This article is concerned with an attempt to provide a conceptual definition of organisational plasticity together with the means to operationalise it. Broadly speaking, this is the ability to implement or to divest change through a fluid adaptation that connects together the micro (behavioural) and macro (strategic) aspects of organisational life. To achieve these goals, the article presents an experiment in community modelling using the innovative PhiloLab technique. Through open discussions on how to create an agent-based simulation model, we could identify some of the characteristics of organisational plasticity and start structuring some of the parameters for the computational simulation.
