Abstract

Poses the question of how to manage disorder, upheaval, revolution, transformation and chaos. When creativity and specialized work practices are involved, there is persuasive evidence for managers to stay out of the way. Such advice sounds like a paradoxical injunction, probably because it is: manage by not managing! Trapped “inside” this paradox, the distinctions between control and power become crucial.
