Complexity, Management and the Dynamics of Change by Elizabeth McMillan

Book Description

The insights of complexity science can allow today's managers to embrace the challenges and uncertainty of the twenty-first century, and successfully oversee organizational change and development. Elizabeth McMillan's book brings these ideas into perspective by: * outlining the historical relationship between science and organizations * reviewing current perspectives on organizational change and best practice * citing real-life examples of the use of complexity science ideas * discussing issues which may arise when using ideas from complexity. Written in an accessible style to bridge the gap from scientific theory to commercial applicability, this text shows how organizations can become more effective, democratic and sustainable through complexity science.
