    • 4 Pages

    For a CAS to operate most effectively it must operate in a space where creativity is not stifled by an over exercised level of control yet the system is not allowed to destructure and descend into chaos (Aydinoglu, 2010; Kim & Mackey, 2014; Marchi et al., 2014; Wang et al., 2015).
