Computational models are receiving increasing attention in the management literature. They allow modeling and analyzing the behavior of complex systems of heterogeneous interacting agents and experimenting with different interaction structures (markets, networks, organizations, etc.). As such, they are an excellent tool to study processes of aggregation of distributed action – a phenomena close to the interests of behavioral strategy. In its second instalment, this workshop will give the participants an opportunity to interact with prominent scholars in the field and to work and practice formal modeling in an interactive session. The first part of the workshop, the panel, will discuss the role of models in behavioral strategy, address the process of designing and implementing a computational model, and outline the most interesting and challenging future applications of computational models. In the interactive session, attendants will have a chance to discuss and practice formal modeling of mutual learning in organizations. We look forward to having participants who have already some experience and technical skills in programming and modelling, and participants without such experience.
