Deliberate Strategy Deconstructing Event for the Arising of the Emergent Strategy

Authors : Juan Esteban Hernandez-Betancur, Luz Alexandra Montoya-Restrepo and Ivan Montoya-Restrepo

Abstract: The objective of this study is to explain the deconstructing event in the decision-moment concept, understood from the perspective of deliberate and emergent strategies. Review of intended literature in search of contributions focused on discontinuities within the organizational context. In addition, we develop the biological metaphor of prey and predator to understand the concept from a simulation based on agents in the NetLogo Software. We assume the deconstructive event present at the decision-moment explained from the deliberate and emergent strategies is composed of variables such as origin, surprise, the agent’s perception of the situation, the triggering event and effects. The main findings of the biological metaphor simulation were that on average 34.8% of the time the origin is exogenous in 32.7% it is endogenous and in 32.5% it is simultaneous. In turn in 74.3% of cases the surprise is abrupt and in 25.7% it is gradual. It is important to go beyond the biological metaphor proposed in this study in order to be able to contrast these variables in the organizational context. This study addresses the concept of the deconstructive event present at the time of strategic decision-making, explained mainly through discontinuity in organizations using biological metaphors and agent-based simulation.
