Harnessing Complexity: Organizational Implications of a Scientific Frontier

Author(s): Robert Axelrod, Michael D. Cohen

Harnessing Complexity


Harnessing Complexity is indispensable to anyone who wants to better comprehend how people and organizations can adapt effectively in the information age.  This book is a step-by-step guide to understanding the processes of variation, interaction, and selection that are at work in all organizations. The authors show how to use their own paradigm of "bottom up" management, the Complex Adaptive System-whether in science, public policy, or private commerce. This simple model of how people work together will change how we think about getting things done in a group (Perseus Books).
