Controlling Tropes in Administrative Science.
Pinder, Craig C.; Bourgeois, V. Warren
Administrative Science Quarterly, v27 n4 p641-52 Dec 1982
In this third article in a special issue on the utilization of organizational research, the authors argue that administrative science's heavy reliance on tropes (similies, analogies, and metaphors) borrowed from other disciplines may be misleading and may impede the development of a useful body of administrative knowledge.
