The model identifies constructs that enable capturing the intrinsic characteristics of an agent system such as autonomy, intentionality, sociality, identity and boundary, or rational self- interest; an agent being an organizational actor and/or a software component. Such an approach of the concept of agent allows the analyst to have a holistic perspective integrating human and organizational aspects to gain better understanding of business system inner and outer modelling issues. The meta- model takes roots in both management theory and requirements engineering. It helps bridging the gap between enterprise and requirements models proposing an integrated framework, comprehensive and expressive to both managers and software (requirements) engineers.
