Root Cause Management


Management Systems (IT) based on Root Cause Management

People’s perception is driven by their Conceptual Short-Term Memory that is sustained by the concept they have. Therefore, IT systems need to be based on the concepts that underlie business functions. This approach is the core of adaptive systems, intelligent systems and interface design.

The Unicist Management Systems are based on the Conceptual Management Model that was developed to increase the effectiveness of organizations by integrating fundamentals and technical analytical knowledge in the management processes. The Unicist Management System includes:

A Business Intelligence System: to build competitive intelligence, critical intelligence and structural intelligence and to build the context of businesses.

Unicist Contingency Rooms: to transform urgent problems into structural solutions.

Performance Management System: to monitor the functionality of both the systemic functions and the adaptive functions of businesses.

Unicist Conceptual Design Groups:  to develop the dynamic business process architectures using the Extreme Design technology that has been developed to deal with complex adaptive environments.

The Unicist Management Systems integrate the existing systems of organizations. The Unicist System provides the root-causes of the business and its context.  It also works as a Decision Support System that can be used in situation rooms.

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. https://www.unicist.org/turi.pdf


Unicist Ontology to deal with adaptive systems

Adaptive systems are systems that have been designed to interact with the external and internal environment. To be able to organize by objects it is necessary to use both adaptive and administrative systems to organize the work processes.

Adaptive systems are necessary to expand the boundaries of work.

Thus, continuous improvement, customer relationship management and project management are paradigmatic cases of adaptive systems in work processes.

Adaptive systems are necessary to provide the maximal strategy based on their flexibility and feedback capacity while administrative systems are necessary to establish a secure operational and control activity.

The use of adaptive systems in the companies has been disregarded in the past because the control and operational activities prevailed over the market growth and competition.

Unicist Reliability System: An entropy inhibitor for teamwork 1

The respect and fulfillment of the agreements within groups on time

Groups make agreements to make work, research or learning more effective. These group agreements are not optional for their members. They are mandatory and cannot be renegotiated. Thus the developments of working agreements within the limits of the actual possibilities of a group are fostered. When group work turns to be reliable, results can be excellent.

Reliability is basic for any relationship and therefore necessary for any development. The commitment with the agreements implies the respect of others and ensures teamwork.

The fulfillment of the planned activities on schedule

Work, research and educative activities have been designed following the ontology and the corresponding taxonomy to sustain the efficacy of participants. The unfulfillment of the terms of delivery generates problems to participants. They will have to achieve the objectives in spite of not having the technology, tools, knowledge or information required to develop their activity.

The difficulty to produce results arises and so does the entropy of the system. This entropy includes the weakening of personal activities, the possibilities of an adequate teamwork and the bonds among the colleagues of the groups.

The delivery of the defined works on time

Work, research and learning activities imply the fulfillment of deliveries on a predefined schedule.

Communitarian responsibility and efficiency require the delivery on time. Time implies having the habit of reliability to develop value adding activities. Works have to include all the aspects that were defined that the participants would provide. Added value delivered out of time is a useless cost.

Adaptive solutions are the next step in business management

Adaptive IT solutions are systems that have been designed to interact with the external and internal environment. Nowadays, there are multiple programming solutions available to sustain the unicist adaptive architecture. The solutions include aspect objects architecture with unicist logical inferences to manage adaptiveness.

Adaptive IT ArchitectureThe evolution of Information Technologies allowed integrating the adaptive aspects of business management in the operational systems of companies.
The integration of the unicist logical approach and the resulting business objects included in the business processes within an adaptive IT environment allows driving business processes to the next level.

To be able to organize by objects it is necessary to use both adaptive and administrative systems to organize the work processes. This widened the possibilities of companies to expand the boundaries of their activities within an environment of assured quality.

The level of adaptiveness varies according to the needs of the system. There are four levels of adaptiveness that can be managed:

1) Analogical drivers

This level is based on the recognition of the significant behavioral patterns of the segments of a market.

2) Rules based drivers

This level is based on the use of analogical patterns and the logical rules defined by the fundamentals that influence the buying processes.

3) Empirical drivers

This level is based on the previous level and the integration of mathematical models to infer behavior based on the observable aspects of the fundamentals that participate in the buying processes.

