    1. Review - the Companion has been reviewed in the August edition of Choice magazine. This is what the reviewer had to say about the book:

      “For all its seriousness and density, this volume is not without a subversive sense of mirth, skewering management fads and fashion and modern consultants in one selection while also acknowledging the role of reverence in the workplace and the emergence of that space as an arena for spiritual meaning-making. Contributors to this expansive work examine organizational change as a phenomenon through multiple lenses, ranging from Kurt Lewin to feminist theory to an exploration of the professionals whose inner lives would be impacted by said change. The late cultural anthropologist Victor Turner (1964) is smiling down from heaven at the notion of liminality in organizations being discussed in this volume. For this reviewer, who cut her theoretical teeth on the works of editors Boje (New Mexico State Univ.) and Burnes and Hassard (both, Univ. of Manchester, UK), this compilation serves as an academic groupie's feast for the mind and soul. Summing Up: Highly recommended.”

    • Jacket Cover Comments:
    • "The brothers James would be delighted with Storytelling: James, because of the weight given to the narrative, and Henry, because of the central place of pragmatist theory in this new David Boje’s book. Both would be happy to see the two united within a field unknown to them, that is, organization theory, and enlightened by placing the pragmatic storytelling in a new era. The contemporary readers, organisational theoreticians and practitioners alike, will be enriched by its broad historical perspective and rich imagination of its author." - Barbara Czarniawska (Sweden)
    • "“David Boje’s storytelling imagination burns with the fierce energy of a volcano generating more insights in a few pages than others display in whole volumes. Whether revisiting St George and the dragon or having dinner with Zygmunt Bauman, Boje delights, provokes, subverts and resurrects. His latest book is a must for every true lover of story, narrative and antenarrative!” - Yiannis Gabriel (UK).
    • On August 27 2014 (Wednesday, Boje (Management Department) will conduct a Teaching Academy session on ‘Teaching With Storytelling.’ The session is 3:30 to 5PM and has 25 signed up, thus far. It will be held in room 50, Milton Hall, and will be videotaped.

  20. Organizational Development and Change Theory: Managing Fractal Organizing Processes(2016)
    by Tonya Henderson (Author),David M. Boje (Author) This book offers a fresh perspective on organizational development and change theory and practice. Building on their recent work in quantum storytelling theory and complexity theory, Henderson and Boje consider the implications of fractal patterns in human behavior with a view toward ethics in organization development for the modern world. Building on Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari’s (1987) ontology of multiple moving and intersecting fractal processes, the authors offer readers an understanding of how managing and organizing can be adapted to cope with the turbulence and complexity of different organizational situations and environments. They advocate a sustainable, co-creative brand of agency and introduce appropriate, simple tools to support organizational development practitioners. This book offers theory and research methods to management and organization scholars, along with praxis advice to practicing managers.

The authors connect leader-member-exchange theory with emotional contagion to explain how emotions may be “restoried” or changed to help the individual to manage emotional stress at work. The “restorying” concept was developed by Rosile and Boje previously, as a storytelling model of individual and organizational change. This chapter extends the application of restorying as a change process.

Language and Communication at Work: Discourse, Narrativity, and Organizing, (Vol. 4). UK: Oxford University Press. Abstract: The purpose of this chapter is to bring the reader from the present state of storytelling research to the cutting edge of process theory in storytelling. Most importantly, this brings to the surface quantum storytelling. We do this by outlining a three part model of the quantum storytelling process: Empiric Stories, Epistemic Narratives, and Ontological Living Stories; each connected to one-another through the antenarrative process. If these concepts are novel do not worry, we will define them as we go through. We further develop the ontological by delving in to eleven Ds that are manifestations of the ontological. This is a contribution both in terms of advancing narrative analysis and in elucidating the processual dimensions of narrative and storytelling research, thus adding to the conversation surrounding process organization studies.Click here for pre-press pdf. see chart PDF Draft - December 16 2012.

An antenarrative has been widely studied as the beforeness of narrative coherence, and the many possible alternative bets on the future beyond just those of the narrative plot. Recently, the antenarrative concepts of beneath, between, and becoming have been suggested as working within the narrative and counternarrative dynamic. Our contribution lies in developing an understanding of the subterranean ‘fractal’ patterns between antenarratives out of which narratives and counternarratives interplay is affected. We develop a fractal analytic theory of and methods for understanding this dynamic interplay in its cross-cultural sociality. Fractals are iterating patterns that occur across different scalabilities, such as from micro to macro. The two cases we develop are firstly the cross-cultural aspects of a merger, and secondly, the cross-cultural dynamics of homeless and home-full in American society. The culture of homelessness and its cross-cultural dynamics has not been studied previously from a counternarrative, fractal, or antenarrative perspectives."

