Consequently, it is a much broader theory. The main weakness in complexity leadership theory is the paucity of empirical research on the dimensions underlying the model.
Most of the evidence for the effectiveness of the model is illustrated in computation modelling and case studies. More rigorous methodological approaches are needed to determine the full effectiveness of complexity leadership theory. The model emphasizes the importance of social interactions within organizations yet also illustrates the key role of the leader in enabling change.
Based on the empirical evidence for the body of evidence for complexity leadership theory, this CQ Dossier is assigned a Level 3 rating, Based on a 1- 5 measurement scale. A level 3 is the third highest rating for a dossier and the evidence provided on the efficacy of a construct — in this case complexity leadership theory. The theoretical framework is useful for organizations operating in a turbulent environment and so far the research has supported the central tenets of the model. However, the lower rating for this construct is due to the reliance on computational modelling and case studies to support the theory.
More empirical quantitative research is needed to support the validity of CLT. Arena, M. Complexity leadership Theory: Shifting from human capital to social capital.

And how are the two linked? The potential of complexity science in the fields of management and organization studies has been explored before, yet there is little agreement on what complexity science truly is.
Lissack and Rivkin, along with a panel of distinguished academics and executives, identify critical topics in the study of complexity science. They reveal complexity science to be a process, one seeking and understanding of the systems we inhabit, and ways of applying that understanding to the management of organizations.
