Abstract

The tools of polyhedral dynamics and dynamic programming are combined through the medium of cross-impact analysis to attack problems of organizational structure. It is argued that the standard cross-impact approaches to such problems are deficient in that they ignore the true multi-dimensional nature of such systems, as well as providing no systematic mechanism for rational decision making. The results of the analysis are illustrated by applications to the structuring of a large scientific organization and by the analysis of a simplified version of a problem arising in the energy field.
