Synopsis

Identity in Organizations Building Theory Through Conversations by David A. Whetten

This investigation of the fundamental character of organizational identity and identification with an organization is arranged in the form of a provocative discussion between key scholars. The book focuses on three different paradigmatic views of identity: functionalist, interpretive and postmodern. Similarities and distinctions among these ways of understanding are explored, and numerous theoretical and practical insights are gained. The book concludes with a discussion of the relevance of identity as a construct in organizational study, and observations on conversation and theory building.

Reviews

The content of the book, conservational style, and the pushes to extract research questions are motivating. -- Jane Dutton * Academy of Management Review *
