In sports, the phrase “a win is a win” refers to the bottom line in those competitions: Winning a game. How the game was won is not as important as the fact that it was won. In many ways, we have r...

We critically assess how the devolution of researcher care moderates knowledge development in organization studies. Defining researcher care as what scholars are concerned and passionate about, we consider the extent to which individual researchers lose their personal voice in researching organizations. This bounding of care by the research community is a reflection of the way that researchers knowingly alter their care in researching organizations to gain associated career and reputational bene...

In 1971, the Administrative Science Quarterly provided a book series review of the landmark OD series by Addison Wesley. This book series, edited by Edgar Schein, Warren Bennis and Dick Beckhard, was a series of six slim books, priced at 3.50 each; or "7.80 for an entire boxed set." The publisher gradually added books, and by the 1990s more than 27 titles in the series were authored by OD and MCD scholars such as Warner Burke, Susan Mohrman, Thomas Cummings, Larry Greiner, John Kotter, Richar...

We critically assess a common approach to scholarly impact that relies almost exclusively on a single stakeholder (i.e., other academics). We argue that this approach is narrow and insufficient, and thereby threatens the credibility and long-term sustainability of the management research community. We offer a solution in the form of a broader and novel conceptual and measurement framework of scholarly impact: a pluralist perspective. It proposes actions that depart from the current win–lose and ...

Organization development (OD) applies social science knowledge to help organizations change and improve themselves. From its beginnings over 70 years ago in group dynamics, action research, and humanistic psychology, the field has expanded enormously to include a diversity of theories and practices aimed at developing organizations at different levels, from jobs, teams, and organizations to interorganization alliances and societal change. Along with this expansive evolution, however, has come in...

Employee involvement is a popular approach to improve organization performance. It moves decision making downward in the organization so employees can make decisions and solve problems as quickly and close to their source as possible. One of the most developed and referenced approaches to involvement is Edward E. Lawler’s model of “high-involvement work processes” (HIWP). It describes organizational attributes that contribute to employee involvement and explains how they work together to increas...
