Unicist Family Business Strategies – The Unicist Standard

Business-driven family companies and family-driven companies are highly conditioned by the family archetype of each culture and the solution given to the roles that this fulfills. In the cultures where the affective predominates over the economic and social role, families that have businesses are highly inefficient and are always at risk as they don’t stabilize as institutions (independently of their members).

In cultures where the roles are balanced, business-driven family companies and family-driven companies are distinct fundamentally for their capacity and speed of growth. Business-driven family companies grow more rapidly.

In cultures where the predominant roles in the family are social insertion and the economic role, families with companies have a powerful influence in the environment. Although structurally they have less capacity to grow, they compensate this with the influence exerted in the environment. In markets with imperfect competition they build very powerful empires.

When we are dealing with business-driven family companies we can state that they are more effective than family-driven companies in the active roles, which are hunting, where one goes out to seek the animal in the market, and agriculture where intensive activities are developed.

An efficiently organized business-driven family company is more effective in passive hunting where it works from the basis of the influence of the family brand, and passive agriculture where extensive is what counts.

Therefore each business-driven family company must know what market niche to occupy where it can best achieve results.

We want to highlight that in marginal markets with highly imperfect competition, these concepts have no effects in reality, which is managed by non-company relationships, where the family-driven company has the weight of the family in that society.

Benchmarking General Electric: The Nature of Innovation

Managing the nature of innovation is basic when dealing with growth. This is something General Electric manages since the era of Thomas Edison.

The Unicist Standard in Innovation Management deals with the object driven technologies that are necessary to manage innovations.

You will find the information on the nature of innovation between the lines of Jeff Immelt’s lecture, CEO of G.E:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YOEwYAXH10

Next week we will be providing the ontology of innovation in order to help benchmark General Electric.

The Unicist Value Analysis for Continuous Improvement

The Unicist Value Analysis has been developed to reduce costs and increase quality and productivity of processes that behave as adaptive systems. This method is included in all the Business Objects that deal with costs, quality and productivity.

Value analysis began at General Electric Co. during World War II. It was developed by Lawrence Miles, Jerry Leftow, and Harry Erlicher at G.E. It was designed to deal with systemic problems.

Processes become complex when soft variables participate in them. Processes behave as adaptive systems when human components participate and the “traditional” value analysis is dysfunctional.

As soon as causes-effect relations cannot be considered as valid because there are bi-univocal cause-effect relations a different technique needs to be applied.

The Unicist Value Analysis was developed in 1981-82. The first applications were at: Citibank, Renault, Bayer and BASF. It is a method that considers the technical analytical aspects of process and the fundamentals of adaptive systems’ processes. See graph.

The fundamentals of this method are:

For its maximal strategy:

-Utility
-Systemic Functionality
-Redundancy by substitution

For its minimum strategy:

-Opportunity (Taxonomic)
-Specific functionality
-Operational redundancy

It is necessary to diagnose first what kind of a process one is dealing with.

The evolution level of a company defines the reach of the application of value analysis.

Upgrade the conceptual design of processes

The Unicist Standard in engineering integrates unicist reverse engineering to apprehend fundamentals with conceptual engineering to design processes. The unicist object driven technologies will help you to integrate and upgrade processes.

The Unicist Strategy Programs at The Unicist Corporate University are analogous to medical residencies. Dealing with business strategies, diagnoses, scenarios and action plans in business cannot be solved with case studies.

Case studies are autopsies, that are necessary to learn the “language”, but only “live” cases can be the basis for approaching strategies, diagnostics and scenario building. Unicist technologies manage reality based on its nature.

Therefore, only “live patients” and real cases with personal involvement make the learning of unicist object driven technologies possible.

Aesthetics is the core of Steve Jobs’ business approach

Apple’s success is based on the capacity of perceiving the latent needs of the market and delivering original innovative solutions.

We hope you made the effort to learn from Steve Jobs about Apple’s fundamentals as we proposed.

If you still haven’t done the “homework” we recommend watching the video before following the reading of the answer to the questions posted:

http://unicist.net/it/learning-from-steve-jobs-apple%E2%80%99s-fundamentals/

We consider that the core fundamental of Apple is aesthetics. But aesthetics is not beauty. It goes beyond.

Apple products are aesthetic because they complete the needs of their prospect clients, they are desirable and harmonic. They also include inaccessible aspects that basically deal with innovative technology.

It can be said that the integration of an innovative technology with the fulfillment of latent needs are the core fundamentals that drive Apple’s business.

Steve Jobs is a doer himself

“Doers make things happen. Therefore, more than ever before, it is time for doers in the world.”

Doers are very special individuals. They are basically individuals whose fulfillment is based on doing transcendent things. They need to achieve what they have decided to do. When things cannot be done the easy way, they find the necessary path to make things happen.

“The world is built by doers and enjoyed by followers”. The joy of doers is in the deed itself.

We hope this has been useful.

Natural Laws of Production: The Unicist Standard in Strategy

Producing implies adding value to the beneficiary of a product or service.

Peter Belohlavek’s e-book provides the natural laws of business strategy. We strongly recommend downloading and printing this book in order to use it as a bedside book until you manage the natural laws of business strategy.

It will shift your business life.

Some of the laws follow as an example:

  1. The level of complexity of a production process has to be proportional to the simplicity of the functions.
  2. The quality produced is analogous to the quality of life of those who participated in the process.
  3. Craftsmanship production is based on personal satisfaction and improvement.
  4. Industrial production is based on the existence of an institution that is above the personal identity of those who participate.
  5. …..

Toyota is upgrading its destructive tests

Toyota is upgrading the business by improving the destructive tests in its industrial process.

Traditional destructive tests are material tests which result in the destruction of the component.

Intelligent electronic systems linked to mechanical devices work as adaptive systems. The introduction of intelligent systems implies changing tests beyond the limits of the traditional destructive tests.

The destructive tests of the Unicist Standard deal with the objects included in a unified field of an adaptive system measuring the limits of the functionality of the object and the adaptive system.

Unicist destructive tests are necessary to confirm the limits of the functionality of adaptive systems.

Intelligent cars require upgrading their testing.

Processes need to by synchronic in order to foster growth

Conceptual engineering is a basic approach to ensure the synchronicity of business processes to foster growth.

To ensure the adequate timing it is necessary to design the required speed of action and the incidental acceleration to take opportunities, solve problems and grow. There is no room for improvisation.
