The contributors of these 21 essays apply classical complexity science to the art of public policy making. They address the rising importance of complexity theory in leadership research, the parallel evolution of complexity within both systems and leadership, new models for the issue of emergence and their implication for leadership, an interactive perspective on complexity leadership theory, and the relation between bureaucracy theory and complexity theory. They also offer mathematical and computational modeling using such research subjects as youth organizations, emergence, leadership style, organizational behavior in decision making, as well as a very interesting essay on what management science can give back to the study of complex systems, and a set of methods and models ranging from complexity in the workplace to leadership as the promise of simplification.
