The aim of this article is to explore the interesting contributions made by Complexity Sciences to the world of business management. These ideas enable us to see business management as a complex adaptive system with emerging properties (emerging companies), far removed from the mechanical view, which is now considered anachronistic and obsolete. The article examines the main ideas of complexity science, contrasting them with management practices based on linear thinking and suggests a different way of managing companies. This leads to a description of the philosophy underlying the management model of Irizar S. Coop., because of the features it shares with those of emerging companies. Finally, using a data set compiled through survey results, the article concludes with an analysis of the key factors behind the management dynamics of the Irizar cooperative.
