Personlig profil


My research interest is in the social and cultural aspects of organization and management as they appear in organizing processes and organizational change. I advocate methodological pluralism and have used a wide range of qualitative methods to advance an understanding of how change affects the organization of work, work itself and how change is responded by employees. Moreover, I look at how change is justified and managed. Specifically I have looked at the standardization of work, merger, professional identity and professionalization, digital technology, robots and automation. Theoretically I work with Bourdieu’s practice theory, narrative and discourse theory, framing theory and social exchange theory. I am currently co-editing a book on Bourdieu in organization and management that will appear on Routledge in 2021.
