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

11 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 1,264 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
The dark side : critical cases on the downside of business by Fernanda Sauerbronn( )

27 editions published between 2009 and 2018 in English and held by 1,204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This third collection of outstanding contributions from the Critical Management Studies (CMS) Division of the Academy of Management (AOM) continues to challenge business practice in ways not tackled by other more typical business case studies.There is a critical need for business educators to expose students and managers to the multifaceted phenomena of doing business in the twenty-first century; to support critical, reflective moral development; and to reflect and understand the complexities of organizational life. Is the system broken? Is there need for more systemic change? The cases explore a number of critical issues at some of the largest industries and companies in the world, including wealth creation and human rights in mining, the CSR approaches at Coca-Cola, the palm oil industry, and the supply chain at Apple Inc. Online Teaching Notes to accompany each chapter are available on request with the purchase of the book."--Provided by publisher
The dark side. critical cases on the downside of business by Pauline Fatien Diochon( )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and held by 1,060 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This second collection of outstanding shortlisted contributions from the Critical Management Studies (CMS) Interest Group of the Academy of Management (AoM) "Dark Side" case-writing competition continues to go where other business case studies fear to tread. There are very many case studies of business best practice when engaging with social, environmental and ethical issues. But when educators look for resources to illustrate to students the more typical examples of bad - let alone scandalous - practices of some firms, the cupboard is almost entirely bare. And yet there is a critical need for business educators to expose students and managers to such issues to understand the different multifaceted phenomena of our late capitalist era; to support critical, reflective moral development; and to reflect and understand the complexities of organizational life. To argue that such cases deal with the bad apples in an otherwise functioning system misses the point. Whether focusing on the phone-hacking scandals at national newspapers, the influence of big pharma companies on clinical trials, the Bhopal tragedy or the use of child labour in the garment industry, the problems discussed are of major importance and in many cases have been demonstrated to be common practice for particular companies. Good news they are not, but all are stimulating and present students with dilemmas and decisions to make in a myriad of ways. Each of these 14 selected cases from 2009 - 2012 has been thoroughly documented, peer-reviewed and edited. They cover four continents (Asia, the Americas, Europe, and Oceania) and both business and public organizations. The industries covered range from extractive industries, the energy industry, consumer products, pulp and paper, movies, media, municipal affairs, academia, banking, and the drug industry. The book is split into three sections: "Community and Environment" "Human Rights and Business" and "Ethics and Policy."

Encyclopedia of case study research by Albert J Mills( Book )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Case study methodology has a relatively long history within the sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Dating back to medical research in the early 1930s and the advent of the case history, case study research was initially viewed as useful for assisting researchers in making valid inferences from events outside the lab in ways yet consistent with the rigorous methodology of laboratory science. As such, it gained in importance as a research strategy for identifying rich sources of data, developing into a technique that combines both qualitative and quantitative research. Although initially rooted within a sciences approach, the case study gained even wider popularity within the social sciences and has been found to be especially valuable in such practice-oriented fields as education, management, public administration, and the human services. Despite this long history and widespread use, case study research has received perhaps the least attention among the various methodologies in the social scientist's research arsenal. Only a few texts deal directly with it as a central subject, and no encyclopedic reference provides a thorough overview of design and methods in case study research as guidance for students, researchers, and professionals trying to incorporate case studies into a rigorous research project or program. This work is intended to be that authoritative resource
Gendering organizational analysis( Book )

17 editions published between 1992 and 1997 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What impact do gender issues have on organizational structure and performance? Why should gender matter in organizational settings? And, how can we better understand organizations through a recognition of women's roles within them? In Gendering Organizational Analysis, the editors approach these questions from a variety of perspectives--structural and post-structural, social, psychological, interactionist, radical, and post-modernist." "Contributors examine the core issue of how race and ethnicity are intertwined with gender in organizational settings and outline the concrete differences this issue makes in male-dominated work settings. They propose that numerous errors have been made in interpreting organizational operations because traditional approaches to organizational theory are ethnic- and gender-blind. Book jacket."--Jacket
Anti-history : theorizing the past, history, and historiography in management and organization studies by Gabrielle Durepos( )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book sets out to answer the call for the historic turn in organization studies through the development of an alternative methodology for history, one that we call ANTi-History. In responding to that call, this book contributes generally to the broad critique of the ahistorical nature of management and organization theory, but more specifically it sets out to address the need for more historicized research and in particular, alternative ways of writing and conceptualizing history. The application and theoretical development of ANTi-History is explored through the performance of a series of histories of Pan American Airways --

Sex, strategy, and the stratosphere : airlines and the gendering of organizational culture by Albert J Mills( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book bridges a crucial gap in the literature on gender and organizational culture by providing an historical account of how discriminatory practices develop, are maintained but also change over time. Drawing on in-depth interviews and extensive archival material, the author presents an historical account of the way specific discriminatory practices developed and changed over the life of three airline companies--British Airways, Air Canada, and Pan American Airways. The book covers the period 1919 to 1991 and is organized around key periods in the hiring and treatment of female employees but the focus is on gender in the broadest sense of the word (looking at the social construction of male and female sexuality; heterosexuality and homosexuality). Gender is explored through analysis of organizational symbolism, workplace practices and organizational structuring."--Jacket
The Oxford handbook of diversity in organizations by Regine Bendl( Book )

14 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last decades diversity and its management has become a feature of modern and postmodern organizations. Different practices have spread around the globe focusing on the organizing and management of inclusion and exclusion of persons and identities based on different genders, sexual orientations, racial and ethnic backgrounds, ages, and (dis)abilities as well as religious beliefs. However, although increasingly recognized as important, the discourses of diversity are multifaceted and not without controversy. Furthermore, diversity management practices have the potential to reproduce both inclusion and exclusion. The book presents the foundations of organizing and managing diversities, offers multidisciplinary, intersectional and critical analyses on key issues, and opens up fresh perspectives in order to advance the diversity debate. It also inspires new debates on diversity by encouraging scholars to broaden their research agendas and assists students and scholars to increase their understanding of the field and its current discussions. The contributors are a team of leading diversity scholars from all over the world
