Product description

From the Back Cover

Using a narrative approach unique to organizational studies, Czarniawska employs literary devices to uncover the hidden workings of organizations. She shows how the interpretive description of organizational worlds works as a distinct genre of social analysis, and her investigations ultimately disclose the paradoxical nature of organizational life: we follow routine in order to change, and decentralize in order to control. By confronting such paradoxes, we bring crisis to existing institutions and enable them to change.

About the Author

Barbara Czarniawska holds the Chair in Management at the Gothenburg Research Institute, School of Economics and Commercial Law, Gothenburg University.
