    A project-based view of entrepreneurship: Towards action-orientation, seriality and collectivity2003In: New movements of entrepreneurship / [ed] C. Steyaert & D. Hjorth, Cheltenham: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2003, 1, p. 86-102Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Traditional entrepreneurship research often tends to view entrepreneurship in terms of individual actors starting enterprises, an approach which might limit further development of entrepreneurship theory. The project-based view of entrepreneurship proposed here instead focuses on the organising of entrepreneurial acts (action-orientation). Such entrepreneurial acts can be, but are not limited to, enterprise start-ups – entrepreneurship also happens in many other forms. Moreover, those acts are temporary by nature, which means that they can be analysed in terms of projects. Saying that entrepreneurial acts are temporary projects means that people can perform several entrepreneurial acts during a lifetime – in different ways and with different results (seriality). Entrepreneurial acts are also viewed as collective ones, organised by several actors in actor networks temporarily coupled together by a somewhat common mission (collectivity). From this reasoning, it also follows that empirical investigation of project-based entrepreneurship should be made with a narrative approach, understanding the entrepreneurial act as a part of the various actors’ construction of identity. With respect to every actor’s - socially constructed - view of reality we therefore can understand the social construction of the entrepreneurial act. By stressing a project-based view with a social constructionist perspective we hope to encourage pluralism and diversity in theory, practice and methodology.

    Caught in the act?: On co-construction of project work and professional identities in theatres2006Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Earlier studies point at that the notion of working in a project brings with it expectations on several aspects of the work situation, expectations that are institutionally given by project theory and practice and re-constructed by the project workers in interaction. At the same time, working by projects and re-constructing organisational and institutional norms on how projects should be, they also successively constructed an image of themselves in relation to these norms. This points at that not only are individuals reinforcing established notions on project work while working by projects – they also at the same time construct their own identities, reinforcing notions about themselves as professional, committed and structured enough to endure the hardships of project work. In other words, a project is here seen as a process of co-construction of the project form and of project worker professional identity. In this paper, we will thus analyse how people in project-based operations socially construct projects and individual identities – i.e. what happens when something is labelled a project and/or a project-based firm.

    The analysis of the interviews from two theatres indicates that projects and project-based operations are co-constructed with individual identities in several ways simultaneously,  hrough discourses that may look internally consistent but not always easy to combine with each other. Even though most producers, directors and stage managers at the two theatres are most familiar with Gantt charts, project goal structures etc, they are not actively promoting Project Management as a distinct competence of neither themselves nor the organization. What they do promote is still a modernist notion of professionalism that is closely linked to the project form of work organization. What is co-constructed is a system of inter-subjectively held beliefs linking organizational poverty, legitimacy and success to individual identification with what are highstandard artistry, organizational loyalty and self-fulfilment. The single projects become arenas and critical incidents for such co-construction, for yet another confirmation of the current development or for experimenting with other forms for theatre production project work.

    Entrepreneurship inside and outside community: On the promises and problems of deviating2004Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to contribute to a developed understanding of the phenomenon of entrepreneurship as deviating from its local cultural context. This is done through the analysis of an in-depth case study made from a social constructionist perspective. Entrepreneurial individuals and collectives define themselves - and are defined by others - in relation to general expectations on what an entrepreneur is and how he or she should behave, and we therefore claim that the entrepreneurial process is about identifying, challenging and breaking institutionalized patterns, to temporarily de-socialize from society rather than socialize into it.

    In this paper, we present an in-depth study of the Hultsfred rock festival in Sweden and how the actors behind the festival has initiated a number of entrepreneurial processes over the years. The study is based on recurrent interviews, participant observation and documentation. In the interviews with the (inter)actors in the Hultsfred organisation, a number of narrative themes on the relation between the entrepreneurial processes and the context emerged. One such theme was the image of rock music and rock culture as rebellious and different as compared to the local culture of sports. Another theme was the massive lack of local understanding for the special characteristics of the music industry, this due to the traditional industrial structure of the region. The relation between the RockCity people and their context has also been characterised by an ongoing debate on the relation between culture and commercial business (cf also Mort et al, 2003), which has also led to severe internal conflicts. It appeared that when met by scepticism on the local arena, RockCity instead focused on networking and collaboration on other arenas; regionally, nationally and internationally. Still, they all share a basic desire to make Hultsfred a better and more prosperous place to live, which represents an aim to contribute and be respected, to be seen as an important and relevant part of community development.

