Children deal with complexity but adults need to learn it

Action-reflection-action is the necessary process to deal with the adaptive aspects of reality and with businesses considered as adaptive entities.

Paradoxically, this process is developed naturally, using intuition, by children, but adults need to recover their capacity of facing reality without fears if they want to develop an action-reflection-action learning process.

Children would not grow if they did not have this capacity, because most of the problems they face are complex for them.

The object driven learning technology defined the structure that allowed making adaptive learning processes accessible for all the people who need to deal with complex problems and are willing to make the effort to solve them.

Indoctrination requires the use of a theory-practice approach in order to install a theory to rule actions; adaptive learning, on the other hand, requires an action-reflection-action and a theory-practice approach. Indoctrination is security driven while adaptive learning is freedom driven.

The unicist learning objects provided an approach to adaptive learning for adults.

The object driven learning technology defines the four levels of objects to be used when integrating problematic with thematic learning.

The four levels of learning objects are:

  1. Learning context building objects
  2. Possibilities opening objects
  3. Reflection driving objects
  4. Research driving objects

This is what the unicist approach to learning is about. The use of learning objects simplifies the adaptive process and provides, on the one hand, a logical security framework to learn and, on the other hand, it allows expanding the boundaries of people’s talents.

The Challenge of using Unicist Adaptive Project Management

The development of a new approach to manage projects became necessary to deal with adaptive systems. Adaptive systems produce actions and reactions during the development of a project that need to be managed in order to ensure the achievement of the objectives.

Adaptive Project PlanningWhile the traditional approach considers that plan B is an emergency plan to achieve goals, the unicist approach to project management considers that the plan B is superior and includes plan A, the plan C is superior than plan B but includes it, and the plan D is an abortion plan that includes the development of a succedaneum solution.

These alternative plans have to be predefined before the project begins. It is necessary to consider that the most participative alternative is given by plan A and the most “directive” alternatives are given by plan C and D.

That is why the unicist approach to project management is necessary to deal with adaptive systems that are in motion and unnecessary when dealing with systems where the adaptive aspects do not need to be considered.

The stages of the Adaptive Project Management are:

1. Process Control Centered

The process control centered manager is focused on establishing the necessary operational, administrative and control systems to monitor the process using a forward chaining design process that allows having the information on each stage of the process.

2. Authoritative Management Centered

Authoritative management includes having the capacity of controlling the processes. It implies that the manager has the vision of the problem and alternative solutions in order to define the plan C for any central aspect of a project.

3. Objects Management Centered

This level includes having the capacity of developing an authoritative management of the project. It requires that the manager be able to apprehend the complexity of the adaptive aspects of projects.

4. Process Management Centered

This level includes the capacity of developing the object management of projects. It is based on having apprehended the unified field of the project as a solution in the context where it is being developed.

Conclusion

Adaptive Project Management requires integrating project planning and project execution skills to ensure that the solutions be achieved. It is based on approaching projects based on the use of processes and objects that have proven their capacity to provide the necessary solutions. It implies having a sound systemic knowledge and the knowledge of the fundamentals that underlie the solution.

Adaptive behavior assessment: the Unicist Japanese Park

The Unicist Japanese Park is a method that has been used since 1976 to evaluate the natural behavior when people are part of adaptive systems. It has been used to validate cultural archetypes, institutional cultures and personal behavior.

The purpose of this method is to find the natural organization that is used by people that demonstrates how they deal with their functionality to add value and to earn value.

It is based on building an emulation of a real adaptive system to integrate people in it and evaluate the functionality of their behavior. The emulation of the adaptive system needs to be defined knowing the operational and fundamental aspects that are included.

The first aspect that needs to be evaluated is how people focus their energy towards the generation of added value and measure how they assure the results. This allows defining the starting point of the value adding actions.

The second aspect to be assessed is how people deal with their efficacy, efficiency and quality assurance. This allows defining how people deal with their minimum strategies to be reliable.

This method provides reliable information of what happens naturally in an environment.

Unicist Education: Dealing with enterprises as adaptive systems

The unicist logical approach allowed managing the adaptive aspects of businesses by using unicist logical tools and business objects. This approach provides cross-cultural solutions based on the researches made at The Unicist Research Institute. To access the basics that sustain unicist education please access:
www.unicist.org/sdp.shtml

Complex adaptive aspects of businesses need to be learned in their dynamics which implies that they need to be learned making real applications based on the knowledge of their dynamic structure.

This is analogous to medical residencies in teaching hospitals where graduated physicians learn to manage a specialty. It has to be considered that medicine is a paradigmatic case of complexity:

The Future Scenario: Static vs. Dynamic Learning Processes

Unicist EducationThe superior education in business management provided an empirical operational and analytical framework for business management that upgraded professionalism in the XXth century.

The static empirical model that permitted administrating businesses provided the knowledge that allowed developing the necessary information technology that became redundant with the superior educational programs. Simultaneously, the explosive R&D capacity to release new products shortened their lifecycle.

These two situations, the redundancy of operational an analytical knowledge and the acceleration of business processes, made the static empirical approach to business become functional to business operation but dysfunctional to business management.

This scenario opened new demands for superior education in businesses that are still unsatisfied.

The Next Step: “teaching hospitals” in the business field

Business ResidenciesUnicist education is based on learning processes that are analogous to “teaching hospitals” based on real complex problem solving. The unicist educational model is a postgraduate model that deals with the learning of logical tools and business objects. You can access a white paper at:
www.unicist.org/deb_wpue.php

It requires having the necessary technical-analytical knowledge learned in graduate or undergraduate programs.

