The Unicist Standard for Business Upgrades


Upgrades are such when businesses are able to add more value to their markets.

To do so a company needs to change the weaknesses that are implicit in the strengths of its business.

But when the implicit weaknesses are “repaired”, the complementary strengths lose their support. Where there is a light there is a shadow. Therefore, where there is a strength there is an implicit weakness.

Changes of implicit weaknesses produce commotions in businesses, having three possible consequences:

1)      The upgrade of the business

2)      The mutation of the business

3)      The elimination of the change

Upgrades require changing the operational procedures of a company in order to increase the value added to the market. The unicist standard implies the use of business objects within the organizational processes.

Business objects need to add specific values to the processes. That is why a conceptual design of the entire business process is needed to introduce business objects.

Evolving businesses are “democratic”. Democracy in business means that the decisions are objective, grounded and functional to the organization.

Transparency is a basic condition for business upgrades. But transparency is only possible if the fundamentals of the business are being managed.

Business stagnations or downgrades

In stagnated or involving businesses the organization is driven by its strengths considering the implicit weaknesses as a limit for their actions.

This is functional to businesses working in markets that are stagnated. But a business that works within the limits of its weaknesses enters automatically in an involution cycle if markets evolve.

Involving businesses are used to compensating their weaknesses with a dominant role. Stagnated businesses fight against involution exerting power to convince the market and the internal organization that they are following or leading a successful trend.
