Summary The omnipresent world of the 21st century is dominated by an unpredictable business environment that is complex, volatile, riskt; and more competitive than ever before. The very structure, hierarchy and sh;les of command-control management in traditional monolithic organizations are being constantly challenged and questioned. The pentatomic organization offers a non-conventional approach to address these challenges. The name Pentatomic is derived from the term 'penta' (means five) and 'atomic' (means indivisible composition). It originates from five different facial expressions of modern enterprises. These facial expressions are modeled using formalisms of enterprise modeling techniques as different views of the organization operating on different purposes and characteristics. The five. models, namely, Peop~e-Centri~, Molecula~, Kaizen-Lean Six Sigma, Globally Dispersed and Dzsaggregated Value Cham, are buzlt on the phzlosophy that people give life to organizations. The formation of an enterprise from people reflects the interaction of individual spheres of influence. By integrating these models, the PentatomicOrganization adds a feedback loop and expandability to traditional enterprise architectures.
