Case study = rigid knowledge Vs. Research and application = adaptive knowledge

In higher education, a widely used methodology has been established, such as case studies. This mechanism is both a trap and a false solution, and it is that the rigidity of the proposed solution is inapplicable in the field of the unknown.

Complex Problem Solving - Education

Does the solution Tesla applied give me tools to solve my current problem? Or, how did Uber approach its business strategy? Well, unless you are the CEO of Tesla or Uber, the information explored in the case is hardly replicable in the particular situations of participants in educational programs.

The approach to the field of the unknown, which is the main characteristic of complex problems, is feasible thanks to the investigative approach to root cause diagnosis proposed by the unicist logic.

Unicist logic searches through the conceptual structure of reality for the root causes that determine a specific reality and proposes a way forward to obtain solutions to complex problems.

In this way it is possible to obtain adaptive knowledge that allows us to approach a problem in a different way, increasing the probability of obtaining the desired results.

NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute (TURI) is a world leader in its segment. Since 1976, it has been specialized in complexity sciences applied to the research on the roots of evolution and its application to social, institutional, business and individual evolution.
