As the first volume in a series of three exploring the role of myth in contemporary organizational practice, Organizational Olympians looks at myths as part and parcel of our everyday organizational lives. Myth is present in the now, even in such an everyday setting as the workplace and in such an essential activity as business management. Many uses of mythology pertain to the individual actors: heroes and heroines. Most notably they tell us about roles people play in organizations (such as loners, leaders, subordinates) but also of how different types of social actors (such as women, and people from Eastern Europe before 1989) play a key role in organizations, of how attitudes and temperaments can be made sense of mythically, and of professional ethos."@en ;
