Maximal and Minimum Strategies of External Freedom

Achieving external freedom requires, besides having the inner freedom to develop it, having a maximal strategy that deals with the process of consciousness and a minimum strategy that deals with the adaptive actions.

Maximal strategies require being conscious about what is happening. This is a universal aspect of maximal strategies.

All maximal strategies in the real world require consciousness of the functionality of the actions that are being planned or developed.

In this case the building of the maximal strategies of external freedom requires being able to discriminate the actions that are being developed, emulate the solution in the mind and have the necessary ontointelligence to deal with them.

The minimum strategies of external freedom are based on developing the necessary, justified and grounded actions to adapt to the environment.

There are different segments when dealing with external freedom:

1)      Benchmark driven

2)      Rationality driven

3)      Ethics driven

4)      Reflection driven

Complexity Science: Tweetinar on Unicist Diagnostics

Etymologically, diagnosis means discerning, distinguishing. The everyday use of the word also implies seeking for the causes of a problem.

From a conceptual point of view, diagnoses are made to forecast and to exert influence on a reality. The level of the groundings upon which diagnoses are based defines its level of accuracy.

Diagnoses necessarily include intuitive aspects when approaching new situations. The difference between diagnoses does not lie in the intuitive approach, but in the processing of the information that intuition offers.

We have identified five levels of diagnoses:

1)      Intuitive-analogical
2)      Descriptive
3)      Static
4)      Causal
5)      Functional

Intuitive-analogical diagnosis

The intuitive diagnosis approaches reality from the subjective perceptions of an individual. It does not use groundings to validate intuition, just intuitive analogies.

Descriptive diagnosis

The outcome of this diagnosis is a description of the visible physical aspects of a reality. This diagnosis can help to solve simple problems.

The static diagnosis

This diagnosis is based on the analysis of a reality. It is called static because in order to analyze something, we need to consider it as a fixed situation in time and circumstances. This diagnosis helps solving simple problems in areas which involve formal or rational components.

The causal diagnosis

The causal diagnosis is a systemic approach to reality. It is a systemic diagnosis that analyzes the functional

ity of a given reality. It sustains the solution of complex problems with low ambiguity levels.

The functional diagnosis

This diagnosis is based on the understanding of the functional concepts that underlay a given reality. The functional diagnosis is necessary for the solution of highly complex problems with ambiguous components.

The secure diagnosis

A diagnosis is “secure” when it includes all levels of analysis. Secure knowledge has been achieved when this condition has been fulfilled. Secure knowledge requires a high investment of energy. Therefore people often prefer to use reliable but not secure diagnoses, and control the evolution of a given reality in order to validate the accuracy of such diagnoses.

The questions that will be answered during the Unicist Tweetinar are:

  1. What are business diagnoses for?
  2. What are intuitive diagnoses for?
  3. What are functional diagnostics based on?
  4. What is mathematical validation of diagnoses for?
  5. What are conceptual validation model for?
  6. What is the 5 why methodology for?
  7. Which are the 5 why that need to be answered?

Unicist Tweetinar on Unicist Object driven Strategy

The human approach to strategy is defined as the conscious planning of human beings to influence the environment when such environment is uncertain, risky, complex or conflictive.

Influencing implies that the actions of a developed strategy will occur in the future.

The unicist strategic approach implies the building of a natural complementation with the “client” and a competitive strategy with “competitors”.

Strategy building implies a conscious behavior; therefore it implies intuitive but also emotional and rational conducts. Respecting taxonomies diminishes the risk of fallacies and paradoxical results. Pilot testing is necessary to secure the validity of a strategy.

The questions that will be answered during the Unicist Tweetinar are:

  1. What is the Unicist Strategy for?
  2. Why is it called Unicist Object driven Strategy?
  3. Why is it said that “Battles are won or lost before they are fought?
  4. Is the Unicist Strategic approach an action driver or an energy conservation function?
  5. What do you define as a maximal strategy, and what are they for?
  6. How do you define a minimum strategy and what is necessary to develop them?
  7. What is the catalyst of the minimum strategy and how does it work?

Questions are needed to manage adaptive systems

Adaptive systems are in permanent motion. Therefore the knowledge of their nature is necessary in order to establish fixed points to influence them.

To apprehend an adaptive system it is necessary to have the questions to grasp what is behind the apparent actions. This is what makes evolution possible.

“Action-reflection-action” is the process that needs to be followed to influence an adaptive system’s environment.

The basic questions that need to be posed at the different levels of logical thinking and reflection are:

Why? – Conceptual thinking and reflection
What for? – Scientific / systemic thinking
What? – Analytic thinking
How? – Operational thinking

When reality is approached based on responses instead of question it is degraded to the pre-concepts that individuals have in their minds. This drives necessarily to parallel realities and involution.

