Apprehending Unicist Ontologies for Business Objects Design

The knowledge of the ontology of a specific reality is necessary in order to build an object to influence it. This abstract is a description of the methods individuals need to use to apprehend the ontology of an adaptive system.

Unicist objects are adapted systems designed to influence the evolution of other (wider) adapted systems. Individual, business and social growth are paradigmatic adapted systems where unicist objects can be installed to drive or accelerate growth.

Introduction

Every individual has his natural type of logical thinking and strategic thinking. This defines the type of problems s/he can deal with.

https://www.unicist-school.org/complexity-sciences/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/unicist_ethics_en.pdf

Everyone’s responsibility is making use of what one has to make things happen.

The maturity of knowledge depends on the hunger, responsibility and will of individuals and the prices they accept to pay to achieve it.

Apprehension of ontological structures

The objective of this work is to provide a guide to apprehend the ontological structure of a specific reality when the generic ontological algorithm already as been discovered and developed.

To discover ontologies and develop ontological algorithms you can find the Unicist Standard at:

The Unicist Standard for the Ontological R&D of Adaptive Systems:
http://www.unicist.org/deb_ustdrd.php
The Unicist Standard to Research the Ontology of Human Adaptive Systems:
http://www.unicist.org/deb_ustdas.php

“Concept” is the plain language name given for an ontological structure and “fundamentals” is the name given to the elements that integrate it.

Sound knowledge and maturity are needed to approach an ontological structure.

Maturity implies that individuals are focused on adding value and profiting from its counterpart in a specific reality.

Therefore we will be focusing on how individuals, having different types of logical thinking, can apprehend an ontological structure.

It has to be said that the first step to approach a new field is to recognize it. To do so individuals compare what they “see” with a preconcept they have. That is what we have named “analogical thinking” meaning that the individual projects on the external reality a preconcept s/he has. This projection stagnates if individuals need to confirm their beliefs or needs.

If individuals have the inner freedom to introject a different external reality the thinking process begins; if not, individuals approach reality with their stagnated survivor ethics.

Apprehending unicist ontologies

We will be following the steps of approaching concepts starting with the operational approach.

Apprehending ontologies with operational thinking

It is a way to adapt to reality based on its operational aspects.

The use of objective scientific tools such as statistics, neural networks, genetic algorithms, value analysis, etc allows finding the hypothesis of the concept of a specific reality. The scientifically validated results provide a hypothesis of the concept that underlies the observable facts and actions.

As it is based on the research of effects it is needed to be confirmed to avoid fallacious conclusions.

This knowledge can be used after statistically valid pilot tests have been done. It is functional to all those fields of action where secure knowledge is unnecessary.

Apprehending ontologies with analytical thinking

To approach reality with analytical thinking requires knowing the idea of the concept.

Analytical thinking implies analyzing the hypothetical idea of a concept in order to find its structure and make the logical validation of it. Unicist ontological analysis has to be used to make this validation.

Analytical thinking provides the static valid ontological structure to be used. When it is not based on operational knowledge it provides the hypothetical ontological structure of a reality following the rules of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature.

This knowledge allows adjusting the operational knowledge and providing an approach to the ontological algorithms to deal with a specific reality. It allows confirming the hypothesis of the concept defined at the operational level.

Apprehending ontologies with systemic (scientific) thinking

To approach reality with systemic thinking the dynamic of a concept has to be known. This knowledge can have been empirically built or can be based on following the steps that started at a previous thinking level.

The next step for those who have a natural systemic approach to reality is the operational confirmation of its dynamic.

Systemic thinking requires designing tests that allow confirming the hypothetical dynamic that has been defined. It provides a valid knowledge for all those fields that can be managed based on cause-effect relationships. This implies that it can be used in the fields where a real influence on reality can be exerted.

Apprehending ontologies with conceptual thinking

Conceptual thinking allows apprehending a specific reality as a unified field. It is based on confirming the idea of a concept based having experienced it in an adapted way.

Conceptual thinking allows using experiences in homologous fields as valid experiences to develop solutions with added value.

The use of conceptual thinking is the final step of the apprehension of an ontological structure.

Natural conceptual thinkers have to confirm the idea of a concept based on unicist reflection and the use of destructive and non-destructive pilot tests.

Conceptual thinking provides the solutions to deal with complex adaptive systems in which the boundaries are open. It provides secure knowledge of the possibilities of actions and the probabilities of success.

Conclusion

Unicist thinking is the integration of these four types of logical thinking processes. It allows emulating the ontogenetic intelligence of nature to apprehend the ontology of evolution in order to build strategies that allow using unicist objects to drive and accelerate evolution in specific fields.

To build objects, whatever their type, requires being able to apprehend the ontology of the specific reality where they need to be installed.

