Here is a series of posts on ”organizing in between and beyond.” The series is inspired by David Bohm and F. David Peat’s notion of ”the order between and beyond.”1. Bohm and Peat’s ideas are used to investigate ”order”2 in organizing. The series is part of an ongoing inquiry into a deeper ”generative order”3 for organizing, an ”organizing beyond,” which transcends the compromises of ”organizing in between.” It’s a search for a major shift in how we perceive and organize work.
The inquiry into organizing orders is inspired by
Bohm and Peat’s book Science, Order, and Creativity.
1 Bohm and Peat ask whether it is possible to move from fixed positions to an ”order” that lies both ”between and beyond.” See David Bohm and F. David Peat, Science, Order, and Creativity (Routledge, 2010, first published 1987), pp. 275–314.
2 Bohm and Peat explore the meanings and implications of ”order” in a discursive fashion, since the notion of ”order” is too broad to be encompassed within an all-inclusive definition. Ibid., pp. 97–146.
3 The notion of ”generative order” is primarily concerned with a deeper order out of which the manifest ”order” can emerge creatively. Ibid., pp. 80, 148, 154–157, 216, 286–287.
