In-company Universities: Knowledge as a Business

Main Applications:

  • Development of process improvement
  • Development of knowledge acquisition groups
  • Development of business objects
  • Development of commercial leads and relationships

The Unicist In-company Universities are organized as business units to develop structural solutions using the unicist approach and the unicist methods. The activities of these Universities might include the development of structural solutions for the companies, their clients, providers, distributors or associates.

They are based on the use of the unicist conceptual design methodology and the unicist object driven technologies. These technologies are transferred as a service (TaaS).

They work as Teaching Hospitals in Businesses and are organized by specialized Business Residencies.

The development of the systemic solutions and their implementation are made by “avant garde” groups integrated by the participants of the universities. Complex solutions are managed by Unicist Think Tanks. The Corporate Universities have a positive cash-flow due to the solutions developed.

The Unicist Strategy

The Unicist Strategy is based on the emulation of nature that became possible due to the unicist paradigm shift in sciences. This approach is sustained by three pillars:

1) Unicist Strategy: that emulates nature by developing maximal strategies to grow and minimum strategies to ensure survival.

2) Unicist Tactics: that develops maximal strategy driven actions and minimum strategy driven actions to ensure results.

3) Unicist Reflection: that ensures the results of strategies and actions based on a pilot test driven reflection process.

Unicist Teaching Hospital in Business Manage Real Problems

Unicist Approach to Business Request Information

Corporate Universities are organized by specialized Unicist Business Residencies that are analogous to Medical Residencies in Teaching Hospitals; they work on the real problems participants need to solve. Programs give access to professionals, pertaining to these organizations, to the unicist logical tools and object driven technologies to diagnose, project scenarios, build strategies, design business processes and solve business problems.

The Organization of the Teaching Hospitals

The unicist conceptual approach to education is focused on learning while individuals solve real complex problems that require having apprehended their conceptual structure. This approach includes the use of the unicist logical tools and the unicist objects that have been developed at The Unicist Research Institute.

The residencies are coordinated by a Chief Resident, an Ombudsman and a Fallacy Shooter. This roles are generically named counselors.

The counselors who coordinate the activities of the "teaching hospitals" are members of the organization in which the "in-company university" is installed. The quality assurance of the use of the technology is provided by the Unicist Corporate University. If necessary, there is a possibility of outsourcing some of the counseling activities.

The learning of this approach requires an ACTION-REFLECTION-ACTION process driven by Pilot Tests in which the apprehension of business concepts occurs while actual results are being produced.

The Use of Learning Objects

The Unicist Corporate Universities organize a functional learning environment that exists based on the need of a specific knowledge to do something. It uses a learning objects driven educational approach to superior education.

The purpose of a learning object is to install an adaptive knowledge object in the mind of the learner. This implies that the learning objects drive the accommodation process to accept new aspects that were not managed before and integrate these new aspects in mind through an assimilation process, which requires storing this integration in the long-term memory of individuals.

The Working Platform of the University

The Unicist Corporate University provides a platform that works as a teaching hospital in the field of business. Participants use the unicist logical approach, conceptual tools and business objects to solve problems in a company. The Corporate University is installed as a business unit and is financed by the results it produces.

This platform includes virtual live learning programs, conceptual tools, a counseling system and a conceptual knowledge library. The "teaching hospitals" have been designed for managers and high potential individuals who can deal with conceptual solutions for businesses.

There are two different approaches to develop solutions:

1) For systemic solutions

2) For complex solutions

1) Avant Garde Groups for Systemic Solutions

The Unicist Teaching Hospitals in business have been designed to provide conceptual knowledge objects and logical tools to improve adaptive business processes.

The improvement processes are managed by Avant Garde Groups (“A” Groups) that improve work processes and propose the operating rules functional to each business.

This technology was created to design process improvements and/or implement organizational changes. They need to manage changes without changing the concepts of the business. Their role is to propose and implement process improvements that increase productivity and save energy.

The unicist approach manages problems based on their nature. That is why unicist technologies are ontology based. Therefore, unicist diagnostics are far more secure and operational.

The Leadership of Avant Garde Groups

To ensure the success of an “A” Group its leadership has to fulfill the following objectives:

1) The Coordinator has to guide participants’ work and delivery. If participants have problems with their delivery the coordinator has to solve them somehow.

