Characteristics of big changes

Big changes necessarily produce conflicts in an organization. Big changes require all the energy of an organization in order to be implemented. When big changes are necessary it is because there has been a structural change of the environment that made an organization dysfunctional.

Big Change Implementation:

  1. Define the nature of the future situation
  2. Define the nature of the present situation
  3. Understand the real need
  4. Design driving objects
  5. Design catalysts to accelerate processes
  6. Define the implementation taxonomy
  7. Implement change

More than 4,000 ontological researches were developed since 1976 until July 2011 in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution, including the development of ontology based and business object driven solutions for businesses.


The Unicist Object driven Continuous Improvement

The Unicist Continuous Improvement, presented by Peter Belohlavek, is based on the systematic improvement of the business objects that are part of the processes of an activity.

This approach minimizes change resistance and maximizes the possibility of introducing the innovations that are necessary because they are installed in objects and do not affect subjects. The Unicist improvement uses business objects as catalysts within the alternative plans B and C prepared in case plan A is not implemented.

Introduction to the unicist management of Change Resistance

Resistance to change can be produced by the change itself or by the intrinsic needs of individuals. When a diagnosis is made in order to improve a business it produces a change resistance in itself.

It is impossible to avoid that the needs of individual be affected. Understanding the functionality of change resistance will help you to manage the information of diagnoses in order to minimize its negative effect.

While pre-concepts are functional to solve the problems of reality, individuals appear to assume the responsibility of making things happen.

The acid test to evaluate individuals’ responsibility occurs when reality changes and the pre-concepts are not functional to solve the existent problems.

In that case there are three possible alternatives:

Case 1: The individual accepts that a change occurred and that he has to learn how to manage the new situation. In this case, learning takes place. (See Unicist Ontology of Learning and its taxonomy in the unicist bibliography).

Case 2: The individual suffers of innovation blindness and cannot see the change (See unicist papers published on the research of Innovation Blindness)

Case 3: The individual resists the change trying to return to the former state.

Change resistance passes through three stages in order to avoid a change:

1) Dominant influence to avoid change – Stage 2 starts if stage 1 fails
2) Manipulative influence to avoid change – Stage 3 starts if stage 2 fails
3) Destruction and self-destruction to avoid change

The Unicist Ontology of Business Viruses

Institutions are entities with artificial life. As such their dysfunctionalities are produced by the people who participate in them. Therefore, it needs to be accepted that the viruses that are found in institutions have beneficiaries who profit from them.

Paradoxically, the profit is not necessarily materialistic. Viruses are installed by individuals when their needs become extreme. Therefore, types of viruses introduced depend on the structural extreme needs individuals have when participating in business organizations.

The maximal strategies produce the most extremely aggressive viruses for organizations. They are driven by the prejudices individuals have that do not fit within the vision of an organization.

The minimum strategy produces less aggressive viruses and is driven by ignorance, which makes people unaware of what is happening, and by introducing “hypothetical” ideas that necessarily drive nowhere.

Humans use mental pre-built structures to approach reality

Object driven thinking is humans’ natural approach to reality. Human mind approaches reality using cognitive objects.

Let us consider an example: The way a chess master approaches a multiple-game party.

This case has been studied by different researchers that concluded that a master recalls the multiple objects s/he has in his/her mind to categorize the situation of the opponents.

A cognitive object is a structure that contains knowledge, the action procedure, the groundings of such object, and the opinion on which it is based.

The knowledge is necessary to build an understandable description of a reality. The action procedure structures the usefulness of the knowledge.

The foundations sustain the meaningfulness of knowledge. Foundations are the basis for integrating the objects into a structure or network of objects.

Opinions are the “doctrine”, or secure knowledge, on which cognitive objects are built.

Based on the book “The Unicist Standard to Manage the Nature of Businesses”.

Unicist Business Therapeutics for Conceptual Engineering

The discovery of business viruses, business hackers, who install the viruses, and the institutional immune systems made by Peter Belohlavek at The Unicist Research Institute changed the possibilities for business upgrades and change management.

This book opens new frontiers for business problems solutions, allowing the use of palliatives while installing the necessary cures.

Unicist Institutional Therapeutics is based on more than 3,000 researches, that begun in 1976, made in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution and their applications in more than 500 companies and 50 countries.

