The attributes and influencers that have allowed of the Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory (NREL) to exist and thrive for over five decades are described in this chapter. The chapter has two primary goals: (1) record lessons learned so other institutions wanting to establish or reinvigorate research organizations can glean ideas to help them avoid some of the pitfalls that will inevitably arise in their development, and (2) inform scientists, young and older, that when doing research using the systems ecology paradigm they do not work in organizational isolation. They stand on the shoulders of those who came before them and they depend on those around them to hold them up. Measures of success needed to be competitive, gain extramural funding support, and thrive are within organizational scientific leadership; teamwork; collaborative research; organizational pride; institutional and external influencer support; administrative functions sharing; and within-institution détente. A narrative by an organizational/industrial psychologist, who over a span of more than 25 years consulted with NREL staff on matters ranging from strategic planning and organizational management to interpersonal conflicts is presented. For developing organizations and existing organizations needing reinvigoration, ignoring his observations and insights about organizational behavior will be done at their own peril.
Social simulation focuses on processes to provide some forms of historical perspectives in explaining social phenomena. This chapter presents three representative examples of cognitive social simulation. It looks into a few representative examples of the kind of social simulation that takes cognition of individual agents into consideration seriously. Game-theoretical interaction is an excellent domain for researching multiagent interactions. The chapter discusses types, issues, and directions of cognitive social simulation and looks into some possible dimensions for categorizing cognitive social simulation. A variety of modeling works has been done on group and/or organizational dynamics on the basis of cognitive models. By combining cognitive models and social simulation models, cognitive social simulation is poised to address issues of the interaction of cognition and sociality, in addition to advancing the state of the art in understanding cognitive and social processes.
