LUMS/IAS Research SeminarProfessor Stewart Clegg, University of Technology, SydneyThe Futures of Power and Their Implications for Organizations11.00 - 12.0016th June 2006MBA Lecture Theatre (LT 4), Lancaster University Management SchoolStewart Clegg is Professor of Management in the School of Business at the University of Technology, Sydney and Director of ICAN Research there. He is also Professor of Management at the Aston Business School in Birmingham in the UK and visiting professor at Vrije University of Amsterdam and Maastricht University in Holland and at EM Lyon in France. He has taught in universities in nineteen countries during the course of his career, and has published widely in the fields of organisation and management studies. Although he has treated a wide range of issues in his thirty five books and 100 + refereed articles, he is perhaps best known for his work on organisations and power.Seminar abstractIn this talk, Prof Stewart Clegg, who is a leading authority on organization theory in the world, reviews the argument of a new book* he is about to publish with colleagues and in which he returns to the consideration of power in organizations. This is a theme that preoccupied his early career, and which he has tirelessly illuminated since. Taking his audience on a tour of power's multiple conceptualizations and expressions, Professor Clegg argues that, at the core of organizational projects, are the activities and politics of organizational elites. The implications for organizations of the trends and tendencies exposed are analyzed, and different "futures of power" are envisaged.
