Description: Robert Axelrod is one of the world's leading experts on game theory and cooperation. Together with Michael Cohen he now reveals what makes a complex group of individuals into a productive team. Harnessing Complexity will be indispensable to anyone who wants better ways of thinking about how people and organizations can adapt effectively in the information age. The authors' paradigm of "bottom up" management -- the Complex Adaptive System -- is fast becoming a tenet of twenty-first-century science and management.

Axelrod and Cohen use many fascinating real-world examples to illustrate their model of complexity, but their book is more than a manual for success in Silicon Valley. Managers in any business, not-for-profit organization, or the public sector, can go step by step through the processes of variation, interaction, and selection that are at the heart of every Complex Adaptive System -- whether it is the ecology of a rain forest, an innovative banking system in the villages of Bangladesh, or the frenetic but efficient world of Wall Street trading. Their simple, paradigm-shifting model of how people work together will change forever how we think about getting things done in a group.
