Abstract: The mavericks of an organization are always dancing on the precipice of being fired, and yet they are very rarely fired. Maverick behavior employees do not have a traditional career path like their rule-based behavior colleagues. Rule-based behavior employees are part of a well-structured process, while their maverick behavior counterparts change the existing processes or create new ones. Due to the differences in behavior and career trajectory, they often get into conflict both with each other and with the management. This article aims to demonstrate how Artificial Intelligence can help in the modeling of maverick behavior vs. rule-based behavior. The inductive reasoning of Doctus KBS based on AI uses the principle of Ockham’s Razor to find consistent and relevant behavior patterns. This allows management to see the sources of conflict more transparently.
