Strategy without design : the silent efficacy of indirect action by Robert C. H Chia( Book )
25 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 367 libraries worldwide
"In business the survival and flourishing of an organisation is most often associated with the ability of its strategists to create a distinctive identity by confronting and rising above others. Yet not all organisational accomplishment can be explained with recourse to deliberate choice and purposeful design on the part of strategic actors. This book shows why. Using examples from the world of business, economics, military strategy, politics and philosophy, it argues that collective success may inadvertently emerge as a result of the everyday coping actions of a multitude of individuals, none of whom intended to contribute to any preconceived plan. A consequence of this claim is that a paradox exists in strategic interventions, one that no strategist can afford to ignore. The more directly and deliberately a strategic goal is single-mindedly sought, the more likely it is that such calculated instrumental action eventually works to undermine its own initial success"--Provided by publisher
The Oxford handbook of process philosophy and organization studies by Jenny Helin( file )
12 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 105 libraries worldwide
Process approaches to organization studies focus on flow, activities, and evolution, understanding organizations and organizing as processes in the making. They stand in contrast to positivist approaches that see organizations and phenomena as fixed, static, and measurable. Process approaches draw on a range of ideas and philosophies. The handbook examines 34 philosophers and social theorists, both those commonly linked to process thinking, such as Whitehead, Bergson and James, and those that are not as often addressed from a process perspective such as Dilthey and Tarde. Each chapter addresses the background and context of this thinker, their work (with a focus on the processual elements), and the potential contribution to organization and management research

ENTREPRENEURSHIP : a philosophical investigation by Daniel Hjorth( file )
1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"Entrepreneurship: A Philosophical Investigation is ground-breaking in the sense that it is the first attempt in the discipline at developing a philosophy of entrepreneurship. It builds on a curious sympathy between entrepreneurship and philosophy: whereas philosophy takes thinking to the limit of thought, one could imagine entrepreneurship as taking (commercial and social) action to the limit of established practice. Both are driven by an urge to create the conditions for newness to emerge by understanding the nature of current conditions; they work from within not without. Newness, which in the case of entrepreneurship is often understood as new value, is central for both philosophy and entrepreneurship; especially for a philosophy concerned with entrepreneurship. The philosophy invoked is that of ordinary language and social philosophy, interested in language, force, time, openness and potentiality. The book will not keep philosophy and entrepreneurship separate, rather it establishes a conversation with entrepreneurship research via the key concepts that have animated the establishment of entrepreneurship as a new field or discipline in business schools, policy circles (and beyond) during the last three decades. Aimed at researchers and academics in the fields of both Entrepreneurship and Philosophy, Entrepreneurship: A Philosophical Investigation illustrates the result of such rethinking in relation to the discussion of value and the creation of such through production and trade. The latter part of the books is therefore a study of value and entrepreneurial value, philosophically re-thought."--Provided by publisher
Sensemaking revisited ( file )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
We critique and extend theory on organizational sensemaking around three themes. First, we investigate sense arising non-productively and so beyond any instrumental relationship with things; second, we consider how sense is experienced through mood as well as our cognitive skills of manipulation based on standard categories, frames or narratives and third, we consider sense being governed by exposure to unknown possibility rather than retrospective assessment. We set these themes in the context of the study of Heidegger and discuss the implications of our theorization for further sensemaking research by revisiting Weick's seminal reading of Norman Maclean's book surrounding the tragic events of a 1949 forest fire at Mann Gulch, USA

Judgment and strategy by Robin Holt( Book )
1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Holt argues strategy is the process by which an organization presents itself to itself and others. To bring this about exponents of strategic inquiry attempt t gather knowledge about the conditions in which any organization is being organized: emerging markets, restless geo-political environments, networks of technological ordering, populations with differing skill sets, and the like. The upshot of such inquiry is a succession of images by which an organization attains distinction as a unity, or 'self'. Using work from literature, art, and philosophy, Holt explores what it means to present such an organizational 'self'. In strategy practice, he identifies three related forms of presentation. First comes strategy as a project of representational knowledge. Here strategists generate accurate, timely, and complex information to build successive images of the organization and its place in the world. Though pervasive and persistent, these overtly technical images remain subject to the basic skeptical challenge that things could be otherwise. In response, come the second and third forms of self presentation: the creation of visionary images, or assertions of competitive brute will. Here too come problems. With vision comes the risk of collective thoughtlessness, and with brute will a one dimensional condition of aquisitive competition. Holt suggests judgment offers another way of responding to the skeptics' challenge. Tracing a narrative through the ideas of David Hume, Immanuel Kant, Adam Smith, William Shakespeare, William Hazlitt, Hannah Arendt, Stanley Cavell, Harold Pinter, Virginia Woolf, Martha Nussbaum and others, Holt finds much might be gained from associating strategic inquiry with a form of critical or poetic spectating. It is, he argues, by having this un-homely sense of 'being besides' oneself that an organization can best present itself to itself and others
