  • The closing of critique, pluralism and reflexivity: A response to Hardy and Grant and some wider reflections
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Human Relations. - : SAGE Publications. - 0018-7267. ; 66:10, s. 1353-1371
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This article is a follow-up of Alvesson and Karreman (2011a), which was in itself a follow-up of Alvesson and Karreman (2000), and a response to a critique of the former by Hardy and Grant (2012). The critique is addressed directly and the logic behind it investigated critically. The article also addresses wider concerns regarding the politics of research and publishing and the conditions of critique at the present time. The pressure and eagerness to get published lead to strong subspecialization and an inclination to build research approaches within which authors are inclined to reproduce shared assumptions and be unwelcome to critical explorations. The article points to the risk of assumption-challenging work being marginalized through the anticipation of critique leading to hostile reactions and specialized, politically motivated reviewers blocking the publication of far-reaching critique.

  • A Stupidity-Based Theory of Organizations
  • 2012
  • Ingår i: Journal of Management Studies. - : Wiley-Blackwell. - 1467-6486. ; 49:7, s. 1194-1220
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • In this paper we question the one-sided thesis that contemporary organizations rely on the mobilization of cognitive capacities. We suggest that severe restrictions on these capacities in the form of what we call functional stupidity are an equally important if under-recognized part of organizational life. Functional stupidity refers to an absence of reflexivity, a refusal to use intellectual capacities in other than myopic ways, and avoidance of justifications. We argue that functional stupidity is prevalent in contexts dominated by economy in persuasion which emphasizes image and symbolic manipulation. This gives rise to forms of stupidity management that repress or marginalize doubt and block communicative action. In turn, this structures individuals' internal conversations in ways that emphasize positive and coherent narratives and marginalize more negative or ambiguous ones. This can have productive outcomes such as providing a degree of certainty for individuals and organizations. But it can have corrosive consequences such as creating a sense of dissonance among individuals and the organization as a whole. The positive consequences can give rise to self-reinforcing stupidity. The negative consequences can spark dialogue, which may undermine functional stupidity.

  • Accomplishments in consultancy work: ambiguity and distribution of praise and blame
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Discourses of Deficit. - : Palgrave Macmillan.
  • Bokkapitel (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • This chapter addresses identity constructions in the context of consultant-client relations in consultancy work. The focus is on how consultants and client managers use the image of each other as negative mirrors of themselves, making collaboration tension-ridden and complicated. In particular we emphasize identity dynamics around the attribution of credit and blame, drawing attention to the evaluatory and moral aspects of identity constructions in ambiguous, boundary-spanning work contexts.
