Open Boundaries: Creating Business Innovation through Complexity

Synopsis

In Open Boundaries, Howard Sherman and Ron Schultz bring fresh insights from the field of complexity thinking (the study of dynamic, adaptive systems) to unleash creativity and innovation throughout the organization by helping readers understand -- and even challenge -- the underlying principles, cognitive models, and rules that govern their decisions and actions. Showcasing the pioneering efforts of such organizations as diverse as Applied Biosystems and the U.S. Marine Corps, the authors illustrate the power of complexity in action -- from creating new markets to spreading emerging knowledge throughout the company.
