    Organizational members as storywriters: on organizing practices of reflexivity2018In: Learning Organization, ISSN 0969-6474, E-ISSN 1758-7905, Vol. 25, no 1, p. 51-62Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to describe how organizational members became storywriters of an important process of organizational change. Writing became a practice designed to create a space, a time and a methodology with which to author the process of change and create a learning context. The written stories produced both the subjectivity of practical authors and reflexively created the con/text for their reproduction.

    Design/methodology/approach – A storywriting workshop inspired by a processual and participatory practice-based approach to learning and knowing was held in a research organization undergoing privatization. For six months, 31 organizational members, divided into two groups, participated in writing one story per week for six weeks. The written story had to refer to a fact that had occurred in the previous week, thus prompting reflection on the ongoing organizational life and giving a situated meaning to the change process.

    Findings – Storywriting is first and foremost a social practice of wayfinding, that is of knowing as one goes. Writing proved to be an effective practice that involved the authors, their narratives and the audiences in a shared experience where all these practice elements became connected and through their connection acquired agency.

    Originality/value – Narrative knowledge has been studied mainly in storytelling, while storywriting by organizational members has received less attention. This paper explores storywriting both as a situated, relational and material practice and as the process that produces narratives which can be considered for their content and their style.

    General introduction: Too-human? Inquiring in-between different disciplinary areas in managing and organizing2024In: Organization Studies and Posthumanism: Towards a More-than-Human World, Taylor and Francis , 2024, p. 1-25Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Humanity and humanism are old topics in social sciences and humanities. These notions are particularly polysemic, and paradoxically, posthumanism both does not mean a specific stance about these debates or a choice about a possible meaning.

    Shadow organizing: a metaphor to explore organizing as intra-relating2017In: Qualitative research in organization and management, ISSN 1746-5648, E-ISSN 1746-5656, Vol. 12, no 1, p. 2-17Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to conceive "organizing" as an indeterminate process taking place in the interstices of intra-acting elements, beyond visible/rational/intentional organizing. The term intra-activity refers to relationships between multiple elements (human and more-than-human) that are understood not to have clear or distinct boundaries. The paper aims at reframing organizing, as the effect of multiple intra-acting elements, by introducing the metaphor of shadow organizing. It offers examples as diverse as knowledge spillover, evidence-based medicine and improvisation, and the mafia's organizational rules. Design/methodology/approach - The frame of reference is metaphorical theorization, based on the metaphor of shadow organizing, and is explored through three metonymies: the forest and its sheltered spaces in penumbra; the shadow as a grey zone between canonical and non-canonical practices; and secret societies, hidden in the shadow. The shadow is the symbol of what is "betwixt and between." Findings - Shadow organizing focuses on the way that situated elements (people, technologies, knowledge, infrastructures, society) intra-relate and acquire agency. Whilst organizing as the effect of intentional coordination, planning, and strategizing represents a well-established theorization, shadow organizing sheds light on what happen in the interstices of intentional and structured processes. The paper identifies the dimensions of shadow organizing as performativity, liminality, and secrecy. Originality/value - The passage from elements in interaction to intra-acting relations that form elements is a challenge both for theory and methodology. To face this challenge, metaphorical thinking proves useful since it enhances scholars' imaginations and emotional participation.

    Imagine being asked to evaluate your CEO ...: Using the constructive controversy approach to teach gender and management in times of economic crisis2015In: Management Learning, ISSN 1350-5076, E-ISSN 1461-7307, Vol. 46, no 1, p. 6-23Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses the relationship between gender and management as intertwined discursive practices. Following a constructive controversial approach, we proposed to the students to complete a short story in which they have to give a feedback either to a fictitious female or to a male boss. The article has a dual aim since it offers a reflection on a teaching methodology suited to foster critical thinking in the classroom and analyzes the narratives so produced in search of what constitutes the students' idea of good management. In positioning men/women CEO within a narrative, students enact a moral order that evaluates management in society. Their narratives reveal how the economic crisis has undermined the positive image of the male manager, while femaleness is emphasized for its anti-managerial imaginary. Moreover, the idea of what constitutes good management is constructed around an idea of care for both male and female CEOs.

    Staging precariousness: The Serpica Naro catwalk during the Milan Fashion Week2015In: Culture and Organization, ISSN 1475-9551, E-ISSN 1477-2760, Vol. 21, no 2, p. 174-196Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article illustrates the Italian process of work precarisation and the collective resistance of precarious workers. It interprets them in terms of the birth of a collective identity that conducts a critique against precariousness while developing learning resources. Through discursive analysis of the Serpica Naro catwalk, organised in the area of Milan by the activists of the May Day Parade and the San Precario network, the article illustrates the process of construction of this collective identity that uses irony and playfulness to resist and denounce precarious working conditions. The purpose is to interpret the anti-precariousness movement as a process of critical urban learning that creates the viability of spaces for resistance in metropolitan contexts.

