The Unicist Root Cause System

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. Concepts and fundamentals define the DNA of business functions. 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.

Application Fields

Unicist Conceptual Design Groups

The implementation of root cause management works with:

Business Intelligence: This module allows defining the information that is necessary to build competitive intelligence, critical intelligence and structural intelligence.

Business Strategy: This module allows finding the root causes that influence the development of businesses to design growth strategies.

Business Processes: This module allows managing the root causes of business processes to define them or solve existing problems.

These implementation groups are led by people who manage the unicist strategic approach to business problems integrating fundamentals with technical aspects. The members of the groups manage the unicist methodology for complex problem solving.

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.
