2012, the Year of the Possible

This year The Unicist Research Institute has celebrated the 35th anniversary with the most fruitful research effort in their history having finished more than 600 researches including some of them than demanded far more than 20 years (consciousness, unified field of human adaptive systems, etc). They made 600 new aspects in the field of individual, institutional and social fields become possible.

The unicist approach is based on finding out what is possible in order to focus on it. The unicist approach deals with the “possible”, defined as a noun. It has to be considered that a possibility is a conditional situation while the “possible” is an assertive fact.

What is possible sustains success. Everything that is possible can be achieved. But this has a problem: while it provides the security of what can be done, it demands the freedom of assuming the responsibility for doing it.

The crises in the world happen because something was not “possible” but this situation was disregarded. Failures are always a consequence of someone trying to do something impossible or of something possible that was not done because people did not assume the responsibility.

That is why The Unicist Research Institute promotes:

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

Unicist Tweetinar on Ontologies for Engineering

The use of unicist ontological analysis provided the foundations for conceptual design, reengineering and ontological reverse-engineering.

It allowed the development of the ontological structures of engineering processes that allow the building of solutions for complex adaptive systems.

We invite you to participate in a Unicist Tweetinar with Peter Belohlavek on May 17 from 5:00 to 6:30 pm (New York Time) that includes the Unicist Ontologies for Engineering. It will be developed at http://www.twitter.com/uniciststandard

Process Engineering: Hunting versus Farming

The nature of hunting businesses requires a freedom oriented approach while the farming business requires a security oriented approach.

While the hunter seeks for new boundaries to reach a maximal strategy, the farmer guarantees the production of the minimum strategy for survival.

The natural organization is just a homeostasis integrating the needs defined by the type of business and the type of a company.

The operational type of a company is defined by the integration of enterprising and entrepreneurial attitudes and the type of business depends on the integration of hunting and farming components.

It is necessary to define the trade-off between entrepreneurial and enterprising attitudes consistent with the farming or hunting nature of a business.

Farming and Hunting roles are integrated within a company but should not be mixed. Asking farmers to hunt is as ineffective as asking hunters to develop farming activities.

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.”

Unicist Riddles: The nature of business

In the short or the long run,
living beings and their deeds
are consistent with their nature…

An analogy to guide reflection

The scorpion stung the frog
although they both would be dying in the river.
It was in its nature…

(From the fable “The Scorpion and the Frog”)

Extracted from the book Unicist Riddles (*)

(*) Riddles have many solutions. In the Far East, riddles are used to develop internal freedom and responsibility.
