This is the practical idea that Wheatley suggests in her writing "Leadership and the New Science" [third edition] which has a new chapter introduction that is entitled "The Real World".
The release of the first edition of this book was first opened to the public readers in 1992. No matter, as the years pass, the book being based in science has the need to be updated; and Wheatley definitely realized this need. Hence, she released another edition updating the information she shared with her readers during the first edition. Later on, she further improved her presentation and application of scientific theories into actual organizational management needs through the release of her book's third edition which opens up a new chance of actually seeing how science applies to the real world.
Bluntly based on theories of biology, chemistry, chaos theory and quantum physics, the first and second edition were presented in a rather common placing that Wheatley herself felt the need to help her readers feel and understand the actual application of her retaliations through the use of actual or real-life examples. This then has been done through the release of the third edition.
Content and Summary
"When we are truly giving birth to a new world view, the more I realize that our culture is presently journeying through chaos. The old ways are dissolving, and the new has not yet shown itself. We must engage with each other differently as explorers and discoverers. Every moment requires we be comfortable with uncertainty; every moment requires that we stay together"

As Margaret Wheatley accepts the fact that humans today are living in a chaotic system, she keeps on encouraging everyone to face the situations with a fine understanding of the matter of chaos and use that matter to solve the issues. For example, a science theory opens up the explanation about the process of change and how it happens which could be related to human behaviour as well. It could be noticed that through using this particular theory towards understanding a certain issue in an organization, chaos could be dealt with strategically, using the different elements that contributes to the trouble to naturally find the solution needed to end the problems.
In a new world of innovation and change, Wheatley points out the need to develop as well on the part of organizational management. She notes how the old systems of management could not be used anymore to solve the problems at present since the situations before has already changed into a more complex set of issues that need a new set of solutions. How could these solutions be found: through the use and establishment of scientific problem solving.
Some might have a lesser regard of science or that of quantum physics. Simply thinking of it might seem complicated enough to explain; moreover to apply