The Unicist Standard in business therapeutics implies dealing with companies’ values, business strategies and business organization. It uses Unicist Business Objects to structure the institutional immune systems and install optimized work processes.

It is absolutely necessary in order to be able to solve growth and profitability problems.

Plan A B C: The Redundant Functionality in Quality Assurance

Quality assurance is the difference that makes a person, institution, work group, system, work or product reliable or not. The purpose of quality assurance is to always have an alternative system to develop any activity. This purpose is related to the “minimum strategy”.

The Quality Assurance concept implies that in the activity, which must bring about an added value, there is a Redundant Functionality and a Self-exclusion System within a framework of a Redundant Operative Method.

There is a redundant system and an “alarm” system in case of failure, which sets plan B in motion. There are as many plans Bs or alternative paths as possible within the systems cost restrictions.

Alarm systems are the sensory system of an organization. Plan A, B and C provide a security framework for operation. Without them, there is no reliability system possible.

Are you changing your Organizational Design? Build your Japanese Park

The unicist ontology for organizational design provides the structure of the organizational process to be used when a business starts or a big change is being implemented.

By just implementing the first step of the Unicist Organizational Design you will know how big the change is.

Steps of the Organizational Process

1) Japanese Park: The first step to define the limits of the environment is letting things work in a natural way.

This demonstrates the functionality of the context and allows defining the possibilities of what needs to be designed. When the values shown by the environment are extremely far away from what is needed the organizational process cannot be implemented.

2) It is necessary to clarify the benefits of the parts involved in a working process. Both the organizational benefit and the personal benefits need to be approached in a “hypothetical” way. This step establishes the expectations of the parts involved.

3) The responsibilities of the parts need to be defined within the limits of the capacity of the individuals to assume them. When it is necessary to develop “maximal strategies” one must consider the capacity of managing risks, of managing uncertainty and the frustration capacity of the participants. The design has to be based on the capacity of individuals to assume the responsibility.

4) The methodology of the work processes defines the logic that needs to be used. This methodology needs to be known before the individuals begin to generate benefits for the organization and for themselves. These methodologies need to be adequate to the level of the participants.

5) The confirmation of the benefits implies that the individuals know the benefits that need to be produced for the organization and for them. The “Minimum Strategies” can only be designed after this has become transparent.

6) Manage the possibility of minimizing costs to ensure the minimum strategy. The objective of this step is to confirm that the costs are within the limits of a minimum strategy.

7) Define the use value of the organization in its unit without considering the different subsystems or individuals that integrate it. It has to be defined what it is that the organization needs to achieve and how this objective will be fulfilled.

8) Define the methods to be used in the organization and how the use of the methods will be measured. The methods need to include the quality assurance and / or quality control system.

9) The cost of the solution that is being designed needs to be confirmed. This implies redefining alternatives that allow cost reductions that do not modify the structure of the organization. This necessarily drives to redefining the previously defined stages seeking for cost reductions.

10) Making the pilot tests. Both destructive and non-destructive pilot tests need to be used. The first test has to be the destructive test in order to be aware of the limits of the validity of the solution.

Japanese Park – The first step

By just observing how the system is spontaneously managed you will know the distance between what happens today and the necessary functionality. This distance defines the size of the change to be implemented.

If the distance is small, just continue with the steps of the organizational design. If the distance is big, a valid change management technology is needed.

If a big change technology is needed, but left aside, the possibility of making a successful change is inhibited.

Unicist Standard Language for Conceptual Engineering

Conceptual design requires making an ontological reverse engineering process. “Copy and paste” is the solution for cloning but not for designing. The Unicist Standard is necessary to develop this conceptual engineering approach.

The Use of the Unicist Standard Language is required to make an accurate conceptual design in engineering.

“Dealing with Human Adaptive Systems necessarily is driven by complexity. Adaptive systems are complex in themselves but dealing with human adaptive systems adds a new complex component which is the ambiguity implicit in human behavior.

The existence of conscious and non-conscious aspects of human behavior produces naturally the existence of an ambiguous environment.

The purpose of adaptive system management is to influence human adaptive systems using the object driven technologies included in the Unicist Standard.

The development of the Unicist Standard Language was necessary to provide a context in order to understand, communicate and influence the management of human adaptive systems.”