    Tracking the sociomaterial traces of affect at the crossroads of affect and practice theories2019In: Qualitative research in organization and management, ISSN 1746-5648, E-ISSN 1746-5656, Vol. 14, no 3, p. 295-316Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose Affect is relevant for organization studies mainly for its potential to reveal the intensities and forces of everyday organizational experiences that may pass unnoticed or pass in silence because they have been discarded from the orthodoxy of doing research "as usual." The paper is constructed around two questions: what does affect "do" in a situated practice, and what does the study of affect contribute to practice-based studies. This paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach The authors chose a situated practice - interviewing - focusing on the dynamic character of the intra-actions among its heterogeneous elements. What happens to us, as persons and researchers, when we put ourselves inside the practices we study? The authors tracked the sociomaterial traces left by affect in the transcript of the interviews, in the sounds of the voices, in the body of the interviewers, and in the collective memories, separating and mixing them like in a mixing console. Findings The reconstruction, in a non-representational text, of two episodes related to a work accident makes visible and communicable how affect circulates within a situated practice, and how it stiches all the practice elements together. The two episodes point to different aspects of the agency of affect: the first performs the resonance of boundaryless bodies, and the second performs the transformative power of affect in changing a situation. Originality/value The turn to affect and the turn to practice have in a common interest in the body, and together they contribute to re-opening the discussion on embodiment, embodied knowledge, and epistemic practices. Moreover, we suggest an inventive methodology for studying and writing affect in organization studies.

    Daughters taking over the family business: Their justification work within a dual regime of engagement2016In: International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship, ISSN 1756-6266, E-ISSN 1756-6274, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 28-47Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - This paper aims to explore gender and legitimacy in family business succession. Design/methodology/approach - Within the theoretical framework of French pragmatic sociology, the authors conceptualise the family business as the locus where two regimes of engagement are present, generating the co-presence of two orders of worth, namely the domestic and the industrial. Taking a processual approach to entrepreneuring, and using case studies of small enterprises in Italy, this paper explores the case of daughters taking over the family firms. Findings - The paper shows how the daughters' perceived gender inequality in the succession process is justified and how the justification work and the production of legitimacy are accomplished, shifting from one order of worth to the other. Originality/value - The value of the contribution consists in pointing to how gender inequality is reproduced and justified inside the family business. The dual regime of engagement is what justifies the reproduction of a specific gender regime within the family business. Moreover, the paper adds a "gender" perspective to French pragmatist sociology.

    Re-thinking induction in practice: profession, peer group and organization in contention2016In: Society and Business Review, ISSN 1746-5680, E-ISSN 1746-5699, Vol. 11, no 2, p. 193-209Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to develop an interpretative framework of induction as a social practice to examine the ecology of the human and non-human actors involved in the production of induction as a social effect. Design/methodology/approach - Three case studies are conducted in different types of organizations (private, public and network) to analyse the relation between the induction process and the actors that influence it. Findings - Three different models of induction are described: in a professional bureaucracy, socialization precedes selections and the key actor is the profession; in a small private organization, induction is almost exclusively managed by the peer group in the form of seduction by the profession; in a large network of organizations, induction is explicitly managed by the organization and becomes a means to transmit the organizational culture. Research limitations/implications - In the description of the empirical data, it is shown how an individual undergoes induction into the organization when he/she undergoes seduction (by the profession). Nevertheless, the models could be improved by the study of a larger sample of organizations. Originality/value - This paper shows that induction is not the effect of solely the encounter between individual and organization, because two other agents are involved in the process, namely the profession and the peer group.

    Quanto è «personal» il «Personal Health Record»? Tecnologia ed empowerment del paziente diabetico2018In: Politiche sociali, ISSN 2284-2098, Vol. 2, p. 179-200Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the role and meaning of medical information against the backdrop of new digital tools that allow for new forms of data management and sharing within the healthcare management network. The research investigates data management practices by parents of children with Type 1 diabetes as they are enabled by a Personal Health Record to become stewards of their own medical information. The underlying assumption of this and similar technologies is that they would support patient-provided collaboration and reduce the information gap between clinical encounters. Drawing on a qualitative research design, the authors analyze data management and sharing practices among patients and healthcare providers before and after the introduction of a digital logbook for diabetes management in the pediatric department of a hospital in northern Italy. The paper reveals how patients interpreted their new roles in terms of restricting access to their information, rather than facilitating its dissemination, to preserve their own competence and independent management of the information regarding their «Personal» diseases

    Caring as a collective knowledgeable doing: About concern and being concerned2016In: Management Learning, ISSN 1350-5076, E-ISSN 1461-7307, Vol. 47, no 3, p. 266-284Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Care is not an innate human capacity; rather, it is an organizational competence, a situated knowing that a group of professionals enact while attending to their everyday tasks. We propose a post-humanist practice approach to reading care as a matter of concern for those producing care and for society at large. Care is framed as a collective knowledgeable doing', it is not an object or a quality that is added to work; rather, it is caring', an ongoing sociomaterial accomplishment. Through an ethnography in a nursing home for the elderly, we describe: (a) how caring was collectively performed in keeping a common orientation, (b) how caring was inscribed in a texture of practices, and (c) how a technological change in nutrition practice mobilized ethics as practice in situated decision-making. Since natural nutrition is being increasingly replaced by artificial feeding, we describe how the collective and organizational ethic of care with tube feeding is talked about in practice, in a front-stage situation and in the back-stage one. In this process, the duality of care as a matter of concern and as the process of being concerned by caring becomes visible.

