English term or phrase: Organized Chaos
It's an oxymoron. I really need this!

組織された混沌 Soshiki sareta konton
Explanation:
It may be possible to render it as simply 組織混沌 (Soshiki konton). However, since 組織 by itself can also mean "an organization," it may be misunderstood to mean "chaos of an organization," or "organizational chaos." So 組織された混沌 "chaos that is organized (=organized chaos)" should probably be used for clarity.
