Our concern in this book is with the behavior of complex organizations in turbulent environments. The current state of knowledge about such organizations can be divided into two parts. One comprises practical technology which offers prescriptions on how organizations should behave. The other part consists of theoretical insights which describe why and how organizations do behave.