The acceptance of this fact fosters a change of the educational systems. In the real world, students are basically evaluated based on the responses they are able to provide.

Approaching reality based on questions has become a “Martian” behavior. But the integration of both questions and answers is needed to generate evolution.

Conservatism rules, because it needs to foster predefined responses. The future generations will have to pay the prices the present generation doesn’t want to pay.

Unicist Tweetinar on market micro-segmentation

Micro-segmentation is the pathway to exert influence on real clients. It is based on the discovery of the unicist ontological market segmentation.

It allows managing and influencing buying actions and defining the limits of commercial possibilities.

Concepts and Fundamentals sustain human attitude and support this segmentation model. Anthropological life-styles allow defining the context of the commercial activities.

The questions that will be answered during the Unicist Tweetinar are:

1) What triggered the development of the ontological market segmentation model?
2) What is the unicist ontological segmentation model?
3) Fundamentals structure the ontology of human behavior. What are they for?
4) Which are the elements that integrate the unicist ontological market segmentation?
5) What is the universal unicist ontological market segmentation for?
6) What is the ontological micro-segmentation of markets?
7) How is the micro-segmentation used in marketing?

Unicist Ontological Object Driven Brand Building

The purpose of unicist brand-building is to develop business catalysts. Catalysts are process accelerators. Brands are a natural catalyst for market growth. At the same time, business objects can be used to catalyze the building of brands.

It is necessary to have apprehended the nature of a business and its necessary brand in order to be able to build objects to accelerate brand building. Apprehending the nature implies knowing the ontology of a business and its necessary brand.

The ontology of brands can be defined integrating the purpose, which is the building of goodwill, with the product brand and the institutional image.

Goodwill is a “subjective value” of something that exceeds the “objective value”.  Goodwill is measured in money.

Products are naturally the active function of brand building and the institutional image is the energy conservation function. If one of them fails, brand generate negative goodwill.

It has to be considered that business objects are adaptive systems developed to produce a predefined result. They emulate the organization of nature. E. g. a tree is an object. Individuals will have accelerated evolution if they can move trees from one environment to another. Brand building is accelerated if the adequate objects are used.

Unicist Ontology of the internal speed for decision making

Decisions have been made when they have been implemented. Before their implementation they are just hypothetical wishes.

The speed of decision making depends on the type of logical thinking of individuals. It has to be considered that speed is defined by the chronological lap between a new fact and the implemented real action to exert accurate influence.

The more evolved the logical thinking of individuals the higher the speed of action:

1) Analogical thinking drives to no decisions because personal needs and beliefs prevail. The speed is “0” (zero)

2) Operational thinking requires making the necessary technical analytical studies to define the problem and the possible solution. This is considered the standard time for decision making.

3) Analytical thinking allows focusing the operational technical analytical studies. This doubles the speed of operational thinking.

4) Systemic (Scientific) thinking focuses on a specific operation which reduces the cost of the preparation of decision making based on the existence of a hypothesis for a solution. This doubles the speed of analytical thinking.

5) Conceptual thinking provides the ontological structure that underlies the operation. It allows defining the essential drivers of the solution. This doubles the speed of systemic thinking.

6) Unicist thinking provides the understanding of the boundaries of the solution allowing the development of a plan B (including an entropy inhibitor) and a plan C (including a catalyst). This doubles the speed of conceptual thinking.

Conclusion

Internal speed cannot be accelerated without producing paradoxical results.

Internal speed evolves with the individual but a sudden acceleration drives individuals towards analogical thinking.

It has to be considered that the mass of the population tends to use analogical thinking at work. Teamwork decisions need to accept that a train has the speed of its slowest wagon (metaphor).

The above mentioned speeds have been empirically confirmed.

Unicist Tweetinar on Unicist Business Objects Building

The Unicist Standard for business objects building defines the norms that business objects have to fulfill to generate results.

Extreme design, the use of unicist modeling and the structure of the ontology of objects allow building unicist business objects.

Unicist business objects (UBO) are encapsulated adaptive systems that produce predefined results that can be inserted in work processes to increase productivity and quality and to save energy.

Classification of objects based on their use

Drivers: they are objects that produce results within work processes.

Catalysts: they are objects that are designed to accelerate drivers, tasks or processes.

Entropy inhibitors: Their role is to minimize the entropy of processes and results.

Inhibitors: They are objects to inhibit anti-conceptual actions in processes.

Gravitational objects: They are objects that generate an influential context that promotes the need of the results provided by tasks, objects or processes.

Objects do not substitute people’s responsibility, they provide a safer, faster and energy saving solution to be installed in work processes.

That is why objects can only be installed in organizations where the leaders assumed the responsibility for the results produced by the processes they manage.
