- The authors focus on language and communication at work, and examine language and communication as an inherent part of ongoing organisational processes. The chapters explore the question of language and communication as constitutive of work; analyse how language and communication work in the context of organising and managing; and examine the role of language and communication as part of strategic and institutional work in and around organisational phenomena.
