Unicist Service Improvement Platform

The Unicist System

The Unicist Service Improvement Platform is a knowledge system, based on the fundamentals of business processes, that uses the unicist continuous improvement technology to manage object driven improvement processes. Unicist Business Strategy is an extremely simple approach that manages the fundamentals of business processes and emulates the organization of nature. The unicist continuous improvement technology uses “objects” to structure work processes and establishes the operating rules that are functional to each business. The building of objects, management of customer-driven rules, personal motivation and institutionalization are the “hard” elements of the continuous improvement technology.

The Framework: The Unicist Paradigm Shift in Business

The Unicist Paradigm Shift in Business

The discovery of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature, that drives the evolution of living beings, and the development of the Unicist Theory, created by Peter Belohlavek at The Unicist Research Institute, allowed defining the epistemological structure of complexity sciences. This approach provided a solution to deal with adaptive systems and environments, including businesses. This paradigm shift was introduced in business to develop strategies, architectures and processes that emulate the intelligence and organization of nature.

The Basics Behind Unicist Strategy and Root Cause Management

Emulation of Reality

• The discovery of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature allowed discovering the concepts that underlie natural and artificial adaptive entities and explain their evolution. It provided the basics for secure strategy building and for the management of the root causes of things.

• The discovery of the triadic functionality of human conscious intelligence allowed emulating nature to develop strategies to influence the environment. It provided the basics to understand and influence individual actions.

• The discovery of the triadic functionality of collective intelligence allowed understanding the evolution of groups, institutions and societies. It provided the basics to understand and influence social behavior.

These basics sustain the emulation of the concepts and fundamentals of an adaptive environment that allow managing its root causes and the development of unicist strategies to ensure the generation of results.

Unicist Contingency Room

Unicist Contingency Room

Unicist Contingency Rooms are organizational units that transform urgent problems into structural solutions. When they begin their teamwork, the leadership includes the participation of a coordinator, who assumes the responsibility for doing what is needed to find the solutions for the problem that needs to be solved, an ombudsman to represent the needs of the client and a fallacy-shooter who ensures that the group manages valid knowledge.

Unicist Reliability System

Unicist Reliability System

Unicist Reliability Systems are the entropy inhibitor of any servicing work process. Reliability deals with the efficacy of the participants of work processes. It includes the existence of a quality assurance system, a reward system and a people management system. This system establishes work agreements that make work processes predictable. Reliability is basic for any relationship and therefore necessary for any development. The commitment with the agreements ensures teamwork.

Unicist Performance Management System

Unicist Performance Management

The Unicist Performance Management is the trigger of actions. It is the sensory system that provides the energy conservation of businesses ensuring that the objectives can be achieved. It works with the systemic functions of a business and with the adaptive functions. The systemic functions are monitored using KPIs, which are based on the technical-analytical knowledge of the activity. The adaptive functions need to be monitored with the Unicist Scorecard, which is based on fundamental analysis.

Unicist Knowledge Building System

Unicist Knowledge System

The unicist knowledge building system has been developed to build business objects libraries, factory-objects pools and knowledge objects banks to be used as an input to develop and improve business processes. The main applications of this system deal with the development of: business objects and factory objects libraries, knowledge objects libraries, knowledge acquisition systems, knowledge management systems and knowledge groups, among others.

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.

Implementation & Pilot Tests

Unicist Destructive Testing

The implementation process of unicist technologies is developed using unicist concepts and fundamentals to define the root causes of the problems that are being solved and the root drivers of the solutions. Pilot tests are developed as destructive and non-destructive tests that drive the reflection processes to find the root causes of problems. The R&D groups, integrated with members of the clients, use a prototyper provided by The Unicist Research Institute. If needed, the development of the solution can be outsourced to a Partner of the Unicist Confederation.

Unicist Teaching Hospital in Business

Unicist Teaching Hospital in Business

The Unicist Reflection Driven Learning System is an educational platform to give access to the unicist technologies that are needed to manage the root causes of businesses. The participants of these programs are managers, leaders and high potentials of an organization that learn to manage the solution building processes that are developed with other members of the organization. A “Teaching Hospital” is based on an action-reflection-action process to transform problems into structural solutions. The programs of the system are based on virtual collaboration to simplify and optimize the time invested by the participants.

Unicist Business Coaching

The unicist coaching process has been designed to support the development of strategies and to manage the adaptive aspects of businesses. The unicist coaches provide the underlying concepts and fundamentals that, integrated with the technical and operational knowledge, allow managers to emulate business processes, manage the root causes of problems and develop solutions validated through pilot tests. Unicist coaching is the new stage of coaching based on the integration of the fundamentals of business functions.

Technologies as a Service: Generating Positive Cash Flow

The root cause management technology can be provided as a service to avoid needing an initial investment. As a service, it allows generating a positive cash flow based on the income generated by the solutions that are developed. The solutions are developed by the clients or by Think Tanks, Knowledge Groups or Avant Garde Groups that are integrated with members of the clients.

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.
