Unicist Standard Language


Are ontogenetic maps necessary to design business models?

Business growth requires dealing with businesses as adaptive systems in order to be able to extend their boundaries.

Example of ontogenetic map for negociation design

Ontogenetic maps are a conceptual GPS to generate solutions in the field of businesses considered as human adaptive systems.

Ontogenetic maps describe the ontological algorithm of a function or the whole system. They describe the steps that have to be followed to influence businesses.

Ontogenetic maps are timeless and cross-cultural but their applicative content varies based on the available technologies and the characteristics of the environments.

The use of ontogenetic maps and their implicit unicist ontological algorithms is the input for business architecture making the building of a solid structure possible.

Business growth requires managing the ontogenetic map of the specific business and the ontogenetic map of economic growth.

Homology of the DNA of living beings and Unicist Ontologies

Genetic Map

The unicist ontology defines the ontogenetic map of an institution and is essentially analogous to the DNA of a living being. They both define the nature of the being, have an implicit purpose and materialize the action and the energy conservation principles.

Being aware of the unicist ontological structure that underlies and rules the behavior and evolution of an institution it is possible to define the taxonomies and action plans to ensure the functionality of an organization respecting its nature.

The difference between the DNA of different species is minimal although the physical difference might be enormous.

The same characteristic is given at the unicist ontological structure of institutions. Subtle differences generate different species.

That is why the accuracy of diagnoses of the conceptual structure of an institution is determinant. It defines its species and the possibilities and probabilities of its evolution.

Ontogenetic Maps for the genetic engineering of institutions

The Ontogenetic Map of IT Architecture

The functionality of algorithms is to provide a logical structure to understand and influence reality in a secure way. Following ontological algorithms an individual is respecting the rules of ontogenesis.

Algorithms describe and explain the natural functionality of a reality and establish the relationships of the objects that are part of such reality based on the ontogenesis of the evolution process.

They provide the natural way to influence institutions.

Using unicist ontologies to influence institutions implies dealing with the genetic engineering of the institution.

Therefore, the use of unicist technologies in institutions is based on “change without changing”.

That means introducing changes that respect their nature and do not try to change their essential concepts.

Lectures of the Unicist Scientific Dissemination Program

The objective of this program is to disseminate worldwide the use of the unicist ontological approaches to manage adaptive systems.

The R&D of complex adaptive systems belongs to the field of complexity science which was and is the field of Peter Belohlavek’s research.

He was the discoverer of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature, of the unicist ontology of evolution, human ontointelligence and multiple applications in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution.

Peter Belohlavek will be in charge of these lectures to give worldwide access to the main applicative unicist ontology based and object driven solutions developed using this approach.

The presentations are live 10-minute mini-lectures (Wednesdays 2:00 pm New York time) for guests, which will then be available on Youtube on the channel of The Unicist Research Institute:

Unicist Business Platforms include the ontology of growth

The unicist business platforms are based on the ontological algorithm for business growth. This is what makes the platforms work as virtual business units.

Business Growth is implicit in the architecture of a business. The context for structural growth is defined when the architecture has been designed. But it has to be considered that structural growth is in the details of the architecture and between the lines of the work procedures.

The unicist ontology of economic growth was discovered in 1989 after 10 years of research and country scenario building. Since then, its application to business growth drove to multiple experiences until it could be confirmed in 2011. The Unicist Research Institute used this ontology to grow from a pioneer in 1976 to where it is now.

The unified field of business growth, in unicist standard language, includes:

  1. A context for growth, which is defined by the implicit vision of a company.
  2. The economic growth algorithm: driven by technology, value generation and institutionalization.
  3. Synchronicity: driven by opportunity, critical mass and added value.
  4. Timing: driven by synchronicity, acceleration of actions and speed of actions.
  5. Action: driven by value adding displacement, focused energy and work.

The algorithm for growth allows, on the one hand, diagnosing the possibilities of structural growth, defining its strategy and implementing the business processes to build it.

On the other hand, it defines the possibilities of conjunctual growth. Conjunctural growth implies actions that only drive to the growth of revenue that cannot be incompatible with the above described unified field of the growth algorithm.

The Nature of Universal Strategy

The nature of reality is described by the ontology that defines its functionality. Therefore ontologies are timeless and cross-cultural.

Strategy has its origin in military actions. Its etymology derives from “strategos”: the art of the general. Strategy has been applied to all uses where an influence needs to be exerted to achieve a goal.

A strategic approach is a must when dealing with complex adaptive systems like businesses.

The origin of the unicist ontology of Universal Strategy has been Sun Tzu, who has been the originator of a conceptual approach to strategy.

Invincibility depends on one’s self; the enemy’s vulnerability on him. – Sun Tzu, The Art of War. c.400-320 b.c.

The concept described by Sun Tzu allowed defining the hypothesis of the ontology of strategy, and its multiple applications allowed confirming it. The ontological approach makes strategies understandable, reasonable and provable.

