Title: Modelling Organisational Evolution and Change - a Complex Systems Modelling Perspective
Authors: Strathern, M.
Supervisors: Allen, Peter M.
Issue Date: May-2008
Abstract: The cumulative output of these papers emphasise that modelling organisational evolution and change from a complex systems perspective makes a significant contribution to organisational studies and brings new insight and understandings both to theory and practice. It is also true that the studies and modelling presented in these papers has pushed forward the boundaries of complex systems science, again both in theory and practice. The papers have made new findings and understandings of the processes, drivers and outcomes of the evolution of social systems and organisations through the development of new evolutionary models and frameworks that contribute both to organisational and complexity sciences. They have through a number of innovations based in complexity science addressed questions in organisational science concerning the importance of knowledge and learning, together with questions about the evolution and survival of organisations and industries. These innovations have played back into and developed complexity science.
