Identity politics at work : resisting gender, gendering resistance by Robyn Thomas( )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 1,272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book represents the coming together of two key debates within organization studies: theorizing on gender and ways of understanding resistance. These debates have been given renewed vigour with the 'postmodern turn' in organization studies and feminist theory. By fusing these two literatures, this book offers new theoretical and empirical insights on issues of power, subjectivity and agency."--Jacket
Making sense of organizational change by Jean Helms Mills( Book )

19 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers a unique way to understand the processes of organizational change. Rather than being structured as a 'how to' book, Making Sense of Organizational Change provides the reader with practical insights and skills for managing (or resisting) organizational change. Applying an invaluable sensemaking framework to organizational change in both a practical and accessible way, and combining the theory and practice of implementing change, this book represents an instructive and informative view on the implications of change in the business world today."--Jacket

The Routledge companion to critical management studies by Anshuman Prasad( )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couv. indique: "The scholarly field of Critical Management Studies (CMS) is in a state of flux. Against a backdrop of dramatic global shifts, CMS scholarship has lately taken a number of new and exciting directions and, at times, challenged older critical voices. Novel theoretical frameworks and diverse research interests mark the CMS field as never before. Interrogating conventional critiques of management and arguing for fresh approaches, The Routledge Companion to Critical Management Studies captures this intellectual ferment and new spirit of inquiry within CMS, and showcases the pluralistic generation of CMS scholars that has emerged in recent years. Setting the scene for a crucial period for the discipline, this insightful volume covers new ground and essential areas grouped under the following themes: * Critique and its (dis- )contents * Difference, otherness, marginality * Knowledge at the crossroads * History and discourse * Global predicaments. Drawing on the expertise of an international team of contributing scholars, The Routledge Companion to Critical Management Studies is a rich resource and the perfect reference tool for students and researchers of management and organization."

Efficiency Nova Scotia and Nova Scotia Power : stakeholder dynamics in the power sector by Annika Voltan( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This case examines stakeholder relations in the context of energy efficiency regulation in the province of Nova Scotia, Canada. In the summer of 2015, a hearing of the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board determined the budget for the next three years for Efficiency Nova Scotia (ENS), an organization tasked with administering energy efficiency programs. The organization faced serious cuts due to recent regulatory changes and the response of the province's main electricity provider, Nova Scotia Power (NSP). Both ENS and NSP have to navigate a complex set of stakeholder relationships and vested interests in order to determine the best way to advocate for their goals in the context of political and economic realities. The case exposes students to non-business perspectives that affect strategic decision-making. It also offers insight into how power dynamics can lead to the prioritization of short-term gains, potentially at the expense of long-term sustainability measures
Making sense of organisational change : a strategic use of Weick's sensemaking approach to a case study of Nova Scotia Power Inc., 1983-1999 by Jean Helms Mills( Book )

Workplace learning : a critical introduction by John Bratton( Book )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is concerned with the power relations, complexities and contradictions in the paid workplace. Workplace learning is not value-fee or politically neutral, and cannot be studied independently of the political economy of work. Workplace Learning is part of a growing body of work that offers an alternative to mainstream approaches to workplace learning, recognizing that power relations, politics and conflicts of interest all shape learning. The authors emphasize the lived experiences of working people, avoiding prescriptive accounts and uncritical Human Resource Development views."--Jacket

Images of the "other."( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This article explores the relationship between Pan American World Airways (Pan Am) and Latin America to understand the role of Western multinational corporations in the historical processes of postcoloniality--that is, the representation of the non-Western "other" to Western audiences. Informed by postcoloniality and the use of a critical hermeneutics method, we draw on 64 years of archived materials from the Pan American World Airways Collection 341, housed at the Otto Richter Library at the University of Miami, as well as numerous histories of the airline. Our findings show how Pan Am gained a powerful position, both politically and economically, which facilitated its ability to construct influential images of Latin American employees, citizens, and the idea of Latin America. Although Pan Am ceased operations in 1991, its years of dominance in South America had the capability to contribute and provide insights into our understanding of the continued postcolonial processes and the idea of (North) "Americanism." More importantly, our article demonstrates how using a postcolonial framework can assist organizational and business scholars to better understand the role that historical patterns play in organizations still today. We hope that using alternative methodologies and theories such as postcolonialism to examine contemporary management culture, we will better be able to understand how history has been "written" in an effort to lessen "Western" ideologies and include diverse epistemological perspectives
Shades of Red( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Textbooks are an important element in teaching management in higher education because of their assumed ability to disseminate key theories and debates in a seemingly objective fashion. However, a number of studies have questioned not only the scientific character of the textbook but also of management theory itself. More recent studies suggest that dominant notions of management theory in North America were shaped by the Cold War context. In this article, we examine the influence of sociopolitical context on the development of management textbooks in North America. In seeking a more nuanced approach to sociopolitical context that takes into account cross-cultural differences, we undertook a critical hermeneutic analysis on two sets of Cold War-era textbooks, one from the United States and another from Canada. We looked for important differences in how Cold War narratives are reproduced. Canadian textbooks were more likely to legitimize noncapitalist forms of organization, to allow for a more positive role for government, and to discuss communism and socialism more seriously and thoroughly. We argue that these differences are attributable to the divergent political context found in Canada during the Cold War era. The significance of this article is to recognize that discourses change geographically on a scale much smaller than anticipated
