This Wiki is intended to share and the develop the broad areas of complex systems leadership theory (CSLT) and complexity leadership theory (CLT). The wiki's members and participants use this site to explore and discuss various theoretical approaches that use complexity ideas to understand leadership. Among other things, the site is used to develop and share new research methods that are informed by complexity, including, in particular, new nonlinear methods. One important area of focus is to formulate and share worthwhile research questions. These are intended to faciliate empirical studies which will further the development of theory. All of these activities address leadership from the unique perspective of recurring themes in complexity science.

In this wiki we will explore the the aspects of complex systems that are relevant to leadership and rethink leadership theory in the context of complexity science. The ultimate goal of the complex systems leadership project is to develop research themes that come to light from this new perspective, specific research questions that can be tested and ultimately computational and empirical results that build a cumulative science of complex systems leadership.

Members and Visitors

Members are encouraged to add content or modify content that further elaborates the many aspects of complex systems theory and leadership theory. You are also encouraged to clarify language and to more fully specify definitions. In particular, expansion or clarification of the Glossary of Terms and the Annotated Bibliography would be helpful. Please note that any changes or updates are subject to review and edit by the content committee and the site facilitator. Applications for leadership consultingare beyond the scope of this wikispace.

Non member visitors are welcome to peruse the space and to share thoughts and ask any questions that come to mind.

Anyone interested in becoming members can contact the site facilitator, Jim Hazy at hazy@adelphi.edu
