The Unicist Institutional Maturity Model for Businesses

The maturity of an organization defines the company’s capacity for growth.

The Unicist Institutional Maturity Model (UIMM) has been developed to define the type of strategies and architectures that can be used in a company. The higher the maturity level the more expansive a business can be.

Unicist Institutional Maturity Model – UIMM

There are two entrepreneurial approaches, level A and B that are considered the initial maturity stage of a company.

A) Money driven organizations

Their goal is to profit from the environment in a materialistic way. They are driven by individual monetary goals and manage the business driven by their cash-flow.

B) Power driven organizations

Their goal is to obtain profits following the subjective rules of their owners. They are entrepreneurial organizations driven by the need to follow the non-structured orders of the entrepreneurs.

1) Materialistic driven institutions

Their everyday activity is driven by the guidelines that are strictly followed to ensure the operational results.

2) Ideology driven institutions

Their everyday activity is driven by strict rituals and methods that materialize the ideology. They establish a defined path to behave within the rules.

3) Value driven institutions

Their everyday activity is driven by the methodologies they have. They are strict in the application of their methodologies, which implicitly include the vision of their activity.

4) Transcendence driven institutions

In a transcendence driven institution the institutional vision is used in everyday activity. It has flexible methodologies to apply the vision but strict methods to follow the operational rules.

The maturity of an organization evolves based on the functionality and success of its rules and procedures. The flexibility of its business processes is a consequence of having achieved an adequate reliability level in the application of the methods.

Unicist IT Architecture: an In-company Clinic

This clinic provides the guiding idea to design and build IT Architectures. The maturity achieved by the IT technologies allowed making the next step, the integration of hardware and software with peopleware.

The unicist ontology based and object driven IT architecture is based on using the knowledge of the nature of a process, its components and its context to develop a system.

This allows generating the results defined by the business model. This technology uses a structural functionalist architectural approach to define the processes and the business objects that are needed and reliable to achieve the predefined results.

The Mutation of IT Architecture

The evolution of Information Technology generated its own mutation towards an upper level technology that manages hardware and software but allows the integration of peopleware to provide optimal solutions for work processes.

Peopleware is defined by the structure of objects that individuals have in their minds which define the models they use when dealing with hardware and software at work.

The Mutation

This mutation requires changing the way IT Architecture has to be designed. Peopleware is what allows integrating hardware and software providing the true driver of a work/business model. When peopleware has been defined, an adequate design of an aesthetic software architecture with a solid hardware architecture will make business processes operational.

Peopleware is perhaps the most significant development to provide business operational solutions. It allows integrating administrative systems and adaptive systems to upgrade work processes when managing businesses as unified fields.

Peopleware is part of an IT architecture applied to work process design. Therefore, it requires having or achieving a sound knowledge of the business/work processes that are being modeled.

We strongly recommend taking advantage of the mutation generated by the evolution of the information technologies.

Presentation of the Adaptive Project Management Technology

This Seminar provides the guiding idea to design and manage adaptive projects. The Unicist Project Management (UPM) was designed to manage adaptive projects in which the dynamic interaction with the environment requires managing feedbacks that change a project significantly.

This is the case, among others, of business processes, commercial processes, research processes and organizational processes.

These projects need to behave simultaneously as systemic projects, producing what depends on them, and as adaptive processes, in order to interact with the environment.

The unicist architecture of adaptive project management can be defined by the use of a business objects based execution that is driven by a solution approach.

The development of adaptive project planning includes the use of plans A, B, C and D to manage the adaptive project.

Adaptive Planning to Manage Adaptive Projects

Plan A

Plan A is the basic plan that follows the ontogenetic map of the solution of a project. It is the most participative project planning and management because it is based on the influence the manager exerts on the project.

Plan B

Plan B is a superior plan that includes plan A plus an entropy inhibiting object for the resistance. It is based on inhibiting the entropy by using expertise driven objects and the management of the peopleware of the project.

Plan C

Plan C is a superior plan that includes plan B plus a catalyzing object to accelerate the change. It is based on the use of a technology that allows establishing a superior, although less participative solution for the project.

