Situated and contextualised approaches to organised collective action

This research explores the singularity of an optimal management model, the “one best way”. It is about highlighting the role of context, whether national, organisational or professional. This work can be located within the field of intercultural management. But contextualisation is about more than identifying different interpretive schemas; it is also about studying the material and visual forms that give meaning and legitimacy to organised collective action: locations, bodies, spaces, and history are central subjects for investigation when it comes to contextual analysis of changes in organisations and in the workplace.
