Using Chaos Theory to Achieve a Desired Outcome

How does one start using chaos theory to achieve a desired outcome? I can think of using an attractor for defining the result and I can use a force field diagram to describe the change I want.
However, how do I then use chaos theory to map what will happen? Or, am I applying the theory wrongly?

Predictability of Chaos Theory

Pranav, good question: although chaos theory is a realistic model to describe HOW things might happen in a complex (business) environment, it is poor to predict WHAT WILL happen precisely and even more poor as a tool to achieve a specific result via some specific actions.

RE: Using the chaos theory

Applying the chaos theory is a matter of awareness. If there's a complex system and you want to apply a change for the entire system, you have to be aware that just changing the behaviour of a detail in the system, simply doesn't do the job. Let me give you an example: If every day a swarm of 10000 birds fly over your home and you want them to fly somewhere else, it won't work to control the flight of one bird. The outcome will be that your bird collides with all other birds.
