Abstract

This paper will present at a conceptual level the parallels that appear between organisational systems and non-linear dynamic systems in nature. If these parallels can be modelled in an effective manner it would appear possible to provide a predictive formulation of organisations at the statistical level. Given that it is impossible to provide a deterministic prediction this would be a significant development.
