Unicist Approach

The Breakthrough of Root Cause Management

There are breakthroughs in sciences and technologies that establish new stages in their field of influence. The gunpowder, the Theory of Relativity, the Internet, the telephone, the television, the computer, etc. are examples of breakthroughs that triggered new stages.

This is also the case of the unicist approach, which is a paradigm shift in sciences, based on the discovery and emulation of the intelligence that underlies nature that allowed finding the concepts that made possible the management of adaptive environments by knowing the root causes of their functionality.

This root cause approach is necessary in all adaptive aspects of human behavior, but has notorious consequences in the social and business fields.

What was made possible:

1. Managing root causes in business: to develop structural solutions based on the unicist concepts of business functions.

2. Developing maximal and minimum business strategies: emulating the intelligence of nature to expand the boundaries of businesses to grow while ensuring results.

3. Managing the root causes of buying processes: to expand markets by managing the conceptual drivers of the segments to be approached.

4. Unified field architecture: using the unicist conceptual structures of business functions to design structural solutions and build architectures.

5. Managing marketing confrontations: which requires developing the conceptual competitive intelligence to understand and influence the action of competitors.

6. Developing asymmetric future scenarios: forecasting the changes of the scenarios based on the use of ontogenetic maps and using destructive tests to validate the conclusions.

7. Organizing by roles and objects: optimizing the organization of processes based on the knowledge of the concepts of the business functions.

8. Researching adaptive systems with open boundaries: based on the use of the complexity science research methodology to deal with adaptive environments.

9. Developing object driven continuous improvement: using driving, entropy inhibiting, inhibiting, catalyzing and gravitational objects to improve processes.

10. Transforming business problems into structural solutions: by installing In-company Corporate Universities that work as “teaching hospitals in business” using conceptual management and the root causes of problems.

NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute (TURI) has been, since 1976, the pioneer in the research of complexity where the roots of evolution and the structure of concepts were discovered. In the business world, TURI developed a Solution Bank based on the structures of concepts, which define the nature of business functions that allow managing the root causes of problems and the root drivers of solutions.

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.

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.


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.

Innovative Engineering Marketing

In order to enter in a non commodities market, it is necessary to undermine the leader ethically, so as to be able to enter in any niche, to maintain this niche or niches and to expand them to other niches and segments.

The  ideological guerrilla implies, for the one who puts it into practice, a series of special conditions:

  • The product has to be more functional than that of the one who dominates the market.
  • The product must have an implicit superior ethic than the one in the market.
  • The action speed must be faster than that of the environment.
  • The organization must work as a compact team.

A product is more functional when the customer realizes and is able to see that it has notorious and functional advantages that have such a superior level of benefits to the point that they may result suspicious.

The ethic of the product and the ethic of the organization have to be of superior order than the environment and related with non satisfied utopias that are caused by the product of the dominant leader.

To be able to introduce a superior product a very high action-speed is needed.

The dominant will try to annul the action, so that, commercial actions must be carried out before the dominant competitor may react.

Success is based on speed. Guerrilla implies hitting fast and returning to the previous position before the competitor perceives it.

A compact team is essential to have speed. It has to be related to the ethics of the organization and it requires very charismatic leaders that are able to face the problems that arise in the market.

The compact team helps to transform decisions into immediate actions in the market.

When the ideological guerrilla confrontation is lost, the legitimacy in the market is also lost; so the loser enters in a marginal position and survives behaving as a marginal organization.

The ontological reverse engineering process

Ontological reverse engineering processes are necessary to apprehend the ontogenetic map of a certain reality that has already been discovered or discover the ontological structure of a function in the real world. This process requires having both technical analytical knowledge and fundamental knowledge integrated them with a unicist reflection process.

Ontointelligence defines the capacity of individuals to deal with complex problems. Ontointelligence is integrated by the individuals’ strategic intelligence, their type of logical thinking and their ethical intelligence.

This defines the focus of an individual’s activity, the value s/he adds to the environment, the capacity to forecast the future and the field in which an individual is naturally successful.

Intelligence evolves when an individual matures. The maturity permits an individual to achieve the maximal level of influence on reality.

Backward thinking implies being able to think from the end to the beginning. Consider a mounting line. It is the capacity of an individual to decompose the final “product” into its components.

When we are talking about ontological reverse engineering it means that in this process the individual is able to find the nature of a specific reality. To do so, an individual has to be able to discover the structure of the nature of that reality.

The ontological reverse engineering process is the basic approach to rediscover the concepts of a reality that have been discovered. And in order to do this, individuals need to discover the components of the “mounting line” that define the final reality until they had found the objects that integrate that reality.