    Interactive entrepreneurship: Entrepreneurial processes from a social constructionist perspective2004Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper views entrepreneurship from a social constructionist perspective. The basic standpoint is thus that entrepreneurship is an inter-subjective construct produced and re-produced in everyday social interaction. To understand this interaction in practice, the entire entrepreneurial process should be inquired into – how/why entrepreneurial ideas emerge, how/why ideas are developed as legitimate, how/why interaction between actors unfold, how/why different roles develop, etc. In order to develop a theoretical understanding of entrepreneurial processes in general from this perspective, we need to (1) make in-depth studies of a limited number of processes, (2), choose processes that is intended to imply construction of newness, and (3) follow these processes and involved co-actors over time. The aim of the paper is thus to suggest concepts and theories through which an enhanced understanding of entrepreneurship in terms of interactive processes can be achieved.

     

    The empirical data of the paper is based on three in-depth case studies in Swedish independent schools and one entertainment industry organisation, the Söderbaum school, the Viktor Rydberg Gymnasium and the Hultsfred rock festival. All involved co-actors have been repeatedly interviewed, and we have also been participant observers in their daily interaction. These data have been subject to a narrative analysis where the stories – i.e. the narratives of the participants – are re-written by the researcher in order to cover relevant events, conflicts etc that convey a straightforward understanding of the entrepreneurial process.

     

    From these two cases, a number of implications for theory development can be drawn and discussed. The entrepreneurial process per se is often perceived as limited in time, whereafter continuous management of what has been created follows. Most of the decision-making throughout the process happens in informal interaction, and the interactors assume different roles in the process (i.e. the idea generator, the organizer, the public face, the diplomat, the practical guy etc), implying specialization but also learning from each other. Since many of the co-actors often work together again in different constellations on new related entrepreneurial processes, they change these roles over time. Also, social networks are used consciously in order to create long-term benefits. Money and culture are not seen as opposites – money is a tool to create freedom to do what is important and fun, i.e. create new entrepreneurial processes. Finally, there appears to exist a notion of entrepreneurial careers; by increasing age, personal interests, rebellionship and groupthink are gradually substituted by a sense of responsibility for employees, family and society, by professionalism as ideal, and by activities such as networking and mentorship.

    Interactive entrepreneurship: Studying entrepreneurship as projects, in projects2002Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While the development of mainstream entrepreneurship research has been quite successful in academic terms, the field has adopted some taken-for-granted assumptions and views hampering its further development, e.g. the polarisation between individual voluntarism and institutional determinism, the focus on single individuals, the focus on enterprise start-ups etc. Contrary to that, we propose a social constructionist epistemology in entrepreneurship research, according to which entrepreneurship is collectively organised by individuals in interaction, i.e. as projects. In this paper, two issues connected to the notion of ‘interactive entrepreneurship’ are discussed; the meaning of innovative social processes and the empirical inquiry on innovative projects. It is concluded by a discussion on how recent developments in project management can be beneficial to entrepreneurship research.

    Issues, responsibilities and identities: A distributed leadership perspective on biotechnology R&D management2011In: Creativity and Innovation Management, ISSN 0963-1690, E-ISSN 1467-8691, Vol. 20, no 3, p. 157-170Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the research reported here is to contribute to the ongoing development of R&D project leadership studies by applying a distributed leadership perspective in the analysis of a product development project in a small biotechnology venture. A distributed leadership perspective implies that leadership is studied as a process of social interaction, involving several individuals who continuously construct leadership activities together. From a case study of a bio-tech venture, we conclude that leadership work in R&D projects implies construction of issues, responsibilities and identities. That is, what people do - seen from this perspective - when performing leadership activities in this project is that they gradually move the project and the organization forward by processing issues, resolving ambiguities concerning responsibility, and develop their understandings on the identity bases involved.

