Strategy Building


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

Business expansion: A sophisticated 3-cushion billiard game

Business expansion requires necessarily “going beyond” the boundaries of an activity. But in fact no one can truly go beyond his boundaries. It is like expecting someone to be able to jump over her/his own shadow.

What people can do is expanding the boundaries based on introducing additional added value to deliver to the environment.

But as the value that pretends to be delivered is such only if it is perceived and accepted by the “beneficiary”, it is necessary to have the necessary critical mass to make a perceivable and acceptable value proposition.

If you are not aware of the 3-cushion billiard game, we suggest watching this short video.

The business expansion process is homologous to the 3-cushion billiard game with one subtle difference. It requires that the 3-cushions have been included before the goal can be achieved. These cushions are:

Expansion of Boundaries

1)      A gravitational force

2)      A catalyst

3)      A commercial driver

The integration of these three elements allows developing a strategy to expand boundaries.

These elements need to be included in the business strategy beginning with the existence of a gravitational force or object. After the gravitational force is included, there has to be a catalyst that accelerates the process and avoids that it be inhibited by the conditions of the environment.

Finally, the expansion needs to be driven by commercial drivers in order to make it become true.

It has to be considered that these three elements are by definition dynamic, ambiguous and fuzzy which makes them very difficult to grasp, design and integrate.

As you have seen in the 3-cushion billiard, this discipline requires having an extreme precision, which demands an extreme preparation. The same happens with business expansions, which demand that the gravitational force and the catalyst exist before the value propositions are made. This is what we call the preparation.

Having the necessary timing to make the process work as a critical mass requires having a high level of objectiveness, knowledge of the functionality and an extreme focus.

This is only possible if the concept of the business is managed and the solution is envisioned. It requires believing in order to be able to see. People who need to see in order to believe cannot expand businesses.

This explains why more than 80% of the new start-ups in the US disappear within the first two years of existence. Start-up businesses, by definition, need to grow. No business can grow if the critical mass cannot be achieved.

Working within the boundaries of a business

To work within the boundaries of a system there is no need to have an extreme level of accuracy in the business process design. Within the boundaries all that exists has proven to be more or less functional.

This implies that it works within a minimum strategy, which requires seeing to believe in order to confirm that everything that is done is functional. It can be said that developing a minimum strategy in business is analogous to a pool game, which is accessible for the majority of the people.

But we would like to give you some information about the level that can be achieved within the boundaries of a business by giving you access to what a champ can do in a pool game:

This video is a demonstration that amateurism can be substituted by professionalism if you are willing to pay the prices and your market demands it.

We strongly recommend preparing to expand businesses unless you feel safe within the existent boundaries of your activity. It is only a question of the prices that people are willing to pay.

The Unicist Approach to build Start Up Businesses

Entrepreneurial organizations are those in which the activity is driven by personal and individual goals. Their actions are oriented towards earning value and profit while they are committed to individual and group interests.

There are two extremely different entrepreneurial projects: the “solopreneurs” and the start-up businesses.

Solopreneurs are individuals who make businesses as lone runners.

Sometimes they are considered as a self-employment. But in fact these are the entrepreneurs that are either:

  1. Survivors who are trying to make a living
  2. Specialists, artists, scientists, professors who have a high personal value in a market

The start up business is an incipient enterprise that necessarily begins to work with an entrepreneurial attitude until “permanence goals” are possible.

When companies “are born”, they are either entrepreneurs or survivors. Survivors usually tend to disappear when a crisis affects their market and they also have great difficulties in managing generational change.

Entrepreneurs cannot manage without being in power of the situation they are dealing with. That is why they have great difficulties to grow beyond their own boundaries. But they are extremely powerful in making money within their beliefs.

Entrepreneurial businesses need to transform into enterprises to make a real growth in the market. But they do this only if they are led by someone who is interested in building an enterprise considering the entrepreneurial stage as the first step to do so.

The solitude for actions, for change and power

Solitude has different functionalities depending on the situation of a context. The leader’s final price to be paid is having an absolute solitude of power.

Leaders can share, listen, discuss or participate in any way but, at the end, those who have full responsibility for results, are alone. They have to make a decision that has to work.

The elements that integrate the maximal strategy when dealing with the solitude of power are:

  1. The need of self-fulfillment of the leaders which allows them to apprehend the final picture of the achievements.
  2. The capacity of dealing in an adapted way with the environment making them be perceived as influential individuals.
  3. The self-criticism which is defined by their capacity of doing things “today better than yesterday”.

These elements allow leaders to face the solitude for actions.

The Double Dialectical Logic is Needed to Build Strategies

The unicist strategy is a conscious planning process to achieve possible goals developing maximal strategies to expand one’s boundaries and minimum strategies to ensure survival. It integrates expansive and defensive strategies as a unit.

Unicist Strategy BuildingThe unicist double dialectical approach allows defining interdependent strategies that permit achieving the goal of growing in adaptive environments. It enables the development of stable actions to expand in the environment.

The double dialectical approach in strategy building includes the development of diagnoses to define what is possible to be achieved in order to build the consequent strategies.

The dualistic approach necessarily over-simplifies the strategy building process promoting independent actions to expand and to survive.

The dualistic approach tends towards the development of hypothetical strategies in which survival strategies will necessarily prevail.

The unicist reflection process “action-reflection-action” is the technology to be used to transform dualistic logical approaches into unicist double dialectical approaches in order to define strategies.

Launching of the Object Driven Organization Spin-offs

The campaign to introduce worldwide the Object Driven Organization technologies will be launched on March 4, 2013

The unicist object driven organization emulates the organization of nature to accelerate processes and save energy.

