The study of complex adaptive systems which explains the constant flux of living systems is arousing much interest as a paradigm and model for studying organisational behaviour and associated disciplines. A new order of reality emerges as a result of the constant interaction and coevolution of the elements of the system as well as their interaction with the system itself. The space of complexity is that state which the system occupies and which lies between order and chaos. One major impact on organisations in applying the concepts of complexity theory is the way in which leadership is seen and the need for change.