Dec 1 2-16Accepted for Publication in  Hans Jansen (ed.) ‘Post Formalism, Pedagogy Lives: as inspired by Joe Kincheloe’.Publisher Peter Lang. Abstract: Joe Lyons Kincheloe (1950-2008) turned critical pedagogy form ‘social construction’ to ‘critical constructivism,’ to ‘post-formalism,’ to ‘critical postmodern theory,’ and finally to ‘critical ontology.’ He co-founded the Paulo and Nita Freire International Project for Critical Pedagogy at McGill University. The purpose of this chapter is to not just explicate the important transitions from social construction to critical transitions, but to contribute a pragmatist-storytelling reading and extension of his work to a critique of contemporary McUniversity. Kincheloe’s (2007: 898) last line of his seminal essay in the Praeger Handbook of Education and Psychology states, “It will be fascinating to watch where a critical ontology can take us in the coming years.”  I will assert that ‘critical ontology’ is one of Kincheloe’s unfinished projects for understanding and changing McUniversity.  Is it possible to break free of McUniversity? I will argue that without a critical pedagogy and rigorous pragmatic-storytelling approach, McUniversity will continue to spread and intensify its erosion of faculty and student academic freedom, ending in the complete state and corporate-controlled conformance to conservative and fundamentalist ideological agendas.  See pdf pre-press version.

Abstract Leadership theory has encountered several paradigms, some emphasizing modernist rationality until ulterior postmodernist approach focused on cultural and discursive dimensions. The 20th century modernist paradigm favored rationality: once the theory of leader was invented, the narrative roots of leadership were forgotten. The purpose of this paper is to develop a theory of storytelling we are calling 'storiosis', which resonates with Aristotelian storytelling tradition – a source of several ulterior postmodernist and linguistic approaches. Storiosis is the activity of interpreting the storytelling by people in organizations; it is about the production, exchange, interpretation, and understanding of shifts in meanings in context of multiple situations. We have developed this theory by using empirical data collected from a large high-tech organization. Click here for pdf

Risky Deleuzian Double Spiral-Antenarratives and Sensemaking of Academic Capitalism Draft 1 June 2017; Revised19 October 2017 Due to Gephart, Miller, and Helgesson’s (Eds.) Routledge Companion to Risk, Crisis and Emergency Management. This chapter focuses on a Deleuzian theory of double spirals, extending it to changes of public university sensemaking in times of crisis.  I add an antenarrative theory understanding of Deleuzian ‘semiotic’ spiral systems. Specifically, risky double spiral-‘antenarratives’ are in play in schools of business around the world, as public universities are being deterritorialized and reterritorialized in academic reorganization schemes, including using business process reengineering to institute academic capitalism in so-called ‘knowledge economies’ under conditions of defunding by the State. Double-spiralling antenarratives enact between localized living stories webs and long-lived organization-narratives (or petrified & formalized narratives & counternarratives) that mix in unanticipated ways that call forth monsters from the deep, out of the abyss of nothingness, of common sense and nonsense, becoming phantasms. My contribution is to apply Deleuzian sense to sensemaking, to theorize ‘double-spiral-antenarrative’ in relation to prospective sensemaking processes as phantasms arise from the depths to crack the surface of sense-nonsense. Double spiralling, back-and-forth, between future and past, presents organizational strategic shapes and pathways and rhizomatic movements of academic capitalism, riskier and more absurd nonsense, than ever before. As autoethnographer, I am complicit, and my own paranoia is an axis of both sense and nonsense I participate in: playing the publishing game in rank journals, doing outcome assessments for AACSB reaccreditation, and so forth, that I believe don’t help research or pedagogy.

(accepted, 2017).What would John Dewey say about today’s Critical Thinking, Critical Theory, and Moral Reasoning?November 22, 2017 submission, accepted December 2017 to Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Business and Management. In this chapter I propose to examine Dewey’s own words to show how ‘critical thinking skills’ focus today is a misinterpretation of his ideas for over a century. For example, King and Kitchener (1994: 93), following Basseches (1989: 55), argue that the formal operations of critical thinking are suitable to “closed-system” problems” where as problems that are more complex with uncertain solutions are amenable to dialectical ‘open-system’ thinking because of interactive and transformative relationships.
