The Rhetoric of Self-Directive Management and the Operation of Organizational Power.
Salvador, Michael; Markham, Annette
Communication Reports, v8 n1 p45-53 Win 1995
Presents a critical-interpretive case study of an organization that illustrates the communicative accomplishment of organizational power. Details how the managing ownership espoused a rhetoric of self-directive management which obscured conflicting political interests and relations of power. Demonstrates the difficulties organizational members face in recognizing and dealing with political interests. Finds that organizations are never politically neutral. (PA)