This requires having achieved a mature knowledge and relationship with that reality in order to be able to focus on adding value and benefiting from the counterpart.

The Unicist Ontology of Inner Freedom

Inner freedom is the capacity of individuals to assume the responsibility they have, making conscious adapted decisions.

IUnicist Ontology of Inner Freedomnner freedom can be earned by those individuals who are able to assume the responsibility for their adapted actions in an environment being able to leave aside their own needs when making decisions.

People have lost their freedom when needs drive their actions.

Therefore, inner freedom is something people gain step by step, if they are able to pay the prices, or lose step by step, if they need to impose their rules.

It can be said that inner freedom is a utopia when instinctive needs, emotional needs and social values are sort of inhibitors for inner freedom.

Individuals who achieved inner freedom can make accurate decisions based on their capacity to do and to discriminate their inside from the outside which allows them to assume the individual, social and transcendent responsibility.

Building Corporate Universities as Unicist Business Objects

In-company Corporate Universities are an extremely powerful business object to promote growth and measurable monetary results.

Originally, they were derived from academic and training activities providing know-how to the members of organizations. But some differentiated technological companies began to use them also to expand their businesses. Thus Corporate Universities began to work as business objects.

The Unicist Research Institute developed Corporate Universities as business objects, integrating the three objects that define their functionality:
1)    The driving object for know-how transfer
2)    The catalyzing object to accelerate actions in the market
3)    The gravitational object to structure authoritative differentiation in the market

Driving objects: Empirical approach

The driving Corporate Universities need to transfer empiric know-how to their participants.

Empirical knowledge is the core of this activity and analogous benchmarking is the natural approach to unknown operational practices.

They need to be developed in operational/analytical language in order to deal with the business operation.

Catalyzing objects: Systemic approach

The catalyzing Corporate Universities have to transfer knowledge on the technologies that sustain operational know-how.

Systemic knowledge is the core of catalyzing CU and the use of homologous (conceptual) benchmarking allows integrating unknown technologies in a new field of action.

They need to be developed in analytical/scientific language in order to deal with the innovative technology that is behind the operation.

Gravitational objects: Ontological approach

The gravitational Corporate Universities are built to provide essential knowledge to deal with the business.

They need to provide this knowledge in a way that the concepts dealt with become obvious and self-evident for the mass. They do not use benchmarks but metaphors to approach unknown fields.

They need to be developed in conceptual language in order to deal with the nature that underlies the business.

The lack of know-how defines the need for the driving function. This function becomes unnecessary as soon as the know-how has been acquired.

It has to be considered that innovation sustains the use of social catalysts and catalyzing objects. The catalyzing effect disappears when an innovation has been adopted by the environment. Therefore, catalysts need to be replaced when they are “worn out”.

Gravitational objects are stable because the essential aspects of businesses imply an endless discovering process.

Power and knowledge have an extremely conflictive relationship. That is why Corporate Universities are contraindicated for power centered businesses.

We want to remark that In-Company Corporate Universities designed as Business Objects have to be learning and not teaching centered.

Unicist Tweetinars for knowledge building

Unicist Tweetinars opened a new filed of knowledge building, sharing and learning in the field in which synthetic language is necessary to produce results.

The use of question based knowledge building is the natural way to approach adaptive systems which demand conceptual approaches in order to influence them.

Ontologies provide the necessary structures; ontological analysis provides the conceptual analytical tools and fundamentals establish the necessary action algorithms to influence business environments.

The precision of the use of language, the integration with facts and the development of reflection capacity are the three aspects that need to be considered when using Twitter as a knowledge building communication tool.

Maximal strategies require sailing against the wind

Maximal strategies are those that expand the boundaries of a business in order to add new businesses and accelerate minimum strategies. Minimum strategies are those where a company has the necessary critical mass to occupy an empty space in the market to make businesses.

Metaphorically it can be said that making business is analogous to sailing. One has to move ahead based on the conditions of the environment using the available winds and currents (trends) and taking advantage of the technology of the boat and the capacity of the captain and the crew.

Maximal strategies happen beyond the existent boundaries of a business.

Beyond one’s boundaries the environment is hostile. Therefore the boat has to move against the wind. This implies “tacking” which means avoiding the opposition of the wind.

Maximal strategic navigation is extremely uncomfortable and the final goal seems to be always “too far away”. Those who avoid the discomfort of tacking go nowhere.

Sub-objectives need to be achieved until a critical mass can be built transforming the maximal strategies into a minimum strategy.

Maximal strategies are the ones that move a company ahead. When a company has no maximal strategies it is imploding. If a company has no minimum strategies it is exploding. The integration of both is what makes businesses successful.

