dc.description.abstract The article deals with creation of a model of biotic organization with the aim to measure the level of representation of biotic organizations in the economic environment. The model of biotic organization is created and based on a four-dimensional model. The basis of this model is to define organizations like living systems. The model of biotic organization is formed by four principles, and these are amorphous structure, leadership, shared vision and service to its own environment. The existence of individual elements of biotic organization in practice was evaluated by means of a survey of fifty-six organizations within the Czech Republic. The research was divided into four areas, namely purpose of the existence, structure, alignment, and coherence. These areas correspond to the four basic principles of biotic organization. From the data obtained, it was found out that only two of these principles, shared vision and service, are applied by more than a third of organizations. Other principles are underrepresented. The majority of the firms surveyed are not organized on the basis of the amorphous structure and do no frequently use the principle of leadership. There is only a five per cent representation of biotic organizations within the economic environment, which confirms the research hypothesis regarding a very low representation of this organizational form in the current economic environment. A low level of biotic principles representation was caused by conventional way of organizing mainly. This is based on a formal hierarchy, a pyramidal structure and traditional management that create an environment of command and control at the expense of creativity and commitment which can exist due to the biotic principle of leadership. en
