Unicist Business Platforms include the ontology of growth

The unicist business platforms are based on the ontological algorithm for business growth. This is what makes the platforms work as virtual business units.

Business Growth is implicit in the architecture of a business. The context for structural growth is defined when the architecture has been designed. But it has to be considered that structural growth is in the details of the architecture and between the lines of the work procedures.

The unicist ontology of economic growth was discovered in 1989 after 10 years of research and country scenario building. Since then, its application to business growth drove to multiple experiences until it could be confirmed in 2011. The Unicist Research Institute used this ontology to grow from a pioneer in 1976 to where it is now.

The unified field of business growth, in unicist standard language, includes:

  1. A context for growth, which is defined by the implicit vision of a company.
  2. The economic growth algorithm: driven by technology, value generation and institutionalization.
  3. Synchronicity: driven by opportunity, critical mass and added value.
  4. Timing: driven by synchronicity, acceleration of actions and speed of actions.
  5. Action: driven by value adding displacement, focused energy and work.

The algorithm for growth allows, on the one hand, diagnosing the possibilities of structural growth, defining its strategy and implementing the business processes to build it.

On the other hand, it defines the possibilities of conjunctual growth. Conjunctural growth implies actions that only drive to the growth of revenue that cannot be incompatible with the above described unified field of the growth algorithm.

NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute is a pioneer in complexity science research. More than 4,000 ontological researches were developed since 1976 until July 2011 in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution, including the development of ontology based and business object driven solutions for businesses.


Conversion of Administrative Systems into Adaptive Systems

Adaptive systems require being used to achieve results and dealing with the feedback from reality in order to make it possible. The integration of administrative systems using interactive adaptive interfaces allows giving administrative systems adaptive functions.

There are several paradigmatic examples of adaptive interfaces. Two of them will illustrate this approach: Windows and the I-phone.

The conversion of administrative systems into adaptive systems requires developing interfaces that need to integrate both the ontological logic of the processes included, in order to allow an intuitive approach to the operation, and the aesthetics of the activity in order to make the use of the system desirable.

The first interface to convert administrative systems into results driven adaptive systems was developed at Renault in 1985.

The intuitive use of interfaces of IT systems implies that they are designed following their natural functionality and the aesthetics of their category.

The ontological logic makes the functional reasoning process of the use of the IT system natural. It requires having used the unicist logic to integrate the different aspect of the functionality of the system.

This demands emulating the mental process of the user of the system following the nature of these processes and not a rational analytical approach.
The use of a predicate logic in the design allows installing the active function to drive the use of the system.

This predicate logical approach has to represent the natural metaphors individuals consider when they use the system. It represents simplification and not sophistication.

The intuitive approach needs to be fostered using an adequate fuzzy logic in order to allow intuition to work. The fuzzy logic is what allows dealing with the feedback of the system. Intuition can only be used when a design is based on a fuzzy logic.

Aesthetics is what sustains the minimum strategy of adaptive interfaces. It requires completing the needs of what the user demands when using the system. The completing of needs requires having a real knowledge of what the different segments of users need and the semiotics of these needs.

Adaptive interfaces make the system be part of the user. They generate belonging. A tennis racket can only be properly used if it is part of the body of the player. An interactive system belongs to its user. It can be said that it generates addiction, but in fact what it generates is the integration with the user.

To do so aesthetics needs to generate the desire to “own” the system. This implies that the individual will tend to avoid sharing it.

Systems interfaces need to have a harmonic design following their implicit intercommunication process. It requires understanding the “harmony and melody” of a system when designing it.

Only being a tennis player allows designing tennis rackets. The Unicist Extreme Design technology was developed to solve this design process integrating IT technology with the knowledge of the work processes.

A functional adaptive system interface is a unique piece of art.

Understanding Cultures: The Archetype of China

The archetype of China is a unique case of a culture that has the capacity to grow based on the internal consistency of its model, a model that became complementary to the globalization process.

We strongly recommend watching the following video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mRlgQKWlnQ

China’s Structure

China is a culture based on the consistency of the social and individual efforts and the capacity of accepting trade-offs to achieve the goals of the country.

The Chinese model has to be understood in itself without comparing it with other countries. It has multiple economic models working simultaneously. It is neither a communist nor a capitalist model. It uses multiple unique solutions which imply permanent trade-offs between the different models to achieve its growth.

The Communist Party can be considered as homologous to the ancient nobility in Europe but representing the interests of China as a country and the needs of its population.

Entering the Communist Party needs to be earned because within the party there has to be an ideological consistency to allow a democratic behavior. The Communist Party is the “Establishment” of China.

Confucius’ Concept

Confucianism is a functional philosophy for a culture that needs to grow in a context of an extremely large country with a large population. Order is necessary to sustain consistency.

Minorities in China have to behave within the limits of the explicit and implicit Chinese model. Censorship and self-censorship are a need to avoid that the culture loses its consistency. But although censorship becomes necessary in this context, it is also the implicit weakness of the Chinese archetype.

Cultures evolve based on their implicit weaknesses. Therefore, a generational change can be expected in this field depending on the new trade-offs the culture will make.

A Shielded Culture

China has been, is and will be a shielded archetype, protecting its culture and beliefs in order to ensure its consistency and allowing making the necessary trade-offs to grow.

This shield was represented by the Chinese Wall in the past, and now it is represented by the multiple regulations that establish the framework of the country.

Maximal Strategy

The maximal strategy of China is driven by the working capacity of the culture and the catalyst for the minimum strategy is their cultural shield that ensures the consistency of its actions. The cultural shield works as a protection from foreign influence and internal distortions.

Minimum Strategy

The minimum strategy is driven by the individual working capacity of its population. The entropy inhibitor, to ensure the achievement of growth, is the ideological shield that ensures the focus of the efforts on the objectives that are being achieved.

The personal capacity of making trade-offs is installed in the population and makes individuals extremely focused achievers.

To apprehend the Chinese archetype it is necessary to understand Doers, avoiding ideological, religious or social comparisons. China was, is and will be unique. China doesn’t base its expansion on exporting culture, but on exporting products.
