  • A Dynamic Theory of Network Failure: The Case of the Venice Film Festival
           and the Local Hospitality System
    • Authors: Moretti, A; Zirpoli, F.
      Pages: 607 - 633
      Abstract: Organizational and sociological research dealing with network governance has mainly focused on network advantages rather than on their problems or dysfunctionalities. This focus has left the field of network failure partially unexplored. We argue that although there have been some attempts to explicitly theorize network failures, the existing explanations, which are based on structural or social conditions, are not exhaustive. In this article we report the results of our empirical investigation on an underperforming network formed by the world-famous Venice Film Festival and its local hospitality system. We inductively derive a dynamic theory of network failure premised on the interplay of the network’s static dimensions (opportunism and ignorance) and dynamic dimensions (framing and mobilizing), and the role of institutions.

  • Articulating Globalization: Exploring the Bottom of the Pyramid (BOP)
    • Authors: Chatterjee S.
      Pages: 635 - 653
      Abstract: Notwithstanding the ‘yawns of familiarity’ that globalization produces in some circles, there is little doubt that ‘globalization’ continues to provide direction and momentum to much of the present social and political configurations. With this in mind, the present study attempts to come to terms with globalization in one particular site: the much acclaimed bottom/base of the pyramid (BOP) approach. Employing Stuart Hall’s notion of articulation, I examine some of the ‘foundational’ BOP texts to understand how and to what ends globalization is constituted within the BOP project. Extrapolating from themes like markets, capitalism, poverty, and technology, the article attempts to highlight what remains unsaid and inexplicit about ‘globalization.’ At one level, the article explores the ‘metapragmatics of globalization’ (how account/talk about global phenomenon are put to use in different contexts), and, at another level, it offers a critical examination of some of the underlying themes of the BOP proposition. Broadly, the article argues that despite its commitment to contesting dominant forms of globalization, the BOP project shows solidarity with a remarkably reductive view of globalization, and in so doing becomes complicit in maintaining status quo thereby re-inscribing (unwittingly) long standing patterns of marginalization. In the spirit of ‘hermeneutics of emergence,’ the article calls for greater self-reflexivity within the BOP domain which, among other things, would help problematize its central themes and ideas in ways that are, perhaps, more adequate to thinking about the fraught relationship between business and poverty.

  • Coopetition as a Paradox: Integrative Approaches in a Multi-Company,
           Cross-Sector Partnership
    • Authors: Stadtler, L; Van Wassenhove, L. N.
      Pages: 655 - 685
      Abstract: Coopetition is paradoxical in that the simultaneous cooperation and competition can give rise to important synergies as well as tensions. To circumvent these tensions, scholars primarily suggest structural, separation-centred strategies. Such strategies are helpful, but incomplete, as total separation would not allow exploitation of the synergies that coopetition may offer. Based on an in-depth case study of a pioneering multi-company, cross-sector partnership, we explore how employees cope with the remaining tensions. Illustrating employees’ sense-making processes, we show how they build on the organisational and the boundary-spanning task contexts and develop paradoxical frames. Juxtaposing the competitive and collaborative logics, these frames shape the employees’ understanding of who they are (i.e. a nested identity) and what they should do (i.e. contextual segmentation). This juxtaposition allows the employees to navigate emerging tensions by adopting both logics (i.e. integrating behaviour) and by contextually prioritising one logic without ignoring the other (i.e. demarcating behaviour). These insights complement structural strategies with integrative, employee-centred ones and highlight contextual factors that promote such an integrative approach.

  • Disappearing into the Object: Aesthetic Subjectivities and Organizational
           Control in Routine Cultural Work
    • Authors: Siciliano M.
      Pages: 687 - 708
      Abstract: Taking a labor process approach to organizations in cultural industries, this article compares expressive and routine workers (audio engineers and studio attendants) within a US music-recording organization. I describe a practical control strategy that aims to reproduce the pleasurable feel of expressive work among routine cultural workers. Because this strategy depends upon workers’ aesthetic experiences of technological objects, I term this strategy aesthetic enrollment. Drawing upon theories of aesthetic experience and Callon and Law’s enrollment processes, I theorize this strategy as a form of control. Engineers come to love their ability to express creativity at work and appear captivated by the organization’s aesthetically compelling technical artifacts (music equipment or "gear"). Among rehearsal hall attendants, management provides similar aesthetically appealing, expressive technologies. These objects afford experiences among routine staff that resemble those found in more expressive occupations, providing opportunities for creativity in the context of routine, task-oriented work. This strategy manages the "feel" of work and thus incorporates employees by way of their relationship with technical artifacts – part of the organization’s aesthetic landscape.

  • Market Meets Community: Institutional Logics as Strategic Resources for
           Development Work
    • Authors: Venkataraman, H; Vermeulen, P, Raaijmakers, A, Mair, J.
      Pages: 709 - 733
      Abstract: We investigate how an intermediary organization, PRADAN, introduces and promotes market-based activities in tribal villages as a means to improve the social and economic conditions of rural women and their families in two districts in India. We draw from the literature on institutional logics and focus on the strategies and activities of PRADAN – an NGO working in poor rural areas in Northern India – to show how PRADAN instrumentally used a market logic and a community logic to develop new social structures in these rural communities. Moreover, we show what effect this had on beneficiaries and their families and how difficult it has been to convince rural communities and gain their trust. On the basis of these findings we show how logics can be deployed as a means to alter institutional arrangements. We find that the simultaneous enactment of both community and market logics was critical in the development of new social structures (Self-Help Groups). Finally, we show how the introduction of market-based activities by PRADAN is best understood as an ongoing and staged process that strongly builds on a continuous interplay of multiple logics.
