Teoria kompleksowości wyrosła w naukach przyrodniczych, ale jest wykorzystywana w wielu innych. Ponieważ środowisko biznesowe charakteryzuje się niepewnością i nieprzewidywalnością, to kompleksowe podejście stało się niezwykle przydatne w naukach o zarządzaniu, gdzie jest szeroko wykorzystywane. W artykule autor koncentruje się na omówieniu relacji pomiędzy teorią kompleksowości, efektami jej oddziaływania na postrzeganie problemów dotyczących strategii, a możliwościami wyboru jakie mają do dyspozycji menedżerowie. (abstrakt oryginalny)
EN
Complexity theory emerged in the natural sciences, but is applied in many other areas. Since the business environment is characterized by uncertainty and unpredictability, this comprehensive approach became extremely useful in the sciences of management, where is widely utilized. In this article the author concentrates on discussing the relationship between complexity theory, the effects of its impact on the perception of problems concerning the strategies, and the choices available to managers.