If you are interested in managing the strategy of your activity we strongly recommend studying The Art of War. But you need to go beyond the operational meaning of his words and apprehend the nature of what Sun Tzu is saying.

Unicist Business Platforms to increase Growth and Profit

The objective of a Unicist Business Platform is to install a result driven organization model that allows ensuring the results of businesses to generate growth and increase profit.

It uses the Unicist Business Architecture to develop businesses as adaptive systems ensuring the results by the use of a high level of automation to transform the solutions that are developed by the prototypers into final systems to manage the business processes.

The differentiated aspects of the unicist technologies are the use of “Business Objects”, prototypers and automated processes to develop the systems. This ensures that the results of growth and profit improvement can be achieved.

The unicist organizational design uses prototypers to develop the prototype that is finally transformed into the system to be used in a business unit.

https://www.unicist.org/conceptual-thinking/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/wp_unicist_business_architecture_en.pdf

Prototypers are extremely flexible operational units that are used in destructive and non-destructive pilot tests to define a prototype of an organizational process.

Expanding markets using white papers

Commercial white papers are universal tools to inform clients of what is behind of what is being sold.

But white papers are extremely useful in some cases and extremely useless in others. It is necessary to understand their nature in order to define when and how to use them and how to design their content.

A commercial white paper explains the solution that is behind a product or service. It is not a description of a product or a service; that is the functionality of a brochure.

The design of white papers needs to be neutral, it cannot sell anything. It is implicitly a “teaching material”, which means that it has to be focused on providing something useful.

Therefore, commercial white papers have to be useful information for the market that helps readers to solve a problem.

They need to provide the basics of the technology that sustains the solution of the problem and need to be sustained by the authoritative role that is implicit in the brand of the company. If the brand doesn’t suffice, a personal, credible and authoritative role can be a substitute for it.

The adequate use of white papers allows expanding the boundaries of a business into other areas where the solutions provided are useful.

Some typical markets for the use of white papers are: medicine, technology, industry, knowledge businesses, information technology, sports, etc.

Business Modeling: Using questions and answers in business

Businesses are, by definition, conscious activities to satisfy needs. Businessmen/women can approach these needs based on the answers they have or based on the questions they pose.

Selling only “black cars” is an answer driven approach; researching which color of cars are desired is a question driven approach.

People who do what they believe are answer driven. People who do what is needed are question driven.

Question driven businesses are, by nature, “liberal” because the input comes from the needs of the market. Answer driven businesses are “conservative” because the needs are defined by the businessmen/women.

Minimum strategies of businesses, which are those that are under the control of a company, can be managed with answers. Methods, rules and guidelines are defined ways to develop an activity and are homologous to what we call answers.

Maximal strategies of companies, which expand the boundaries of businesses, need to be managed based on the questions. The problem is to understand what the market is saying. The answers are, by definition, ambiguous and require understanding the unified field of the business in order to be interpreted.

Maximal strategies require “liberals” and minimum strategies require “conservatives” to manage businesses.

Managing questions makes the introjection of the needs of the market possible; managing answers implies projecting one’s decisions. Business modeling requires both approaches to be successful.

Expanding the boundaries of businesses in order to grow

The expansion of the boundaries of a business implies that those who manage it need to expand the unified field of the business they have in their mind.

Businesses need to be envisioned in their processes and results in order to be managed. The expansion of boundaries can only be managed by those who have a precise vision of the new boundaries that need to be achieved.

Every individual has boundaries in her/his mind that provide the security framework to adapt to the environment. Time to adapt is necessary for an individual to expand the boundaries of a business.

Therefore, the expansion of boundaries of businesses, which is a condition for growth, requires a strategy in which companies need to have the people to make it happen.

The starting actions require the implementation of a “Special Operation Force” (SOF) that has the capacity to deal with the new boundaries having no pre-concepts driven by the preexisting limits.

The natural way to do so is by integrating to this force, members of the company that have the capacity but were not involved in the preexisting boundaries. This avoids change resistance and innovation blindness. An external SOF is needed as a palliative to save energy.

As a transition, for the starting point, an external SOF, provides a minimum strategy that establishes a safer environment for the internal SOF. It is a price that needs to be paid in all the cases in which the new boundaries imply an extension of the concept of the products, services or solutions sold.

Unicist Business Platforms structure Business Units

Companies have two customers: their market and their shareholders.

Unicist Business Platforms are integrated business processes that foster business expansion while covering the administrative aspects or integrating them within.

UBPs use unicist business objects to ensure the results of the work processes. Thus UBPs structure a business unit including its expansion, decision support, control and operational systems.

The maximal strategy is driven by the adaptive system including both the expansion and the decision support systems. This allows expanding the boundaries of a business and structuring it to make it stable.

As a business unit, it needs to be measured by results which include both growth and profit. The transformation of cost centers into business units implies that the business might have external and/or internal clients.

It has to be considered that the concept of transforming cost centers into business units is an extension of boundaries in itself.
