Functional Design is managed Individually or in Design Groups

Voiced by Amazon Polly

All the unicist groups that deal with the development of solutions in adaptive environments have the same structure to enhance their collective intelligence. They have a coordinator, a fallacy-shooter, and an ombudsperson.

The complementation and the supplementation of these roles enhance the collective intelligence of groups. They expand the efficacy of the participants by introducing the core aspects of the functionality of a group.

The Members of the Groups

The members of the design group that participate in the development of solutions as well as the members of the testing group that test the solutions assume a differentiated responsibility within the group, taking one of the following roles:

  1. The “Coordinator” is responsible for guiding the group towards the objectives that have been defined. The coordinator has the full responsibility for the diagnoses and for achieving the results that have been defined as being possible to be achieved. The participants also have full responsibility for the results after they agreed that such results are possible.

  2. The “Fallacy-Shooter” is responsible for assuring the quality of the foundations and justifications in the decision-making processes. The “Fallacy-Shooter” is the person responsible for guiding the action-reflection-action process in order to improve the accuracy of the diagnoses and of the work processes.

  3. The “Ombudsperson” is responsible for monitoring the value generation of the design processes. The “Ombudsperson” is responsible for monitoring that the proposals respond to the functional needs of the solutions that are required; s/he guarantees results. The ombudsperson represents the “user” and is responsible for generating value to the environment.

Developing solutions requires having diagnosed their implicit concepts. The triadic structure of unicist concepts defines the functionality of any kind of entity. All that is part of a system has a concept, which makes it part of that system. The process of developing solutions requires developing binary actions to ensure results.
