Summary

Bestselling author and renowned speaker Margaret Wheatley returns with an expanded version of her classic international bestseller Leadership and the New Science. It is possible to find stability and confidence within this new setting of chaos, and uncertainty. It is just a matter of appropriately recreating our lives and work. Leadership and the New Science will show how this can be done. As a new edition to this classic text, Wheatley shows how examples of non-linear networks and organisations are flourishing in the modern world. By explaining how numerous companies that use self- organising dynamics (such as E-bay and various search engines) are all prospering Wheatley reinforces the implications of her prodigal work and proves the increasing necessity of employing these principles.