    Konstruktion av entreprenörskap: Teori, praktik och interaktion2007 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna bok är ett bidrag till den pågående debatten om vad som karaktäriserar dagens entreprenörskapsforskning och om vilka framtida vägar denna forskning kan ta. I boken hävdas till att börja med att en sådan debatt kräver att entreprenörskapsforskningens grundläggande vetenskapliga utgångspunkter synliggörs och diskuteras, vilket sker alltför sällan. Liksom all annan samhällsvetenskaplig forskning bygger studier av entreprenörskap på paradigmatiska antaganden om vad entreprenörskap är, vilka typer av kunskap som bör eftersträvas, vilka forskningsmetoder som accepteras samt vilken funktion forskningen skall ha i relation till praktik och policyskapande. Bristen på diskussion kring dessa frågor har inom entreprenörskapsforskningen ofta lett till ett överdrivet individfokus, en förkärlek för normativa utsagor och kvantitativ analys, samt en syn på allt entreprenörskap som ett i grunden gott och eftersträvansvärt fenomen.

    Utifrån ett socialkonstruktionistiskt perspektiv med basen i modern organisationsteori studeras här entreprenörskap i termer av tillfälliga, kollektiva handlingsprocesser i aktörsnätverk. Baserat på djupgående kvalitativa fallstudier från två friskolor (Viktor Rydberg Gymnasium och Söderbaumska Skolan) och två verksamheter i kultursektorn (Hultsfredsfestivalen och Stockholms Improvisationsteater) identifieras nya tänkbara vägar för entreprenörskapsforskningen. Teoretiskt öppnar sig möjligheter att i högre grad använda kritisk organisationsteori för analysen av hur entreprenöriella processer skapas och hur dessa processer relateras till sin kulturella kontext. Möjligheten att se entreprenöriella proceser som projekt diskuteras utförligt, liksom kopplingen mellan entreprenörskap och ledarskap.

    Leadership work among senior faculty in Swedish universities: Reinforcing administrative control, redefining collegiality2019In: Proceedings of the 18th International Studying Leadership Conference: Putting Leadership in its Place, Bristol: University of the West of England , 2019, p. 62-64Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we analyse department-level collective leadership work processes in Swedish universities. Drawing upon a notion of leadership work as co-constructed by many organisational actors in interaction (Bolden et al, 2009; Crevani et al, 2010; Denis et al, 2012; Endres & Weibler, 2017), we show how leadership work among senior faculty increasingly:

    • Becomes concerned with administrative/regulative issues. Our respondents describe how meetings, tasks distributed to ad hoc teams, committee work etc., become increasingly time-consuming and mandatory to partake in. This leadership work also becomes increasingly focussed on receiving and handling administrative issues referred to them by central university bodies, or on the formulation and implementation of internal regulations.

    • Revolves around short-term solutions to eternal problems. Many of the structural issues in the university sector – e.g. under-funding, research-based meritocracy despite heavy teaching loads, expectations on both basic research and societal impact – are acknowledged and subject to continuous attention at department level. However, they are usually translated into short-term problems to be resolved in one or two years, resulting in simplistic ’quick fixes’ and projects whose time horizons usually tend to coincide with national budgetary periods or terms of office for senior managers. Moreover, these quick fixes and projects are rarely coordinated with each other, which from time to time results in ’project overload’ and goal conflicts.

    • Becomes concerned with systems for surveillance and control. Most handling of administrative and regulative issues tend to revolve around the perceived need to make academics report their work contents, performance and whereabouts in more detail, and to prescribe how various work tasks shall be carried out and how decision- making shall happen. Leadership work rarely deals with notions of trust, professional freedom or work satisfaction, but rather with constructing academics as in constant need for further surveillance and control.

    • Builds on shaming and blaming of individuals and groups. Following the focus on surveillance and control, the onus is always on the individual academic to live up to all sorts of expectations and adjust to new regulations and change projects. Very few, if any, are seen as delivering upon all these expectations – instead, the shaming and blaming of individual academics and groups for failing to achieve this or that tend to be part and parcel of everyday management. In the end, virtually everyone can be seen as problematic in one way or the other and in equal dire need for further regulation, surveillance and control. The social worth of successes (top-cited publications, major grants) are passing, while the burden of alleged failures linger.

