Unicist Business Architecture


Logical Management Tools: Unicist Change Management

There is nothing more difficult than the development of a change management strategy. It requires to be able to “read” the future, understand what would naturally happen, and then establish a strategy to influence the change that would happen naturally in order to:

Unicist Change Management1) Introduce an external element

2) Accelerate it

3) Avoid miscarriages

4) Minimize the cost of  changes

5) Maximize the benefit of change

Every change of habits implies the integration of a change of ethics and a change of the customs that are natural in the context that is being changed. Changes have to be managed considering their size:

Big Changes

They are the changes that drive towards a higher level of structured action, responsibility or risk. Big changes require drivers and catalysts to be implemented. Big changes can be divided into structured medium changes.

Medium Changes

They are those changes that seek for a more structured activity with lower risks. Medium changes cannot be divided into small changes.

Small Changes

They are changes that require no structural modifications.

Avant Garde Groups – “A” Groups –

Change agents are usually left behind after a change was successful. Avant Garde Groups were created to design and implement organizational changes. Thus the role of a Change Agent becomes virtual and is not affected after the changes are implemented. Change managers manage the change while “A” Groups do the changes.

Client Centered Management: the model to grow using Maximal Strategies

Client Centered Management is a model that catalyzes market expansion processes. It is part of the unicist natural organization model. The natural organization is a meta-model in itself that integrates the organization that is needed for the business and the market, the client orientation and the personalization of the work processes.

Client Centered ManagementClient Centered Management needs to be established to drive actions towards the end client and then the personal organization needs to be used in order to ensure the fulfillment of the organizational roles.

The functionality of the Client Centered Management model is driven and catalyzed by the use of business objects that save energy and make processes simpler and more effective.

You can access the unicist logical approach to businesses at:

Thus CCM is the natural model for business expansion. It has to be considered that it requires business objects driven processes and a role model that allows managing responsibilities.

CCM uses Object Driven Organization

Nature, as a paradigmatic complex adaptive system, is organized by objects. The unicist organizational approach is based on emulating nature to manage businesses as adaptive systems.

The unicist object driven organization is the natural way to organize based on the knowledge of the ontogenetic maps of a business and its functions. It implies integrating business objects in the business processes that allow managing the adaptive aspects of businesses accelerating processes while saving energy.

Object driven marketing, object driven strategy, object driven management, object driven continuous improvement, object driven negotiation and object driven leadership are paradigmatic examples of the object driven organization.

This worked well when the influence of the actions allowed dominating the environment and failed when this was not the case.

CCM is a management model that was developed to establish the rules for an optimum use of the company’s energy so as to satisfy its internal and external clients and catalyze business expansion. When talking about the external client in the company we necessarily refer to the customer and the shareholder. CCM is a meta-model to provide result-assurance, client orientation and secure added value to an organization. It is the natural model to expand businesses.

The Unicist Fishbone Method to Find Root Causes

The Unicist Fishbone Method (UFM) is based on the original Fishbone developed by Kaoru Ishikawa. Conceptually, what Ishikawa developed was a method to manage the fundamentals of industrial processes.

Unicist Fishbone

The Ishikawa method was developed to allow people, who participated in the work processes, to develop their improvements.

Both the original Ishikawa method and the unicist fishbone method require that people have real experience in the field that is being analyzed.

The UFM was developed using the fundamentals of the operational concept of a business function and developing a fishbone approach in order to find the root causes that drive the functionality.

For example, we can consider the fundamentals of a project design process to find the root causes of the problems that allow improving such process.

Unicist FishboneThe fundamentals to be considered are: the value generation architecture, the conceptual design of the system, the conceptual design of the objects included in the system, the objects architecture, the quality assurance and the risk management.

These fundamentals need to be dimensioned in measurable entities. This implies that, although fundamentals work as fuzzy sets, their functional level needs to be dimensioned in order to define their influence on the functionality of a process.

Then they are organized as a fishbone diagram to allow the participants of a group to define the triggering and the root causes that need to be considered to improve processes.

The Unicist Fishbone Method includes the methodology to be used to find the root causes of the problems that allow improving processes.

Discovery of the Unicist Ontology of Brand/Image Building

The discovery of the Unicist Ontology of Brand Building defined the nature of the functionality of the building of a Critical Mass, a Promise and a Prove of Credibility in the evolution of brands.

Unicist Brand BuildingA “Brand” was defined as the materialization of the image of a living being or an unanimated entity. The brand is installed in mind as an iconic symbol that can be a name, term, design, symbol, or any other feature that identifies the entity.

Brands work when they are installed in the long term memory of an individual which produces an automated recall of attributes when the iconic symbol of the brand is perceived.

Brands are paradigmatic ambiguous semiotic signs which have two integrated meanings that need to be within their attributes. Iconic symbols are the guiding signs that drive towards the perception of the attributes of a brand.

On the one hand, a brand implies a promise of something that is going to happen, and on the other hand, it includes a “prove of credibility” that makes the promise believable.

The brand identifies the role of an entity. That is why brands are necessarily functional and their functionality is limited to the role of the entity.

The purpose of a brand is to generate a critical mass to influence people in order to install a preconceived perception in their memory. That is why brands work as catalysts or inhibitors of actions.

The Introduction to avoid Building a Butterfly Company

Butterfly companies are unstable organizations that are unable to work as institutions. They might be the consequence of an unstable market or the need of the owners to avoid the separation between them and the company.

When they are based on unstable markets there might be two different situations:

1)      It is the natural consequence of the market, for example unique projects.

2)      It is the consequence of the market instability of a country or region.

