Organisational Responsiveness Through Signs

Abstract : Organisational Semiotics is a discipline that studies signs of organisations, and how these signs aid an analysis and design of technical information systems. The responsiveness of organisations has been discussed as a key feature to adapt the organisational behaviour in turbulent environments, but there are not studies about the implication of these capabilities on Information Systems. Organisational Semiotics can be used as a good approach to understand relationships between living things and organisations in order to develop their responses to the organisation. The purpose of this paper is the proposition of a preliminary model of organisations as living systems, using the concept of organisations as information systems. This paper articulates the information interactions between the border of the system, the environment and the activities of the organisation that maintain this border by methods of organisational semiotics. The future study will focus on the implementation of the proposed framework.
