A unique strength of this volume is its careful integration of systems concepts with contemporary strategic management ideas about organizational resources, capabilities, and management processes. It explains essential systems concepts and their central role in current ideas about organizational competence. Chapters apply systems concepts to: modelling practical management problems; reconceptualizing the nature of organizations and their internal processes; improving managerial sensemaking capabilities in complex environments; devising "simple rules" for reducing and managing organizational complexity. Several case studies and examples are used to illustrate key systems concepts and their application to management practice.
-- Integrates systems concepts with contemporary strategic management ideas
-- Explains essential systems concepts and their central role in current ideas about organizational competence
-- Provides management researchers developing new management theory for today's complex environments with a solid grounding in essential systems concepts
-- Includes practical insights for managers who must manage increasing complexity in their organizations today
