Logics, Knowledge and Action Research
Responsible organisation
2006 (English)Conference paper (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

“Workplace logics” signify attitudes that employees express in close interaction, formal decision-making and collaborative interventions. The term covers a metaphorical “mental context” rather than a mathematically coherent understanding of social control mechanisms that influence interlocutors in cooperative activity. Workplace logics relate to future-oriented choices that employees make so as to obtain targeted production goals. But logics also hold an explanatory potential. They enable for the researcher to account for social systems that need to be designed before they are acted on. The objective for analysing workplace logics is to turn attention away from language and focus on action. Successful action research outcomes facilitate for individual and organizational learning, the latter of which is rarely fulfilled in contemporary research.
