Summary: The increase in uncertainty, changeability and complexity of organisational environment stimulates and opens new possibilities of organisational evolution. (a) Following that, the first problem is how to establish factors of organisation model adaptation according to homomorphological model of his organisational environment or how to menage its evolution according to evolution of environment. The solution is in following: as alternative for hyerarchic type of organising, the stratification (sequence of generallities) of tasks should be accepted. This rule of network shows itself in evolution continuity of Żorganic® type of informations communication as the primary type of people's organisation. ŻMechanically® understood organisation takes only a short time in organisational history, that in order to reduce the environment complexity reduced its structure to Żorganisation without people®. This comprehension prepared industrial revolution, loosing its significance with informational stage. (b) The second basic problem is as follows: the establishment and menaging of factors making possible and stimulating selfcreating evolution of organisation. Because network system is open to informations (especially to qualitative ones) the relative instability of the system appears. With greater adaptability to environment the selfrenewal of organisation is stimulated and with it an evolution proceeding from internal sources. This process is explained by noogenesis trends, especially by theory of unstable systems and by theory of deterministic chaos. The successful organisation is today appearingas continuous stabilisation of deductive programmatic strategy (birocratic organisation) and inductive strategy of selfrenewal by alignment to the task of actual adhocratic birocracy.

Research goals: Determination of the industrial organisation model agreeing with the needs of information system in the complex, uncertain and unstable environment. Because of that it is necessary: (a) cross limitation of the discipline manifesting in narrow instrumental explanation of the network organisation and concept of Żmanagement of changes®, and the exclusivity of Żrational® access to programic strategies, (b) to show that the development of the science about the organisation is the part of the entire noogenesis, interdependent regions of social sciences, natural sciences, and their technical application. As the general frame two access to evolution were used. 1991/1992 the point was the active and pasive organisation's adaptation to evolution of its environment. 1992/1994 the point was on determination of intrinsic evolution factors that make possible and stimulate widespread of sources of inovative contributions te its renewal. To these the accesses to evolution, structurallistic access to to programmatic strategies of renewal and access to cultural and sociopsychological understanding of organisation as the system of human activities, from that the strategy of renewal by alignment to the task, results. It was necessary to demonstrate how the organisation binds them: the continuous process of Żselfbalancing® between the quoted oposites. 1994/1995 the determination of features of information system proceeding from determinants confirmed at research stages before. Results: Scientific interdiciplinary synthesis of basic evolution trends of ancient knowledge contributed to the science about the organisation and menaging the organiosation. The new is the application of the research results to operationalisation goal functions at conditions of chaotic surroundings, strategy and renewal tactics of organisation. For our country it has the special significance because of transition to market economics.
