Adaptive systems are systems that have been designed to interact with the external and internal environment. To be able to organize by objects it is necessary to use both adaptive and administrative systems to organize the work processes.
Adaptive systems are necessary to expand the boundaries of work. Thus, continuous improvement, customer relationship management and project management are paradigmatic cases of adaptive systems in work processes.
Adaptive systems are necessary to provide the maximal strategy based on their flexibility and feedback capacity while administrative systems are necessary to establish a secure operational and control activity.
The use of adaptive systems in the company has been disregarded in the past because the control and operational activities prevailed over the market growth and competition.
The Unicist Standard provides the necessary structure to design adaptive systems where they are needed.
This R&D book begins with the description of the ontology of “Work as an Adaptive System” followed by the description of the different types of organizations that deal with work.
Then the context ofAdaptive Systems is being synthetically described in its components: ObjectDriven Management, Institutional Immune Systems and Object driven organization.Finally, you will access the Unicist Standard for theR&D of adaptive systems in order to establish the basic conditions todesign work, organizational and institutional processes.

NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute has been, since 1976, the pioneer in complexity science research to deal with adaptive entities and became a private global decentralized leading research organization in the field of adaptive systems and environments. It was one of the precursors of the Industry 4.0 concept
