When you retrace your steps.

I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)

Following all these readings and coming to the end of this journey, I went back to my starting point and tried to bring a little more weight to the works that had inspired Hafsi and Demers’ book. Now that I had read Schein, Hafsi and Fabi, as well as Thompson, the next on the list was Pascale Gagliardi, The Creation and Change of Organizational Cultures: A Conceptual Framework. After some research to find out who he was, I realised that if a person didn’t leave enough traces, it was rather difficult to trace them.

Nevertheless, the addition of his concept of the vicious and virtuous circle as well as the approach of fan of options was able to attract my attention, influenced by my two initial authors. Gagliardi’s paper is shorter than the other books I had already consulted, which I really liked. Why make it long when you can make it short! Although short, it featured an impressive bibliography for the size of the paper.

After integrating this bibliography, I didn’t manage to create the desired change and so I had to go on to the next book. To be continued tomorrow.
