Fractal organization is necessitated by the inability of traditional methods to account for the chaotic systems and the inability to optimize subsections that have nonlinear relations with each other. Fractal structure, which is one of the basic characteristics of the chaotic system, is a structure that develops on its own and is important for the organization of modern organizations.
