Brafman and Pollack make the case for applying chaos theory to understanding organizational dynamics and exploiting the results. They argue that chaos "makes for better school systems, more innovative businesses, and a more resilient military." They examine the way that chaos can come to play in various creative processes, stressing "whitespace," looking at neurobiology and chaotic problem-solving systems. In the end, they offer five rules of chaos: avoid the seductive allure of data and measurements, remember it's called organized chaos, make whitespace productive, embrace unusual suspects, and organize serendipity.
