Beyond Conventional Sociology of Organisation

Beyond Conventional Sociology of Organisation Vikash N Pandey Akhileshwar Pathak Conventionally, organisations have been understood by reading the context in which they exist. This mapping of social context has questioned the 'closed system' approach in organisation behaviour literature. However, organisations are text and they emerge and operate in a context. The context, including state, law and society, are dynamic and interactive social processes. Once an organisation is born, its constitution binds the constituents in its language like law; and it is a social fact re-shaping the context. Therefore an understanding of organisations has to read the text and context as dynamic processes and multiple discourses taking place within and amongst the organisation, society, law and state.
