Complex Adaptive Systems

Hi Jean - the work of Lorenz and Chaos is but a small part of the large amount of work now being undertaken by complexity science - particularly in the area of Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS)... All human organisations are CAS and are therefore impossible to 'manage' or 'control' because of the nature of cas... Command and control are old concepts left over from the industrial era... So in regard to literature I suggest you seek the very latest in the area of complexity leadership, here are a couple:
- 'Complexity and the Nexus of Leadership: Leveraging Nonlinear Science to Create Ecologies of Innovation' by J. Goldstein, J. K. Hazy, B. B. Lichtenstein 2010...
- 'Complex Systems Leadership Theory: New Perspectives from Complexity Science on Social and Organizational Effectiveness (Exploring Organizational Complexity', edited by J. K. Hazy, J. A. Goldstein. B. B. Lichenstein 2007...

My experience with CAS is with simulations of aqua...
