Abstract: Based on the organisational behaviour theory and complex adaptive system method, the enterprise organisation behaviours are analysed for the firm dynamic growth evolution modelling. Further, the particle swarm optimisation algorithm is introduced to individual behaviour parameters optimising, so each individual can adjust their own behaviour parameters according to their own status and the surroundings, which makes agents more intelligent and adaptive than that in the previous research. Concretely, organisation behaviours in the firm are described at first. Then the firm growth evolution model is given and the group behaviour structure is also built up. Besides, the principles and evolution processes of the model are specifically presented and the firm growth evolution model is simulated. Finally, the simulation results are analysed in greater detail. The results illustrate that applying the particle swarm optimisation to the group behaviour has a strong guiding sense to the development of the enterprise.
