In this groundbreaking work, Robin Rowley and Joseph Roevens expose the foundations of contemporary management theory and practice to be outdated and, in many instances, irrelevant. They show how fashionable ideas about Vision, Motivation, Leadership, Rewards and Strategy are questionable for the purpose of dealing effectively with today's chaotic global business conditions. The authors offer a fresh approach based on the principles of Chaos theory - previously thought of as an obstacle but now recognized as a vital energizer of innovation, performance and profit. The book shows readers how to shift the thinking and the performance of their organization, and introduces change efficiency.The authors replace the complexity of conventional practice with a more simple, natural method to start up and run a workable change program. Organize with Chaos will make intuitive common sense to anyone who is involved in running a business. Because it understands, welcomes and utilizes the natural chaotic dynamics of the real world, it represents an important step forward in management thinking and business development.
