Abstract

In any workplace the discourses and traditions of practice are established over time and embedded in a continually emerging storyline that is unique to that organisation (Boje, 2013). Morgan (2006) reminds us that the culture of an organisation is a complex non-linear system “characterized by multiple systems of interaction that are both ordered and chaotic” (p. 251) and which continue to self-evolve in ways that are largely unpredictable.