The object driven organizational approach transforms the business architecture into business processes that include objects to save energy and increase results. It allows developing objects that work as adaptive systems with the necessary quality assurance integrating the peopleware, software and hardware of organizations.

The development and use of catalyzing and gravitational objects allow expanding the boundaries of business generating growth. The unicist object driven organization emulates nature being a breakthrough but at the same time a back to basics.

Nature, as a paradigmatic complex adaptive system, is organized by objects. The unicist organizational approach is based on emulating nature to manage businesses as adaptive systems.

The unicist object driven organization is the natural way to organize based on the knowledge of the ontogenetic maps of a business and its functions.

It implies integrating business objects in the business processes that allow managing the adaptive aspects of businesses accelerating the business processes while saving energy.

Object driven marketing, object driven strategy, object driven management, object driven continuous improvement, object driven negotiation and object driven leadership are paradigmatic examples of the object driven organization.

Why use the Unicist Double Dialectical Logic?

The unicist double dialectical logic uses the dualistic operation of neurons to build a mental emulation of the structure of nature that allows dealing with the adaptive aspects of reality, managing the integration of their double dialectical behavior. Unicist thinking is the name given to the process that allows building the double dialectical logic.

Unicist thinking allows emulating in mind the structure of adaptive aspects of reality in order to manage them. It provides the necessary operating system to manage adaptive systems to expand the boundaries of businesses and infer future scenarios in order to adapt to them.

It is necessary to diagnose, build strategies and design business architectures. It provides the structure to understand the fundamentals of businesses and integrate the fundamental knowledge with the technical analytical knowledge to make decisions.

The unicist reflection process: action-reflection-action is the technology to be used to transform dualistic logical approaches into unicist double dialectical approaches in order to define complex adaptive systems. This technology allows starting with the use of disjunctions “OR” and ending with the use of conjunctions “AND”.

It is an upgrade that is up to you…

Unicist Thinking applied to Businesses

Unicist thinking allows emulating in mind the structure of adaptive aspects of reality in order to manage them. It provides the necessary operating system to manage adaptive systems to expand the boundaries of businesses and infer future scenarios in order to adapt to them.

Unicist Double Dialectical LogicUnicist thinking allows defining the nature of reality in a reasonable and provable way. It is based on double dialectical thinking in order apprehend nature emulating the ontogenetic intelligence of nature.

It is necessary to diagnose, build strategies and design business architectures. It provides the structure to understand the fundamentals of businesses and integrate the fundamental knowledge with the technical analytical knowledge to make decisions.

The discovery of the unicist thinking approach is based on:

  1. The discovery of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature that drives the evolution of living beings.
  2. The discovery of onto-intelligence which is the human intelligence to adapt to the environment and is integrated by the ethical intelligence, the type of thought, and the strategic intelligence.

Unicist Thinking allows emulating the ontogenetic intelligence of nature using the double dialectical thinking. It is a demonstration that the dualistic dialectical approaches that Hegel and Marx developed to explain the evolution of human behavior are fallacious.

Functionality of Intuition and Anti-intuition

Dealing with strategies at a personal or institutional level requires approaching reality which necessarily includes the use of intuition. But it has to be considered that intuition and anti-intuition are extremely alike and only can be separated when it is too late and the results are on the table. This is an approach to provide information to make it easier to separate intuitive perceptions from anti-intuitive influence.

“Intuition is the intelligence functionality to approach a reality in an instantaneous way.

When an individual approaches a reality he uses intuition, a non con-scious intelligence, to decode the environment

Ideas, like expressions of intuition, come from the genetic intelli-gence. To build an idea the signs of a given reality have their mean-ing based on preexisting experiences.

Intuition, which is based on genetic intelligence, sets the grounds to approach reality. A logical processing is needed in order to transform intuition into added value actions.

Naturally, since intuition comes from genetic intelligence, it seeks to solve the problem of the one intuiting. It does not seek to add value to the environment; it seeks to appropriate value (although not at its expense). Natural intuition only includes the relationship between the individual and the environment which he is relating to.

Inner freedom is required to access intuition and to avoid internal censorship. Censorship blocks intuition.

Censorship is the first step to transform intuition into conscious knowledge.

When the individual is adapted to an environment intuition generates functional ideas to that environment.

Intuition works paradoxically whenever the environment is uncertain or when the individual feels overwhelmed or is within a declining environment.

Informally we named it “the 180 degrees intuition”, because it pro-poses non adaptive actions to adapt to the environment. It is an anti-intuition that needs to destroy the reality that is threatening the individual.

On the other hand, anti-intuition is an expression of human com-plexes. Anti-intuition’s functionality is to maintain complexes alive and to expand them.”

Unicist Standard: Hypocrisy is a synergy killer

Hypocrisy can be defined as “insincerity by virtue of pretending to have qualities or beliefs that you do not really have”. Its goal is to obtain materialistic, emotional or spiritual benefits.

Thus it is a kind of lie that breaks all the rules of mutual respect and generates others’ internal irritation that necessarily drives to hidden or explicit conflicts. Overselling is a paradigmatic example of hypocrisy in the business world.

Hypocrites cannot be evident. If they are perceived they are naturally expelled. That is why hypocrites develop a subtle or explicit way to seduce their counterparts in order to obtain the benefit they seek for.

Hypocrites only accept to be judged by their intentions while they judge others because of their actions and intentions. Their intentions are always good while the actions and the intentions of others need to be judged. As their intentions are “always good” they do not need to amend the damages they produce.

Hypocrites need to kill the objectivity of all they touch. They are a frequent specimen in environments where ideologies, truth and ethics prevail. They are naturally excluded in any “down to earth” environment.

As objectiveness cannot be accepted by hypocrites, it becomes their antidote. Objectiveness is perceived by them as the “devil” while they pretend to be objective.
