E) Unicist Logical Approach


Traditional Management versus Unicist Conceptual Management

This unicist conceptual management approach upgrades, but includes, the preexisting traditional approach to business management. This upgrade is a paradigm shift in management that allowed managing root-causes, developing the conceptual design of solutions, building maximal and minimum strategies and developing the necessary actions to produce results. In other words, what the unicist conceptual management did, was upgrading the management approach to ensure the generation of value.

Traditional Management vs Unicist Conceptual Management

The unicist conceptual management approach integrates:

  1. Business Strategy: The Unicist Strategy emulates the strategy implicit in the intelligence that underlies nature and establishes a maximal strategy to grow and a minimum strategy to survive.
  2. Conceptual Design: This conceptual design defines the unified field of the functions of adaptive systems and defines their dynamic process architecture.
  3. Root-Cause Management: It manages the root-causes of problems and the root-drivers of solutions.
  4. Unicist Actions: This approach defines the actions that need to be done following a logical synchronicity in order to work as a critical mass to ensure results in adaptive environments.

Benefits of the Unicist Conceptual Management Approach:

  • +40% increase of the speed of business growth
  • +25% of increase of marketing effectiveness
  • +20% of cost saving in business processes
  • +30% of complex projects cost saving
  • 99.5% of results assurance
  • 80% of cost reduction for business process maintenance and improvement
  • +30% increase in the efficacy of the participants

This superior level of business design and management became possible due to the discovery and emulation of the intelligence that underlies nature and the discovery that concepts drive human actions. This is the management model of the XXI Century.

The Unicist Approach to Root Causes

A superior level of business design became possible due to the discovery of the structure of the intelligence that underlies nature and the discovery that concepts drive human actions. These actions are triggered by the conceptual short-term memory (CSTM) and stored in the long-term memory (LTM), working as an automatic response that needs to fit into a required functionality.

intrinsic-extrinsic-concept

It has to be considered that unicist concepts and fundamentals define the root-causes of problems and are the root-drivers of solutions. They allow defining what is possible to be achieved and develop the maximal and minimum strategies and actions to make it happen.

The researches allowed defining the triadic structure of the intrinsic concepts that regulate the evolution of living beings and the extrinsic concepts that underlie the functionality of inanimate entities that define their nature. Concepts include maximal and minimum strategic functions to grow and to ensure survival and are integrated by the fundamentals that drive the functionality of entities.

This drove to the discovery that the root-causes of the functionality of any process are given by the underlying concepts and their fundamentals. (See the Ishikawa’s root-cause diagrams)

The Unicist Research Institute developed, since 1976, more than 5,000 researches to develop the unicist ontological structures that define the functional concepts in the field of social, institutional and individual evolution.

The unicist approach to business is based on the research of the concepts that underlie business functions that allowed dealing with their nature, managing the root-causes of problems and the root-drivers of solutions in order to define structural business solutions that:

  • increase significantly the effectiveness of business processes
  • allow expanding the boundaries of businesses without changing their concepts
  • reduce notoriously the costs
  • ensure the achievement of results

Conceptual design is the approach needed to organize based on the concepts of business processes. It has to be considered, that the structure of concepts is timeless (it exists while the function exists) and cross-cultural, while their operational functionality is environment dependent. As human actions are driven by the concepts they have, the accuracy of conceptual design is the core of business organization in adaptive environments, where efficacy and efficiency need to be integrated.

Conceptualization the key to Adaptiveness

Conceptualization sustains any proactive action in the field of adaptive behavior. That is why it applies to individual, institutional and social behavior. Conceptual thinking is an abstract thinking process that is based on discovering the concept at an operational level, emulating their structure in mind, and transforming this emulation into value adding actions. In plain language, conceptualization implies knowing what one is truly doing, having the concepts of the actions, which includes having their functional structure and being able to transform the concepts into value adding actions.

Conceptual Management: A Paradigm Shift in Business

The paradigm shift is given by the conceptual approach to businesses and its integration with the existing technical analytical approach. It allows integrating the knowledge of the empirical observable facts with the knowledge of the “nature of businesses” in order to define what is possible to be achieved and the probability to make it happen.

The research on how the logical thinking process works, allowed defining four levels: operational thinking that deals with the “HOW”, analytic thinking that deals with the “WHAT”, systemic thinking, that deals with the “WHAT FOR” and conceptual thinking that deals with the “WHY”.

Conceptualizing implies being able to have an adaptive behavior sustained by the capacity of apprehending the nature of what one is doing while one is able to apprehend the operational aspects of the actions.

The discovery of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature allowed finding the roots of evolution, involution and mutation.

This intelligence drives the purpose of the living beings in nature based on an active principle that sustains growth, change and mutation, and an energy conservation principle that saves energy while it sustains the purpose. This principle compensates the entropy produced by the active function.

The objective of any thinking process is to be able to emulate  the models that underlie the tangible aspects of the world that can be accessed through sensory experiences. The objective of conceptual thinking is to emulate the nature that underlies specific aspects of reality in order to influence the environment.

Functional concepts are cross-cultural and timeless. They remain unchanged as long as a function exists.

Having the concepts of what one is doing allows being extremely effective and flexible. An individual can adopt new operational technologies without needing to change because the concept remains the same.

