Understanding organizational congruence: formal model and simulation framework.

By M.V. Dignum and F.P.M. Dignum


Despite a large number of studies, the effect of organizational\ud structure on the performance and the individual cognition\ud of its members is still not well understood. Our research\ud aims at developing tools and formalisms to model organizations\ud and evaluate their performance under different circumstances.\ud Organizational effectiveness depends on many factors,\ud including excellence, effective planning and capability\ud to understand and match context requirements. Different organizational\ud structures are clearly better matched to certain\ud problems and context requirements than others, but methods\ud to determine which structure better fits the requirements and\ud goals of a group are non-existent. We propose a combination\ud of agent-based formal models and agent-base simulation that\ud supports the analysis of the congruence of different organizational\ud structures to different problems and requirements
