In a time of rapid change of technological possibilities and of internationalization, organizations need to experiment with these new possibilities, and to understand their potential for change and improvement. This potential for change and improvement can only be revealed by organizational thinking, thinking using existing and novel organization concepts. Organizational thinking can be stimulated and supported by formalization of existing theories, in order to analyze their range of expressiveness and logical structure (Gazendam, 1993), as well as by simulation models that show emergent organizational phenomena, especially related to interagent communication and knowledge in organizations.
