Category: Brief Article


This research is an exploratory investigation of self-organization in complex organizational systems. Self-organization is a process of transformation that culminates in the spontaneous structural reorganization of complex social systems. An instrumental case study methodology was employed to explore this social phenomenon in two Dallas-based organizations. A combination of archival data and interviews revealed two important observations: a) Self-organizing behavior is inherent in organization transformation; and b)the core elements of an organization, its image, mission, and values, are key factors that contribute to self-organization in organizational systems.
