Birth of the chaordic age

Dee Hock, published by Brrett-Koehler, 1999, 350 pages

Written by the founder, president, and CEO emeritus of VISA International, this is the story of how VISA International was conceived, founded and established. It is also the life story of Dee Hock, a maverick banker who put his own wild ideas into practice to create something the likes of which the world had never seen. This text challenges the ideas and radical philosophy about the nature of the world, the role of money and organisations in the world, reinventing leadership and management, and transforming business and society.

There is much in this book that about the best way for people to work together in organisations, especially if you are moving beyond the command and control model.
