The Unicist Institutional Maturity Model for Businesses

The maturity of an organization defines the company’s capacity for growth.

The Unicist Institutional Maturity Model (UIMM) has been developed to define the type of strategies and architectures that can be used in a company. The higher the maturity level the more expansive a business can be.

Unicist Institutional Maturity Model – UIMM

There are two entrepreneurial approaches, level A and B that are considered the initial maturity stage of a company.

A) Money driven organizations

Their goal is to profit from the environment in a materialistic way. They are driven by individual monetary goals and manage the business driven by their cash-flow.

B) Power driven organizations

Their goal is to obtain profits following the subjective rules of their owners. They are entrepreneurial organizations driven by the need to follow the non-structured orders of the entrepreneurs.

1) Materialistic driven institutions

Their everyday activity is driven by the guidelines that are strictly followed to ensure the operational results.

2) Ideology driven institutions

Their everyday activity is driven by strict rituals and methods that materialize the ideology. They establish a defined path to behave within the rules.

3) Value driven institutions

Their everyday activity is driven by the methodologies they have. They are strict in the application of their methodologies, which implicitly include the vision of their activity.

4) Transcendence driven institutions

In a transcendence driven institution the institutional vision is used in everyday activity. It has flexible methodologies to apply the vision but strict methods to follow the operational rules.

The maturity of an organization evolves based on the functionality and success of its rules and procedures. The flexibility of its business processes is a consequence of having achieved an adequate reliability level in the application of the methods.

More than 4,200 unicist ontological researches were developed since 1976 until December 2011 in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution. They included the development of the unicist ontogenetic maps (DNA) of institutions:

The Critical Mass of Business Objects

Having a critical mass in business actions is a basic condition of every element that is used to influence human adaptive systems. Business objects follow this rule and need to have a critical mass in order to be inserted in work processes.

A business object works as a critical mass when it is able to produce the results that have been planned. To do so it has to be extremely aesthetic, fulfilling the needs of the environment, and having an absolute influence based on an extreme and synchronic added value within a context of full credibility.

Simplified: something has a critical mass in the business field when it is extremely aesthetic, has a high level of influential power and is fully credible.

The adaptive aspects of businesses need to be managed having critical mass in each action to avoid degrading the business by just developing over-adapted actions. The use of business objects, including entropy inhibitors and catalysts, allows making this possible.

Without the use of business objects the critical mass depends fully on the critical mass of the individuals who manage a business process. The Unicist Standard defines the aspects that need to exist in an object with critical mass.
