Rethinking a Timely Response of Human Resources to Global Signals: A Case of Organizational Reflexes
Keywords:Reflexes, Human Resource, Organizational Response, Global Environment, ; Reflexes Model
The general idea of this paper is to present a model that could explain which characteristics of the human reflex arc are inherited by the system of an organization’s human resources when they respond to a signal incoming from the global environment. The possibility of inheritance in an organization is discussed in the theories associated with Sociobiology, Biological view in Strategic Management, Reductionism, Microfoundations, and the advanced experience of inheriting neural activity that can be found in Experimental Neuropsychology. Similarity and consolidation of differences incoming from these theories allowed for the theoretical development of a Reflexes model of an organization’s human resources response to the signals from the global environment. The analysis of organizational response to the signals incoming from the global environment and its reaction to the system’s activity have shown that an organization operates very similarly to the human reflex arc. This insight allowed recognizing the human nervous system’s structure as a constituent in an organization’s decision-making system. In this paper, the model of the biological nature of the organization behavior is presented. It explains how an organization forms its reflexive competitive response to the signals incoming from the global environment.
