Sharing your work and receiving feedback is always great. But it has a unique flavor when you have the chance to dialogue with colleagues from your institution. I presented at emlyon a working paper on how bureaucracy shapes the organization of knoweldge work and got constructive comments on how to push the work further. The occasion was celebrated with an "I heart bureaucracy" cake made by me!
In the end of march, I had the wonderful opportunity to present my academic work on Bureaucracy and Knowledge Work at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) following an invitation from Professor Paul du Gay from the Department of Organization (IOA). The event brought together members of the VELUX and POVI groups at CBS and also included a presentation by Bernardo Zacka on his work on street-level bureaucracy. My talk examined how bureaucratic structures shape what counts as expertise and knowledge work dynamics in organizations. The comments were superb and it was energizing to meet fellow scholars interested in formal organization in my field! Full details here: https://cbs.nemtilmeld.dk/44/it-5CPW8RM7,19867,30726/
