Chaos and Organizational Emergence: Towards Short Term Predictive Modeling to Navigate a Way Out of Chaos
MetadataShow full item record
Organizational emergence from chaotic events has often been described as unpredictable and random, at least when observed over the long term. Through a literature review this paper paves the path for the possible development of a forecasting model for making short term predictions during chaotic events so as to assist business practitioners in navigating their way out of chaos, thereby facilitating organizational emergence. As such, the paper builds on chaos and complexity theory, as its foundational theory, and identifies the most important factors and mechanisms cited in current literature that influence organizational emergence so as to potentially incorporate the factors in the future development of a short term forecasting model.
