Organizations are a powerful way to coordinate complex behavior in human society. Thus, human organizations can serve as a basis for better understanding and designing open multi-agent systems. Organizational models have been recently used in agent theory for modelling coordination in open systems and to ensure social order in multi-agent system applications. This work discusses several organizational features of organization-oriented multiagent system methodologies and analyzes whether they take into account human organizational designs. Moreover, several guidelines that any organization-oriented MAS methodology must take into account are proposed.
