Emergent Structures

Emergent structures describes structures that are unknown or unplanned prior to social interactions, but that emerge and evolve as activity unfolds. Emergent structures may be processes, content categorization, organizational networks and hidden virtual teams. These structures are used to gain a better understanding of the true nature of things to more effectively organize, manage or interact with a community, or to optimize its efforts.
