our understanding of the universe is being radically altered by the "new science" - the revolutionary discoveries in quantum physics, chaos theory, and molecular biology that are overturning the models of science that have dominated for centuries. Now Margaret Wheatley shows how the new science provides equally powerful insights for transforming how we organize work, people, and life. Written in an inviting style that makes the new science accessible to non-scientists, this pioneering book offers: A mind-opening exploration of how the new science can change the ways we understand, design, lead, and manage organisations. An easy-to-read, single-source summary of a wide range of new science discoveries. New light on issues that trouble people in organisations most: order and change, autonomy and control, structure and flexibility, planning and innovation.
