Structure and flexibility of project teams under turbulent environments

an application of agent-based simulation

The extent of authority and autonomy granted to project managers and their project team members significantly impacts their ability to meet the stakeholders' goals and expectations. This fact has proven particularly true in dynamic environments, where resources, requirements, and other conditions change rapidly. This paper examines the structure and flexibility of project teams working in dynamic environments. In doing so, it outlines recommendations for improving their performance, recommendations developed through computer experiments performed with an agent-based simulation, an innovative tool for organizational design that follows the computational organizational theory approach. It also details the process of conducting the computational experiments and analyzes the results.
