This paper describes a comprehensive multiagent based modeling approach for collaborative and dynamic organizational roles support. The method is a role centred one, where agents collaborate to assist human users through interaction within the same role, with other roles of the same team, as well as roles of different teams that share tasks dependencies; these agents are also dynamic within the role, they can join and/or leave the coalitions. We identify the key elements of the role model as rules, agents, and relationships. Our role model integrates both the operational functionalities and the strategic goal tasks, the former involve human individuals in the loop, whereas the later are performed by software agents to assist in monitoring, control, and adaptation of the performance in dynamic organizations.
