The complexity of the international system, which can be explained by the high number of variables which interact
and influence each other, determines a context in which security becomes an objective more difficult to
attain. Thus, the organizations responsible with maintaining security are placed under the sign of
constant adaptation and reform. Formally referring to this ability of managing the outward complexity
generated by the security environment as being ,,organizational intelligence", the present paper focuses
on analyzing the process through which intelligence and military organizations learn to adapt.
The first part of the paper explains the concepts of complexity and organizational intelligence,
identifying the core elements that need to be addressed when discussing about institutional
transformation and adaptive response. The conclusions indicate that increasing the level of
organizational intelligence and the capabilities of spontaneous adaptation on the long term implies the
development of an innovative teaching methodology. The evidence gathered from theoretical research
indicates that the technological advancements provide a formal apparatus for dealing with complex
systems and using technology within the educational processes has the potential of enhancing the
efficiency and competitiveness of the organization.
The second part of the paper focuses on the sustained efforts made by the intelligence and military
organizations from Romania and abroad to build technology-based models for learning. Subsequently,
the paper proposes an innovative model for training future intelligence practitioners, advancing the idea
of using virtual reality software that replicates, through modeling and simulation, real events and
situations, thus helping trainees to contextualize their learning experience.
