Unicist Standard


The Unicist Logical Approach to Relationship Building

The unicist approach to relationship management is based on building complementary relations that have to be functional to the nature of the type of relationship. It requires integrating the functional aspects and the personal aspects that allow establishing stable relationships.

Double Dialectical Logic of Relationship Building

The double-dialectical approach to relationship-building allows integrating the functional aspects, which make relationships evolve, with the personal aspects that allow sustaining their stability.

The dualistic approach to relationship-building is based on the existence of conflictive relationships between the functional interests and the personal rapport. Dualistic approaches do not allow influencing the evolution of relationships.

The dualistic relationship management tends to build relationships based on functional needs or on the use of emotional manipulation.

Natural Organization: the use of Unicist Business Objects

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 who 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 unicist 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.

The Nature of the Negotiation Context

Negotiations are the actions where the diplomatic power is transformed into concrete value. A negotiation is a process where synergy between parts is achieved finding the complementation and the space where non-conflictive relations are possible.

The purpose of the negotiation context is to produce an evolution conflict that allows building a complementation.

The active function to produce this evolution conflict is the existence of an authority conflict that is necessary to define the “value” of the parts involved in a negotiation.

After the authoritative role of the parts has been accepted an involution conflict begins. In this involution conflict each part tries to prevail over the other one and finally, the evolution conflict solving is possible after the need to “degrade” the opponent has finished and both parts accept their mutual values.

Unicist Business Architecture for Stable Growth

Unicist business architecture is not only a functional architecture, but a structural functionalist approach to businesses.

This is a structural approach because it deals with businesses considered as adaptive systems, which are integrated by interdependent elements that are approached based on their ontological structure.

It is functional because it follows the same ontology of functionality as does functional architecture.

The purpose of unicist business architecture is to define a business model. It implies seeking for an organization by results which is integrated by a market orientation, a business orientation and an orientation towards the use value of products. The purpose has to ensure the utility of the architecture.

The unified field of the business has to be apprehended in order to define the complementation and supplementation between the elements that integrate it. The organization by results needs to be sustained by a strategy that includes both the minimum and the maximal strategies.

The active function, which provides the aesthetics of the structure, is defined by the hyperrealism of the model, which includes the emulation of reality as a business, the functional reality of the elements of the organization and the essential reality of the unified field.

This allows developing a simple manageable model that defines the architecture of the business at a structural level.

Unicist object driven negotiations to expand businesses

Unicist negotiation describes the nature of expansive negotiations. Expansive negotiations are those that generate additional vital space for the parts involved. Expansive negotiations are those that seek for the expansion of the vital space of the parts included. Defensive negotiations are triggered by a threat that endangers the vital space of the parts included.

Negotiation ContextNegotiations are the actions where the diplomatic power is transformed into concrete value. A negotiation is a process where synergy between parts is achieved finding the complementation and the space where non-conflictive relations are possible.

How to avoid building ephemeral Butterfly Companies

Butterfly Enterprises are businesses that have been built with the implicit “butterfly virus” which kills the business after a conjuncture ended.

Butterfly CompaniesTheir main observable characteristics are the lack of: business planning, ROI, image building and use of adaptive systems. They cannot behave as an adaptive system and depend on the efficacy of their owners.

The research on the nature of the Butterfly Company began in 2001. These companies were named Butterfly because they are extremely beautiful and ephemeral for their owners.

They are companies that disappear when the external conjuncture changes or the owners die.

The companies that die with their owners are family driven companies but not family businesses. They do not exist as independent entities and are part of the ego of their owners. They base their actions on the efficacy of their members and cannot deal with efficiency.

The purpose of “Butterfly Enterprises” is to profit from the market. The conjuncture provides the necessary justification for their actions to obtain profit and the power they exert is put into action by the need to transfer their costs and risks to others. Therefore they cannot develop maximal strategies to grow.

Their transformation into “institutions” demands the upgrade of their technology and the use of Business Objects to integrate efficiency, efficacy and their natural organization to ensure results.

Unicist Innovations in Businesses

The innovation of the understanding of the difference between enterprising and “entrepreneurial attitude” based on their unicist ontological structure allowed building business objects to manage these different approaches in an adequate way.

