Abstract

This paper introduces a problem solving paradigm, called organizational problem solving, where multiple agents cooperatively achieve a shared goal. In this paradigm, during a distributed problem solving process, the reorganization of multiple agents is triggered when the agents observe undesired performance degradation. This reflective feedback between distributed problem solving and organization self-design characterizes organizational problem solving, and enables agents to maintain their efficiency in a dynamically changing environment. To understand the paradigm and to evaluate its various implementations, a simple research testbed called the Tower of Babel is given.
