Abstract

Agent-based simulation models allow to reproduce the structure of interactions between the members of an organization, deriving organizational decision-making from individual behavior. This article explains the philosophy of agent-based models, expounds exemplary applications to crucial issues in Organization Science and discusses their validation and acceptance by the scientific community.

Keywords: Agent-Based Modelling, Networks, Validation
