9780465005505: Harnessing Complexity

Harnessing Complexity will be indispensable to anyone who wants to better comprehend how people and organizations can adapt effectively in the information age. This book is a step-by-step guide to understanding the processes of variation, interaction, and selection that are at work in all organizations. The authors show how to use their own paradigm of "bottom up" management, the Complex Adaptive System-whether in science, public policy, or private commerce. This simple model of how people work together will change forever how we think about getting things done in a group."Harnessing Complexity distills the managerial essence of current research on complexity....A very valuable contribution to the emerging theory of competition and competitive advantage."-C.K. Prahalad, University of Michigan, coauthor of Competing for the Future"A brilliant exposition that demystifies both the theory and use of Complex Adaptive Systems."-John Seely Brown, Xerox Corporation and Palo Alto Research Center

From the Inside Flap:

Advance praise for Harnessing Complexity:

Harnessing Complexity distills the managerial essence of current research in complexity. Any manager confronted with disruptive change will find that Axelrod and Cohen have made a very valuable contribution to the emerging theory of competition and competitive advantage.

--C. K. Prahalad, University of Michigan, coauthor of Competing for the Future

A brilliant exposition that demystifies both the theory and use of complex adaptive systems.

--John Seely Brown, Chief Scientist, Xerox Corporation, and Director, Palo Alto Research Center

Insightful and refreshingly honest, Axelrod and Cohen have created a major contribution to complexity literature.

--Ellen H. Goldberg, President, Santa Fe Institute

There has always been a fairly wide gap between theoretical work on complex adaptive systems and its application to real world problems confronting business and public policy. Harnessing Complexity builds a highly practical bridge between these worlds, drawing on the deep insights of two thinkers who were there at the beginning of the complexity revolution.

--Francis Fukuyama, author of The Great Disruption and The End of History

You can't control complex systems, but you can influence them. Harnessing Complexity shows how. It is the first book to show how to make complexity work for you.

--Hal Varian, Dean School of Information & Management Systems, University of California, Berkeley, and coauthor of Information Rules: A Strategic Guide to the Network Economy

Very very impressive! Enables readers to sense the power of the concepts. Useful for people who want an introduction to complex adaptive systems and how Axelrod and Cohen's framework might be applied.

--Dr. Bruce Abell, a managing director of the Santa Fe Center for Emergent Strategies
