Example text

What is selected becomes manageable, and in this sense our institutions are only as complex as our imaginations can handle. We could stop at this point, given that the industry recipe is easy to research empirically. Then, like much of institutional theory, this empirical basis could 28 Developments in intercultural and inter-institutional knowledge management be taken as a grounding against which we can research or explain the management’s strategy-making process, suggesting a highly context-specific theory of the firm, just as empirical descriptions of cultures ground cultural analysis without an overarching deductive theory.

Every meaningful message presumes some prior lens or meaning – or absorptive capacity – already in place. It is only a short step from here to see that meaning is evidence of our imagination, without which we only process things rationally and do not create anything. This becomes clearer when we look at the philosophy of language and its three broad justifications for the assertion that a message means this rather than that; things theories, idea theories, and practice theories (Stainton, 2000).

The underlying theory of cognition and action was drawn from ‘personal construct theory’, an operationalisation of bounded rationality and sense-making as Weick uses the term (Kelly, 1955; Weick, 1995). My analysis shows: (a) that each recipe or managerial meaning system can be captured with around a dozen distinct categories or dimensions of influence, and that these are axiomatic to the industry’s strategic discourse, (b) that the recipes of different industries are wholly dissimilar, and (c) that a recipe captures the major characteristics of a firm’s environment and identity.
