Order Creation from a Systemic Perspective: Information Flows and Complexity

Part of the Markt- und Unternehmensentwicklung Markets and Organisations book series (MAU)


The previous chapter introduced order creation mechanisms of known institutional forms. It identified a need to go beyond these and found an explanation of how systemic and transactional order is created based on studying flows of information. This chapter will sketch how organizing activities can create systemic order by abstracting from the mentioned institutional forms and looking at information flows underlying them. Therefore, it, first, looks at the dimensions for describing these information flows and presents a framework, the I-Space, which links institutional forms to a particular configuration of information flows (3.1.).