Plan D

Plan D is a plan to abort the project if the possibilities of success are not given. It includes the development of a succedaneous solution.

New Stage Retreat: The Unicist Maturity Standard

A retreat to synthesize the maturity standard to assess the possibilities of business expansion is starting now. The final objective is to confirm or change the pathway of the new stage of worldwide partnering expansion and to define the Unicist Maturity Standard to measure the conditions of business expansions.

The reach of one’s globalization is defined by the limit of the pronoun “WE”…

The reach of one’s globalization is defined
by the limit of the pronoun “WE”…

It is the synthesis of almost 40 years of applications in more than 500 organizations and thousands of individuals, which allowed confirming that the individual work culture and the business culture are defined by the work / business processes that are being used.

You can access the unicist logical approach to businesses at:
http://www.unicist.org/repo/#Unicist

As it is known, the Unicist Standard was developed to manage the adaptiveness of human actions in the individual, institutional and social fields. It establishes the basic fundamentals that need to be managed in any adaptive process.

The Unicist Maturity Standard has been developed to define the maturity of work processes in the individual and business field in order to define the critical mass an individual or organization has to influence the environment to grow. Growth implies going beyond existing boundaries, which implies “globalization” within a country or in the world.

It is the synthesis of almost 40 years of applications in more than 500 organizations and thousands of individuals, which allowed confirming that the individual work culture and the business culture are defined by the work / business processes that are being used.

The output of this retreat will be transformed into Unicist Maturity Guidelines to be used by our partners. These guidelines will be published on April 2, 2014.

The Unicist Methodology to Research Human Adaptive Systems

The observation room for the Market Labs has been launched. It allows newcomers to become acquainted with the unicist complexity science research methodology. The Market Lab research is coordinated by Diana Belohlavek.

The methodology

There is a general research methodology that has to be followed to define the validity of a unicist ontological structure that is needed to deal with human adaptive systems.

The basic steps are:

  1. Develop the hypothetical structure of the ontology.
  2. Analyze the ontology and divide it into sub-ontologies following the laws of complementation and supplementation (only when necessary and possible).
  3. Define observable results that need to be considered to validate the ontology.
  4. Define the application fields of the ontology to validate its functionality.
  5. Develop the applications beginning with destructive and non-destructive pilot tests to forecast reality.
  6. Develop at least five experiences in the application field differing completely one from the other.
  7. Develop forecasts of at least three periods with full certainty.
  8. Restart the research process every time a deviation occurs.

Pilot Testing

Unicist Ontologies are omnipotent fantasies unless they have been tested. The testing of ontologies implies testing their functionality and requires a precise design of the tests. The “trial and error” use of objects is not a pilot test.

Pilot tests are the drivers of the unicist reflection processes. Pilot tests have two objectives:

  1. Falsification of knowledge
  2. Validation of knowledge

1) Falsification – Destructive testing

Falsification, in the field of complex problems, implies finding the limits of the validity of a given knowledge. To do so, it is necessary to develop experiences in homologous fields until the limits of validity are found. It defines the unified field that can be apprehended.

The falsification process is a destructive test for knowledge that is applied to realities with incomplete homologies. The destruction occurs when a condition is found to demonstrate the fallacy of the knowledge.

2) Validation – Non-destructive testing

Validation implies the factual confirmation of the validity of knowledge. Validation is achieved when knowledge suffices to exert influence on a reality in a predictable way.

Unicist Market Expansion: The confrontation of conquest

The natural path for innovations is the confrontation of conquest.

A confrontation of conquest begins when a new product with no synergy with the pre-existing products is launched. There is also a confrontation of conquest when new markets are sought.

When the products that have been launched do not belong to an existent category and satisfy non manifested needs, the confrontation of conquest begins with the weakening of some occupied niches to introduce the new product (guerrilla confrontation).

The unicist confrontation of conquest requires an empty space occupying strategy when non manifested needs are being satisfied.

