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 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.

The Use of the Unicist Pilot Testing Method (UPT)

The objective of the UPT is to confirm the validity of a knowledge, methodology or adaptive system. The method was designed to deal with the adaptive aspects of businesses in order to make their design reliable.

Unicist Pilot Tests are a core aspect of any market or organizational laboratories in order to design commercial or organizational processes.

Its purpose is to confirm the functionality of an adaptive system. It requires having the ontogenetic map of the system. What needs to be validated is the functionality (or credibility) zone of the system that has to be defined using its operational and fundamental knowledge.

Their first step is to develop destructive tests, which are homologous to destructive tests in the field of engineering, to define the limits of their functionality. To achieve this it is necessary to experience in homologous fields in order to find the limits of their reliability.

The second step is the development of non-destructive tests to confirm their functionality in the predefined specific field. It requires experiencing in analogous fields which requires having a sound operational knowledge in order to measure the validity of the results obtained.

The use of this method guides the Unicist Reflection methodology to manage complex adaptive systems.

The behavior of ants-colonies and Internet is homologous

An essential analogy, homology, between ants’ activity and Internet has been done at the Stanford University. This is just a confirmation of the benefits of emulating the organization of Nature.

“Here we present a feedback-based algorithm that captures the main features of data from field experiments in which the rate of returning foragers was manipulated.

The algorithm draws on our finding that the distribution of intervals between successive ants returning to the nest is a Poisson process.

We fitted the parameter that estimates the effect of each returning forager on the rate at which outgoing foragers leave the nest.

We found that correlations between observed rates of returning foragers and simulated rates of outgoing foragers, using our model, were similar to those in the data.

Our simple stochastic model shows how the regulation of ant colony foraging can operate without spatial information, describing a process at the level of individual ants that predicts the overall foraging activity of the colony.”

The Unicist Approach for Growth

Businesses, by definition, happen in the future and it has to be considered that the past and the future are not symmetric.

The unicist approach uses both fundamental and technical analytical knowledge. It deals with the future using the unicist ontology based fundamentals.

Its unicist logic allows inferring the future to diagnose, build strategies, design architectures and build business objects.

The technical analytical tools are used to operate the businesses.

It has to be considered that unicist ontology based and object driven technologies have been developed to influence the future of businesses to make growth happen.

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.

The Unicist Approach is based on Business Objects

Nature, as a paradigmatic complex adaptive system, is organized by objects. The unicist approach is an emulation of the organization of nature using object driven technologies.

The unicist organizational approach is based on emulating nature in organizations. An extremely effective organization can be developed integrating both structural aspects that sustain evolution and incidental aspects that allow dealing with conjunctures. Emulating nature implies integrating the abstract apprehension of reality with the concrete operational design.

Objects are productive units that have a concept, an added value, the necessary quality assurance and a methodology to ensure the minimum strategy. To imagine an object please consider an automatic pilot in an airplane. It can be considered a “paradigmatic” object.

Humans also use mental “pre-built” structures to approach reality. Object driven thinking is a human natural approach to reality. The human mind approaches reality using cognitive objects.

Spin-offs: The Unicist Approach as a New Starting Point

The Unicist Research Institute was a pioneer in complexity science research and became a global decentralized world-class research organization in the field of human adaptive systems.

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 Unicist Business Object which are now expanded through Corporate & Professional Spin-offs.

The purpose of a technological spin-off is to provide a world-changing solution for a market. It requires having developed an innovative unique technology.

Technological spin-offs require the participation of three agents:

1) The provider of the innovative solution

2) The marketplace builder

3) The investor

“By definition” innovations require the development of a new marketplace which needs the necessary investment to develop it until the new value adding solution is part of the establishment of a market.

When corporations develop the spin-offs the investor and the marketplace builder might be one.

Spin-offs are successful when the innovative technology solves an extreme scarcity by providing solutions that were not possible before. That is why the spin-off business is meaningful when it provides “world-changing” technologies.
