Books Info:

The Sage Handbook of Complexity and Management free pdf "The SAGE Handbook of Complexity and Management" is the first substantive scholarly work to provide a map of the state of art research in the growing field emerging at the intersection of complexity science and management studies. Edited and written by internationally respected scholars from management and related disciplines, the handbook will be the definitive reference source for understanding the implications of complexity science for management research and practice. Part One: Foundations - introduces complexity science and its implications for the foundations of scientific knowledge, including management knowledge. Part Two: Applications - presents the numerous ways in which complexity science models and tools, as well as complexity thinking, are being applied to management and organizational phenomena and the insights gained as a result. Part Three: Interfaces - highlights how complexity science is transforming various non-management fields and, in so doing, creating exciting interfaces for bridging between management and related disciplines.
