As international interchanges increase in importance, military, corporate, and humanitarian leaders urgently need to capture national and regional differences. Computational modeling promises to be a powerful tool for representing complex tasks and for testing the validity of these representations. Models may also support decision aids and serve as platforms for training. This essay discusses the need to extend current modeling approaches to better accommodate complexity and to include the variation in behavior, roles, values, and cognition that influence international interchanges.
