    Abstract

    In most real life organizations, actions usually occur irrationally among their members which modify the behaviors of the organizations. As in Occupy Wall Street (OWS), for instance, that starts in 2011, and it was ongoing over more than 600 communities since then. Social movement, as in the OWS, frequently detected to increase the network rapidly. Therefore, our attention in this paper is on social networks among agents and their effects on the organization and the others. We show a study of such a movement that we label as Spontaneous Organization (SO). We illustrate a life cycle of the SO from the formation of it until the dissolution while covering some important concepts that case such a huge viral spreading. We present a method that can be used to assign tasks to the agents inside the organization depending on their level of fitness. A simulation for a small example of the real life that mimics a spontaneous organization will be implemented using NetLogo for further validation.
