In The Chaos Imperative organizational thinker and best-selling author Ori Brafman and management consultant Judah Pollack dramatically demonstrate how even the best and most efficient organizations - from Fortune 500 companies to today's US Army - can become more innovative by allowing a little unstructured space and "contained chaos" into their planning and decision-making.
Through their consulting work, they realized that while structure and hierarchy are essential both in large corporations and small groups, too much of either can stifle creativity.
Weaving together stories and case studies with insights from areas as far-reaching as neuroscience, medieval history, and video gaming, Brafman and Pollack reveal how creating pockets of chaos within organizations can inspire the creative leaps that lead to new growth.

Well researched, not necessarily surprising
This book is excellent and builds on a large number of other books that imply a method of letting go of your organization in order to gain unique and creative success. At the same time, it doesn't offer any truly surprising insight. I'd still recommend it. At 4.5 hours in length (increased by 3X narrator speed becomes far shorter) you can knock it out in an afternoon of yard work.
