Recent discoveries in quantum physics, chaos theory, and biology have transformed the way we think of the "orderly universe." But did you know that the "New Science" can also be applied to the way we organize work, people, and our lives? Author Margaret J. Wheatley shows us how our new understanding of science and the meaning of life can lead to a powerful new view of the business world. Wheatley believes that, just as our world has become nonlinear and filled with constant transition, we must change many of our outmoded management methods. Her book examines conflicts between order and chaos, autonomy and control, structure and flexibility, and planning and innovation, inviting us to transform our way of thinking and adapt ourselves - and our companies - to the 21st century.
"Margaret Wheatley pushes our thinking about people and organizations to a new dimension." (Kenneth H. Blanchard, coauthor of
The One Minute Manager)
