Many of the notions, which underpin the study of Information Systems (IS) and IS Management are based on systems theory. However the sciences of complexity are in many ways complementary to those of systems theory, whilst helping to enrich and deepen our understanding of the arena of discourse. This article outlines the contribution made by complexity to IS. It will define some key principles, explain how they can enrich IS thinking and offer an example to illustrate some of the principles.
