Review of Practice Theory in Action in Organization Studies

  • Sep 17, 2019 |

    The review appears in Organization Studies. It isauthored by Neil Thompson and begins with:

    "This book affixes entrepreneurship studies to workplace studies by advancing the analyses of authentic workplace conversations of innovative entrepreneurial teams. At the heart of the book lies the notion that ‘what people actually do in practice can be very different from what they think they do’. Campbell convincingly articulates that careful attention to actual ‘backstage’ interaction – rather than more common retrospective interviews, surveys or ‘frontstage’ performances – enables entrepreneurship researchers to unravel the link between observable exchanges and the organizing of a new venture. Although not a definitive source on the subject matter, this makes for fascinating reading and provides a solid foundation for the analysis of real-time conversation in entrepreneurship scholarship."
