Abstract

How ‘scientific’ can business management actually be? This thought-provoking volume from two Sheffield academics argues that ‘there is real science at the heart of management science’ at least when it comes to creating order from disorder within organisations and markets. The book is aimed both at ‘scientists and engineers aspiring to business success and to business people interested in new approaches’.
