Abstract

Organizational theorists talk a lot about organizational development. Although they can express themselves eloquently, too often the practitioner is not convinced by their talk. The authors of <i>The End of Organization Theory?</i> are in favor of the &#8216;doers&#8217; doing most of the talking themselves. Thus, in this book, &#216;yvind P&#229;lshaugen tells the story of an action research project in which a reorganization of the discourse between management and workers serves as the basis for an organizational development process. Bj&#246;rn Gustavsen, Dag &#216;sterberg and John Shotter add critical comments.
