Can Chaos Theory Improve Planning?
Cutright, Marc
Planning for Higher Education, v25 n2 p18-22 Win 1996-1997
While many colleges and universities have undertaken organizational change, many also have failed to produce such change. One reason may be that the failed planning processes have been overly rational, quantitative, and linear, neglecting intuition, artfulness, and sudden social and human shifts. Chaos theory, which describes systems and turbulence in the natural world, includes principles that may help strategic planners. (MSE)
