Universe of transformation

Definition and concepts
It is a decomposition of the Business in separate spaces of transformation
An ecosystem realizes several operations of transformation: manufacture, define new products or services, manage the customer relationship, define and maintain an industrial tool, animate a network, etc. These transformations obey different logics, and according to cycles which are peculiar to them. Although they are connected, we can isolate them in broad outline in universes, every universe being specialized on a transformation.
The division in universe is natural, and internal boundaries in the ecosystem draw easily, on clear breaks.
Universes are interdependent. They can live their life, each at its pace, and optimize their performances, but they are not isolated from the other functions of transformation, without which the ecosystem would not survive.
Relations between universe are formalized through the exchange of goods or services, given rhythm by events: " internal boundaries " in the ecosystem so form.

  • Realization
  • Regulations
  • Product Design
  • Promotion
  • Creation of the product
  • Recruitment
  • Investment
  • Prospecting
  • Engineering

Elements of syntax
  • It is advisable to be careful as for the division of the company by "profession". Several professions can be in strong interaction, to contribute to the same functionof transformation.
  • To simplify the representation of a universe, it may be useful to the "decline" it in several "layers".
    • Universes are different in their axes as in their configurations and obey different logicss.
    • The "layers" on the contrary, share a structure of identical base, but with different "contents" and of different configurations.
  • It's better to create the founder model of the Trame Business by making at first abstraction of the transverses activities (Support, piloting, communication). Dedicated universes can serve for clarifying these functions.
Check List
  • In an ecosystem: The number of universes is less than or equal to the number of cycles.
Key questions to identify the invariants
  • What are the main partners of the ecosystem? What part of the value chains is taken into account?
  • What are the statutory constraints, of safety, sustainable development, and how do they evolve?
  • Are there several "models" of economic configuration to exercise these activities?