Every new business requires dealing with maximal strategies which implies needing to move against the wind. This year’s Blue Eagle Award will deal with the case of the launching of “Facebook”. We suggest seeing the movie “The Social Network”. You will find a tacking lesson there: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1285016/ (Recommendation: focus on the facts, not on the movie.)

Business sailing is a “Neverending Story”.

The global leading corporations use ontological solutions

The use of ontology based solutions to manage adaptive systems is expanding worldwide. The five most expanded countries for the Unicist Ontological solutions are: USA, Canada, UK, India and Australia. (See Google Analytics Image of the Unicist Partner News Blog)

The use of Unicist Ontological “Meta-models” is substituting empirical approaches to complex problems. The unicist ontology is based on the Ontogenetic Intelligence of Nature. Therefore there is an ontological logic to understand the nature of reality in its oneness.

Nature is not a question of opinion. From a functional point of view, the nature of a specific reality is unique. Therefore there can only be “one” ontology of a specific reality.

The expansion of the ontology based solutions requires that the Unicist Confederation has partners that can assume the responsibility for results when managing human adaptive systems.

The core of the activity that is being expanded deals with the promotion of growth in businesses.

Comparison of the ontological approaches to business

Ontological approaches to business were rediscovered when technology made the management of complex adaptive systems possible.

Stephen Hawking announced, many years ago, that the XXI century would be the era of complexity.

The ontological approach to complex adaptive systems is making it possible.

The development and use of the Unicist Ontology, its algorithms and objects started in 1976. Its objective was to increase the value generated by human adaptive systems and adaptive processes.

The expansion of the use of ontology included its application in the development of complex information systems and artificial intelligence.

The development of multiple languages to manage ontological approaches, such as the Web Ontology Language (OWL) and the Unicist Standard Language (USL), makes their universal expansion possible.

How to deal with open boundaries in Adaptive Systems?

The Unified Field Theory of Peter Belohlavek explains how an Adaptive System can be managed in spite of having open boundaries. The capacity of individuals to apprehend adaptive systems depends on the depth of their type of logical thought, the amplitude of their strategic intelligence and their ethical intelligence. Thus individuals know how they can deal with adaptive systems in order to influence them and make them produce results.

What is the Unicist Standard in Business for?

The Unicist Standard (US) in business has been developed for diagnosing, strategy building, conceptual design and conceptual planning. It includes the correspondent fundamentals and taxonomies. Dealing with the nature of businesses implies necessarily managing a fundamental approach and a technical analytical approach.

The US is a structure of procedures and norms to manage adaptive systems using the Unicist Algorithms. The final goal of the Unicist Standard is to develop “Unicist Objects” and Unicist Algorithms to manage complex adaptive systems such as businesses and future scenarios. It is based on more than 3,500 researches in complexity sciences developed since 1976 until September 2010.

Some of its Business applications:

-For Sales Improvement
-For Network Marketing
-For Market-share Growth

-For New/ Start-up Businesses
-For Business Diagnostics
-For Business Strategy
-For Business Growth

-For Quality Improvement
-For Productivity Improvement

Business viruses that destroy competitiveness

Fallacious myths generate a parallel reality when they are installed in businesses. Thus companies lose competitiveness and become survivors in their segment. The value added by fallacious myths is their coverage of the implicit weaknesses of an organization and, as people integrate based on their weakness, they are an important component of the spirit the corps of businesses.

Leaders: The fallacious myth of “ethics”

This fallacy builds an “ethics” that provides benefits for the institution, making the environment and/or their members pay the prices. This ethics has a strong moral basis that is driven by an anti-moral which provides the necessary peace of conscience. This fallacy is sustained by a strong feeling of impunity based on the leading role of the company.

Innovators: The fallacious myth of “added value”

Innovation does not imply the generation of added value. Innovators naturally generate the fallacious myth of added value to justify their innovation. This fallacious myth is sustained by the potential utility of an innovation based on the innovative behavior of the buyers and/or users.

Followers: The fallacious myth of “self-sufficiency”

Followers are differentiated market competitors that avoid investing in the field leaders invest: image, knowledge, technologies, etc. To compensate the lack of investment they need to generate a sense of self-sufficiency and to consider all what they are not willing to do as useless. They generate the fallacious myth of self-sufficiency when the actions were necessary in order to be competitive.

Small business: The fallacious myth of “justification”

“Non differentiated” market participants are organizations that are driven by the survivors ethics and need to have the necessary justifications for their “unadapted” action in a market. Foundations define the validity of what is being said or done, justifications define the needs of doing it. The fallacious myth of justification sustains the ethics of small businesses.

Understanding the natural fallacious myths of each type of company allows avoiding to be systematically installed in a parallel reality.
