A Working Common Representation of Group and Organizational Processes

Kenneth D. Mackenzie

Abstract


This article is the second in a series on the science of group and organizational processes. The earlier article made a case for seeking a common representation of group and organizational processes. This article offers a solution by providing a working definition of group and organizational processes and deriving a working representation of them.Four candidate group and organizational process representations are introduced and evaluated. The first is the MIT process dictionary, the second is knowledge engineering, the third is dynamic simulation, and the fourth is process frameworks. Each has strengths and weaknesses. At this time the process framework view of group and organizational processes has some advantages. Axioms, definitions, and proofs are used to derive the process framework and some of its properties.
