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.

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.

Rediscovering the client: Client Centered Management Model

Client Centered Management is a breakthrough and a back to basics to provide an adequate environment to grow. It is a management model that was developed to establish the rules for an optimum use of the company’s energy so as to satisfy its internal and external clients. When talking about the external client in the company we necessarily refer to the customer and the shareholder.

Client Centered Management (CCM)CCM is a meta-model to provide result-assurance, client orientation and secure added value to an organization. It is the natural model to expand businesses.

The principles that integrate the CCM meta-model are:

1. Divide the processes into client-supplier units

This division aims at determining which operating units have a clear “output” so as to be suppliers and which have a clear “input” so as to be considered clients.

2. Minimize intermediaries

This principle follows the natural concept of “the larger the number of intermediaries, the bigger the entropy”.

3. Services or products received are paid for

This principle makes the organization become more aware of costs and benefits and enables negotiating goals to obtain measurable and predictable results.

Maximal Strategy:

4. Each client has only one supplier

The principle that each client has only one supplier defines the role of the supplier which drives towards a solution driven approach and not only a task driven approach.

5. First giving, then receiving

It implies that services are paid for once rendered and not during the rendering process or in advance. There can be grounded exceptions to this in the organization.

6. Delivered out of time is considered undelivered

In practice, it ends up in an incentive system for each delivery on time and a punishment system if the dispatch is made out of time.

Minimum Strategy:

7. Every client may change his supplier

The organization’s success is given by its capacity to satisfy the clients’ needs. This obliges the organization to manage the unfulfilled situations a supplier may have.

8. He who needs claims

“He who needs claims” is a principle based on the KANBAN approach which is closely associated with the natural tendency of satisfying one’s own needs.

9. Each supplier counts on his client’s trust

One of the basic principles of any successful large company is having a high reliability level. Reliability and trust are “sine qua non” principles for CCM’s application.

Unicist Approach: the Nature of Adaptive Systems for Work

Businesses are typical adaptive systems. We use the word “business” as a synonym of “work”. Businesses need to adapt to the environment in order to achieve the permanence of their transcendent goals and the personal goals of their participants.

Work as an Adaptive SystemAdaptive systems for work are entities that interact with the environment having the characteristics of a complex system but with an implicit and explicit duty to produce a predefined result.

Work is an environment that generates the need of adaptive systems in order to produce results and administrative systems to use and control the methods used.

The maximal strategy implies achieving or overcoming the planned results using procedures with the necessary flexibility and controlling them based on the feedback of the market.

The minimum strategy is based on using strict methods that use rigid procedures and intrinsic control systems based on accepted standards.
