Abstract Facing the reflexive modernity, social wealth production is systematically correlated with the production of social and technical problems. Due to the complexity paradigm and contingent approach, public organizations are conflicting with a “one best way” slant. Indeed, they are understood as computing ones and so they can adapt to a changing environment. The purpose of this paper is to understand how public managers deal with contingent problem solving and so to characterize computing organization. Through a qualitative methodology, this paper sheds light on an integrative model of computing organization able to solve contingent problems, with five dimensions.
