Autopoiesis theory has been combined with configuration theory to better understand societal steering. In the debate on ecological consciousness and company responsiveness to environmental issues, autopoiesis theory has helped increase the awareness of communication problems and advanced possible ways to overcome these problems (Luhmann, 1992). Autopoiesis theory has also increased our understanding of how computers and their functioning are related to the evolution of human language, thought, and action (Winograd and Flores, 1987).

Universities, for example, take in students and turn out educated citizens. Indeed, complex adaptive systems like project-based companies have the capacity to create order from chaos and to generate new emergent properties in an accumulative manner (Kauffman, 1993; Holland, 1998). Such capabilities are described as self-organizing and self-structuring decentralized processes (Doz and Prahalad, 1993), self-renewal (Chakravarthy and Doz, 1992; Nonaka, 1988), and emergent internal closure (Spender, 1996a).

Complex evolving systems are characterized by ten generic principles: connectivity, interdependence, feedback emergence, co-evolution, far-from-equilibrium, historicity and time, space of possibilities, path dependence, and self-organization (Mitleton-Kelly, 2003). In general, these aspects of complexity enable the creation of new order: • Connectivity refers to interrelatedness and resulting interdependence among system elements. Complex evolving systems may create new order by changing the rules that govern interactions between system elements.
