Complex adaptive systems: properties and approaches
2009 (English)Report (Other academic)
This research report is based on a draft theoretical frame of reference from the author's doctoral thesis (working title of the thesis is: "Beyond Process Management"). The research focuses on applications of process management in organizations. The result of the research indicates that the matrix, which appears with the line organization on the one hand and with the process flows on the other hand, creates a complexity in the organization that is challenging to manage. Therefore, the concepts of complex adaptive systems and the possible applications in the management of organizations have been explored. The report is based on other reviewed literature on systems and complexity recommended from other researchers and practitioners in the field.
