Disorganization occurs in all areas of modern business; and yet, disorganization has traditionally been viewed as a negative factor in business and organization performance. However, in a dynamic 21st century environment our conventional structured, rigid responses in dealing with such messiness are not working.  
Business Plasticity Through Disorganization presents a novel approach to both academics and practitioners on how to break the shackles of rigidity and eliminate our fear of disorganization. Through a chronological discussion of the birth of the concept of 'disorganization' and its gradual evolution into 'business plasticity', the book explores ways in which embracing and leveraging messiness can help improve the way we create, innovate and run our businesses. 


Challenging existing theories and approaches to disorganization, as well as presenting new evidence from both research and practice, Herath promotes new conceptual thinking aimed at promoting flexible 'plasticity' in the modern organization to build greater functional capability globally.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This book explores the concept of disorganization in business in terms of disorganization as a solution to business and project failures, in addition to how it originates and is inevitable within business. It discusses why disorganization should be explored by management scholars and practitioners; the problems caused by an over-reliance on order and the birth of the concept of disorganization; frameworks that can be used to understand disorganization, the benefits that businesses can derive by coping with it, and why businesses should actively leverage it rather than just cope with it; implementing disorganization through goal-driven, structural, and functional disorganization, with strategies; how disorganization can be used to achieve higher levels of business plasticity and how it can be made into a sustainable business capability; and implications for the future of disorganization, the cognitive elements of disorganization, and lessons for practice. - Annotation ©2019, (protoview.com)
