The academic study of organizations is in a condition of heterodoxy, where diverse methods and theories collide and compete, gathered together only in the broken net of a name. This book assembles some of the bits that break off in the process of this collision. It plays with the already contested boundaries - 'correct images' and 'correct narratives' - of a legitimate organization studies, so as to attest to a destabilization of any theory and method that would desire to capture, reproduce, and indoctrinate knowledge. The book brings together a group of original thinkers and writers, who push the boundaries of innovative and unconventional work as governed by prevailing standards in the dominant bastions of organization studies.
