Today, the lessons of complexity science are reverberating through the corridors of American corporations. For health care leaders, it's a strange new world that holds tremendous promise for the future of the industry.

But revolutions can be disorienting. Complexity theory introduces new vocabulary, new concepts and new ways of thinking about ourselves, our work and our world. Intimidated? Don't be. Let Edgeware be your companion as you embark on your journey of learning in this wonrous and challenging landscape.

This book is the first book to address complexity science in health care. It represents a revolutionary new way for health care leaders to think about how they motivate their employees, work with physicians, manage unmanageably complex tasks and plan for an uncertain future. But it's not for health care workers only - this book is useful to anyone interested in how complexity science is changing not only business management in this country, but also how many disciplines of science relate to one another. --- from the publisher
