    Handbook of Longitudinal Research Methods in Organisation and Business Studies

    Edited by Mélanie E. Hassett, Eriikka Paavilainen-Mäntymäki

The lack of resources in terms of time, funding and people can pose a serious challenge to conducting longitudinal research. This book tackles many of these challenges and discusses the role of longitudinal research programmes in overcoming such obstacles. Learn More

  13. How to Conduct a Practice-based Study

    How to Conduct a Practice-based Study

    Silvia Gherardi
    The practice-based approach to the study of work and organizing has been widely adopted in recent years, yet its theoretical and methodological systematization has only just begun. Silvia Gherardi expertly provides an overview on the topics and issues addressed by practice-based studies. By means of a series of examples drawn from the best-known analyses using this approach, the book provides methodological guidance on how to conduct empirical research on practices, and how to interpret them from three perspectives: practices ‘from outside’ practices ‘from inside’, and the social effects produced by practices.

    Cyberfactories

    Barbara Czarniawska
    Have you ever wondered how organizations decide which news is important? This insightful book portrays in detail everyday work in three news agencies: Swedish TT, Italian ANSA and the worldwide Reuters.

Barbara Czarniawska reveals that technological developments lead to many unexpected consequences and complications. Learn More

  18. Redesigning Management Education and Research

    Redesigning Management Education and Research

    Edited by Stephanie Dameron, Thomas Durand
    The field of management education and research has become an industry of its own – an industry with fierce international competition in a global arena. Here, the authors argue that a series of mechanisms has led to mimicking and thus strategic convergence among business schools. The authors further argue that this has resulted in a loss of relevance and diversity of the management knowledge produced and taught in a multipolar world. They view this as counterproductive to business schools, students, firms, societies and other stakeholders, including scholars themselves. Learn More