The confrontation of conquest requires beginning with niches, continuing with segments and finally covering the market.

Confrontation of conquest implies a differentiation based on a strong preexistent credibility.

The Confrontation of Conquest fails when differentiation is not perceived by the market or when the influence cannot sustain the credibility of the proposal.

Conquest is based on:

  • Empty space occupation
  • Speed
  • Credibility

The first step to conquer is the occupation of empty spaces. The confrontation of market conquest begins based on the positioning in these niches.

To do so there is need for a previous action to open these niches. The action requires a non evident functional or ethical flank attack of the competitors’ solutions. Competition is lost if this flank attack is perceived.

A key factor in this confrontation is having a superior speed than that of the market leader. Higher speed is necessary to penetrate. If conquerors are slower than the market leaders they will just accumulate wishes and costs.

The conquest of markets is based on credibility. First choice positioning can only be achieved having a brand with the necessary objective and subjective attributes.

Thus empty spaces can be occupied with highly differentiated products and having a superior speed than the market defendant.

When a war of conquest is lost, the conqueror becomes a marginal competitor in that market.

Transparency and Reliability of the Unicist Business Arms

Dear Colleagues:

You have witnessed or participated in the turnaround of the Unicist Confederation (UC) and the Unicist Healthcare Confederation (UHC). It was done through the TURIFICATION of the commercial processes of the business arms. The Unicist Research Institute (TURI) was the fastest growing research organization in the world and its growth-model has now been benchmarked by the Confederations.

If you truly participated (action), you can now use the information on Continuous Improvement and Big Changes to do the reflection process, then apply it (action) to the improvement of your work processes and recycle it until you manage how to improve work processes. This process has been a paradigmatic example of the Unicist Continuous Improvement technology.

If you do not have the necessary conscious experience of what “happened”, you can only say that you witnessed a turnaround done in one week.

The main aspects that resulted were:

1) The Unicist Library is absolutely necessary to provide the concepts, ontogenetic maps and fundamentals for:

  • Universities and Business Schools
  • In Company Corporate Universities
  • IT Architecture
  • Knowledge Management
  • Continuous Improvement
  • Business Process Management
  • Business Strategy and Architecture

2) The Unicist Library is a virtual consultant for all those who deal with the concepts of what is being done. It has to be considered that if the concept of what is being done is not known, an individual can only repeat analogous experiences without being able to adapt to the environment.

3) Without participating in learning processes people cannot move from a traditional dualistic approach to a conceptual approach that requires emulating the dynamics of reality in their mind.

4) The market of the UC and the UHC are organizations that have at least a middle level of maturity (3+ in terms of CMMI).

5) LinkedIn is from now on the central relationship building object. The methodology to work in LinkedIn is based on:

a)      Few posts based on the presentation of a triadic structure of information that allows others to judge without participating. It implies competing with World Class alternatives.

b)      The participation in LinkedIn can only be done from Monday to Friday.

c)      The core of the activity is the participation in the discussion of the groups using “exclusively” the unicist debate technology to build social capital by competing and cooperating.

d)     The division of the roles in LinkedIn:
-Relationship building with potential clients.
-Relationship building with potential providers.

6) B2B direct marketing is the natural tool to give access to the greatest scientific breakthrough in the field of adaptive behavior of individuals, businesses and cultures.

7) The low profile of Peter Belohlavek needs to be changed towards an “extreme high profile” as the scientist who led the major research work in the field of evolution and human adaptive systems from physics and biology to social sciences. It is needed to provide the authorship of what is behind the technologies that are provided. (This is still at the beginning stage and a Committee has been constituted to ensure this goal. This Committee is led by Diana Belohlavek).

The era of multiplication is now installed in the UC and the UHC. It was based on the benchmark of the multiplication in research (TURI). It is already working.

This implies that all “power driven organizations” are being left aside unless they make a turnaround in “one shot” (homologous to what we have done); they cannot be transparent or reliable; subjectivism needs to prevail in this type of organizations. This is the final stage of the global strategy of the Unicist Group.

You are welcome.
