Abstract [en]

This important book focuses on the role of human dignity, its protection and promotion in the context of organization and Humanistic Management. The recent phenomenon of humanism in management already has a rich body of literature and takes up many themes both theoretically, and from a practitioner perspective. Dignity and the Organization is the first book to explicitly deal with the topic of human dignity and management. The chapters address various aspects and problems from a humanistically-oriented perspective, taking up issues relevant for the contemporary management theorists and practitioners, and are concerned with organization, management and the social and cultural context. The book develops the notion of human dignity in conceptual and theoretical terms in its practical application, within the context of organizations.

Abstract [en]

The authors – two anthropologists and an organisational theorist, all organisational ethnographers – discuss their understanding and practices of organisational ethnography (OE) as a way of imagining and reflect on how similar this understanding may be for young organisational researchers and students in particular. The discussion leads to the conclusion that OE may be regarded as a methodology but that it has a much greater potential when it is reclaiming its roots: to become a mode of doing social science on the meso-level. The discussion is based on an analysis of both historical material and the contemporary learning experiences of teaching OE as more than a method to our students.

Abstract [en]

Following Agatha Christie (1942), we investigate the mysterious case of the body found in the library. A dead body of an older woman is found in the public library, well dressed, with platinum blonde hair, and completely unknown to everyone at the premises. She appears to have been strangled, though we are still waiting for the coroner's report. The police have been called, but can they be trusted to uncover the truth? Meanwhile, the unprepossessing Miss Marple, conducting her own investigation, has established beyond doubt the identity of the dead woman: it is the body of Knowledge. 

But who has killed Knowledge and why? It is clear that the culprit is one of the characters present at the murder scene, but who? Was it Monsieur Foucault, with his basilisk like panoptical gaze, revolting against her power? Could it have been Herr Nietzsche, who one drafted her into the mobile army of metaphors and no one has truly spoken with her since? Or perhaps kind Polányi úr, who is said to have been enamoured with her once? Did her tacit acceptance of social mores drive the mild-mannered professor to murder? Meanwhile, Mr Karl Popper has been observed acting quite suspiciously; did he falsify the clues while testing his hypothesis on ignorance not being the same as the absence of Knowledge? 

This paper will be written in the old school dialogical style of a SCOS from before the formatting era (b.f.e.) and presented in a theatrical fashion of that same style. No apologies will be given. Powerpoints are unlikely. A mystery will be solved though complications will abound. If references are required, please allow the aforementioned Ms Christie and Mr Guillet de Monthoux (2004) to fulfil these noble roles.

Abstract [en]

This collected volume of essays offers glimpses of the future of university education. While universities consider the spirit of theoretical exchange and intellectual pursuit to be a defining trait of their identity, this book argues that this heritage is disappearing under the influence of the short-term demands of societies and markets. Universities used to be sites of dissent, civil courage and societal conscience, but have now instead become little more than pseudo-businesses, rendering them incapable of remaining critical or independent. However, with more people going to university every year, there is a strong resistance to the notion that the university as a collegial and critical institution is dead, among academics as well as the broader public. With contributions from scholars across the world, this edited collection explores the ramifications of marketization on universities, and provides glimpses of what higher education will look like in the future. It will be of great interest to teachers and students in higher education, as well as policy makers and those interested in the current and future state of higher education.

Abstract [en]

Barbara Czarniawska and Carl Rhodes have argued that managers and entrepreneurs oĕ en learn from popular culture. ă e dominant plots off er the accepted interpretations and guide for actions, whereas alternative plots, available but not most prominent, provide schemes for possible departures from the common wisdom. In this article, we propose that not only works of đ ction serve this purpose; powerful ideas derive also from popular management books, not only in terms of explicit content but also as what we term, in homage to Lyotard, the grand plots: structures of meaning not usually seen as the overt message of this article. We present the results of our classiđ catory reading of popular management books, interpreting them in terms of the tacit notions of narrative development and cohesion, emplotted in the background. ă e contribution of this article is to show the ways in which the grand plots of popular management books are used to achieve coherence in presenting the books’ total solutions for a variety of organizational problems and contexts. What their readers learn is not so much (or not just) how to manage but how to make narrative sense of management regarded as part of wider cultural context.
