Structureless management: a description of the concept, methods and methods

The name of this control method reflects its whole essence, that is, the absence of any clear and definite structure, and hence the need for its creation. The structureless management of society is carried out using the media, various rumors and forecasts.

General description of the concept

The implementation of such activities is dictated by the need for control without direct impact on the recipients. Unlike all structural management methods , in this case, pre-built management structures that function even before the start of the process are completely absent. Information is distributed unaddressed in an environment that can process the information received and establish some relationships between them. The combination of the constituent elements, in turn, form new structures generated by the environment itself.

Structural-type management itself appears due to structureless. The basis of the latter lies in statistical analysis and addressless management of various information in a controlled environment. Such methods lead to predictable desirable changes in statistics. It is not required to influence in any particular way the formation of new structures, since they are created as circular data are distributed unaddressed.

Comparison of structural and structureless methods

The process of implementing a managerial function and the impact on company employees is carried out in two known ways. As a rule, both options follow one main goal - enhancing staff work, as well as setting the right direction for creative and other active endeavors.

In total, there are three main methods of managing a structural unit:

  • economic;
  • organizational and administrative;
  • socio-psychological.

The difference between any structural methods is the direct impact of the subject on the control object. This method is also called directory-addressing. Unstructured methods involve programming the object of influence on self-awareness and subsequent self-government. In addition, the structural method is the solution of a problem within the framework of an already organized unit (management environment), which may be played by a factory floor, a military unit, a ministry, or a specific institution.

Media Management

As you know, the media is an excellent tool for influencing society in the hands of its owners. It is logical to assume that a chain of consecutive links of management sooner or later leads to the government of the country and the highest supranational structures. Such enterprises comprehensively affect the consciousness of the layman by both structural and structureless management methods.

A simple example is television advertising and the TV industry as a whole. “Blue screens” easily attract a wide audience of several million or even billions of people, showing an event in a certain light. A purposeful interpretation of the event or the opinion of an authoritative person about what happened is the main way to influence a potential audience.

Unstructured methods like television commercials during interesting films and programs create the so-called kaleidoscopic type of thinking in people. Due to this, in the future, any information from the TV screens instantly materializes and adapts to the realities of each control object.

Unstructured impact through the media

Creating a febrile panic mood

In a panic, people come to general confusion and horror. In case of fever, he is overly excited, bustles, worries and makes hasty decisions. History has many targeted influences and throwing false information into the enemy camp in the war. Thus, strong and trained soldiers often lost the battle, when the enemy sowed panic in their ranks before the start of the battle.

The use of structureless management at one time destroyed the Soviet Union. The perestroika years were filled with similar febrile panic moods, which were supported by throwing in various information about a shortage of a product: tobacco, alcohol, toothpaste and even light bulbs. Thanks to this approach, the unstable situation in the country that soon formed contributed to the unanimous decision of the population on the need to introduce changes and restore order.

Forecast Management

In particular, this category includes astrological direction. Millions of people read the morning newspaper, which always has a column with forecasts for each zodiac sign. Theoretically, astrological omens, unaddressedly woven into the everyday environment, are able to control a person’s choice at any given hour throughout the day.

In addition to astrological forecasts, this includes economic ones, which are equally considered an effective option for structureless management. An example is TV economist George Soros, promoted by globalizers. With his live broadcast of a yen depreciation, he has the power to trigger a financial crisis throughout Southeast Asia.

Auto Sync Mode

An interesting effect, which was later called the auto-synchronization mode, was observed in animal communities. For example, if in a flock of pigeons or a herd of horses 5-10 percent of individuals began to perform at the same time some actions, then the rest of the members began to do the same. A similar effect was observed in human society, which was certainly used in one of the methods of structureless management.

A countermeasure against this method of manipulating consciousness is raising the degree of understanding of people who are involved in control processes. However, in any society, you can set a certain desired corridor of possible scenarios for changing behavior in this way using the same 5-10 percent of “decoy ducks”.

Rumor management

This method has been used successfully at all times. From the very beginning of trade, a couple of enterprising merchants could, in the presence of a line of buyers, start a conversation that their goods would soon rise in price due to a massive shortage in the market. Hearing such speeches, most people will make an unambiguous decision that it is necessary to purchase the goods in question from these merchants "in reserve". Such a scheme is one of the oldest structureless methods.

This method also works, if necessary, when two groups of people collide with each other. Opposite and clearly contradictory information is introduced into two different environments. A vivid example is the competent combination of structureless and structural methods of conflict management in Ukraine. The unaddressed distribution of data predictably affected certain groups of people and their perception of a particular situation.

Rumorless control

Religious and secular ethics

Moral attitudes, imposed by the dogmas of various faiths and secular ideologies, are quickly absorbed and firmly fixed among the majority of members of an environment. The fundamentals of religious teachings, which are explicitly stated on the pages of books like the Bible or the Koran, program a person to perform certain actions in specific situations. Following my belief, a follower of a religion unconsciously memorizes stereotypes of behavior. Such a process takes place, again, with the help of structureless control of this person.

The famous German leader Karl Marx inspired many people the fact that the world belongs to the proletarians, and the workers are the vanguard and engine of society. Thanks to this error, a considerable proportion of Russians still await the very “exaltation” of the common people. It is not difficult to identify the simple truth that even in this case, without knowledge of the fundamentals of governance, these people will not last long at the top of power.

Leader Management Scheme

If there is no way to influence society directly, then it is worth doing it through its leader. As such, the main person in any structure can act: the editorial office, research institute, factory, special service or ministry.

The leader is inclined to listen to the recommendations of his "secret advisers", which are always in any organization. Usually these are people who are inclined to "root for the cause." Attending any conferences and meetings of specialists in their field, such advisers are grouped around “authorities” and draw new trends from them.

Armed with fresh knowledge and recommendations, “secret advisers” tell the leader about them, and he, in turn, brings all the information to the rest of the staff and carries out the necessary reforms in his own organization. Thus, it turns out to establish yet another version of the structureless management of society through the person leading it.
