Resource description

Versions: 26 May 2002; 21 May 2003; 6 January 2004; 7 October 2005 ; Two of Herbert Simon’s best-known papers are "The Architecture of Complexity" and "The Structure of Ill-Structured Problems." We discuss the neglected links between these two papers, highlighting the role of decomposition in the context of problems on which constraints have been imposed as a general approach to problem solving. We apply these Simonian ideas to organizational issues, specifically new organizational forms. Specifically, Simonian ideas allow us to develop a morphology of new organizational forms and to point to some design problems that characterize these forms.Keywords: Herbert Simon, problem-solving, new organizational forms. JEL Code: D23, D83
