What others say about our books

“Organize for Complexity is one of the very best books I’ve read about change and how to successfully thrive within organizational life. Niels has thought deeply about organizational development.” Michael Bungay Stanier


"Organize for Complexity is the essential handbook for management in the network era. Niels has managed to distill the essential components of organizational development, leadership, and management into a single, short, clear volume that is easy to read and understand. It aligns with the principles of wirearchy and connected leadership and is a welcome addition to management thinking. At a very reasonable price, every company should just buy several copies, read them, and see how they can implement these ideas. In complexity, there are no cookie cutter solutions, but this is the best cook book to keep on hand." Harold Jarche


“Boldly, Pflaeging dissects classic management theory and in a well-humored manner offers coherent alternatives.“ 
Harvard Business Manager
