Davide Nicolini @ next IMCA Forethought Seminar


Davide Nicolini from Warwick Business School will give a talk at IMCA’s next Forethought Seminar with the title “Using the concept of practice to the study of organization. Why and what for?”.

Thursday, 29. March, 16.30 – 18.00, room A24.

In this presentation Davide Nicolini will discuss why to use the concept of practice to study organisational phenomena, how this can be done, and what for. He will argue that practice theories can offer a radically new way of understanding and explaining social and organizational phenomena. He will build on his work in this area conducted

over several years using examples drawn, albeit not exclusively, from some of his recent publications (Nicolini, 2009a; Nicolini 2009b; Nicolini 2011; Nicolini, Mengis and Swan, in press).