    This discussion is based in a qualitative study of senior lecturers employed at business administration departments at four different Swedish universities (n=45). Most of them are involved in leadership work at their respective workplaces, either through formal roles such as head of department, director of undergraduate studies, etc., or through informal involvement in task groups, inquiries, committees and boards. The study was originally undertaken to investigate performance-based funding systems (PBFS) and their impact on academic professional identity construction processes. Leadership work appeared to be central for our understanding of these processes, in the sense that the daily practicing of PBFS’ involves construction of organisational direction, issues, spaces of action etc (Crevani, 2018).

    The consequence of the above leadership work processes is that leadership work becomes increasingly irrelevant to daily teaching and research activities and at the same time increasingly time-consuming and central for involved senior faculty. The growing centrality of this particular form of leadership work in the daily life of faculty is self-reinforcing, both due to the content of work (which constantly calls for further decisions, adjustments and remedies) and to growing expectations on senior faculty to perform precisely this sort ’organizational responsibility’ and ’collegiality’ instead of withdrawing into their own teaching and research. Not only are formal managers in the ’chain of command’ pursuing this kind of leadership work, it is also colonising and redefining notions of collegiality and citizenship amongst senior faculty in general. This research builds upon, and adds to earlier similar studies on leadership work in Academia (Macfarlane, 2005; By et al, 2008; Bolden et al, 2009; Clarke & Knights, 2015; Crevani et al, 2015; Kallio et al, 2016; Bristow et al, 2017; Chatelain-Ponroy et al, 2018; Ekman et al, 2018; Spence, 2019; Svedberg Helgesson & Sjögren, 2019).

    Abstract [en]

    While working by projects and re-constructing organisational and institutional norms on how projects should be, individuals also successively construct an image of themselves in relation to these norms. In this article, we will thus analyse how people in project-based operations simultaneously construct projects and individual identities. The analysis of interviews from two theatres indicates that project work and professional identities are co-constructed by means of mutual confirmation, simultaneous confirmation/disconfirmation, and mutual disconfirmation. The individual projects become arenas and critical incidents for such co-construction. These discourses are not always consistent with each other, but they are important for what the individuals expect from projects and what project managers expect from individuals.

    Project leadership as a research field: Antecedents, current research and a critique2009Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The use of project-based organizing is a widespread phenomenon in contemporary economy and society. While the actual leadership task – leading a temporary task force towards the successful delivery of a complex goal – is in many ways an instance of general team leadership, the professionalization of Project Management has resulted in the build-up of specialized knowledge bases derived from theoretical and empirical inquiry into settings labeled as ‘projects’. Based on this reasoning, this paper reviews the knowledge base on project leadership as it is expressed in international scholarly literature. We start by tracing the historical developments back to the roots of the Project Management field, and continue by reviewing the current research trends. Extant research is problematized in terms of individualism, theoretical foundation and empirical basis.

    Abstract [en]

    While project management research in general has become a rapidly expanding field during past decades, scientific inquiry into project leadership has not been a major issue. The extant literature on project leadership also does not make much use of the current developments in leadership research in general – not even those appearing as suitable, such as distributed leadership perspectives. The aim of the paper is threefold: (1) to review the existing research literature on project leadership, (2) to summarise and discuss this research and (3) to make some notes towards a new research agenda built on the current debate in leadership studies on distributed leadership perspectives. Current project leadership research is found to focus exclusively on individuals and their leadership competencies rather than the leadership practices in project settings and does not fully use the perspectives in current leadership research. We then outline a distributed leadership perspective on project leadership research, including the practical consequences of such an ideal and the basic assumptions for future research.

    Social constructionism and entrepreneurship: Basic assumptions and consequences for theory and research2009In: International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour & Research, ISSN 1355-2554, E-ISSN 1758-6534, Vol. 15, no 1, p. 25-47Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - The purpose of this article is to develop a social constructionist approach to entrepreneurship and to discuss its consequences for entrepreneurship research. Design/methodology/approach - Based on a review of current methodological debates in the entrepreneurship field concerning the need and implications of explicit references to basic scientific assumptions in research texts, a social constructionist perspective is outlined and its theoretical and methodological consequences are discussed. Findings - A social constructionist perspective may contribute to the development of entrepreneurship research both through opening up possibilities for the inclusion of new theoretical fields, and through the demands on new methodological approaches following such theoretical inclusions. Originality/value - Based on an identified lack of research literature discussing underlying scientific assumptions within entrepreneurship, the paper provides a thorough discussion and summary of existing and future social constructionist developments.

