Unicist Business Objects based Institutional Immune Systems

The immune system of an organization is defined by the structure of objects that are able to detect, isolate and destroy the external elements that attack the institution.

The immune system of an organization implies the existence of all the “objects” that are available in order to destroy the threat.

This is necessary in order to liberate the “negative” energy introduced by a “virus”. From an ontological point of view the institutional immune system can be shown in the following structure.

Action inhibiting objects are those whose function is the elimination of threats.

Entropy inhibiting objects are those whose function is to avoid a dysfunctional entropy of the active function.

Driving objects are those that impulse the action in an institution.

Catalyzing objects are those that accelerate the functionality of the whole or parts of the institution.

Gravitational objects are those that influence other objects in order to provide the necessary energy to function.

NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute is the pioneering complexity science research organization developing solutions for complex adaptive systems using ontogenetic ontologies and object driven technologies. More than 3,500 ontological researches were developed since 1976 until September 2010 in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution.

 


The pathway from Analogical Thinking to Operational Thinking

Foundation-building is the bridge between analogical thinking and operational thinking.

Unicist Ontology of FoundationsThe approach to external reality in businesses requires the use of analogical thinking. The recognition of an external reality requires projecting on it the internal image one has.

External facts become “UFOs” if one has no internal image to project. This projection comes from the use of analogical thinking which happens spontaneously and unconsciously.

Individual’s thinking process begins when the individual is able to analyze the unconscious perception made by his analogical thinking process and is able to change it after having recognized the subjective aspects s/he deposited on the external fact.

If this projection remains unchanged the individual unavoidable needs to enter in the “stagnated survivor ethics” in order to benefit from the environment exerting the necessary and justified power to obtain benefits without generating value. Ignorance generates stagnated survivors.

Understanding the foundations of reality is what allows moving from analogical to operational thinking. The technical-analytical knowledge is what allows building reasonable, provable and understandable foundations.

People who are installed in stagnant survivor ethics cannot deal with foundation building. They always have a justification to avoid acquiring the necessary knowledge.

Business Expansion is based on Inner Freedom

Inner freedom is the capacity of individuals to assume the responsibility they have, making conscious adapted decisions.

IUnicist Ontology of Inner Freedomnner freedom can be earned by those individuals who are able to assume the responsibility for their adapted actions in an environment being able to leave aside their own needs when making decisions.

People have lost their freedom when needs drive their actions.

Therefore, inner freedom is something people gain step by step, if they are able to pay the prices, or lose step by step, if they need to impose their rules.

It can be said that inner freedom is a utopia when instinctive needs, emotional needs and social values are sort of inhibitors for inner freedom.

Individuals who achieved inner freedom can make accurate decisions based on their capacity to do and to discriminate their inside from the outside which allows them to assume the individual, social and transcendent responsibility.

Maximal strategies in business: Beware of Smart Alecks

Smart Alecks cannot add value. Maximal Strategies demand adding value to the environment to go beyond the existing boundaries of a business.

Smart Alecks are advantage takers that have an amoral behavior in order to profit from the environment. This kind of behavior is the natural response of stagnant survivors when managing businesses.

Stagnant survivors are naturally “smarties” in order to live from the environment.

They are driven by anti-intelligence and anti-intuition having no ethical rules in their behavior. They need to degrade the environment in order to justify their appropriation. When they have a high IQ, they become extremely dangerous because their critics are very smart, fallacious and well disguised.

The awareness of their actions is “zero” because they are basically driven by greed that drives them into fallacious behaviors.

One cannot deal with smart alecks because they assume no commitment with what they apparently agreed, and they always find the necessary justification for their non-fulfillment.

Their amoral behavior is sustained by accomplices in order to have the power to impose their rules. They manipulate others based on the generation of urgent needs that hinder the existence of alternative actions.

Unicist Tweetinar on Unicist Business Objects Building

The Unicist Standard for business objects building defines the norms that business objects have to fulfill to generate results.

Extreme design, the use of unicist modeling and the structure of the ontology of objects allow building unicist business objects.

