Abstract

The intelligent organization theory perceives business organizations as complex adaptive intelligent systems. Such systems have spaces of order surrounded by spaces of complexity. A structure of this nature, embedded with intelligence, blends better with the requirements of the information era. At the moment, the structure of many business organizational systems is distorted by the linear mechanistic characteristics of the industrial era. In an information-based setup, organizations must be transformed. Intelligence that is inherent in natural intelligent systems must be superimposed upon the set of economic processes. Creativity and innovation that concentrates in the spaces of complexity must be exploited. In this respect, intelligent organizations are operating as intelligent corporate beings. Such beings are able to learn, adapt, and compete. They compete and survive through evolution and emergence. An intelligent structure of this nature can best be constructed by organizing around intelligence.
