The series of posts on Organizing Between and Beyond is an ongoing inquiry into a deeper generative order for organizing. It’s a search for a major shift in how we perceive and organize work, and in how we relate to ourselves and others.
Here is an overview of all the posts in the series.
My inquiry is inspired by David Bohm and F. David Peat’s notions of order,1 generative order,2 and the order between and beyond 3 in Science, Order, and Creativity. Bohm and Peat’s ideas are used to explore order in organizing.
Bohm and Peat, Science, Order, and Creativity.
1 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. See David Bohm and F. David Peat, Science, Order, and Creativity (Routledge, 2010, first published 1987), pp. 97–146.
2 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.
3 Bohm and Peat ask whether it is possible to move to an order that lies between and beyond. Ibid., pp. 275–314.
