The Unicist Approach to Continuous Improvement

The purpose of continuous improvement is to increase effectiveness. The active principle that sustains the maximal strategy is driven by innovation and the energy conservation principle that sustains the minimum strategy is based on quality assurance.

Continuous improvement integrates innovation to improve the processes and objects that are being used to implement medium and /or big changes, using quality assurance, the client centered management model and the personalized organization model to ensure the achievement of a higher level of effectiveness.

Maximal strategies are driven by innovation. They are put into action by the implementation of big changes that go beyond the existing boundaries of the present operation and are sustained by the external need represented by the client centered management.

Minimum strategies are driven by quality assurance, put into action by the development and implementation of medium changes and sustained by the personalized organization that ensures an effective participative action model.

Business Architecture: The Unified Field of Institutions

Institutions are considered as entities that seek for permanence, being driven by their mission and the rules that regulate their behavior in the environment.

This defines the archetype of an institution that is homologous with the phenotype of a living being.

The institutional phenotype is defined by the natural organization it adopts which is integrated by the structural business model that includes adaptive systems to expand and administrative systems for the energy conservation of the institution.

The energy conservation function defined by the institutional unified field is given by the strategy it has, which includes both the maximal strategy to expand beyond the boundaries and the minimum strategy to survive.

The Breakthrough of the Unicist Universal Architecture

Before the unicist approach was developed architecture had multiple approaches to solve its tasks in the multiple fields of application.

Unicist Ontology of Functional ArchitectureThe unicist approach introduced the approach to architecture based on a unicist structural functionalist approach: unicist because it manages a specific reality as a unified field; structural because it defines the unicist ontological structure of such reality and functional because it uses the ontogenetic maps and objects to manage its functionality.

This requires a sound knowledge of the operational aspects and the nature of the field where something needs to be built.

Architects are individuals who make something exist that did not exist before. They are a sort of creators who have assumed the responsibility that this creation becomes useful, aesthetic and solid.

This role of architects has been socially accepted since they exist, which makes legitimate the fact that their earning be proportional to the value of their creation.

The original role of architects is the field of construction but it extended to those capable of building of any entity that can exist in itself and is useful, aesthetic and solid.

That is why there exist architects in many fields such as product architects, IT architects, sound architects, marketing architects, business architects, etc.

Vitruvius was the one who was able to describe and define their role in the 1st Century B.C. He was the one who described the ontological structure of their function.

The unicist approach to architecture includes the need to know the ontological structure of what is being built in order to ensure its utility, aesthetics and solidity.

Unicist Architecture is a structural functionalist approach to building. This building may or may not emulate nature. What the architects need to manage is their integration in a unified field with the project they are dealing with defining its utility, aesthetics and functionality.

Ethical Intelligence as the Driver of Adaptive Business Processes

The ethical intelligence included in the institutional archetype of an enterprise defines its level of adaptiveness in the market. The level of adaptiveness is implicitly included in the business strategy and the business architecture of a company. It has to be considered that there are two basic attitudes in business:

Ethics is a human intelligence that gives support to the individual’s capacity to adapt to an environment. Ethical intelligence is the basis for: added value generation, individuals influence on the environment, time management, strategic planning capacity and focusing.

Ethics is a human intelligence that gives support to the individual’s capacity to adapt to an environment. Ethical intelligence is the basis for: added value generation, individuals influence on the environment, time management, strategic planning capacity and focusing.

  1. An Adaptive attitude that allows influencing the market while being influenced by it.
  2. An over-adaptive attitude that drives to dominate, submit or oppose the market.

Adaptive processes are implicitly complex; this implies that the market and the company need to be considered as a “unified field” in order to be able to exert influence while being influenced. But this complexity needs to be simplified in order to make work processes manageable by anyone.

Therefore adaptive business processes, including adaptive automation, demand using behavioral segmentations to define adapted actions that require identifying the counterpart that is being influenced. It requires being client focused while obtaining the corresponding benefits as a counterpart.

Client Centered Management is the organizational meta-model that establishes the rules to be considered by companies that have decided to develop an institutionalized strategy in their market. It emulates the adaptive behavior of nature.

This client orientation allows developing adaptive automated processes that include the use of business objects and commercial objects that simplify the adaptive process and ensure results. The adaptive automation is what makes adaptiveness manageable in business.

Therefore the ethical intelligence implicit in the business strategy is what defines the level of adaptiveness of a business process.

Logical Management Tools: Unicist Business Diagnostics

The purpose of unicist diagnostics is to find solutions in the field of adaptive systems.

Unicist Business DiagnosticsTherefore the development of diagnoses, including the implementation of the solutions, is the core activity to develop consciousness that can be done after the previous activities have prepared the context.

It demands a very strong will and inner time to develop diagnoses knowing that they probably will have to be redone in order to build true solutions. Diagnosing and learning from the implementation of solutions is the driver to expand personal maturity.

There is the need of segmenting the diagnosing processes in order to make them more accessible for the different levels of diagnosticians. Symptomatic diagnoses demand a lower level of knowledge and awareness than the diagnoses of the unified field of an adaptive system.

The segments are:

  1. Descriptive Diagnoses
  2. Static Diagnoses
  3. Causal Diagnoses
  4. Conceptual Diagnoses

Descriptive Diagnoses

They are based on a detailed description of the signs (facts) of the adaptive system within the limits of the symptoms defined by the responsible diagnostician or client.

