McKenna, Steve, Garcia-Lorenzo, Lucia and Bridgman, Todd (2010) Managing, managerial control and managerial identity in the post-bureaucratic world. Journal of management development, 29 (2). pp. 128-137. ISSN 0262-1711
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of the issues involved in managerial control and managerial identity in relation to the idea of a post-bureaucratic organization. In addition it introduces the papers in this special issue. Design/methodology/approach – The paper identifies the increasing complexity of issues of managerial control and managerial identity that arise from the idea of a post-bureaucratic organization and post-bureaucratic working practices, such as flex-work and project management. Findings – The paper suggests that the form and nature of managerial control and managerial identity are constantly evolving and in a state of flux as a consequence of processes of (de)bureaucratization and (re)bureaucratization. Originality/value – The paper raises important questions about the nature of management in post-bureaucratic work environments and challenges the behaviourist competencies approach to developing managers.
