Relatonic simulation - a tool for organisational improvement: About emergence of organisation with interactions and relationships as a base for change

To maintain its fitness, organisations must adapt to the outside world. But reorganisations are difficult to implement without harming the business and those who work in it. The project will investigate how a particular simulation tool can be used to show the consequences of changes.

Description of the project

To maintain its fitness, organisations must adapt to the outside world. But reorganisations are difficult to implement without harming the business and those who work in it. The project will investigate how a particular simulation tool can be used to show the consequences of changes. The project will generate knowledge on work-integrated competence flows by focusing on the relationships within organisations and to develop a tool that describes, presents and simulates the impact of organisational changes. Development of simulation tool is in collaboration with municipalities. Several computer programs, including the so-called social network analysis, where you see who have relations with whom, are used. The goal is more healthy organisational change.
