FROM BANANA TIME TO JUST-IN-TIME: POWER AND RESISTANCE AT WORK
Following debates within this journal regarding the absence of adequate studies of resistance in the contemporary fields of industrial sociology and organisational behaviour, this paper seeks to understand its reasons and consequences. Through an examination of the history of approaches to the study of power and resistance at work, the grounds for this debate are considered and illuminated. The paper then suggests how this debate might be taken forward through developing the ideas of tactics and strategies and episodic and dispositional power.
Key Words: discretion; power; resistance; strategies; tactics.