4) Objects based drivers

This level is based on the previous level plus the use of conceptual commercial objects that work as interdependent drivers to influence the attitude of the buyers. The feedback of the market is defined by the results produced by these objects.

Implementation adaptive systems requires following a step by step approach. Most of the people need to learn to interact with the business environment instead of trying to push it.

Logical Management Tools: Unicist Process Modeling using Genexus

The unicist technology for Business Modeling allows modeling business concepts and transforms them into operational procedures.

The Unicist Business Modeler uses the Unicist Ontological Algorithms that have been researched and developed, the Unicist Standard Language and the Facts of an activity to define the necessary processes and objects to develop a business.

It is a conceptual design method to approach businesses, modeling their nature and processes in order to be able to develop diagnoses, build strategies and design their organization. The Unicist Factbook provides the procedure to develop the descriptive, logical and causal diagnoses.

These three activities, diagnosing, strategy building and organizing, require having a model to define the validity of their outputs.

The integration of the collected facts with the information of the unicist algorithms using the Unicist Standard Language allows defining Unicist Business Models.

Organizational Design

Organizational design implies being able to integrate hardware, software and peopleware in an effective way. Effectiveness implies the integration of the efficacy of people with the efficiency of the system that has been designed.

The unicist ontology discovered for organizational design allowed defining the structure of the organization process to be used when a business starts or a big change is being implemented.

The ontology integrates the natural organization with the efficacy of the individuals involved and the efficiency of the system designed to ensure a minimum strategy.

The Natural Organization implies the integration of the natural business model of the activity with the Client/Patient Centered Management model and the Personalized Organization model that are possible in the culture.

Although the structure of CCM/PCM and PO are universal, their way to use them in a specific culture varies according to the dominant myths of the environment.

The Unicist Approach changed the IT Architecture

Until the Unicist Approach was used in IT Architecture, the designs were based on finding an optimal solution integrating hardware and software.

The Unicist Approach integrated the preexisting approaches to hardware and software with peopleware, integrating the IT Architecture with the business process operation.

“Peopleware transforms business architectures into operational business models. Peopleware is defined by the structure of objects that individuals have in their minds which define the models they use when dealing with hardware and software at work.

Peopleware is what allows integrating hardware and software providing the true driver of the business model. It is necessary to understand the organizational equilibrium laws, the natural organization and the object driven business model in order to manage peopleware.

When peopleware has been defined, an adequate aesthetic use of software with a solid hardware will make business processes operational.

Peopleware is perhaps the most significant development to provide business operational solutions to companies. It allows transforming administrative systems into adaptive systems to upgrade work processes when managing businesses as unified fields.

Peopleware provides the utility to operational business models allowing software to be user friendly (aesthetic for the user) and the functionality of hardware to become solid.”

Unicist Business Objects Building

The Unicist Standard for Business Objects Building developed by Peter Belohlavek allows maximizing the effectiveness of organizations.

Unicist Business Objects are adaptive systems that have been developed to provide a specific result. Business Objects are complex adaptive systems integrated by sub-systems that work as interdependent objects.

They save energy, usually more than 30%, due to their characteristic of following the taxonomy that is within the nature of the business process that is being solved.

NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute is the pioneering organization in the development of ontology based and business object driven solutions for businesses. More than 3,500 ontological researches were developed since 1976 until September 2010 in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution.


35th Anniversary of The Unicist Research Institute

June 1976 was the beginning of the research of evolution in the field of complexity science. It was focused on approaching the nature of reality which required an ontological approach to the basic research and an object driven approach in the field of application.

The research drove to the discovery of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature, the unicist ontology, the unicist logic, the complexity science research methodology and the human ontointelligence.

This provided the basic knowledge to develop more than 3,500 applicative researches in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution that were finished until September 2010. The research work is still ongoing.

We would like to share with you this celebration giving you access to the book on:

Unicist Ethics: The Ethics of Doers

We consider it will allow you to expand your boundaries in work and businesses.

Ontology based business objects for Quality Assurance

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.

In order for knowledge to be certain, the basis for the use to produce elements, it is necessary to have been ‘redundant” from different objective perspectives, be clear as to the scope of such knowledge (think and say “I don’t know” is to have a self-exclusion system that promotes certainty of what one knows), and count on a method that permits reaching a certain knowledge as of different points of view.

Quality assurance is of vital importance in the life sciences fields. 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.
