Using Schemata to Model Metacognitive Social Phenomena

Jorge Louçã

This paper proposes the use of cognitive schemata to model metacognitive social phenomena, characterizing the reciprocity between micro and macro dimensions in an organization. The main idea that rationalizes this research is that explicit modeling of social cognitive constructs might improve the understanding of organizational culture and learning processes. In this sense, organizational actor’s beliefs are represented in cognitive maps, allowing the identification of social cognitive patterns, composed by values and procedures, through schemata. A schema can be used by an agent according to its interpretation of social values and the level of convergence between an organizational actor and organizational culture.
