Contributing authors describe how they have used this powerful researc h method to study a wide range of typical organizational problems, suc h as employee withdrawal; faking on personality tests; the pressures o f organizational change; and the formation, continuation, and dissolut ion of groups. By demonstrating processes that are not easily observa ble by traditional empirical methods, computational modeling promises to become an essential research method for revealing the dynamic effec ts of complex behaviors in organizations. This volume will show resea rchers both the advantages of using computational modeling and the bes t strategies, contexts, and methods for its use.
