Brief description The project draws attention to unforseen effects arising from IT, and suggests ways of incorporating these effects into the system, rather than ignoring them or applying more of the same disordering order. Disorder cannot always be cured by better or stricter management, as disorder is intertwined together with modes of ordering and their interaction with natural or social orders. The project gives a framework to help organisations implement IT systems to allow people to participate productively in government, administration or the workplace without resenting computer systems or feeling ignored or sidetracked. Changing the ways we look at order and chaos will help Australian leaders deal with a chaotically appearing world situation.
