The problem is the complexity of the organizations in which these processes are carried out. We must remember: a) the Theory on in organizations (Simon 1955); b) the (Woodward 1965); c) the Theory of Transactions (Williamson 1975); d) the Theory of Evolution (Thom 1972; Rullani 1984). All these theories suggest that the complexity of organizations coincides with the complexity of the processes. (...) Read more? Sign up for free