    What's new in new forms of organizing? On the construction of gender in project-based work2006In: Journal of Management Studies, ISSN 0022-2380, E-ISSN 1467-6486, Vol. 43, no 4, p. 841-866Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In several industries, projects are now the normal form of work for individuals. The consequences of project work have not so far been subject to critical inquiry, however. This implies inquiry not only on how people handle project work at work, it also means inquiring into how they live their lives when working by projects. In this paper, we study this from a constructionist gender perspective, in which project work is seen as an ongoing construction of patterns of femininity and masculinity in society. The aim of the paper is to contribute to an understanding of how project work is related to the ongoing construction of femininity and masculinity in the work and lives of human beings. From a narrative study of individuals in the same project team in an IT-consultancy company, we discuss masculinization and femininization in project-based work. It appears that current project work practices imply reproduction of masculinities such as rationality, efficiency, control, devotion to work etc, while femininization is instead found in the rhetoric of the organizational context and the expectations on newly recruited women. The organization was in the process of femininization through rhetoric on 'family friendliness', but everyday life for consultants was not spent at the organization but in project teams in the customers' offices. Projects are special in the sense that they are clearly delimited episodes of work in which it is possible to apply entirely different norms than 'outside' the project - which makes the tendency to reproduce traditional masculinities even stronger.

    Abstract [en]

    Life can be seen as an ongoing process of identity construction, where individuals try to understand herself from the various identity bases to which she is exposed. Here, we focus on the identity construction of women who have started independent schools in Sweden. The independent school sector emerged after a political reform in 1992, allowing privately owned schools to operate with public funding. The women are subject to gendered expectations on how they are supposed to behave, and they are teachers, part of a profession with strong traditions. They have also become entrepreneurs through starting new independent schools. From a narrative analysis of their individual identity construction, we identify four different narrative strategies used to combine identity bases with differing norms and expectations.

    Thrilled by the discourse, suffering through the experience: Emotions in project-based work2014In: Human Relations, ISSN 0018-7267, E-ISSN 1741-282X, Vol. 67, no 11, p. 1383-1412Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we study emotional processes associated with the project management discourse. Employing a constructionist approach where emotions are experienced within an ordering discursive context, the study identifies four distinct emotional processes associated with the invocation of the project management discourse in daily work practices. From a study of theatre and opera house employees, we suggest that the project management discourse tends to normalize feelings of rigidity and weariness in project-based work, while emphasizing projects as extraordinary settings creating thrill and excitement. Moreover, we argue that this discourse is invoked in ways that lead individuals to internalize emotional states related to chaos and anxiety, while ascribing feelings of certainty and confidence to external organizational norms and procedures. The study highlights how employees construct project-based work as a promise of exciting adventures experienced under conditions of rational control, but also how the negative and suppressed aspects of project-based work are constructed as inevitable and to be endured. Through these emotional processes, the project management discourse is sustained and reinforced.

    Relational dysfunctionality: leadership interactions in a Sarbanes-Oxley Act implementation project2011In: European Journal of International Management, ISSN 1751-6757, E-ISSN 1751-6765, Vol. 5, no 1, p. 13-29Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Extant leadership literatures tend to favour the positive and the normative over the negative and descriptive, and context-free individuals over situated organisational interaction. Dysfunctional leadership thus usually becomes a matter of evil individuals deviating from established norms, rather than how leadership interaction processes unfold. In this paper, we view leadership interaction processes in terms of construction of direction, coorientation and action space. We apply this perspective to an empirical study of an organisational change project in a sub-unit of a multinational corporation. Conceptual consequences of the proposed perspective are discussed in terms of confused direction, deteriorating coorientation and delimited action space.

    Identity construction among boundary-crossing individuals2001In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 17, no 3, p. 357-377Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we describe a study of boundary-crossing individuals (individuals who change organisation frequently) and the way they construct identities through interaction and self-reflexion. It is argued from a social constructionist perspective that studies of the way individual identities are constructed are important to our understanding of the complexity of the identity phenomenon. Identities cannot simply be reduced to certain stable institutionalised aspects such as profession or gender. Rather life should be seen as an ongoing process of identity construction, whereby reflexion upon life episodes and the pattern of such episodes shape identities. The results suggest different patterns of articulations through narratives. These narratives are associated with different underlying ontological discourses that describe diverse ways of reasoning among boundary-crossing individuals.