Static Diagnoses

They are based on the development of a diagnosis comparing the signs with the categories of a standard or an ontogenetic map within the limits of the symptoms defined by the responsible diagnostician or client.

Causal Diagnoses

They are systemic diagnoses of the unified field of an adaptive system, in which a systemic compromise is made to deal with the functions of an adaptive system as variables. The limit of the diagnosis is the actual unified field of the adaptive system.

Conceptual Diagnoses

They are the diagnoses of the actual adaptive system and its possibilities for expanding, based on the ontogenetic maps that define its functionality. The limit of these diagnoses is the actual unified field and the possible expansion of the adaptive system.

Business architectural design with the unicist approach

The unicist logical approach to business architecture is based on the design of the business processes in a structural way. This implies designing the adaptive and the operational aspects of businesses in a way that they can be managed by average people.

It includes the definition of the utility, aesthetics and solidity of the business model ensuring the functionality of its genotype and phenotype.

What was not possible in business before the Unicist Logical Approach?

 1)      The development of diagnoses beginning with the nature of a business and ending with its operation.

2)      The development of ontology based, reasonable, understandable and reliable global, country, market and business future scenarios.

3)      The design of synergic maximal and minimum strategies for business growth

4)      The building of business objects to work as drivers, catalysts and entropy inhibitors of business processes.

5)      The management of businesses as unified fields taking advantage of the possibilities while saving energy.

6)      The segmentation of markets including the hard, functional, psychological, conceptual and life-style aspects to influence buying processes.

7)      The integration of fundamental analysis and technical analysis to develop reliable knowledge.

Essential and Functional Concepts to manage Nature

The evolution of living beings is regulated by their essential concepts. It includes an action generating functional sub-concept and an energy conservation contractive sub-concept.

The most difficult human task is the introspection to apprehend the essential concept of a given reality or a living being. It requires reflection, the validation of the conclusions and a long period of accurate prognostics.

Essential concepts cannot be falsified because of their intrinsic characteristic of being essential.

The essential concept’s functional sub-concept is a concept in itself. It includes an action generating verbal function, an energy conservation adverbial function and a purpose defining its vital functionality.

When approaching a functional concept, its action is observed, its conservation is perceived and the purpose is intuited.

The action, conservation and expansion functions define a set. The less perceivable element of such set defines how to approach a concept. The perception of the purpose requires an intuitive approach. Therefore a functional concept must be approached intuitively.

The verbal function of an essential concept is a functional purpose that requires an intuitive approach.

The adverbial function – the energy conservation function – of an essential concept is a concept in itself; it can only be intuited.

The vital function defines de ultimate purpose of the living being or complex reality.

Everyone can use unicist thinking to make decisions

Decisions have been made when they have been implemented. Before their implementation they are just hypothetical wishes.

The speed of decision making depends on the type of logical thinking of individuals. It has to be considered that speed is defined by the chronological lap between a new fact and the implemented real action to exert accurate influence.

The more evolved the logical thinking of individuals the higher the speed of action:

1) Analogical thinking drives to no decisions because personal needs and beliefs prevail. The speed is “0” (zero)

2) Operational thinking requires making the necessary technical analytical studies to define the problem and the possible solution. This is considered the standard time for decision making.

3) Analytical thinking allows focusing the operational technical analytical studies. This doubles the speed of operational thinking.

4) Systemic (Scientific) thinking focuses on a specific operation which reduces the cost of the preparation of decision making based on the existence of a hypothesis for a solution. This doubles the speed of analytical thinking.

5) Conceptual thinking provides the ontological structure that underlies the operation. It allows defining the essential drivers of the solution. This doubles the speed of systemic thinking.

6) Unicist thinking provides the understanding of the boundaries of the solution allowing the development of a plan B (including an entropy inhibitor) and a plan C (including a catalyst). This doubles the speed of conceptual thinking.

Conclusion

Internal speed cannot be accelerated without producing paradoxical results.

Internal speed evolves with the individual but a sudden acceleration drives individuals towards analogical thinking.

It has to be considered that the mass of the population tends to use analogical thinking at work. Teamwork decisions need to accept that a train has the speed of its slowest wagon (metaphor).

The above mentioned speeds have been empirically confirmed.

If you invest the necessary time you will harvest the consequent success.

Adaptive Systems: How does Unicist Quality Assurance Systems work?

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 Operational Method.

Unicist Quality AssuranceQuality assurance is of vital importance in the life sciences field.

In those fields in which the lack of quality is not a life or death, success or failure determinant, the possibility of conceiving a Quality Assurance process turns distant.

There is only quality assurance in those cultures and activities in which there is the attitude that things should be functionally right and certain as far as the value they add.

Elements included in a Quality Assurance System:

  1. Plan A, B, C and D
  2. Redundant Systems
  3. Alarm System
  4. Processes with redundancies
  5. Stop System (stoppage/halt)
  6. Control System
  7. Self repairing/recovery System
  8. Alternative Systems

Without quality assurance there is no reliability in results. The quality assurance concept is very hard to apprehend and internalize. In order to do so it is necessary to see the elements described above within oneself. It is only as of this that a quality assurance process can be developed.
