The Four Pillars of the Unicist Approach

Press Committee

NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute was the pioneer in complexity science research and became the major research organization in the world in the field of human adaptive systems. More than 4,200 unicist ontological researches were developed since 1976 until December 2011 in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution. They included the development of the unicist ontogenetic maps (DNA) of institutions: https://www.unicist.org/conceptual-thinking/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/turi.pdf


Reorganization of Butterfly-Companies

Finally it was decided to enter the business of restructuring small and mid-size businesses that suffer the syndrome of being butterfly-businesses.

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

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.

Their 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.

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

The condition to restructure these businesses is that during the transition period an interim management is installed. This interim management needs to be hired by the company owners. The Unicist Confederation needs to have the veto for the hiring of the management.

This is an extremely valuable business focused basically on Family Businesses.

We invite you to be our guest at the Unicist Library to access the book “Butterfly Companies and their cure”:  http://www.unicist.com

Honoring Steve Jobs for having opened a window

Steve Jobs passed away yesterday leaving behind a deed that is, and will be, multiplying worldwide.

He will probably be remembered as the co-founder of Apple which, from our standpoint, is unfair.

He is the person who introduced the user in the organization, giving true meaning to work. His search for transcendence, in the wide and not egotistic sense, allowed him to understand the needs of the community. He worked and organized the work to cover such needs.

Courage was, without doubt, his guide in everyday work. He had to face “Goliaths” being a “David” and also had to overcome the “yes but” and “no” that innovators have to deal with. The prices he had to pay were extremely high.

Apple was the vehicle for his innovations. It has to be considered that innovators without users have no added value. His creation allowed the integration of human beings with electronic devices.

He is the true creator of the “phenotype” of computers and adjacent devices, which are their interfaces. The “window” he opened will never close.

I would like to say “good bye” with two simple words:

Thank you…