The unicist technology defines the adaptive aspects of businesses using ontogenetic maps and introduces objects to save energy and improve the results of business processes. The following description will give the basics of the innovation.

The activities of the Unicist Confederation are expanding based on the introduction of the unicist ontology and business objects driven technologies.

The Object Driven Organization of the adaptive aspects of businesses is the technology included in all the “solutions” for business optimization.

The Confederation itself also uses business objects for its growth. These objects ensure the critical mass of the solutions it provides to the market. Business solutions require the use of driving, catalyzing and gravitational business objects.

1) The business objects are the drivers of the activity providing the solutions that generate significant energy savings and optimization of results to their users.

2) The unicist approach, including diagnoses, strategies and architectures of the solutions is the catalyst of the Confederation’s proposals.

3) The emulation of nature in business is the gravitational object that sustains the activities of the Confederation.

This approach segments the market. Basically, it can be said that the object driven approach is necessary for business expansion and convenient for business administration.

Unicist metamodels – Design globally, operate locally

Business Fundamentals are cross-cultural which implies that they define the essential aspects of business that transcend frontiers.

The building of global design based on the fundamentals of a business to allow local adaptation according to the characteristics of a culture is the most effective way to manage businesses when their adaptive aspects are dominant.

When their administrative aspects prevail there is no need for local adaptation beyond respecting the characteristics of the culture.

“Nature is “the conceptual benchmark” for business management. On the one hand, nature is organized by objects (see Glossary). Trees, grass, animals, are “objects”. On the other hand, nature designs globally and operates locally.

Charles Darwin demonstrated the adaptation process of species that, having the same structural constitution, develop adaptive changes to live in a certain environment.

It is necessary to comprehend that the evolution of species has a materialistic origin.

What we are presenting in this book is the nature of business organization laying the fundamentals for global design.

The object-driven organizational design establishes the structure to develop adaptive behaviors in local environments.

The unicist natural organization has the same conceptual structure as nature:

1)      It is object-driven: this implies that organizations are integrated by interdependent objects and processes.

2)      It is market-oriented: market orientation is homologous to ecology.

3)      It ensures evolution: based on its implicit continuous improvement model.

4)      It sustains the evolution of species: each institution is a species in itself. Species grow because the energy they receive from the environment is higher than the cost of the energy they deliver.

5)      It is based on competition: only competition ensures the evolution of the ecosystem.

Understanding nature helps to understand the unicist approach to organizational design.”

Think Green: 30% of energy savings in your business

Energy saving in business implies respecting the nature of each business. Business inventions do not exist, only discoveries are good businesses.

Green thinking implies understanding that each business is a different animal in the forest and that its identification allows developing the business according to its nature saving a large amount of energy that uses to be wasted trying to change what cannot be changed.

The Unicist Standard provides the necessary Unicist Business Objects and unicist object driven technologies to transform the concept of “Green Thinking” into action.

Learning from Procter & Gamble using the Unicist Standard

The notorious capacity of Procter & Gamble is given by the way it manages the social insertion of innovations.

We recommend watching the following two short presentations of Procter & Gamble at:

Innovation is the basis for economic growth.  Essentially, countries, cultures, institutions, and individuals grow only in the fields where they are open to innovations.

The purpose of innovation is to overcome scarcity. That is why only people or cultures that have the will, find the way to overcome scarcity.  This is the cultural context that fosters innovation.

The driver of innovation is human creation. The word creation is used in the sense of recreation. Humans create based on the existing energy.

The maximal strategy of innovations drives towards the solution of a scarcity. Therefore innovative organizations have the perception that they add value to the environment. But this is only true if the minimum strategy is also fulfilled.

The minimum strategy implies inserting the innovations into the social capital of the environment. Social capital is defined by the strength of the bonds that integrate the members of a community.

Commercial innovations need to be only one step ahead of the habits of the environment. If they are more than one step ahead they fail, unless there is an extreme need and they are, implicitly, a “back to basics”.

In this field Procter & Gamble is a notorious benchmark.
