A Passage to Organization
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, School of Business.
2005 (English)Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

How does action turn [into a] substantive and, if it does, how does it turn into action again to perdure or even change?

In this endeavor I set out to study organizing and organization by asking myself how organizing becomes a product called organization and how that product turns into the very organizing whence it once was spawned. In other words, I set out to study what I denominate the movements between organizing and organization. To that end a play is put in motion in which actors act and make representations which are subsequently interpreted poetically and rhetorically. This in order to create a stage of evidence from which the movements between organizing and organization can be derived.

The imagination put forth consists of two movements, which I dub instantiation and concatenation. These I relate to the motions embodied by metaphor and metonymy and later conflate them into one and the same movement of organizing in the wor[l]d within which materials through their play against each other are gathered to create more or less stable products. These products may be called organizations.

In a way, this is an attempt to study the makings of organization by way of a passage into it.
