Organizational theorists talk a lot about organizational development. Although they can express themselves eloquently, too often the practitioner is not convinced by their talk. The authors of The End of Organization Theory? are in favor of the 'doers' doing most of the talking themselves. Thus, in this book, Oyvind Palshaugen tells the story of an action research project in which a reorganization of the discourse between management and workers serves as the basis for an organizational development process. Bjorn Gustavsen, Dag Osterberg and John Shotter add critical comments.
