Reprogramming the Software that Runs on Organizations: Social Agents as Knowledge-based Computational

Stephen B. Regoczei

Examining computational models of organizational theories is an exercise in crosscultural mediation. To thrive in the organizational domain of discourse, we need both worlds. It is not an either/or decision: we need to consider both cogniting agents and computational automata. We need both physical symbol systems and physical grounded systems. We need Rodney Brooks’s ants with culture, knowledge, and a social conscience. Organizations whose software is not functioning as it should, may have to be reprogrammed.
