Beyond Sensegiving: Sensemaking patterns by management groups in strategic innovation and change: an exploration, framework and process model [книги]
Опубликовано на портале: 05-01-2003Ben Bryant
This paper is an exploration of how sensemaking patterns amongst management groups influence the actual practices of strategising over extended periods of time. Using an eight-year longitudinal case study of a single strategic issue, (a strategic marketing innovation in a division of a global financial services company), the paper aims to advance the work of Gioia and Chittipeddi (1991) by exploring the micro-processes of sensegiving and other sensemaking patterns amongst management groups. In the first order analysis, four different patterns of sensemaking are identified: sensegiving, fragmented sensemaking, polarised sensegiving and communal sensemaking. In the second order analysis the paper explores deeper explanations for each of the patterns of the sensemaking processes by examining contextual variables and triggers for each sensemaking pattern. Finally, a phased model is presented for discussion which links the four sensemaking patterns together over time and in so doing, identifies a number of theoretical issues in the strategising process such as the dynamic patterns of actions and interactions between senior and middle managers, the integration of micro-politics and sensegiving patterns, the study of social action in sensemaking beyond strategic conversations and communications, and the dynamic nature of consensus and diversity.

Organizational, managerial and leaderhip activity has traditionally been understood from a substance point of view. Organizations have been seen as typically producing tangible products through various forms of technostructural work process arrangements, and they have primarily been seen as contexts where leadership have been relation-oriented, task-oriented, neither or both. However, the current interest in organizational culture identity, image and reputation and organizational discourse points towards an understanding of organizational activitity as increasingly occuring in the imaginary realm. This development can be understood as a reflection of empirical changes in contemporary organizations. The traditional focus on production and manufacturing has, in many business sectors, been replaced with a focus on R & D, marketing, and branding. The phenomenon of branding, while common-sensically understood as a marketing tool, can, also be understood as an exercise in management of meaning. Branding does not only inform external stakeholders, such as customers and investors, about the core values of the organization. It also potentially instructs and directs organizational members. In this sense, branding can be viewed as a management and leadership practice. Drawing on a case study of a management consulting firm this paper attempts to illuminate the anatomy of such practices and, to some extent, their effects.
