Chaos Theory

   

Definition: Chaos Theory is the qualitative study of unstable aperiodic behavior in deterministic nonlinear dynamical systems (Kellert).
CT regards organizations/businesses as complex, dynamic, non-linear, co-creative and far-from-equilibrium systems. Their future performance cannot be predicted by past and present events nor influenced by organizational development actions. In a state of chaos, organizations behave in ways which are simultaneously both unpredictable (chaotic) and patterned (orderly).
