'Especially big and internationally operating companies are faced with high and even increasing complexities. The managerial implications are hardly really understood and analyzed. Managers often try to deal with it by adding even further aspects and layers to the issues to be resolved instead of trying to reduce complexity in order to make targets understandable and for their people achievable. This book offers a conceptional framework and empirical experience, how leaders can deal successfully with complexities with regards to their organizations and strategic and operational decisions.' - Dr. Manfred Gentz, Chairman of the board, Zurich Financial Services, Chairman of the board, Deutsche Börse AG and President, International Chamber of Commerce of Germany (ICC)

Managing Complexity in Organizations is a lively new text written by academics from one of the world's leading business schools. Using a series of global case studies from a variety of industries, the authors outline their frameworks for understanding and managing complexity.
The book examines the role of complexity theory in organizations and the importance of flexibility in decision-making. Managing Complexity in Organizations goes on to discuss how flexibility allows for improved, quicker responses to ongoing change - a necessity in today's unpredictable business environment. The authors present four key drivers of complexity: diversity; interdependence; ambiguity; and fast flux, thereby providing the reader with an effective and thorough understanding of how businesses can successfully adapt and respond to constant change.
