Through theorizing, contextualised in the haute cuisine industry, we demonstrate that chefs' practices, which we collected from the literature, can help depicting 'prototypical' characters that chefs adopt when organizing and leading for creativity. Each character is a metaphor symbolizing a constellation of organizational constraints on entrepreneurship, play and creativity. In other words, our characters signify different ways of how the entrepreneurial space in which creativity and play happens is constrained and provide vignettes for researchers to explore actions in context and to look for evoking stories of organizational creativity. conference presentation pdf

    Accepted on Jan 8 2017 to the 12th Organization Studies Workshop, Crete, Greece, May 2017 Abstract. Does occupational success and performance affect creativity in organizations that deal with food preparation, and if so how?  We base our study in the haute cuisine industry that values creativity and on in-depth interviews with Michelin-starred chefs in Europe, which we supplement with content analysis of media coverage and interpretation of archival performance data. Research indicates that chefs in haute cuisine view creativity as key to their success (Fauchart & Von Hippel; 2006; Hadida, 2015; Nicolini et al., 2003); our preliminary analysis further proposes that the chefs’ success also affects their creativity. We focus on Michelin-starred chefs’ creative processes: individual and original innovations pervade these high-end, fine-dining organizations that feature the finest-quality products and service, and require the chefs’ tacit and explicit knowledge to adapt and to survive. In contrast, other restaurant and food-service segments may use centralized R&D, pre-made products, and standardized menus across organizations.

Accepted Feb 14 2017 to the EGOS 2017 to the Copenhagen. Sub-theme 42: Anticipation: Models, Technology and Knowledge in the Making of Organizational Futures, for EGOS 2017 in Copenhagen. ABSTRACT Abstract Our theory is that competing anticipatory future strategies have come into an unbalanced dialectical relationship that has prompted a defunding of humanities, and the professoriate is in its death throes. We develop ‘antenarrative’ dialectic is contributing theory of ‘anticipatory knowledge’. Antenarrative precedes full-blown narrative and counternarrative, and living story webs of experience. The dialectic of antenarratives for the ‘good society’ and antenarratives extending the gap between rich and poor, actually constitute anticipatory knowledge. This has implications for the dialectical transformation of ‘knowledge society’ into ‘knowledge economy’, happening around the world. Specifically ‘knowledge society’ a longer-term vision of ‘social good’ of public education, technology, wages, health-care, and housing is giving way to ‘knowledge economy’ of short-term ‘consumer good’, defunding public universities, and wealth concentration scenarios. In the U.S. the knowledge economy has its new leader in the Trump election, and all the climate denier appointees. We review the implications of the knowledge society to knowledge economy transition in the areas of climate change, which in the U.S. has degenerated for ‘science’ to a debate. What we contribute a way to resist TrumpLand with counter-acts of ‘dialectical theater.’ Three kinds of theater are reviewed: Aristotelian, Hegelian, and Marxist (including Boal and Brecht). Each is a quite different dialectical model. Click here for submitted paper.

Abstract The notion ‘good’ capitalist-organization raises fundamental questions to theorists of organization emotion. Are these ideal types (good & bad organization) or an archetype, perhaps a fantasy? We explore two pre-capitalist organizations, ‘Shamanic Foundation,’ and ‘Shamanic Drumming Circle, both are pre-modern organization surviving here and now, and are dialectic to Western capitalism. How is this opposition constructed in relation to ‘emotional processes’?  For us, it helps deal with capitalism emotion, and a Heideggerian attunement. We are attuned to Earth differently in contrast to shamanic practices in contrast to Western capitalism.  The ways of knowing, ontological attunement, and the way of Being-in-the-world are decidedly different, and generate quite different outcome.

Interrogating the Contradictions and Tensions in Organizational Ethics, for EGOS 2017. In this paper, we take a storytelling approach to understanding the differences between “being good” and “looking good.” Overall, we see that starting from a different point or different world-view, as with indigenous ways-of-knowing, yields a very different perspective on what is “good” and what is “bad.” Looking good, as a concept, assumes that there is a dualism between being and looking, between what is and what appears to be. We see this as a sort of false dualism, based on a static world-view (Cajete 2000 and 2015) and petrified narrative forms (Czarniawska, 2004). A similar false dualism, from an indigenous perspective, is the self-vs-other dualism (Cordova 2007). We conclude with some recommendations for reducing the gap between “being good” and “looking good.”Click here for PDF.

Submitted to British Academy of Management Conference 2017, Tack 22 Strategy as Practice. Abstract: The M&A process research field is in need of rejuvenation; this paper contributes by highlighting the 'blind spots' in M&A 'process' research. To a large extent, research done on M&A has utilised a monologic approach where the author has had the final say and findings are presented as 'dead' stuff. The very term process means 'flow' flux, aliveness. We argue that the field is in need of a dialogic and more ethical approach to M&A process research, one where other voices are heard and where temporality takes precedence over end states. Furthermore, we argue that there is need for an embodied approach to M&A process research which cancels out the separation between body and mind. The most primordial kind of knowing is the one grounded in our actions and not in our cognition. Taking action on possibilities is not rooted in a conscious move where we analyse and take cognizance of the situation (Heidegger 1962); instead actions are already part of the situation as being-in-the-world. Temporality within the M&A process is captured by exploring the M&A process of an EMNC (Emerging Multinational Corporations) during the acquisition of a developed country firm. A dialogic, embodied approach to M&A process research utilising a restorying antenarrative approach is key to unlocking aliveness and temporality which are much needed to invigorate M&A ‘process’ research.  Click here for PDF.
