The See-Saw of Management Fads: Remarks Towards a Dialectical Description.
Nettle, Denis (2004) The See-Saw of Management Fads: Remarks Towards a Dialectical Description. Working Paper. Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia.
It is a common perception that the history of management discourse involves an oscillation between dualistic faddish perspectives. This paper, which derives its theoretical impetus from Marx and Wittgenstein, seeks to outline a philosophical, sociological and psychological diagnosis of this see-sawing process which avoids the dualism and logocentricism that dominates both fads and much of the criticism of faddism. Through abandoning dualities, we may develop more meaningful concepts of 'knowledge', 'organisation' and 'process'.
