Negotiating Order in Interorganizational Communication: Discourse Analysis of a Meeting of Three Diverse Organizations.
Bennington, Ashley J.; Shetler, Judy C.; Shaw, Thomas
Journal of Business Communication, v40 n2 p118-43 Apr 2003
Analyzes the discourse during a meeting of three diverse organizations as they attempt to resolve conflicting organizational interests. Explains that the three diverse groups were a waste disposal business, a grass-roots community organization, and a state regulatory agency. Notes that discourse analysis suggests that organizations with different cultures find it difficult to achieve a negotiated order because they fail to share the symbolic meaning of common terms. (PM)
