You can apply Sapiens any organization or person, at a professional level or at a private level, who wish to understand and generate knowledge about an object of study of interest, with a defined purpose.
However, the project is especially aimed at the business world, understood as everyone in the economy and business and organizations, everyone in the professional world, especially SMEs, and also the world of education.
Sapiens can be especially useful for freelancers, micro, small and medium businesses and other types of small and medium organizations, although it can also be applied in large companies.
For small and medium organizations that do not usually do research systematically, Sapiens is an accessible methodology to start doing it. For large companies that already do it, it can be used to make new approaches, and also to optimize it, to do it more efficiently.
It is especially useful for making an investigation in a company that cannot consider investing in market research by specialized companies. That is, for more superficial, informal or preliminary studies.
We believe that understanding is essential in order to act, and therefore, in the business world, study and reflection are required before executing any plan. Specifically, Sapiens can be applied in the preparation of reports prior to the execution of projects.
Sapiens can be especially useful for students, teachers and other types of popularizers and educational professionals, although it can also be applied in the world of academic research and scientific research.
Sapiens is a methodology accessible to students or professionals that helps to systematize research tasks and make new approaches. In academic or scientific research, it can be used to make new approaches and to optimize it, to do it more efficiently.
More specifically, students can apply it to the elaboration of:
And teachers and other disseminators and education professionals to:
Since there is no standard procedure for organization and structuring of knowledge and the content in academic works, Sapiens is a possible procedure. It starts from a delimited object of study, but not from a previous hypothesis, which makes it an innovative methodology in this sense. The Sapiens application process would first result in generating the idea of hypotheses.
In some areas its usefulness is concentrated in the generation of the idea of hypothesis. In the humanities and social sciences, it could be applied even in a later phase of research and analysis. Its main contribution would be the incorporation of a holistic vision, unusual in the academic field, characterized by specialization.
For example, in research projects at the end of high school, the modality with the highest probability that can be fully developed with Sapiens would be the modality of descriptive and cataloging works, especially in social sciences, humanities and art. Instead, you may have a greater difficulty in the construction modality of a project, especially in science and technology.
