People and organizations tend to approach
chaos as if it were an unruly beast—something that needs to be reined in or
avoided at all costs. But what if there’s a benefit to chaos? What if it’s
actually crucial for inspiring industry innovation?
In The Chaos Imperative, New York
Times bestselling author Ori Brafman and management consultant Judah
Pollack dramatically demonstrate how even the best and most efficient
organizations—from Fortune 500 companies to today’s US Army—can become more
innovative by allowing a little unstructured space and “contained chaos” into
their planning and decision-making.
Through their consulting work, they realized that while structure
and hierarchy are essential both in large corporations and small groups, too
much of either can stifle creativity.
Weaving together stories and case studies with insights from areas
as far-reaching as neuroscience, medieval history, and video gaming, Brafman
and Pollack reveal how creating pockets of chaos within organizations can
inspire the creative leaps that lead to new growth.
