Abstract:

The objectives of this paper are to i define and classify the process of strategy and structural adaptation of organizations to mission and environmental changes ii apply our modified design methodology to construct robust and adaptive organizations and iii analyze the effects of changes in mission and organizational parameters on the organizations performance. We analyze the performance of organizations using dynamic metrics, including a measure of congruence of a given organization with respect to an organization optimally matched to a mission, as well as the DM activity and task workload as a function of time. Our previously developed mission modeling and three-phase organizational design methodology allowed one to overcome the computational complexity and to synthesize an organization via an iterative solution of a sequence of smaller and well-defined optimization problems G. Levchuk et al., 2000ab. This paper extends this methodology to design robust and adaptive organizations.