Conceptualization enhances the human condition.

The History of Conceptualization

The term Concept in Western philosophy can be found in the works of Plato and Aristotle. Their approach drove to the definition of concepts as describing the essence of things defined as a universal realm.

Unicist ConceptualizationErnst Cassirer (Substanzbegriff und Funktionsbegriff) included the definition that concepts not only define the essence of things but also their shape.

Descartes can be considered as the initiator of a new stage by defining the word “idea” as homologous to concept. But empiricism, with Locke and Hume gave to the terms “idea” and “concept” only a psychological meaning.

Immanuel Kant gave the term “concept” a functional meaning, considering it as the framework of any possible action.

Peter Belohlavek went further. He developed a complexity science approach to deal with complex adaptive systems that integrated philosophy, science and action in a unified field: reality.

He approached what he called extrinsic concepts, which are the ones deposited by humans on the elements of their external reality. He defined that such concepts have a functional structure that emulates the ontogenetic intelligence of nature.

He discovered that such concepts have these three elements:

  1. A purpose that is homologous to the purpose in nature.
  2. An active function that is homologous to the active principle in nature.
  3. An energy conservation function that is homologous to the energy conservation principle in nature.

The knowledge of the structure of concepts makes their access becomes easier and allows using them as the “stem cells” of knowledge and actions.

He also discovered the complementation and supplementation laws that are implicit within each conceptual structure and the concept of anti-concepts that is homologous to the concept of anti-matter.

With the unicist approach, Peter Belohlavek integrated the Western approach and the Eastern approach but focused on a different purpose, which is the adaptation to the environment.  This adaptive process is achieved by generating value and profiting from its counterpart in order to foster a sustainable evolution.

The Unicist Paradigm Shift in Sciences applied to Businesses

Integrating Observable Facts with the Nature of Things

The unicist paradigm shift in sciences drove from an empirical approach to a pragmatic, structuralist and functionalist approach to deal with complex environments, integrating observable facts with the “nature of things”. It made businesses reasonable, understandable and predictable. It allowed managing the world of possibilities going beyond probabilities.

Unicist Business Objects changed Business Management

The design of business processes, before the unicist approach was developed, was based on operational research tools that did not include the fundamentals of processes. Therefore they were extremely human attitude dependant.

The unicist approach to business processes introduced fundamental analysis to define the nature of processes and the use of objects emulating the organization of nature. Object Driven Organization established a new starting point in business process design.

“Unicist Business Objects are adaptive systems that are designed to produce a predefined result in a process. By definition they deal with the adaptive aspects of businesses. They are unnecessary in administrative systems.

Not everyone can design an object, but everyone that recognizes its functionality within a process can use it.

The autopilot of an airplane can be activated without knowing how it was built but it is necessary to know how it works and the limits of its functionality.

There are five business objects which are: the drivers, the entropy inhibitors, the inhibitors, the catalysts and the gravitational objects.

The first three ones belong to the process of a system while the catalysts are part of the restricted context and the gravitational objects belong to the wide context of a system.

Objects can be designed integrating these three functions as part of their functionality or they can exist as three different objects to provide the driving, inhibiting and entropy inhibiting functions in a process.

Catalysts and gravitational objects are not part of the system. If one integrates them into the system, these objects do not work as such and destroy the system’s functionality.

The use of business objects requires individuals who understand the business processes in order to use the objects and replace them when their functionality has been exceeded.”

Thinking Green: Unicist Object Driven Management

The application of the Unicist Standard in Management saves more than 30% of the energy consumed by an organization.

The Unicist Standard in Management is based on integrating objects in the whole process which includes Peopleware, Software and Hardware. Managing by objects increases notoriously the objectivity and thus the results that need to be achieved. It integrates both the subjective and objective aspects of businesses in an object driven process to ensure results.

The Unicist Object Driven Management approach implies understanding the nature of the business you are working with to select the hardware and software according to the people you have. It puts the Object driven organization into practice using both a minimum strategy, that ensures the survival and a maximal strategy, to go beyond the present boundaries to grow.

Unicist Management implies dealing with Adaptive Systems

Management implies integrating hardware, software and peopleware. This requires using an integrative logic to make it possible; this is what the Unicist Logic is about.

The Unicist Logic establishes the formal rules to integrate the above mentioned elements in adaptive systems to ensure the achievement of results.

Maurice Blondel announced a century ago that some day a logical structure would be developed capable of integrating the preexisting logical models. That is the case of the Unicist Logic.

Unicist Standard Language in Business Management

Energy saving in management requires dealing with the nature of a business. The Unicist Standard is needed to deal with the nature of management. It allows using object driven management to optimize the business processes.

The Unicist Standard Language is necessary to deal with the Unicist Standard.

“Dealing with Human Adaptive Systems necessarily is driven by complexity. Adaptive systems are complex in themselves but dealing with human adaptive systems adds a new complex component which is the ambiguity implicit in human behavior.

The existence of conscious and non-conscious aspects of human behavior produces naturally the existence of an ambiguous environment.

The purpose of adaptive system management is to influence human adaptive systems using the object driven technologies included in the Unicist Standard.

The development of the Unicist Standard Language was necessary to provide a context in order to understand, communicate and influence the management of human adaptive systems.”