2) The Fallacy-shooter has to confirm the validity of the proposals. S/he has to ensure that the necessary knowledge to develop the work is available and also support her/his colleagues.

3) The Ombudsman has to ensure the achievement of the value adding solutions for the internal/external clients of the group.

2) Think Tanks for Complex Solutions

A Unicist Think Tank (UTT) is a group of people who develops innovative solutions to upgrade the functionality of a complex adaptive environment in a solution thinking environment.

The driver of a UTT is given by a need to upgrade the functionality of a complex adaptive environment. It might be a natural entity or a human complex adaptive system. The need drives the building of a Think Tank which requires:

  • At least one member who has the fundamental knowledge of the activity.
  • Two members who have a solid technical knowledge.
  • Several members with empirical knowledge of the activity.

Unicist Technologies and Process Maturity

Unicist Technologies have to be used according to the level of maturity of the business processes. The Unicist Institutional Maturity Model is compatible with the CMMI (Capability Maturity Model Integration).

The Unicist Research Institute has developed Business Objects that allow emulating the organization of nature minimizing the energy consumed to generate value.

Unicist Business Objects are encapsulated adaptive systems that produce predefined results that can be inserted in work processes to increase productivity and quality and to save energy.

Some of the companies that use business objects are: Airbus, Amazon, Apple, BBC, Boeing, Dassault Systemes, Dupont, Ericsson, Facebook, General Electric, Google, Hilton, Honda, Hyundai, LinkedIn, Lufthansa, Mapfre, Mayo Clinic, Michelin, Novartis, Open Text, P&G, Pfizer, SAP, Siemens, Tata Motors, Toyota, Unilever, Walmart, Walt Disney World and Youtube.

Unicist TAAS

The concept of technologies as a service was developed to make unicist business technologies accessible to all companies, because there is no need to invest in technologies since they are paid by the results they produce. Unicist business technologies have been developed to deal with the concepts of businesses emulating the organization of nature. These technologies are based on the management of the fundamentals of business, integrating this knowledge with the technical-analytical knowledge to upgrade and optimize business processes. The unicist technologies were developed to manage the adaptive aspects of businesses where it is necessary to manage the fundamentals to produce results.

Unicist Corporate University

The Unicist Corporate University is organized to provide the necessary education to manage the unicist technologies as a service and to manage their implementation.

Technologies as a service uses the outsourcing of services, where the new technologies are applied, as the way to introduce the innovation. This outsourcing simplifies the introduction of the technologies and accelerates the speed of implementation. Any new technology implies a change of processes that requires a change of roles that drives towards a change of habits. This is a process that requires time. The outsourcing process is what gives the organization the necessary time to manage the change of habits.

Virtual Collaboration

Unicist Virtual Collaboration defines the framework of the program. It implies that virtual communication tools are being used to sustain the real solution building processes and the development of the micro-clinics. It is based on the use of the triadic approach to the nature of business processes that is based on the unicist ontologies that are provided by the UCU. This approach simplifies the processes using destructive pilot tests that sustain on the one hand the learning processes and, on the other hand, ensure the functionality of the solutions. This technology was developed at TURI to deal with development of solutions in adaptive environments.

Visit the Unicist School

If you are interested in learning more, you can become a visitor of the Unicist School and download a consultation book on any of the main unicist technologies, that allows you to develop a pilot test of their application. The Unicist School, based on the unicist paradigm shift, promotes structural solutions to deal with the evolution of adaptive environments.

The Leadership of Unicist Think Tanks

The leaders of the Think Tanks are people who have the capacity to enter in unknown fields in order to discover their nature and also have the capacity to apprehend complex environments and transform them into systemic systems.

I) The Coordinator, who is responsible for guiding the group towards the objectives that have been defined.

II) The “Fallacy-Shooter”, who is responsible for assuring the quality of the foundations and justifications in the decision making processes.

III) The “Ombudsman”, who is responsible for monitoring the value generation of the R&D processes.

The Unicist Paradigm Shift in Superior Education

The unicist paradigm shift applied to education is based on the discovery of the unicist ontology of human learning processes and on the reflection driven education to learn to manage complex adaptive environments.

The unicist logical approach to business and the object driven organization that emulate the structure of nature are the paradigm shift introduced by Conceptual Management. This allows going beyond the empirical approaches to businesses making them reasonable, understandable and predictable.
