Workshop: The Break-Up Of Modern Management

BM

Management has become an on-going matter of public controversy. Trust in management, for example, is now widely questioned in the wake of a number of recent crises and scandals taking place in both public organizations and private industries. Despite a widespread recognition that management entails unintended and unanticipated effects, it continues to marshal hope and belief in creating better and more rational organizations. In this workshop, these dynamics will be explored through science and technology studies (STS), actor-network theory (ANT), or critical management studies (CMS), which have all in their different ways interrogated how powers, for example, get variously attributed to management (e.g. du Gay 1994; Law 1994).

The workshop will raise questions about, how ethnography can help us break up (or break down) management and make sense of it as part of extended repertoire of materials, practices, discursivities and ideology? Therefore the workshop invites presentations that explore these kinds of break-up of management. It is particularly interested in the concurrent reassembling of organization across boundaries customarily thought to divide inside from outside, organization from environment, the social and the technical, etc.

The workshop is organised by Dr Damian O’Doherty, University of Manchester and Dr Helene Ratner, Copenhagen Business School, and is supported by the CBS Public-Private Platform.