In the first case there is no butterfly company, just a transitory business that doesn’t pretend to work as an institution.

In the second case there is a butterfly company that tends to disappear when the conjuncture changes. The permanent threat of the market hinders the separation of the company from its owner so the company cannot evolve but based on the owner’s actions.

Archetypical butterfly companies are those working in stable markets but not separated from their owners.

Their purpose is to obtain profit at any price having the necessary conjunctural justifications to obtain it and exerting the necessary power to ensure it.

Cooperation Building is a Key Driver for Value Generation

Cooperation is defined as the building of a common space of complementation in which the expansion of the boundaries of the participants becomes possible, while the individual limits of the members are respected.

The driver of cooperation building is the need to generate additional value. This requires an extreme focus on the results that need to be produced, using an integrative logic to integrate the needs of the participants and the external goals to be achieved.

Therefore, the generation of additional added value is part of the nature of cooperative environments.

Cooperation is based on human gregarious instinct and is natural between groups of people who have decided to expand their boundaries.

It is easily observable in the cooperation of countries and organizations of any kind. It adopts many shapes: collaboration, alliances, federations, confederations, etc.

Cooperation is not feasible in extreme individualistic or involving environments. In these environments competitiveness becomes extreme and cooperation is seen as a weakness.

This is a paradox that condemns these types of environments to live in a stagnated context with endless conflicts and/or conflict avoidance actions.

Unicist Adaptive System Design in Businesses

The Unicist Standard for adaptive systems design implies an upgrade in work organization. It establishes the basic conditions to design work, organizational and institutional processes.

When the work is individual the system might be in the mind of the worker. This is the case of artisans, artists, etc. But when the work is developed with the participation of others, the systems are part of the organizational structure of the group.

The Unicist Standard defines that the purpose of an organization is to manage the hardware, software and peopleware involved in the working processes. That is what we have named “Object Driven Management”.

To achieve this purpose it is necessary to put it into action through an object driven organization that allows emulating the organization of nature but with the technology that is available.

To ensure the management process organizations need to have an immune system to ensure that the object driven organization can fulfill its purpose.

Why use the Unicist Double Dialectical Logic?

The unicist double dialectical logic uses the dualistic operation of neurons to build a mental emulation of the structure of nature that allows dealing with the adaptive aspects of reality, managing the integration of their double dialectical behavior. Unicist thinking is the name given to the process that allows building the double dialectical logic.

Unicist thinking allows emulating in mind the structure of adaptive aspects of reality in order to manage them. It provides the necessary operating system to manage adaptive systems to expand the boundaries of businesses and infer future scenarios in order to adapt to them.

It is necessary to diagnose, build strategies and design business architectures. It provides the structure to understand the fundamentals of businesses and integrate the fundamental knowledge with the technical analytical knowledge to make decisions.

The unicist reflection process: action-reflection-action is the technology to be used to transform dualistic logical approaches into unicist double dialectical approaches in order to define complex adaptive systems. This technology allows starting with the use of disjunctions “OR” and ending with the use of conjunctions “AND”.

It is an upgrade that is up to you…

Virtual Negotiations: The Unicist Object Driven Approach

Virtual communication is extremely powerful to develop negotiations if the taxonomy, stages and processes are designed based on the characteristics of the medium.

Marshall McLuhan defined that “The medium is the message”, which can be demonstrated when developing virtual negotiations.

Virtual negotiations structurally differ from personal negotiations because they lose part of the energy provided by the “person to person” processes. Functionality needs to prevail in each stage of a virtual negotiation process.

In virtual negotiations it is necessary to divide the stages into physical divisions. Meaning that each stage needs to be closed, confirmed and matured before starting the next stage. The use of unicist business objects becomes necessary.

This implies a step by step process which demands successive meetings. These meetings are much shorter than personal meetings but need to be preceded and followed by the use of objects and allow preparing and confirming the functionality of what is being agreed upon.

This implies preparing the negotiation using gravitational objects and catalysts. During the meeting it is necessary to use drivers to empower the negotiation and then, after the negotiation, the use of inhibitors and entropy inhibitors becomes necessary.

In the real world there are few people who really can negotiate. Most of the people can buy, sell or make compromises. Virtual negotiation is only possible if both parts have the personal ability to negotiate which is given by their capacity to manage complementation conflicts, authority conflicts and involution conflicts.

The use of virtual media opens the global world to negotiations and saves an enormous amount of energy and costs. It requires respecting the archetypes of the different cultures and negotiate based on the nature of the objectives that need to be achieved.

It is a new stage in business that requires adopting a new technology.

Japanese Park: The Starting Point of the Unicist Approach

The Japanese Park is a technology to define the starting point of any personal or  organizational process. The name Japanese Park has been adopted honoring the Japanese ancient tradition that was used to define how to build a park.

The basic information that is needed to move from one place to another is the coordinates of the destiny and of the starting point. The knowledge of this information allows defining if the “journey” is possible.

The unicist approach to business defines the objective to be achieved and the starting point in an independent way before matching them to diagnose if the business process is possible.

The Japanese Park technology is used to define the starting point of a new work process.

The design of a new work process, using the unicist approach, implies establishing the basic context to make the work process happen spontaneously.

It consists in launching the work process without defining how to do it and letting people do the work in their natural way.

What is being evaluated in a Japanese Park is:

  1. How people organize their activity?
  2. What is the added value they spontaneously provide and to whom?
  3. How people do their work?

A sound conceptual knowledge of the business and the knowledge of its ontogenetic map are necessary to interpret the output of a Japanese Park to begin with the design of the business processes.