    Luigi Pareyson’s Estetica: Teoria della formatività and Its Implications for Organization Studies2017In: Academy of Management Review, ISSN 0363-7425, E-ISSN 1930-3807, Vol. 42, no 4, p. 745-755Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we illustrate some principal features of Pareyson’s philosophical aesthetics and their relevance within aesthetic organizational research and the study of social practice in organization. In his main work on aesthetics, Estetica: Teoria della formatività, written during the Fifties, the Italian philosopher proposes a personalistic existentialist hermeneutics and stresses the concreteness of the person in the social interaction with the concreteness of the Other and of the materiality of the world created and formed. Aesthetic philosophy as ‘formativeness’ focuses on flesh, incarnation, materiality of the interpreted world, doing while inventing how to do, and the practice of doing philosophy. In the essay, we underline the relationship between ‘formativeness’ and the valorization of aesthetics in the study of organizational practice that has led to the appreciation of the corporeality of personal knowledge in the process of knowing in practice. We argue that, if we want to appreciate Pareyson’s contribution to organization and management studies, we can see management as art, production processes as artistry, a work well done as a work of art, and of course art in itself. Our conclusion is that, while ‘philosophy’ constituted the link between Pareyson’s Formatività and the aesthetic discourse on organizational life, ‘practice’ constituted the link among ‘formativeness’, organizational aesthetics research and practice-based studies.

    Talking about Competence: That “Something” Which Exceeds the Speaking Subject2017In: Skillful Performance: Enacting Capabilities, Knowledge, Competence, and Expertise in Organizations / [ed] Jörgen Sandberg, Linda Rouleau, Ann Langley, and Haridimos Tsoukas, Oxford University Press, 2017Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter the theme of competence is addressed in relation to a processual approach to discursive practices. The object “competence” is constructed differently within three main discourses: entity-based, relational, and practice-based. The authors problematize how language constructs competence as a research object. What happens when we no longer believe in the language/reality binary relation? The chapter poses the question of how a more-than-representational approach changes our way of talking about competence but does not argue “against” language; rather, it invites exploration “beyond” language and beyond language in a written text, since there is always a “something” that exceeds the speaking subject. The authors propose an experimental written/visual text that invites empathy in reading and challenges the rhythm of reading with an invitation to feel the poetry of a visual language. In so doing, they want to produce the effect of troubling the static, rational, and written representation of competence.

    Readingwriting: becoming-together in a Composition2023In: Culture and Organization, ISSN 1475-9551, E-ISSN 1477-2760Article in journal (Refereed)
    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]

    The collection of papers that comprise this edited monograph addresses issues confronting universities’ attempts to integrate practice-based learning in higher education curriculum. It is through accounts and analyses of activities that the kinds and extents of this jostling of cultures within and amongst the academy, industry, government and professional bodies and other educational providers become evident. The contributions, in different ways, engage theory in practices (Price et al.2009) through appraisals of a range of issues in the recognition and implementation of practice based learning initiatives. The contributions explore the epistemologies, structures, politics, histories and rituals that both support and constrain opportunity and success in students’ experiences, and illuminating the issues, practices and factors that shape the processes and outcome of educational efforts to integrate experiences in both practice and educational settings, each of which has their own distinct cultures, practice within their communities (Gherardi 2009).

    Enacting responsible management: a practice-based perspective2020In: Research Handbook of Responsible Management / [ed] Oliver Laasch, Roy Suddaby, R. E. Freeman and Dima Jamali, Edward Elgar Publishing, 2020, p. 392-409Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter draws on post-humanist practice theory to discuss managing responsibly. This chapter does not advocate for the study of managers as individuals or collectives, nor managerial work and activities as isolates – but rather for the study of the social and material effects of their interconnections. It is argued that a normative understanding of ‘managing responsibly’ is co-constructed and is emergent within a ‘texture of practice’. Thus, the chapter proposes to assume managing responsibly as ‘care’, as a dimension of ‘doing’ responsible management in situated practices of organizing and managing. Through illustrative examples and a case study of an ecovillage cooperative organization, the chapter illustrates how a practice-based approach can unpack multiple enactments of what might constitute managing ‘responsibly’ (or not) recognizing that there may be a range of competing beneficiaries in different contexts. The chapter concludes with a call for a deeper understanding of the everyday ‘doings’ when examining managing ‘responsibly’ in organizations. A focus on situated management practices, provides insights into whether in situ practices are affording more or fewer opportunities for participating in and learning sustainable, responsible and ethical management practices. Without such understandings the chapter concludes, there is scant opportunity for addressing the kinds of changes in doing ‘responsible management’ required in an increasingly resource-fragile and worker-centric world.
