Abstract

The purpose of this study is two-fold. First, a validation study on Construct-TM is conducted to show that modeling the actual and cognitive knowledge networks of a group can produce agent interactions within the model that correlate significantly with the communication network obtained from empirical data. Second, empirically grounded theory is produced by combining empirical data with simulation experiments run on empirically validated models.
