Organizing ”between and beyond” is a series of posts, which 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 explore ”order”2 in organizing. Here is an overview of all the posts in the series.
The exploration of ”order” in organizing is inspired by
Bohm and Peat’s book Science, Order, and Creativity.
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.
1 David Bohm and F. David 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 The notion of ”order” is too broad to be encompassed within an all-inclusive definition. Bohm and Peat explore the meanings and implications of ”order” in a discursive fashion. 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.
