The Power of Unicist Object Driven Continuous Improvement

The purpose of continuous improvement is to increase effectiveness.

Unicist Continuous Improvement1The 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.

Unicist 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.

The operational aspects of this unicist continuous improvement process can be defined as:

1) Internal Project Managers

There have to be internal project managers who participate in a learning program to deal with a unicist strategic approach to change and continuous improvement.

2) Unicist Change Management Technology

The unicist change management technology has specific objects, procedures and methods to be used to manage change.

3) External Quality Assurance

Quality assurance is a core aspect that needs to be provided externally in order to avoid paradoxical results when introducing changes. The quality assurance process includes both object driven quality assurance and personal control of objects and processes.

4) Objects as drivers, entropy inhibitors and catalysts of change

The unicist approach is based on the use of objects to drive change, inhibit the loss of energy and catalyze the speed of the change. The shorter the transition is, the better the results.

5) Unicist Continuous Improvement Technology

The unicist continuous improvement technology described in the following synthesis allows the development of changes considering the introduction of “changes without changing” based on a participative way to introduce them changing results without changing the real nature of the object/process to be changed.

Conclusions

Big changes have to be considered as necessary changes in order to be communicated internally. They need to be managed integrating the technologies of analytical and fundamental analysis to define the problems.

They need to be sustained by continuous improvement actions and an object driven organization to ensure that the outcome of this change is an effective structured solution and not only a conjunctural subjective approach to solve an extreme need.

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.

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.

The Quality Assurance System defines one’s Reliability

Quality assurance is the difference that makes a person, institution, work group, system, work or product reliable or not.

Quality AssuranceWithout quality assurance there is no reliability in results within reality. The more objective the subject is, the less complex the application of the quality assurance concept becomes. The more abstract, intangible or subjective the result, the more complex this concept management is.

As a final summary of the Quality Assurance process find listed below a synoptic description of elements which includes the Quality Assurance Functional Concept.

The taxonomy is the descriptive one according to order of presentation. However, it implies having a clear understanding of the concept seen as a unit given that the unified field it encompasses may only be apprehended as of this totalizing/integral idea.

Elements included in a Quality Assurance System:

  1. Plan “B”
  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

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.

Unicist Innovations in Business Architecture

The innovation of the unicist approach changed the paradigms of business architecture upgrading the conceptual design and the process design in business. It provided business objects to integrate in business processes in order to save energy and optimize the results.

The understanding of the different type of objects allows building adaptive processes that are driven by their fundamentals and use objects to accelerate their speed of action. The following description will give the basics of the innovation.

The activities of the Unicist Confederation are expanding based on the introduction of the unicist ontology and business objects driven technologies.

The Object Driven Organization of the adaptive aspects of businesses is the technology included in all the “solutions” for business optimization.

The Confederation itself also uses business objects for its growth. These objects ensure the critical mass of the solutions it provides to the market. Business solutions require the use of driving, catalyzing and gravitational business objects.

1) The business objects are the drivers of the activity providing the solutions that generate significant energy savings and optimization of results to their users.

2) The unicist approach, including diagnoses, strategies and architectures of the solutions is the catalyst of the Confederation’s proposals.

3) The emulation of nature in business is the gravitational object that sustains the activities of the Confederation.

This approach segments the market. Basically, it can be said that the object driven approach is necessary for business expansion and convenient for business administration.

The Unicist Fundamentals of Mozilla

A navigator is the person on board of a ship or aircraft responsible for its navigation. The navigator is not the captain, but provides the information to the captain in order to make adequate decisions. Therefore, the navigator’s primary responsibility is to be aware of the ship or aircraft’s position at all times.

A Navigator on the Internet is an object that substitutes the individual that navigates a ship or airplane to position the user in the World Wide Web.

In business there are many activities that are homologous to navigators:

-Market Research
-Strategic Positioning
-Diagnosing
-Scenario Building
-Information Technology, etc.

In order to benchmark Mozilla’s experience we would consider that it is a way to navigate the Internet providing alternatives to the “captain” in order to use the platform as a tool to develop the activity s/he has planned.

The Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) is simpler. It provides basically a rigid navigation platform to ensure that individuals can access information. IE doesn’t pretend to be an adaptive platform. It pretends to be a simple access to the Internet. Thus it is the natural navigator for individuals who just use Internet as an access to information.

The more participative the design of the navigators, the more flexible they can work. The more flexible they are, the higher the level of the “persons” to deal with them.

Mozilla is an example that can only be benchmarked if it is experienced in real use, as well as its comparison with the Internet Explorer Concept.

This benchmark will help you design adaptive systems. The Unicist Standard allows developing flexible designs with quality assurance.

We recommend listening to John Lilly’s lecture, CEO of Mozilla.  You will access the core fundamental of Mozilla’s success.

Are you willing to manage the nature of businesses?

Do you need to manage the nature of businesses because you need to expand the boundaries of your business?

Do you want to manage it because you need to expand but also have a minimum strategy?

Do you wish to introduce innovations that are necessary on the market?

Do you want to grow but also to increase your profit?

If more than one question is answered with yes we recommend taking a look at the Visual Guide to the Unicist Standard you can find at: http://www.unicist.net/index.php#vg
