The organization will be affected by the presence of employees. The dedication of employees will decide whether organization will earn profit or not. The simulative environment is constructed in the proposed paper using Netlogo in order to analyse impact of agents within the organization. The belief revisioning is considered as a factor of altering the faith of the agents due to which agents may alter their behaviour hence impacting the growth of organization. The simulative environment also suggests the ways by which beliefs of agents are revised. The case study on market research is considered in the proposed paper.
