    Edited by Leo W.J.C. Huberts, Jeroen Maesschalck, Carole L. Jurkiewicz

  7. Moral Foundations of Management Knowledge

    Moral Foundations of Management Knowledge

    Edited by Marie-Laure Djelic, Radu Vranceanu
    This book sheds light on ‘hidden’ aspects of management theory by questioning its moral foundations: ethical and moral principles tend to become over time, deeply embedded, if not buried, in the intellectual and disciplinary subfields of management, particularly when the latter vie for scientific status. In the process, they often become invisible or indecipherable both to those who advance and diffuse knowledge as well as to those who receive, interpret and apply it. Learn More

  9. Business Ethics as Practice

    Business Ethics as Practice

    Edited by Chris Carter, Stewart R. Clegg, Martin Kornberger, Stephan Laske, Martin Messner
    This book shows that in business, moral questions are not just theoretical; they arise in practice and have to be dealt with in practice. It illustrates that ‘ethics as practice’ is an important area of study because it focuses on how ethics are enacted and embedded in everyday organizational reality. In contrast to the approaches dominating mainstream literature, the authors of this thought provoking volume focus on the tensions, paradoxes and ambiguities that underpin ethics in practice.

  10. A Grammar of Organizing

    A Grammar of Organizing

    Maria Bengtsson, Tomas Müllern, Anders Söderholm, Nils Wåhlin
    A Grammar of Organizing provides a new, innovative perspective on the organizational challenges now facing companies in complex and dynamic business situations. This book represents a much needed departure from static theories of organizations to incorporate the dynamic and ever-changing nature of today’s companies. The authors assert that management and organization theory is increasingly turning its attention to the perpetual practice of organizing and strategizing rather than just focusing on formal structures and strategies. This new paradigm is thoroughly analyzed, and the consequent management implications discussed. The book then goes on to build a much needed, coherent and fully developed theoretical framework to further expand upon this new emerging perspective. The ‘activity-community’ model is built around fundamental principles, and numerous case studies are used to illustrate and support this unique theoretical framework. Learn More

In so doing, it poses and answers leading questions such as: Which processes matter inside inter-organisational relationships and networks? What are the consequences of relations within them?

  17. The Consequences of Information

    The Consequences of Information

    Jannis Kallinikos
    This important book addresses the organizational and economic implications of the new technologies of information and communication. Jannis Kallinikos analyses the recent spectacular growth of information and the self-propelling processes through which technological information is increasingly generated out of the reshuffling and recombination of available and interoperable information sources. He argues that information is no longer simply a resource but a pervading element of socio-economic life that is crucially involved in the redefinition of a variety of organizational practices and modes of economic action.

  19. Autonomy and Regulation

    Autonomy and Regulation

    Edited by Tom Christensen, Per Laegreid
    This book focuses on regulatory reforms and the autonomization and agencification of public sector organizations across Europe, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. The central argument of the book is that regulation and agencification occur and perform in tandem. Comparative analysis on the processes, effects and implications of regulatory reform and the establishment of semi-independent agencies are undertaken, and the practice of trade-offs between political control and agency autonomy is explored. The contributors also discuss the challenges of fragmentation, coordination, ‘joined-up’ government and other government initiatives in the aftermath of the New Public Management movement and its focus on agencification. Finally, the complexity of deregulation/re-regulation, new emergent forms of regulation, control and auditing as well as reassertion of the centre are examined. Learn More

  20. The Hidden Enterprise Culture

    The Hidden Enterprise Culture

    Colin C. Williams
    Portraying how entrepreneurs often start out conducting some or all of their trade on an ‘off-the-books’ basis and how many continue to do so once they become established, this book provides the first detailed account of the vast and ubiquitous hidden enterprise culture existing in the interstices of western economies. Until now, the role of the underground economy in enterprise creation, entrepreneurship and small business development has been largely ignored despite its widespread prevalence and importance.
