Hypothesis 2x is the foundational assumption of orgtology. Derek Hendrikz Devised Hypothesis 2x in 2018. His aim was to give a foundational assumption to the eight theories of orgtology. In orgtology we hold that performance and relevance create an inverse duality. This duality enables organisations to exist. Performance is receptive and perfects a known past. It does so through translating purpose to efficient process. Relevance is projective and creates an unknown future. It does so through translating intent to effective strategy. Purpose enables performance and intent ensures relevance. They are dual because without one the other loses meaning. They are inverse because they draw from the same resource pool. The hypothesis is: If two organisations have the same purpose and intent, they will show different results because the algorithm that this binary creates will have to adjust to the unpredictable and irrational nature of the abstract dynamics that human minds create. E.g., we use operational targets to measure the processes that drive the purpose of Org. In so, we use strategy to achieve our intent. According to the hypothesis, abstract dynamics will change the results of similar companies. Even if their operations and strategy are the same, the results will still be different. They can have the same purpose and processes, intent, and strategy. They could hold the same resources and run within the same context. Yet, the humans that run them can never be the same. Human consciousness allows us to anticipate a future. This influences the way in which we survive. Therefore, we will always aim to negotiate the most favourable future position for ourselves. This dynamic will change any algorithm. In Hypothesis 2x, the “2” shows a relevance / performance duality, and “X” the unknown. “X” is the unpredictable element that will change the outcome of a duality. It makes things unique. In this hypothesis, the relevance / performance binary is the dependent variable. An abstract dynamic is the independent variable. We assume that such dynamic will change the result of the binary. When you add abstract dynamics to logical flow, you will get something unique. We refer to the “x” as an X-Factor. It is what makes organisations unique.
About a hypothesis...
A hypothesis (plural hypotheses) is a proposed explanation for a phenomenon. For a hypothesis to be a scientific hypothesis, the scientific method requires that one can test it. Scientists generally base scientific hypotheses on previous observations that cannot satisfactorily be explained with the available scientific theories. Even though the words "hypothesis" and "theory" are often used synonymously, a scientific hypothesis is not the same as a scientific theory. A working hypothesis is a provisionally accepted hypothesis proposed for further research, in a process beginning with an educated guess or thought. A different meaning of the term hypothesis is used in formal logic, to denote the antecedent of a proposition; thus in the proposition "If P, then Q", P denotes the hypothesis (or antecedent); Q can be called a consequent. P is the assumption in a (possibly counterfactual) What If question. The adjective hypothetical, meaning "having the nature of a hypothesis", or "being assumed to exist as an immediate consequence of a hypothesis", can refer to any of these meanings of the term "hypothesis".
