Learning from Procter & Gamble using the Unicist Standard

The notorious capacity of Procter & Gamble is given by the way it manages the social insertion of innovations.

We recommend watching the following two short presentations of Procter & Gamble at:

Innovation is the basis for economic growth.  Essentially, countries, cultures, institutions, and individuals grow only in the fields where they are open to innovations.

The purpose of innovation is to overcome scarcity. That is why only people or cultures that have the will, find the way to overcome scarcity.  This is the cultural context that fosters innovation.

The driver of innovation is human creation. The word creation is used in the sense of recreation. Humans create based on the existing energy.

The maximal strategy of innovations drives towards the solution of a scarcity. Therefore innovative organizations have the perception that they add value to the environment. But this is only true if the minimum strategy is also fulfilled.

The minimum strategy implies inserting the innovations into the social capital of the environment. Social capital is defined by the strength of the bonds that integrate the members of a community.

Commercial innovations need to be only one step ahead of the habits of the environment. If they are more than one step ahead they fail, unless there is an extreme need and they are, implicitly, a “back to basics”.

In this field Procter & Gamble is a notorious benchmark.

Understanding Cultures: The Archetype of China

The archetype of China is a unique case of a culture that has the capacity to grow based on the internal consistency of its model, a model that became complementary to the globalization process.

We strongly recommend watching the following video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mRlgQKWlnQ

China’s Structure

China is a culture based on the consistency of the social and individual efforts and the capacity of accepting trade-offs to achieve the goals of the country.

The Chinese model has to be understood in itself without comparing it with other countries. It has multiple economic models working simultaneously. It is neither a communist nor a capitalist model. It uses multiple unique solutions which imply permanent trade-offs between the different models to achieve its growth.

The Communist Party can be considered as homologous to the ancient nobility in Europe but representing the interests of China as a country and the needs of its population.

Entering the Communist Party needs to be earned because within the party there has to be an ideological consistency to allow a democratic behavior. The Communist Party is the “Establishment” of China.

Confucius’ Concept

Confucianism is a functional philosophy for a culture that needs to grow in a context of an extremely large country with a large population. Order is necessary to sustain consistency.

Minorities in China have to behave within the limits of the explicit and implicit Chinese model. Censorship and self-censorship are a need to avoid that the culture loses its consistency. But although censorship becomes necessary in this context, it is also the implicit weakness of the Chinese archetype.

Cultures evolve based on their implicit weaknesses. Therefore, a generational change can be expected in this field depending on the new trade-offs the culture will make.

A Shielded Culture

China has been, is and will be a shielded archetype, protecting its culture and beliefs in order to ensure its consistency and allowing making the necessary trade-offs to grow.

This shield was represented by the Chinese Wall in the past, and now it is represented by the multiple regulations that establish the framework of the country.

Maximal Strategy

The maximal strategy of China is driven by the working capacity of the culture and the catalyst for the minimum strategy is their cultural shield that ensures the consistency of its actions. The cultural shield works as a protection from foreign influence and internal distortions.

Minimum Strategy

The minimum strategy is driven by the individual working capacity of its population. The entropy inhibitor, to ensure the achievement of growth, is the ideological shield that ensures the focus of the efforts on the objectives that are being achieved.

The personal capacity of making trade-offs is installed in the population and makes individuals extremely focused achievers.

To apprehend the Chinese archetype it is necessary to understand Doers, avoiding ideological, religious or social comparisons. China was, is and will be unique. China doesn’t base its expansion on exporting culture, but on exporting products.

Unicist Future Research: The Archetype of China

We invite you to apprehend the nature of China’s archetype. But consider that it is necessary to avoid comparisons with other cultures.

“The reach of one’s globalization is defined by the limit of the pronoun WE.”

If you are really interested in understanding the Chinese archetype we recommend listening to the lecture you find at:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mRlgQKWlnQ

We strongly recommend “reading between lines” to apprehend the fundamentals of the culture. Access the information on the unicist ontology of economic behavior at: https://www.unicist.net/management/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/ontology_economy_en.pdf

Only if the culture is within the limits of your “WE” you will be able to perceive aspects of the Chinese archetype.

Next week you will have access to the essential aspects of China’s culture on this blog.

Using the Unicist Standard to learn from Unilever

Unicist Object Driven Leadership is a back to basics. The concept of leadership is defined by the integration of Authority, Participation and Power. This is self-evident. But the question is: Which are the Fundamentals of Leadership?

In the following lines you will find an answer to the question posed in this blog last week:  http://unicist.net/management/benchmarking-unilever-unicist-object-driven-leadership/

Objects sustain the power of leaders avoiding to exert such power. In this sense, objects work as:

1) Drivers to make things happen
2) Catalysts to accelerate action
3) Inhibitors, working as a non-exerted dissuasion power
4) Gravitational forces of leaders’ authority

Using Unicist Object Driven Leadership you will be accessing a new world, which is at the same time a back to basics. It implies producing more results and being a natural leader in all those fields where you can integrate your personal action with the use of institutionalizing objects.

The basics of leadership

Leadership is based on the need to sustain one’s authority. The participation of others is a condition of leadership. A leader is such because s/he is followed. Therefore, in terms of the Unicist Logic, Participation is the active function of leadership and the energy conservation function is given by the Power a leader has to impose her/his authority. But this is a sort of paradox. The energy conservation function is given by the power the individual “does not use”. If the power is used it consumes energy and, in fact, a double amount of energy, because:

1) To impose something there is a need to exert power and consume energy.

2) When power is exerted, authority is being lost, because it means that the authority of the individual has not been accepted. And in this case, an additional amount of energy must be invested to reconstruct the value of the authoritative role.

Participation poses another paradoxical dilemma:

1) When the authority of the leader is extreme, for example a religious leader, the participation is not possible.

2) When the participation is extreme, there is no possibility to accept an authoritative role.

This solution is contraindicated for absolutist, subjectivist, fundamentalist and anarchic leaders.

Benchmarking: Is the Unicist Standard a Rolls-Royce?

Last week, TURI’s Marketing Manager said “…the Unicist Standard is a Rolls-Royce car” provoking a harsh response of a Unicist Business Search Engine user.

This generated the need of clarifying what a Rolls-Royce is, and if dealing with the nature of businesses, to diagnose, develop future scenarios, build strategies and design organizations based on the unicist theory of evolution, is essentially analogous or not.

If you Google “unicist theory of evolution” or “unicist ontology of evolution” you will find access to all the information you need.

The questions we are posing to be able to understand Rolls-Royce’s benchmarks are:

1) What is it that it offers?
2) Why is it homologous to the Unicist Standard?
3) What other analogous cases are there in the market?

Listening to Rolls-Royce’s presentation is strongly recommended:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r4_-fbGNjqI

Please reflect on the presentation to go beyond the appearance of the products and the pre-concepts you might have.

The Unicist Research Institute researched the Rolls-Royce market 15 year ago in order to discover its ontological structure and develop homologous strategies in other markets.

In two weeks you will be able to access the answer on this blog.
