Organizing for Social Change within Concertive Control Systems: Member Identification, Empowerment, and the Masking of Discipline.
Papa, Michael J.; Auwal, Mohammad A.; Singhal, Arvind
Communication Monographs, v64 n3 p219-49 Sep 1997
Uses concertive control theory to examine why members and workers identify so strongly with the Grameen ("rural") Bank, how the organization offers opportunities for empowerment, and how control systems operate within the bank account for its success. Examines how identification with the Grameen influences member and worker evaluation of disciplinary techniques. Identifies paradoxes associated with democratic practices in organizations. (SR)
