The healthcare field is growing rapidly. Most of our healthcare programs issues come from our facilities and patients. We must continue to educate our managers on how to best manage these programs. As the years have gone by, organizations have been pushed to produce a better system that’s more productive and effective. There have been theories called complexity science and Postmodern. Complexity science is the “ study of complex systems and the phenomena of complexity and emergence to which they give rise” (Johnson, 2009, p.64).
