includes the internal cause-effect relations, whether they are univocal or bi-univocal.

From that point on, a prognosis of the natural evolution of that reality has to be developed and then an action plan to influence such reality is included in the final diagnosis. Unicist diagnoses include: descriptions, prognoses and action plans.

The Unicist Fundamentals of Mozilla

A navigator is the person on board of a ship or aircraft responsible for its navigation. The navigator is not the captain, but provides the information to the captain in order to make adequate decisions. Therefore, the navigator’s primary responsibility is to be aware of the ship or aircraft’s position at all times.

A Navigator on the Internet is an object that substitutes the individual that navigates a ship or airplane to position the user in the World Wide Web.

In business there are many activities that are homologous to navigators:

-Market Research
-Strategic Positioning
-Diagnosing
-Scenario Building
-Information Technology, etc.

In order to benchmark Mozilla’s experience we would consider that it is a way to navigate the Internet providing alternatives to the “captain” in order to use the platform as a tool to develop the activity s/he has planned.

The Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) is simpler. It provides basically a rigid navigation platform to ensure that individuals can access information. IE doesn’t pretend to be an adaptive platform. It pretends to be a simple access to the Internet. Thus it is the natural navigator for individuals who just use Internet as an access to information.

The more participative the design of the navigators, the more flexible they can work. The more flexible they are, the higher the level of the “persons” to deal with them.

Mozilla is an example that can only be benchmarked if it is experienced in real use, as well as its comparison with the Internet Explorer Concept.

This benchmark will help you design adaptive systems. The Unicist Standard allows developing flexible designs with quality assurance.

We recommend listening to John Lilly’s lecture, CEO of Mozilla.  You will access the core fundamental of Mozilla’s success.

Aesthetics is the core of Steve Jobs’ business approach

Apple’s success is based on the capacity of perceiving the latent needs of the market and delivering original innovative solutions.

We hope you made the effort to learn from Steve Jobs about Apple’s fundamentals as we proposed.

If you still haven’t done the “homework” we recommend watching the video before following the reading of the answer to the questions posted:

http://unicist.net/it/learning-from-steve-jobs-apple%E2%80%99s-fundamentals/

We consider that the core fundamental of Apple is aesthetics. But aesthetics is not beauty. It goes beyond.

Apple products are aesthetic because they complete the needs of their prospect clients, they are desirable and harmonic. They also include inaccessible aspects that basically deal with innovative technology.

It can be said that the integration of an innovative technology with the fulfillment of latent needs are the core fundamentals that drive Apple’s business.

Steve Jobs is a doer himself

“Doers make things happen. Therefore, more than ever before, it is time for doers in the world.”

Doers are very special individuals. They are basically individuals whose fulfillment is based on doing transcendent things. They need to achieve what they have decided to do. When things cannot be done the easy way, they find the necessary path to make things happen.

“The world is built by doers and enjoyed by followers”. The joy of doers is in the deed itself.

We hope this has been useful.
