Blue Eagle Award 2011

2011 is the year of the 35th anniversary of The Unicist Research Institute. It is a very special year because of the trend of ontology based solutions TURI is leading in the world.

Therefore, it is the year of expanding the alliances with complementary organizations worldwide.

The research projects that are ongoing in basic research and adjacent fields of individual and institutional evolution allow us to expect to exceed the number of 4,000 researched ontological structures before the end of the anniversary-year.

There will be several activities to celebrate the anniversary beginning with the presentation of a story-book, on April 30th, written by Noemi Brown.

Celebrations will end with the XI International Unicist Conference that culminates with the communication of the “Blue Eagle Award 2011” for the best work on the “Nature of a Business Success” (Facebook). The terms for the contest will be published in May.

NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute is the major research organization in the world in its specialty based on more than 3,500 ontological researches in complexity sciences, developed since 1976 until September 2010, applied to individual, institutional and social evolution. The applicative researches are based on the discovery of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature and the consequent Unicist Ontology of Evolution.

Unicist business benchmarking: recreating vs. copying

The objective of benchmarking is to learn from the market. Benchmarking forces individuals to face the market and confront with the possible weaknesses of its value proposal.

The learning processes are materialized in a recreation process that allows integrating the benchmark by upgrading the value proposition at a conceptual level.

There is also the possibilities of copying solutions that are not protected by intellectual property.

Recreation is energy consuming but allows overcoming the benchmark with better solutions. Copying tends towards cloning solutions which probably will be at a lower level than the benchmark but might have lower costs.

The recreation process requires apprehending the ontology of the benchmark at building a better operational solution. Creation, and also recreation, requires sound knowledge.

Ontological benchmarking requires understanding the ontological structure of the business aspects that are being compared.

It allows apprehending the nature of the activity and widening the possibilities of the expansion of the functionality of the value proposition.
Operational benchmarking allows cloning. Ontological benchmarking allows recreating. The use of both promotes success.

Conspiracy theory practice as escape valve or addiction

Conspiracy theory practitioners are individuals who deposit on authorities the responsibility of all the evils of the world.

This practice can be an escape valve for frustration or an addiction. As an escape valve it appears when the individual is frustrated and disappears when the frustration has been overcome.

It becomes an addiction when individuals use it to avoid responsibilities. In this case it becomes part of the justification of the actions of “stagnant survivors”.

Stagnant survivors are self-marginalized people who generate parallel realities to live in without assuming the responsibility of being part of a society. Therefore they need to generate conflictive relationships with authoritative roles.

Conspiracy theory practitioners find the justification of appropriating value through the exertion of power degrading the role of authorities based on the superiority / inferiority complex that sustains their theories.

It has to be considered that human strengths have, necessarily,  implicit weaknesses. Human strengths vanish when their implicit weaknesses are eliminated.

Addictive conspiracy theory practitioners expose the implicit weaknesses without showing their counterparts. Thus they destroy authoritative roles and feel justified for their value appropriating actions and inactions.

They are paradigmatic business hackers who install ethical viruses in organizations in order to destroy them.
