Examining the experiences of organizational practitioners, this informative book features contributions from experienced leaders, consultants and managers in various organizations, and narrative accounts of the contributors work address key topical questions.

Rather than offering descriptions of organizational life, this book provides reflective accounts of real life experiences of researching in organizations, and will be a valuable insight for academics and business school students and practitioners.

In considering several key questions in terms of daily experience, the contributors explore the perspective of complex responsive processes, investigate how this assists them to make sense of their experience and analyze how it leads to their development.

About the Series

Complexity as the Experience of Organizing

Providing a natural successor to the Editors' influential series - Complexity and Emergence in Organizations - this series aims to take this work further by taking very seriously the work of organizational practitioners. Each book brings together the experiences of actual managers, leaders and consultants, and contextualizes these experiences showing how complex responsive processes yield deeper insights into practice and its development.
