Handbook of management communication( )

2 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Management communication encompasses a wide range of practices that define modern organizations. Those practices are, in many respects, constituted, formed and contextualized by the use of language. This handbook traces the theoretical modelling of these practices by contemporary research. It explores their linguistic features and performance in specific situations of value creation and in various modes. It is a companion for students and scholars of applied linguistics and organizational communication as well as management and strategy research

Thrilled by the discourse, suffering through the experience: Emotions in project-based work( )

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

In this article, we study emotional processes associated with the project management discourse. Employing a constructionist approach where emotions are experienced within an ordering discursive context, the study identifies four distinct emotional processes associated with the invocation of the project management discourse in daily work practices. From a study of theatre and opera house employees, we suggest that the project management discourse tends to normalize feelings of rigidity and weariness in project-based work, while emphasizing projects as extraordinary settings creating thrill and excitement. Moreover, we argue that this discourse is invoked in ways that lead individuals to internalize emotional states related to chaos and anxiety, while ascribing feelings of certainty and confidence to external organizational norms and procedures. The study highlights how employees construct project-based work as a promise of exciting adventures experienced under conditions of rational control, but also how the negative and suppressed aspects of project-based work are constructed as inevitable and to be endured. Through these emotional processes, the project management discourse is sustained and reinforced
Collaboration in practice a multiple case study on collaboration between small enterprises and university researchers by Petter Bertilsson Forsberg( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

University-industry collaborations (UICs) have been hailed as key for Sweden's innovativeness and economic growth. Similarly, building research and innovation policies for the promotion of collaboration between universities and industry have become a cornerstone for many other European countries. In academic literature there has been an emphasis on efficiency, facilitation, effects and values obtained in UICs. They have been widely studied, both in terms of the reasons why they are formed, their structure and the effects they create, but not much in terms of how they work on a daily basis. There is less attention in the literature to analyse or problematise how UIC work is carried out when a connection has already been formed or is repeatedly enacted. Additionally, there is also a lack of studies looking at small firms UICs. Through identifying a lack of perspective in the UIC literature this thesis builds on the recent developments in practice theory in addressing some of the gaps found. It thus analyses these collaborations from a perspective not present in the literature in pursuit of how UICs are carried out. Through four embedded case studies between small enterprises and university researchers the thesis questions some of the assumptions made in the UIC literature and policy documents. First of all, through the practice theory lens, the thesis shows how the creation of a node/linchpin, a boundary object or a broker, between university and industry is instrumental in enabling collaboration work to take place. Secondly, being able to work together successfully does not equal outcomes sought after by policy organisations. Nevertheless, a general conclusion is that there were valuable outcomes for both the companies and the researchers, confirming previous research on UICs. But, these benefits were often difficult to put into clear numbers or metrics and appeared only after a very long time. The thesis argues that policy (and associated organisations) should promote the connection between a research site/practices and a company site/practices rather than pushing for a joint practice. In such a way UICs can be valuable for both researchers and companies

Managing and Mobilizing Microdynamics to Achieve Behavioral Integration in Top Management Teams( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : While the strategic leadership literature has examined relationships between top management team characteristics and various types of outcomes, there has been relatively little research on the ways in which these teams' members dynamically interact. In an attempt to shed light on this aspect, we conducted an exploratory study of the dynamics in two top management teams. We focused on interactions between team members and on their inter-relationships during decision-making processes. Our study led us to identify five forms of microdynamics, which we labeled the constellation, the bridge, the triangle, the umbrella and the island. We present each of these microdynamics and discuss their consequences for the team's functioning and for behavioral integration, drawing on our own data, and on examples from other texts (published cases and book chapters, the popular press). Our findings show how each of these microdynamics influences the team's collective processes and how they may interact with each other to produce greater or lesser degrees of behavioral integration within the team. The bridge microdynamic emerges as particularly important in generating greater behavioral integration. Because these microdynamics can yield positive and negative consequences, the way they are managed can play a role in effectively mobilizing team diversity while avoiding counterproductive and detrimental situations

The management of benefits : opening the black box of benefits and revealing their collective production by Monique Aubry( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Questions pertaining to performance are crucial in any organizational context. Moreover, in the current economic climate marked by instability, performance, in general, has been attracting the attention of a number of scholars. Projects are no exception in this trend and their impact on organizational performance has been of major interest in management research

A Brave New Workplace: Disclosing the smart and the dark sides of the alternative office spaces by Claudia Manca( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In recent decades, several knowledge work organizations have introduced alternative workplaces (AWs) that are implemented through flexible and collaborative office models. Their rapid diffusion has been prompted by the deterministic assumption that these may influence workers' relations and behaviors in the office, in a way that is conducive to greater collaboration and adaptive flexibility. Yet, the scarce empirical fieldwork on alternative workplaces and their multidisciplinary nature limit our understanding of their actual implications for people and organizations. This thesis questions the validity of the deterministic assumption guiding the implementation, use, and design of AWs, and identifies a set of approaches that companies and managers can employ to avoid inconsistencies and negative outcomes. To do this, this thesis builds upon a collection of studies that have been designed to address four research questions. The first study identifies a framework for AWs that has been used as a cognitive model to interpret the results and draw the boundaries of the empirical fieldwork (RQ1). The framework has been employed in an exploratory analysis, aimed at a systematic overview of the barriers and enablers that companies encounter when implementing AWs (RQ2). The second study explores how AWs are experienced by individuals and groups of knowledge workers, by bringing new opportunities and challenges that cast themselves as oppositional tensions (RQ3). The third study looks at how knowledge workers interpret the AW and enact its organization, by means of spatial practices that problematize the status of its flexible and permeable boundaries (RQ4). The fourth study develops a systematic approach to identifying the spatial implications of AWs (RQ3, 4). Drawing upon these studies, the thesis posits three important contributions. First, it feeds the discussions on AWs by bringing new empirical evidence in a relatively under-researched area. Second, it advances the concept of the AW, by providing a high-level model synthesizing the different organizational areas in which implementation and discourses have taken place. This thesis advocates the need to bring together the discussions on the different aspects of the AW under the same banner, to better investigate the interactional effects between different implementation areas. Third, the thesis contributes to workplace research and sociology of space by shedding some light on the impact of the spatial reconfiguration of work activities and relations brought by AWs to people and companies. From a practical perspective, this thesis identifies some approaches that are available to companies and their managers to handle the tensions and the identity threats that arise in the new office environment
Process studies of project organizing by Viviane Sergi( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

What is a special issue? It might sound almost too obvious to ask this question. Everybody knows that a special issue is a collection of articles all connected by a single theme. The articles can shed light on a similar issue or phenomenon, they can all be rooted in the same theoretical perspective, or they can illustrate the potential of a specific research methodology, among others
