Abstract [en]

This chapter makes the case for a processual approach to understanding ethical change leadership in order to develop a more fine-grained understanding of how leadership matters. It starts with a vignette taken from current empirical studies on digitalization, leadership, and organizing. This vignette is utilthere isized as an illustration of the theoretical argument made. The argument is presented in three steps. First, the vignette is reread and some critical questions as posed. Second, it delves deeper into the perspective that leadership may be understood as a process, and what this means for understanding leadership for change. Third, a processual conceptualization of ethics that is not centered on individuals, but focused on what is produced, re-produced, and not-produced in the doing of leadership for organizational change, is presented. This leads to the introduction of the concept of care, and propose the idea of care-ful co-directing change.

Abstract [en]

In this chapter, we build on the concept of information literacy when exploring sensitive information in workplaces. Drawing on an empirical study of project work in a high-security organization, we find that when information is sensitive and not readily available to everyone, information literacy is only made possible because of how organizational members work collectively to make do with the sings and cues they are able and allowed to disclose to each other. In these cases, the group can only achieve information literacy together through what we call hinting

Abstract [en]

High hazard organizations are often praised for their ability to remain stable and reliable. In this paper, we draw on a longitudinal case study from 2019 to 2023 from a high hazard organization and its project work to examine how such an organization reacted to the COVID 19 pandemic. As we show, an organization prone to avoid the use of new technologies and to favor on-site work can experience a seemingly significant change while its actors do not perceive such change as significantly different. We argue that an important consideration is not whether change has happened but whether it is significantly different in light of core aspects of organizational practices, such as their teleological structure and core concerns. Indeed, a high hazard organization might thus change meeting and communicative practices while remaining the same in aspects that matter more – leading to paradoxical narratives of change and non-change to manifest simultaneously.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to explore how gamification may be used for project stakeholder engagement. Design/methodology/approach: The paper presents the results of a systematic literature review of extant research concerning the gamification of projects. Based on this, an agenda for future studies is outlined. Findings: Extant research on the gamification of projects is scarce and scattered among various disciplines, but the engineering fields dominate. The research performed does indicate that gamification may be used for involving stakeholders in projects, primarily by promoting learning, but also by engaging them, motivating action and solving problems. Research limitations/implications: In several cases, extant research display poor quality in research design and a lack in cross-disciplinary perspectives, which means that more research is needed. The users’ perspective is often lacking. Furthermore, the ideas gamification might be “hidden” within other technologies. Practical implications: The findings of this research may assist project management practitioners in the endeavor of adopting gamification principles to better involve stakeholders. Originality/value: The study fills a gap in summarizing the research on how gamification may be used to promote project stakeholder engagement. Based on this, it proposes a research agenda for future research on the use of gamification to promote project stakeholder engagement.

Abstract [en]

In this paper, we share with the reader our individual and collective experience of a reading circle organised during the pandemic, at a time of social distancing. The collective reading allowed ‘us’ to become-with other humans, non-humans, and more-than-humans with the materiality of different bodies. The reading circle allowed individual vulnerability to be shared in a process of becoming-together a multiple ‘Author’ who authored a ‘Composition’. We thus propose to the reader a Composition, in which we experiment with an embodied process of writing, where a drawing and words are mingled in-between poesy and prose. In their being intertwined, reading- and writing-together enabled a different ‘academicity’, emerging as an alternative to an individualistic experience of the neo-liberal Academia.

Abstract [en]

In the post-digital era we are currently experiencing, digital technologies are becoming so ubiquitous that we have begun to take them for granted in our lives—at home as well as at work. The argument of this chapter is that this technological transformation is, in fact, a social revolution, and that this urges us to re-think what we mean with ‘the social’. The chapter starts by teasing out what makes the current technological transformation a social revolution. Then we unpack what the contemporary technological development does to the social. In so doing, we outline two existential concerns: the separation of humans and machines, and the proliferation of relationships to many others. Because of these reconfigurations, we argue, sociality needs to be reconceptualized in a way that also should be considered by those interested in communication. We end the chapter by elaborating on this.

Abstract [en]

This study focuses on how ideas of ‘digitalization’ are discursively constructed in the Swedish steel industry. Using a discursive psychology approach, we identify seven interpretative repertoires in the discursive practicing of digitalization: everyone-else, speed, competition, job loss, control, safety, and equality. Examining their functions and effects, we show that not only is digital transformation constructed as more productive, efficient, competitive, technologically advanced, safe, and equal, it also involves a shift towards the blue-collar worker being more vulnerable; a construction where she is able-minded but lonely, physically fragile, obtuse and unreliable, and a victim of a development beyond her control, forcing of her to acquire new competence. We conclude that this reproduces asymmetrical power relations between workers and companies, pushing the challenges of digital transformation to the workers. At the same time, we also see how these local discourses hold a possibility of tempering this asymmetry through the construct of togetherness of different contexts, bodies, and hierarchal levels, thus connecting steel industry workers of the future through the use of digital technology.
