Talking About Organizations is a weekly conversational podcast about management and organization studies. It is free, not-for-profit and publicly available for all to enjoy! Jacky Swan, Davide Nicolini, and Dawn Coton , to whom we are forever grateful for placing their trust and money! The purpose of the podcast is two-fold: 1 to make conversations about management and organization studies widely available, and 2 to spark further discussions, ideas, and dialogue around the fundamental ideas on which contemporary management science and practice are based.
Well, on the one hand we are eager to open up the field of organization and management studies to as many people as possible. Not only are we passionate about the research we do, we feel that there is not enough awareness of what organizational scholarship does and the insights it contributes to the understanding and everyday conduct of work in organizations. First, we really believe that there is some incredible stuff happening in this field and would like to have this podcast make it accessible to everyone else.
Second, we hope people will find what we talk about interesting enough to share their problems and questions. This could give us ideas for research that others might find useful and allow us to better engage with a broader audience.
Sensemaking in Organizations
We might not be able to answer all the questions we get, but we will definitely have ideas about them that you may find useful. Finally, making this podcast gives us the opportunity to read all kinds of amazing texts and discuss them in detail with friends and informed colleagues. It deepens our learning in a way that is both enjoyable and purposeful.
And the best part is that you get the full effect of this learning by just listening in!
I look forward to future installments. Plus, I think you all four achieved a fair assessment of the Taylor; he is often maligned and not put in his proper historical context. Paul R. Our aims are to be both educational and entertaining! We hope that anyone listening to the podcast will learn interesting things without otherwise having to sit through actual lectures or seminars. That being said, if you are a student, combining your curriculum with our podcast will certainly yield superior results!
Ideally, anyone should be able to listen to this but due to the nature of what we do for a living all of us are, after all, full-time academics it is plausible that a basic level of background knowledge may be required. We think that our peers, industry practitioners as well as students of management, organizations, sociology, and philosophy of all levels are probably the main target audience.
While there may be topical sequences of episodes covering some large or particularly interesting topics, each episode is self-contained and is focused on an isolated reading or set of readings. We break the episode into parts to keep them at a reasonable length some as short as 20 minutes, others are longer. But we only use that as a target — the conversation goes wherever we wish to take it! The conversation was insightful, instructive and the comments often sharp and perceptive.
See a Problem?
I am really impressed. The discussion hit on all the aspects of the book that are both good and troubling. As academics, we naturally attend or host a lot of conferences and related events, and these are often ripe for excellent dialogue on current research directions around contemporary problems. We record these in order to share with you interesting conversations, cutting-edge thinking, leading practices and opinions etc. Special episodes always involve a guest or two. Supplements are brief recordings by one of us, or one of our guests, that introduce additional information on the subject of the accompanying episode.
Supplements can be historical background, summary of a reading, commentary… basically anything we may think will enhance the value you get from listening to the actual longer episode. This is because we feel that supplements are best done by our special guests; and we intend to release them for those episodes only. Here, we get them presented in a neat package, including a critical analysis of content as well as applicability and relevance.
What I like the most is that the discussants do not leave out the social and historical background of the readings as well as the authors. Listening to the podcast will help you better understand the foundational concepts of management and organization theory as well as help develop an instrumentarium for how to read and properly understand such texts. Summaries are brief segments aimed to summarize the preceding episode for the benefit of our time-strapped listeners. However, we found that it was better to replace our two-part-plus-summary format with full three-part episodes starting in Episode 35, so future episodes will not have summaries.
In our original site, we included a separate blog that allowed podcasters and guests to post on topics inspired by an Episode. In the new site, we decided that it was better to incorporate those extra posts as part of the associated Episodes. Highly recommended.

It was informative, helps you understand the man, his book and bring them to life. Nice to have a range of perspectives too. In addition to this, you may be surprised how much of what you experience in everyday life today originated from ideas expressed in the texts we intend to cover. This is a two-fold, very serious process. One, we will try to start at the beginning of organizational science at least in the early days of this podcast and two, we will choose to read what we are interested in.
Where there is common ground between these two variables, our topics will emerge. We also aim to explore topics suggested to us by listeners, so do contact us with any ideas.
We always have things we want to do but are unable to due to time constraints so initiative and enthusiasm from our listeners is super great news! It gave me permission to slow down, pour a glass of sherry, snuggle in a comfortable chair, listen in and take an occasional note, knowing I could share my thoughts later on its blog.
So keep up the good work!
