Abstract

So far we have emphasised that organisational change cannot simply be understood as the product of the impersonal working out of rational economic processes. We have demonstrated the embodied character of current changes, emphasising that individuals within organisations are not passive in the (re)making of their workplaces. In the remainder of this book we seek to extend this analysis by focusing on the subjective dimensions of organisational membership, in order to show how the sorts of identity, value, aspiration and attitude that respondents hold towards their participation in their organisation help to clarify their actions within the organisation itself.