It requires the learning of:

1)      The building of future scenarios

2)      Diagnosing businesses

3)      Developing Unicist Strategies

4)      Building Business Architectures

The difference between the Unicist Education and the Professional Education can be synthesized in:

Unicist Education

Professional Education

Educational Framework Teaching Hospital / Clinics Workshops / Seminars / Courses
Educational Model Complex Problem Solving Systemic Problem Solving
Learning Approach Action-Reflection-Action Theory-Practice
Problem Solving Approach Results Driven Tasks Driven

Business Processes Adaptive Systems Operational Systems

Educational Alternatives

We propose you compare the differences between unicist education and professional education by accessing the information on the unicist logical approach and the approaches to cross-cultural businesses of four major Global MBAs (2 in the USA and 2 in the EU).

What is the Unicist Logical Approach to Businesses?

Learn about the Unicist Logical Approach at: http://www.unicist.net/clipboard 

The unicist logical approach manages the adaptive aspects of business as unified fields based on the knowledge of their ontogenetic maps.

library-access

Unicist Active Business Library

The knowledge of the ontogenetic map of a business, its market and the context allowed managing the fundamentals that define the possibilities of business actions.

The future scenario building became possible based on the knowledge of the ontology of evolution and the ontogenetic maps of a business and its restricted and wide contexts.

This knowledge allowed defining synergic maximal strategies, to expand beyond the boundaries of a business, and minimum strategies to work within them.

Adaptive business processes became reliable based on the use of ontology based business objects. The use of objects upgraded the role of human work in business.

The integration of fundamental analysis and technical analysis allowed building reliable business knowledge, transforming uncertainty into risk and integrating the knowledge of the possibilities of success with its probabilities.

All the solutions, business objects, technologies and knowledge provided by The Unicist Research Institute are based on the unicist logical approach and generate significant energy saving effects.

The Unicist Standard for Organizational Design

Organizational EffectivenessOrganizations are typical adaptive systems. If they were not, they could not survive.

The Unicist Standard for an organizational process requires having found the real characteristics of the external and internal environment in order to develop such process based on reality and not on a hypothetical reality.

Every design must include the integration of efficacy and efficiency in order to achieve the effectiveness that is required by the environment. If the organization has decided to introduce continuous improvement, it is necessary to include business objects to minimize the change of any improvement.

The steps for an organizational design are the following:

  1. Japanese Park – A pilot test to confirm the starting point.
  2. Definition of Responsibilities  – To allow dealing with the organization as an adaptive system.
  3. Clarification of the Methodology – Defining the logical approach to deal with the processes.
  4. Definition of the final objective – Confirming the “use value” of the organizational process (Pilot tests).
  5. Definition of the Methods – Definition of the methods to be followed. These methods are derived from the methodologies of step 3.
  6. Evaluation & Adjustment of Costs.
  7. Validating the “use value” of the organizational process in action (Pilot tests).

The Dualistic Approach transforms Aesthetics into Beauty

Unicist aesthetics defines the core aspect of any individual who wants to influence the environment. It is the central value of the critical mass of any influential action.

The driver of aesthetics is the capacity to complete the unsatisfied needs of someone or the environment.

The unicist double dialectical approach to aesthetics allows establishing stable perceptions integrating the desires of the counterparts with the necessary intrinsic harmony to complete their demands.

The dualistic approach transforms aesthetics into beauty, managing, on the one hand, the desires of the counterpart and, on the other hand, transforming harmony into conventional rules in order to be acceptable.

The dualistic approach to aesthetics tends to seduce clients with “empty” promises and apparent reliability. It tends to generate desires that are followed by disappointments.

Access a synthesis on the “Discovery of the Unicist Ontology of Aesthetics” that is available at the Scientific Dissemination Program. You will find there other syntheses that might be of your interest: https://www.unicist-school.org/complexity-sciences/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/unicist_aesthetics.pdf

Unicist Turnkey Solutions for End-Users in Business

From August 2012 on, only turnkey solutions will be provided to end users in business. This implies that the unicist ontology based and objects driven technologies will be only provided to Corporate and Professional Partners. No technologies will be sold to end-users.

This implies that end-users only need to manage the operation of the business objects / business units / business processes that are installed.

The partners who participate in the development of solutions will have the Unicist Knowledge Object Manager, the Unicist Fact-book and the Centralized Quality Assurance Services available.

As the Unicist Confederation deals with the adaptive aspects of businesses, the core aspect is the definition of the actual possibilities of a business defined in its diagnoses. Therefore we recommend that you access the book on “The Unicist Standard for Ontological Business Diagnostics” at the Unicist Library:

Unicist Approach: The Power of Simplicity

Nature, as a paradigmatic complex adaptive system, is organized by objects. The Unicist Approach is based on emulating nature to manage businesses as adaptive systems.

The Unicist Approach established a new starting point to deal with the adaptive aspects of businesses to organize their expansion. It allowed doing what was not possible before.

At an operational level, this approach is materialized in the use of the Object Driven Organization which employs Business Objects to accelerate business processes and save energy. These objects are designed based on the knowledge of the ontogenetic maps of their functions and on the use of the Unicist Standard to design business processes and objects.

Object driven marketing, object driven strategy, object driven management, object driven continuous improvement, object driven negotiation and object driven leadership are paradigmatic examples of the object driven organization.
