Mindful. Edgy. Fun.

This is a book unlike most others. It is incredibly to the point. Visualized and fully colored. Practically theoretic. Inspiring. Featuring cutting-edge insights. And enormously entertaining.


The book´s first readers have thus given it a big thumbs up. Add on that a seminar format that is hugely engaging and that has been designed and tested by Niels throughout 2 years, while teaching at several universities and facilitating courses. That is Organize for Complexity.


If you are a blogger, a journalist, a social media maverick: ask for a review copy of the book.

"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
