Making People Grow: A New Understanding of Organisational Ethics with Deleuze and Guattari

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Deleuze and Guattari’s scholarly production is not an easy read, and it might be open to more interpretations. However, some of their concepts provide a useful framework for investigating organisational ethics and the kind of organisational practices which might support ethics. This chapter introduces Deleuze and Guattari, focusing on the concepts of becoming, becoming-minority and desire, to build a conceptual and analytical framework which form an ‘ethics of becoming’. The ethics of becoming uniquely highlights the mutual connections between development of individual career paths and organisational ethics. The final objective is to show the potential of this framework to inspire organisations to ‘care for’ their members, at a moment where it is claimed that organisations are becoming boundaryless and careers fragmented. This chapter has been born in the framework of a project focused on fostering gender equality in science (TRIGGER); thus, examples from the data collected within this project will support the proposed arguments.