Unicist business objects (UBO) are encapsulated adaptive systems that produce predefined results that can be inserted in work processes to increase productivity and quality and to save energy.

Classification of objects based on their use

Drivers: they are objects that produce results within work processes.

Catalysts: they are objects that are designed to accelerate drivers, tasks or processes.

Entropy inhibitors: Their role is to minimize the entropy of processes and results.

Inhibitors: They are objects to inhibit anti-conceptual actions in processes.

Gravitational objects: They are objects that generate an influential context that promotes the need of the results provided by tasks, objects or processes.

Objects do not substitute people’s responsibility, they provide a safer, faster and energy saving solution to be installed in work processes.

That is why objects can only be installed in organizations where the leaders assumed the responsibility for the results produced by the processes they manage.

Building Corporate Universities as Unicist Business Objects

In-company Corporate Universities are an extremely powerful business object to promote growth and measurable monetary results.

Originally, they were derived from academic and training activities providing know-how to the members of organizations. But some differentiated technological companies began to use them also to expand their businesses. Thus Corporate Universities began to work as business objects.

The Unicist Research Institute developed Corporate Universities as business objects, integrating the three objects that define their functionality:
1)    The driving object for know-how transfer
2)    The catalyzing object to accelerate actions in the market
3)    The gravitational object to structure authoritative differentiation in the market

The driving object needs to be developed in operational/analytical language in order to deal with the business operation.

The catalyzing object needs to be developed in analytical/scientific language in order to deal with the innovative technology that is behind the operation.

The gravitational object needs to be developed in conceptual language in order to deal with the nature that underlies a business.

The lack of know-how defines the need for the driving function. This function becomes unnecessary as soon as the know-how has been acquired.

It has to be considered that innovation sustains the use of social catalysts and catalyzing objects. The catalyzing effect disappears when an innovation has been adopted by the environment. Therefore, catalysts need to be replaced when they are “worn out”.

Gravitational objects are stable because the essential aspects of businesses imply an endless discovering process.

Power and knowledge have an extremely conflictive relationship. That is why Corporate Universities are contraindicated for power centered businesses.

We want to remark that In-Company Corporate Universities designed as Business Objects have to be learning and not teaching centered.

(Based on the research on In-company Corporate Universities)

Unicist Tweetinar on ACOs and Patient Centered Management

Accountable Care Organizations are, among other aspects, a way to introduce Patient Centered Management in the healthcare business.

unicist patient centered organizationThe basics of medicine are patient centered. That is why the regulation of the activity focusing on patients is just a back to basics. Patient Centered Management is an object driven solution to structure patient orientation.

Electronic Patient Records are the paradigmatic sign of this approach. Electronic Healthcare records are their natural complement in order to include the aspects that deal with the diseases that are being considered.

Electronic Medical Records, being focused on medical activity, allow putting this patient orientation into action.

The EMR that are being fostered are the natural step to start with a structured patient orientation.

There will be a (one hour) Unicist Tweetinar on June 13 at 10:00 am (Eastern Time) on the ontology of Patient Centered Management and its integration in a system including EMR, EHR, EPR. It will be developed at http://www.twitter.com/unicistontology


The Unicist Ontological Structure of Small Businesses

Five extremely successful growth programs with small businesses were the final test for the unicist ontology of small businesses.

Unicist Ontology of small BusinesessThe knowledge of their ontology allows small businesses to expand their activities without changing their nature. It also provides the limits of the expansion possibilities.

As it is self-evident the purpose of small businesses is profit. They are successful when their leaders are product/sales wizards meaning that they are able to influence their niche ensuring revenue.

At the same time they are investment reluctant. Any expenditure that has no necessary relationship with incomes is considered an investment and needs to be avoided. That is why they do not develop brands.

When they are involving they manage through cash-flow in order to ensure their survival. But successful small companies work with short term objectives and fully controlled operational action plans. The cash-flow is their final validation.

They use business objects basically to promote their products and services to generate revenue.
