General Electric, a world leader in innovation

As Nikola Tesla laid the groundings for “Innovative Research Laboratories”, Thomas A. Edison laid the groundings for “Product Development Laboratories.”

The unicist standard for business strategy allows defining the fundamentals of General Electric’s business in order to benchmark its experiences.

General Electric was born together with the “Product Development Laboratories” of Thomas A. Edison. Thus General Electric’s business concept is driven by research in all the fields where it considers there is a possibility to generate added value to the market.

In the development of innovations, the minimum strategy drives toward the building of social capital. This is the central fundamental of General Electric and it is sustained by the diversified “Product Development Laboratories” they have around the world.

General Electric is a leading firm in the different fields it works because, besides being extremely innovative, it is Market Value Adding focused.

Being focused on market value adding allows developing useful researches and strengthening the market bonds by improving the social capital in the environment.

The structural approach to innovations developed by General Electric is an “extreme” benchmark for innovative businesses.

Benchmarking: Is the Unicist Standard a Rolls-Royce?

Last week, TURI’s Marketing Manager said “…the Unicist Standard is a Rolls-Royce car” provoking a harsh response of a Unicist Business Search Engine user.

This generated the need of clarifying what a Rolls-Royce is, and if dealing with the nature of businesses, to diagnose, develop future scenarios, build strategies and design organizations based on the unicist theory of evolution, is essentially analogous or not.

If you Google “unicist theory of evolution” or “unicist ontology of evolution” you will find access to all the information you need.

The questions we are posing to be able to understand Rolls-Royce’s benchmarks are:

1) What is it that it offers?
2) Why is it homologous to the Unicist Standard?
3) What other analogous cases are there in the market?

Listening to Rolls-Royce’s presentation is strongly recommended:

Please reflect on the presentation to go beyond the appearance of the products and the pre-concepts you might have.

The Unicist Research Institute researched the Rolls-Royce market 15 year ago in order to discover its ontological structure and develop homologous strategies in other markets.

In two weeks you will be able to access the answer on this blog.

Unicist Family Business Strategies – The Unicist Standard

Business-driven family companies and family-driven companies are highly conditioned by the family archetype of each culture and the solution given to the roles that this fulfills. In the cultures where the affective predominates over the economic and social role, families that have businesses are highly inefficient and are always at risk as they don’t stabilize as institutions (independently of their members).

In cultures where the roles are balanced, business-driven family companies and family-driven companies are distinct fundamentally for their capacity and speed of growth. Business-driven family companies grow more rapidly.

In cultures where the predominant roles in the family are social insertion and the economic role, families with companies have a powerful influence in the environment. Although structurally they have less capacity to grow, they compensate this with the influence exerted in the environment. In markets with imperfect competition they build very powerful empires.

When we are dealing with business-driven family companies we can state that they are more effective than family-driven companies in the active roles, which are hunting, where one goes out to seek the animal in the market, and agriculture where intensive activities are developed.

An efficiently organized business-driven family company is more effective in passive hunting where it works from the basis of the influence of the family brand, and passive agriculture where extensive is what counts.

Therefore each business-driven family company must know what market niche to occupy where it can best achieve results.

We want to highlight that in marginal markets with highly imperfect competition, these concepts have no effects in reality, which is managed by non-company relationships, where the family-driven company has the weight of the family in that society.

Benchmarking General Electric: The Nature of Innovation

Managing the nature of innovation is basic when dealing with growth. This is something General Electric manages since the era of Thomas Edison.

The Unicist Standard in Innovation Management deals with the object driven technologies that are necessary to manage innovations.

You will find the information on the nature of innovation between the lines of Jeff Immelt’s lecture, CEO of G.E:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YOEwYAXH10

Next week we will be providing the ontology of innovation in order to help benchmark General Electric.

Aesthetics is the core of Steve Jobs’ business approach

Apple’s success is based on the capacity of perceiving the latent needs of the market and delivering original innovative solutions.

We hope you made the effort to learn from Steve Jobs about Apple’s fundamentals as we proposed.

If you still haven’t done the “homework” we recommend watching the video before following the reading of the answer to the questions posted:

http://unicist.net/it/learning-from-steve-jobs-apple%E2%80%99s-fundamentals/

We consider that the core fundamental of Apple is aesthetics. But aesthetics is not beauty. It goes beyond.

Apple products are aesthetic because they complete the needs of their prospect clients, they are desirable and harmonic. They also include inaccessible aspects that basically deal with innovative technology.

It can be said that the integration of an innovative technology with the fulfillment of latent needs are the core fundamentals that drive Apple’s business.

Steve Jobs is a doer himself

“Doers make things happen. Therefore, more than ever before, it is time for doers in the world.”

Doers are very special individuals. They are basically individuals whose fulfillment is based on doing transcendent things. They need to achieve what they have decided to do. When things cannot be done the easy way, they find the necessary path to make things happen.

“The world is built by doers and enjoyed by followers”. The joy of doers is in the deed itself.

We hope this has been useful.

Unicist Object Driven Learning

The Unicist Standard in Object Driven Learning fosters a conscious approach to better adapt to the environment by increasing the added value delivered.

Conscious approaches to reality imply being able to develop strategies by solving problems or building solutions, by forecasting what will happen in an environment and by developing operational solutions to materialize the added value.

The discovery of the ontology of human learning opened the frontiers of knowledge to design educational processes, integrating both extremes: the learning of operational processes and the learning of strategic approaches to reality.

When the same knowledge acquisition tools that are used in operational fields are applied to the learning of strategic approaches, they produce paradoxical results, and the same happens when strategic approaches are used for operational fields.

Presentation of the Unicist Standard in Education

The Unicist Standard in Education began with the use of reflection (action-reflection-action) to approach learning in the field of complex problems. It uses the unicist ontology of learning to emulate the structure of nature.

Dealing with the nature of businesses

Learning to deal with the nature of businesses requires going beyond the facts in order to be able to apprehend the underlying concepts.

The nature of a business is defined by its fundamentals. Fundamentals are homologous to the concepts that drive a business and are defined by their ontological structure.

This sounds very complex but fortunately it is very simple. It implies that the nature of a business can be defined in a reasonable and logical language that makes it manageable.

But learning the fundamentals requires integrating “action”, where the learner needs to be alone in order to assume the full responsibility for results, and “reflection” where the learner can be guided.

This requires time but the reward is being able to produce consistent results. That is why it is a natural approach for doers.
