Specific strategies are based on the input provided by the wide context scenarios and the restricted context scenarios.
These scenarios have to provide the information of the gravitational forces that influence the specific activity, the possibilities for developing them, the catalysts that may exist and the inhibitors that need to be avoided or accepted as limits for the strategy building.
An organization or individual is equilibrated when maximal strategies are being developed while minimum strategies are built to ensure the survival.
Maximal strategies are designed to expand the boundaries of an individual or organization, while minimum strategies happen within the boundaries of an organization.
That is why maximal strategies require dealing with uncertainty and risks. Only conscious knowledge of the unified field that integrates the wide context, the restricted context, the specific strategy and the architecture of the solution allows managing these strategies.
Basic Types of Business Strategy
An organization or individual is equilibrated when maximal strategies are being developed while minimum strategies are built to ensure the survival. Maximal strategies are designed to expand the boundaries of an individual or organization, while minimum strategies happen within the boundaries of an organization.
1) Surviving Strategies
These are the strategies that aim at ensuring survival within the boundaries of an activity. These strategies are natural for marginal activities developed by people who work at the “border” of their environment.
2) Defensive Strategies
They are based on establishing the necessary operational and control systems to defend the “borders” of their activity. They are power driven because they need to exert power in order to defend their activity.
3) Dominant Strategies
They are focused on developing the necessary value propositions that can be sustained with their influence. They tend to impose functional monopolies that allow them to establish the standard for their activities in the environment.
4) Influential Strategies
They are based on exerting influence by improving the value proposition of their competitors. They are based on having the necessary speed to be “faster” than the competitors, which allows them to win in their environment.
The unicist strategy and the unicist tactics define the way to develop actions in adaptive environments to generate results. They are based on the existence and functionality of appropriate processes to generate value. The design of unicist binary actions requires managing the unicist functionalist approach and the use of pilot tests to confirm their functionality.
