Evolution of Complex Organizations
Organizations have to keep evolving in order to survive in the dynamic business environment
that presents itself. This is due to the need for organizations to have a competitive advantage when
conducting their business. Failure to focus on business evolution, the organizations would succumb to
the effects of economic changes. Organizational complexity theories were founded following the
attempts by the various researchers to understand the behavior of complex, large systems rationally.
They believed that these organizations could not be described through employment of the normal rules
of nature. They tried to determine the ways in which the various features of the organizational structure
support each other to come up with a system as well as its outcomes and an understanding of how each
of its components keeps changing over time.
The various components of the organizations were not constrained to carrying out a particular
role; instead they carry out varied roles interchangeably. They were never let to go out of control so as
to maintain spontaneity as well as adaptability. In the modern times, organizations conduct business
faster and in nonlinear manner, that is, the effects of the business are not proportional to the causes
leading the businesses to flourish. In this regard the various experts are not in a position to determine
the organizations that will succeed or the ones that will fail. Complex organizations were meant to
consist of independent actors that interact in multiple ways and allowing for self-organization of the
components of the organization. The activities of the organization were brought about by competition
as well as cooperation of the components. Consider an organization made up of various divisions
containing departments which in turn have their own workers who find their roles within the
departments without the need for constant supervision. These components, that is, the divisions,
departments and workers are constantly in a state of change as they rearrange and revise the various
themselves based on experience that is gained from time to time. Today, most organizations do not

subscribe to this school of thought.
The complex organizations have evolved to include management and slightly more hierarchical
methodologies to run the organizations. These complex organizations are constantly adapting in order
to match the constantly dynamic business environment. There are also emerging issues which cannot
be tolerated as is the case in the traditional cases. Difficulties arise as a result of clashes in teamwork as
well as collaboration tasks due to non-performing team members, opposing business methodologies,
personality conflicts and stresses involved in job performance. There is a need for leaders who are
responsible for managing the personnel, job performance, business relationship development as well as
rewards. The organizations are changing in reaction to the various factors both within and without the
working environments. As a result, the complex organizations have evolved from their previous rigid
structures to the more dynamic complex organizations that are more adaptive. The balance required for
effective carrying out of business is maintained as a result (Comfort, 2009).

Theories of Organizations

Modern theories of organization are based on the idea that organizations are systems which
have to adapt themselves to the varied changes in the environment. They are structured and designed
processes that determine how individuals within organizations interact to achieve various goals and
objectives. Among the modern theories of organizations that exist, namely: contingency theory,
systems theory and socio-technical theory, I think the socio-technical theory of organizations is the
most valuable theory that can be employed to understand organizations today. The socio-technical
theory takes an approach in recognizing that in a complex organization, people and technology must
interact with an aim of achieving the organizational objectives.
This involves interaction between the complex infrastructure that are put in place in

organizations and the behavior of people within the organization. It is important to understand that in
this perspective, the technical aspect of the theory does not implicitly relate to technology, it can also
mean procedures and related knowledge in an organization. Socio-technical theory thus concerns joint
optimization of the varied elements of the organization; however there must be an emphasis on the
achievement of the best quality in people's lives as well as technical performance. Organizations must
design relationships between the socio and the technical elements of the organization so as to lead to
the achievement of wellbeing as well as productivity. When the social system and technical system are
jointly optimized the new technologies are easily embraced in the organizations thus meeting the
