Extending Enterprise Modeling for Decentralized Organizations


New business models imply decentralization of organizations and subsequent change of their management and operation styles. Originally designed for classical (bureaucratic) organizations, many Enterprise Modeling (EM) methods do not explicitly address decentralization and thus require " case-based " adaptations when applied to modern organizations. In this work, we analyze various organizational taxonomies presented in the literature focusing on criteria of organization decentralization. Using two case examples, we demonstrate how the application of the For Enterprise Modeling (4EM) method, efficient for a centralized organization, becomes more challenging for a decentralized organization. We discuss how this method can be extended in order to provide an explicit support for organizational decentralization.
