Overview

In introducing this first volume of a series exploring issues in managing complexity, Richardson (Institute for the Study of Coherence and Emergence) contends that no one has yet developed a reliable skill set for learning from the "noise" of complex systems. In 30 papers, multidisciplinary international contributors analyze complex organizations, characterized as open systems with nonlinear relationships, from diverse paradigms including evolutionary philosophy and enterprise self-reproduction. Applications, illustrated in case studies, include group decision support systems and a transition strategy model. Not indexed. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

The wide range of authors contributing to this book makes it an excellent introduction to the study of the field of complexity. The multiple perspectives combine to show the positive and negative aspects of different approaches and theories. In addition, the papers included here are individually referenced - which makes it a treasure trove of information for someone who is interested in this exciting field.
