Transforming urgent problems into structural solutions

Product Image

The Unicist Root Cause Management System is an application of the Unicist Business Strategy that allows managing adaptive environments and systems by emulating the intelligence of nature. This approach deals with the concepts that underlie business functions and processes to develop maximal strategies to develop growth and minimum strategies to ensure the functionality of the processes. This approach allows transforming business problems into structural solutions.

The Unicist System 2.0

The Unicist System

The Unicist System 2.0 is a Knowledge System that was developed to build structural solutions that generate additional value or save costs. Therefore, the use of the system generates a significant positive cash-flow.

The system is based on unicist concepts and fundamentals that define the root causes of problems and are the root drivers of solutions. They allow defining what is possible to be achieved and developing the maximal and minimum strategic actions and business objects to make it happen. This system is installed as a prototyper that is transformed into an ad-hoc system based on the applications to the specific business.

This Knowledge System includes the Unicist Root Cause Library that gives access to the knowledge objects that are necessary to build business solutions. This system can be provided as a service.

The First Root Cause Approach

Unicist Fishbone (Ishikawa)

Root cause finding is a natural process in hard technologies but the first application to businesses was developed by Dr. Ishikawa who approached empirically and intuitively the development of an approach to the root causes of quality in handcrafted industrial processes. You will find that Ishikawa’s Fishbone approach defines the structure of the fundamentals of the concepts that define the quality of these processes.

The Solution of Business Growth Problems

Business Growth Strategy

This module allows finding the root causes that influence the development of businesses to design growth strategies. On the one hand, this approach is based on the driving fundamentals that make growth possible and the development of maximal strategies to grow and minimum strategies to ensure survival. On the other hand, it defines the critical mass to ensure growth driven by the credibility, aesthetics and influence of the business.

The unicist standard of the fundamentals, necessary to achieve results, is provided by us.

The Solution of Business Process Problems

Business and IT Architecture

This module allows managing the root causes of business processes to define them or solve existing problems. It is based on the fundamentals of the client centered management model that define the client orientation, the added value assurance and the results assurance. On the other hand, it is based on a personalized organization model to ensure quality based on the integration of efficacy and efficiency.

The unicist standard of the fundamentals, necessary to achieve results, is provided by us.

The Solution of Market Growth Problems

Product Image

This module allows managing the root causes of buying processes to increase the speed of market expansion or to solve existing problems. It is based on the fundamentals that drive the expansion of markets defined by the influential market propositions, the aesthetics of their benefit and their credibility. On the other hand, it deals with the first-choice positioning by managing the subjective value, the differentiation and the need satisfaction of the value propositions.

The unicist standard of the fundamentals, necessary to achieve results, is provided by us.

Pilot Test driven Reflection

Types of Foundations

Destructive and non-destructive tests drive the reflection processes to find root causes. The research of root causes requires knowing why things happen. While the traditional 5 Whys applied in the field of hard technologies is based on univocal cause-effect relationships and is dysfunctional in adaptive environments, the Unicist 5 Why Method searches for analogical, empirical, logical, causal and conceptual answers to this question in adaptive environments. The unicist approach allows defining the foundations of business processes, which makes them reasonable, understandable and predictable. This method is complemented with the “Q” method that allows managing conflictive objectives.

Unicist Root Cause Library

Unicist Root-Cause Library

The information of the structure of the concepts included in this library allows managing the root causes of business functions. The root cause library is based on more than 5,000 researches developed at The Unicist Research Institute. It provides the knowledge objects, concepts and fundamentals to build business solutions including strategies, processes, roles and business objects.

Unicist Root Cause Coaching

Unicist Coaching

The implementation of the system is sustained by a root cause coaching process for the leaders of the teams that develop the solutions. The search for root causes is developed in teams integrated by the members of the organizations that are responsible for the business processes. There is no need for the members to manage the unicist approach. They only need to manage their expertise.

Participate in a Unicist Micro-Clinic or Webinar

Unicist Root Cause Management

We invite you to participate in a micro-clinic or webinar to learn about how the system works. It will provide you an access to the unicist approach to root causes in business. The unicist approach to root cause management is based on the discovery that concepts drive human actions and define the root causes of problems, which allows developing structural business solutions. They allow defining what is possible to be achieved and building the necessary solutions and business objects to make it happen.

About The Unicist Research Institute

The Unicist Research Institute (TURI) is, since 1976, a private global decentralized research center specialized in complexity sciences that is focused on the research of the evolution of natural and artificial adaptive systems. It has an academic arm, the Unicist Corporate University, and a business arm, the Unicist Confederation.

It was the pioneer in complexity science research and became a global decentralized leading research organization in the field of human adaptive systems. The unicist pragmatism, the structuralism based on unicist ontologies and the functionalism driven by concepts were developed at TURI to research the field of complex adaptive systems. More than 5,000 unicist ontological researches were developed since 1976 in the field of basic sciences, life sciences and individual, institutional and social evolution.

The main countries that originated these researches were: US, DE, UK, FR, JP, SE, CA, CH, IN, BR, AR, CAT, RU, CN, AU. TURI's Future Research Laboratory has completed the research of 70 countries' archetypes.
