What makes organization? (MakingOrganization)


 

Abstract:

The project aims to investigate the historical and contemporary ability of Organization Theory (OT) both to analyze and to intervene in the experience of organizational life.

This aim will be pursued through two mutually related strands of research:

a) an analysis of the changing relationship between organization theory as an intellectual and practical discipline and the problems besetting modern organizations

b) an historical analysis of classic, albeit largely forgotten or ignored, organization theories in order to explore their potential for helping to address contemporary organizational and societal concerns. In so doing, a key objective of the project is to revitalize Organization Theory as a practical enterprise centrally concerned with describing, analyzing and intervening in organizational life.
