Unicist Benchmarking: an approach to business innovations

Benchmarking was fully associated with copying before the Unicist Ontological Benchmarking was developed. It produced paradoxical results in most of the cases.

The Unicist Approach to 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.

“There are three different points of view to benchmark business activities.

1) The point of view of the leaders who need to ensure that the differentiation with the followers is still there and the confirmation that innovators cannot materialize their threat.

2) The point of view of the followers who need to know their positioning to take advantage of their role.

3) The point of view of innovators who intend to install new paradigms in niches, segments or markets and benchmark to confirm and/or build differentiation.

The battle for leadership is about who establishes the standards of a market. In other words, the battle is about “Who is the benchmark?” considered as such by the rest of the competitors.

But there is another point of view we do not consider part of the business establishment. It is the role of the survivors who use benchmarking and reverse engineering to copy competitors’ products, services, processes, technologies etc.

Some of them may become cost leaders in low-cost countries in the world, but most of them are “butterfly companies” that live and die copying.”

The Unicist Approach to Businesses is Objects Driven

Nature is organized by objects and the unicist approach emulates the organization of nature in order to promote the expansion of businesses.

The unicist approach allows expanding businesses using gravitational, catalyzing, entropy inhibiting, inhibiting and driving objects.

This allows that the operational aspects of businesses are managed making them safer, saving energy while accelerating the production of results.

The use of objects requires no previous knowledge of their intrinsic functionality. All what is needed is using them at an operational level with the predefined timing in order to work in a synchronic way with the work processes where they are inserted.

But they do not replace people; they upgrade the results of their work. The processes need to be managed by people who use the business objects as pilots use the autopilots of their airplane.

People need to manage the process in order to substitute the business objects when the external working conditions exceed the predefined limits of their functionality.

The energy saved using business objects exceeds 30% of the energy consumed before their installation. It requires a transition period to move from human managed adaptive processes to business objects driven processes.

What is the Unicist Approach to Businesses about?

The purpose of the unicist approach is to influence the evolution of businesses by expanding their critical mass in the environment and organizing their processes using business objects.

At an operational level this approach increases the reliability of the operation and the quality delivered by a business.

When dealing with the adaptive aspects of businesses, the unicist approach allows introducing continuous improvement and catalyzes the growth in the markets.

The Unicist approach is implemented as spin-offs of the unicist technologies to build business units that drive the results to be produced. Market Labs are a typical example of these spin-offs.

The basic unicist technologies that sustain the unicist approach include:

1)      The ontogenetic maps of the functions that define the business processes.

2)      The object driven organization model.

3)      The necessary business objects to be installed.

4)      The cognitive objects to manage the fundamentals of the business.

The unicist approach is at the same time a breakthrough and a back to basic. It is a breakthrough because it is based on the discovery of the ontogenesis of evolution and it is a back to basics because it allows integrating the fundamentals of businesses with the technical analytical knowledge.

What did the unicist approach to business change?

The unicist approach established a new starting point in businesses. It is fully focused on business expansion having changed the paradigms to diagnose, develop strategies and design business architecture.

What Was Not Possible in Business Before the Unicist Approach?

 1)      The development of diagnoses beginning with the nature of a business and ending with its operation.

2)      The development of ontology based, reasonable, understandable and reliable global, country, market and business future scenarios.

3)      The design of synergic maximal and minimum strategies for business growth

4)      The building of business objects to work as drivers, catalysts and entropy inhibitors of business processes.

5)      The management of businesses as unified fields taking advantage of the possibilities while saving energy.

6)      The segmentation of markets including the hard, functional, psychological, conceptual and life-style aspects to influence buying processes.

7)      The integration of fundamental analysis and technical analysis to develop reliable knowledge.
