Critical narrative inquiry

by Kenneth Mølbjerg Jørgensen | 01 June 2014
Synopsis
While organisations have become central for thinking and structuring contemporary social action, existing perspectives on what they are and how to deal with them are still rooted in modern ideas about the foundations of society. The chapters in this volume take critical narrative inquiry -- inspired by post-modern or post-human approaches to organisations -- as a broad range of research and development strategies that challenge the dominant perspectives prevalent in the organisational literature. The purpose of the volume is three-fold. Firstly, a critical reading of organisations foregrounding notions of power and ethics is presented. Secondly, a new framework for understanding and analysing organisational action based on critical notions of storytelling and sustainability is unfolded. Thirdly, the framework is deployed through innovative concepts and learning methodologies for leadership, organisational, or community development. The authors engage in philosophical and theoretical reflections on the ways contemporary organisations work. They also present and analyse case studies of power, storytelling and learning in organisations. As a whole the book provides examples of what can be done to make organisations work in more appropriate ways in the future.
