Social Networks as Adaptive Collaborative Contexts

A virtual collaborative context fosters the development of pastime and professional activities. This is the case of Social Networks which, depending on the segment they belong to, establish the context for commercial actions.

Social NetworksSocial Networks are paradigmatic environments of the Era of Participation. They are used by people in order to demonstrate themselves and to others that they are part of the world.

The feasibility of their use as a medium for network marketing depends on the capacity of generating an asymmetric complementation with the members, fans and followers of a social network.

The use of a social network as a medium requires understanding its structural segmentation and building a compatible network strategy.

In order to work in a collaborative context, the complementation of these roles is fully necessary. The existence of a full reliability of the members and the ideological link among them are basic to produce results.

If the reliability of actions is inexistent, the process of the group is inhibited. If there is no ideological link among the members, there is an extreme waste of energy that endangers the process.

The Factor Zero in Human Behavior: The power of nil

Complex adaptive systems are integrated by a conjunction of “objects”. Mathematically, this integration of objects implies a multiplication of their representative factors. If one of them is “zero”, the whole adaptive system doesn’t work.

Adaptive systems cannot allow the existence of zeros. One zero suffices to destroy a system.

The Factor “Zero” is an anti-concept that destroys any adaptive system. It establishes the groundings for inaction, annulment or destruction.

The ontology of the factor “zero” describes how human inaction, annulment or destruction is sustained by a fallacious ethics.

It is the ethics of stagnant survivors that provides them a feeling of superiority based on their capacity to hinder value adding actions in their area of influence.

Factor “zero” is the integration of suspicion, doubt and unawareness in order to avoid the responsibility of an adaptive system and destroy it.

It suffices if one of these elements exists.

Managing Power: Avoiding the friction caused by inaction

Work implies producing a displacement of something in the real world. Every displacement generates a friction that needs to be managed.

When two people are doing something in a working environment and one of them produces work and the other is inactive, the friction produced is extremely destructive.

It produces a paradoxical situation because:

1) There is an extreme conflict if the friction is not eliminated.

2) If the parts are “lubricated”, there will be no friction but the person who is inactive will continue doing nothing.

3) The inactive person needs to judge what the other part is doing because that judgment sustains her/his self-esteem.

4) Finally, the one who does the work ends up being judged by the one who cannot do it and the conflict escalates to the maximal level.

Therefore inaction needs to be banned from the business world in order to generate added value. “Opinators” are not welcome and intentions do not count.

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.

General Electric, a world leader in innovation

As Nikola Tesla laid the groundings for “Innovative Research Laboratories”, Thomas A. Edison laid the groundings for “Product Development Laboratories.”

The unicist standard for business strategy allows defining the fundamentals of General Electric’s business in order to benchmark its experiences.

General Electric was born together with the “Product Development Laboratories” of Thomas A. Edison. Thus General Electric’s business concept is driven by research in all the fields where it considers there is a possibility to generate added value to the market.

In the development of innovations, the minimum strategy drives toward the building of social capital. This is the central fundamental of General Electric and it is sustained by the diversified “Product Development Laboratories” they have around the world.

General Electric is a leading firm in the different fields it works because, besides being extremely innovative, it is Market Value Adding focused.

Being focused on market value adding allows developing useful researches and strengthening the market bonds by improving the social capital in the environment.

The structural approach to innovations developed by General Electric is an “extreme” benchmark for innovative businesses.

Unicist Family Business Strategies – The Unicist Standard

Business-driven family companies and family-driven companies are highly conditioned by the family archetype of each culture and the solution given to the roles that this fulfills. In the cultures where the affective predominates over the economic and social role, families that have businesses are highly inefficient and are always at risk as they don’t stabilize as institutions (independently of their members).

In cultures where the roles are balanced, business-driven family companies and family-driven companies are distinct fundamentally for their capacity and speed of growth. Business-driven family companies grow more rapidly.

In cultures where the predominant roles in the family are social insertion and the economic role, families with companies have a powerful influence in the environment. Although structurally they have less capacity to grow, they compensate this with the influence exerted in the environment. In markets with imperfect competition they build very powerful empires.

When we are dealing with business-driven family companies we can state that they are more effective than family-driven companies in the active roles, which are hunting, where one goes out to seek the animal in the market, and agriculture where intensive activities are developed.

An efficiently organized business-driven family company is more effective in passive hunting where it works from the basis of the influence of the family brand, and passive agriculture where extensive is what counts.

Therefore each business-driven family company must know what market niche to occupy where it can best achieve results.

We want to highlight that in marginal markets with highly imperfect competition, these concepts have no effects in reality, which is managed by non-company relationships, where the family-driven company has the weight of the family in that society.
