Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to search for the main characteristics of intelligent organizations. Intelligence is one of those concepts that everyone has in mind, but hardly few can define or explain it. Thus, it is even more difficult to extend this concept to organizations, and to talk about organizational intelligence. This paper tries to show the new dimensions of intelligence up to the organizational level, and the new characteristics such intelligent organizations may have. Basically, intelligent organizations are the ones which developed the capability to continuously adapt to changing and unpredictable environments. They are learning organizations in which the human capital, including the individual intelligence, has been integrated into a new cognitive structure at the organization level.
