Atanu Mondal, R. R. K. Sharma, and Niraj Kumar Vishvakarma
Abstract— This paper relates the organizational strategy to Multi Agent System typologies. Multi Agent System is a collection of intelligent agents and have ability to perform more complex tasks which are out of individual capability. We use the typology of Miles and Snow et al. (1978) and Porter (1980) for organizational strategies. These are primarily cost leader and differentiation strategies. The organizations following cost leader strategy adopt a Multi Agent System which is more centralized in decision making whereas organizations with differentiator strategy adopt Multi Agent System which is decentralized and have dynamic decision making capability, loose coupling and service reusability.

Index Terms— Multi agent system, organization strategies, cost leader, differentiators.
