Organizing around intelligence: the new paradigm Yick, Liang Thow - 2nd ed. - New Jersey World Scientific 2009 - xx, 326 p.

Organizing Around Intelligence (2nd Edition)" introduces a new mindset in leading, managing and structuring human organizations in the 21st Century. This paradigm shift is vital as humankind enters the intelligence era (the core of the knowledge economy). Focusing on nurturing highly intelligent human organizations (iCAS), the intelligent organization theory introduced in the book recounts the revelation and significance of intelligence management that concentrates on the human thinking systems and the org mind. In addition to the basic concepts of CAS and the complex adaptive dynamics, several mind-stimulating concepts/models in the new perspective such as the integrated deliberate and emergent strategy, general information theory, 3C-OK interdependency framework, intelligent person model, paper dialogue and the intelligence leadership theory are also discussed. Understanding these intelligence-centric frameworks/models provides a better strategy for leading and managing highly intelligent human organizations and creates a more sustainable intelligence advantage.
