Notes on Organization Design from the Perspective of AI

Les Gasser

The DVMT/OSD notions of organization entail several epistemological and ontological commitments toward what elements of organization are important, and in what ways they are important. These notions of organization don’t explicitly capture, for example, notions such as social power or redefinition of meanings that are typical and important in h-man organizations (nor are they intended to). It is in these choices that richness and representational fidelity is enhanced or limited. However, the basic concepts with which the notions of "organization" are modeled and operationalized have tremendous impacts because they specifically direct the ability to reconfigure or design organizations--they dete _rmine what elements can be varied and in what ways they can vary.