    An interprofessional perspective on healthcare work: physicians and nurses co-constructing identities and spaces of action2019In: Journal of Management and Organization, ISSN 1833-3672, E-ISSN 1839-3527, p. 1-17Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we develop a theoretical perspective of how professional identities in multi-professional organisational settings are co-constructed in daily interactions. The research reported here is located in a healthcare context where overlapping knowledge bases, unclear divisions of responsibilities, and an increased managerialist emphasis on teamwork make interprofessional boundaries in healthcare opera- tions more complex and blurred than ever. We thereby build on a research tradition that recognises the healthcare sector as a negotiated order, specifically studying how professional identities are invoked, constructed, and re-constructed in everyday work interactions. The perspective is employed in an analysis of qualitative data from interviews and participant observation at a large Swedish hospital, in which we find three main processes in the construction of space of action: hierarchical, inclusive, and pseudo-inclu- sive. In most of the interactions, existing inter-professional divides and power relations are sustained, pre- venting developments towards integrated interprofessional teamwork.

    Sharing is caring: Investigating inter-professional professionalism within the health care organisation2015In: 23rd Nordic Academy of Management Conference: Book of Abstracts, 2015, p. 131-134Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we investigate how inter-professional work affects the reconstruction of professional identities for physicians and nurses in Swedish health care. Taking an inter-professional perspective on identity work, we suggest that future inquiry into professionalism in health care needs to focus on the consequences of collaborative practices rather than pre-NPM notions of autonomous and separated professions. We thereby contribute to ongoing studies of identity construction in inter-professional collaboration (cf Liff & Wikström, 2014) by offering an understanding of how new forms of professionalisms are constructed in negotiations of professional identities.

    Physicians, nurses and leadership work: A study of managerialism and leaderism in the reconstruction of professionalism in Swedish health care2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we study how aspects of leadership work increasingly become part of notions of professionalism for physicians and nurses in the ongoing changes of Swedish health care. We suggest (1) that leadership work is indeed a central and increasingly significant aspect of professionalism for both physicians and nurses, (2) that current developments can be characterised as a gradual incorporation of leadership work in notions of professionalism, and (3) that the construct of leaderism is central to re-formulate our theoretical understanding of leadership work in health care in an era dominated by NPM critique. Leaderism is most present in the empirical study of physician and nurses involved in lean healthcare implementation in a Swedish hospital reported here, but in different ways. This study thus echoes other recent studies on leadership work and leaderism in its observation that leaderist ideals may serve as a subtle but effective way to integrate medical and administrative priorities, while it also points at potential redefinitions of what it entails to be a ‘professional’ in future health care.

    Project Leadership in Becoming: A Process Study of an Organizational Change Project2014In: Project Management Journal, ISSN 8756-9728, E-ISSN 1938-9507, Vol. 45, no 3, p. 5-20Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on the current research in general leadership, we propose that a process ontology is relevant and rewarding for project leadership studies. We argue that project leadership can be studied as the ongoing social production of direction through the construction of actors' space of action, involving continuous construction and reconstruction of (1) past project activities and events; (2) positions and areas of responsibility; (3) discarded, ongoing, and future issues; and (4) intensity, rhythm, and pace. Through an ethnographic case study of an organizational change project, we show how space of action and hence the project direction are in constant flux and becoming.

    Projectification and its consequences: Narrow and broad conceptualisations2014In: South African Journal of Economic and Management Sciences, ISSN 1015-8812, E-ISSN 2222-3436, Vol. 17, no 1, p. 7-21Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we argue that an increased focus on the processes of projectification would be beneficial to project research. By introducing a distinction between narrow and broad conceptualisations of projectification, we extend this research area from its current concern with the increased primacy of projects in contemporary organisational structures into an interest for cultural and discursive processes in a society in which notions of projects are invoked. Through an illustration from our earlier empirical research on the sustenance of project work form and its consequences, the implications of applying broad conceptualisations are further discussed.
