Level of complexity

Level of complexity is a measure, which describes characteristics of organizational or social system. In management we can distinguish following levels of system complexity:

  • complicated system (eg. machine, computer)
  • random system (market, customer behaviour, chaotic changes in financial markets)
  • organized complexity (organizational structure, processes, principles, algorithms)
  • self-organized complexity (adaptive systems, organizational flexibility, innovation)
