Siinviidatud vabalevis olev tekst leidis oma koha peamiselt seetõttu, et tegeleb eksperimenteerimise ja raamistamise küsimustega organisatsiooni näitel. Üldiselt etableerunud Eesti avaliku sektori praktikates (meelevaldne ning loodetavasti ekslik järeldus minuni jõudvatest praktikatest) võiks värskust tuua ja konkureerivaid perspektiive lasta esile tõusta teistsugused mõtlemispraktikad, sest ühes vaos siblides ei pruugi ju areng vastata ootustele. 😂
Scholars interested in performativity have demonstrated that enactments of conceptual ideas can contribute to shaping organizational orders (e.g. Beunza & Ferraro, 2019; D’Adderio & Pollock, 2014; Mason & Araujo, 2020).
In this paper, we build on and expand this body of research by studying how concepts, and particularly those ‘ambiguous’ ones that admit multiple courses of action (Giroux, 2006), may provoke and intervene in economic processes through experiments. […] We study an emerging concept within the sharing economy: mobility-as-a-service or MaaS.
Episteemiline ja ontoloogilien …
Epistemic work, in our analysis, denotes the ongoing and multiple efforts to frame and reframe the concept based on definitional negotiations (cf. Knorr Cetina & Preda, 2001). Ontological work, in turn, signals the socio-material choreographing required to provoke conceptual translations to shape reality – in our case literally ‘creating’ an entity called mobility-as-a-service by drawing together public and private partners, pieces of software, public transport infrastructures, business models and urban designs.
The ‘performative turn’ in the social sciences has resonated across a number of disciplines and drawn from a variety of origins (Gond et al., 2016). Generally, following an Austinian tradition, performativity studies in management pay attention to how concepts have practical bearings on the world they describe. From this viewpoint, concepts act to represent and intervene in a reality (Hacking, 1983). […] Carton (2020) demonstrates the performativity of a management theory – the Blue Ocean strategy – through experimental framing and reframing of actor assemblages and gradually enrolling an ever-broadening reality into the theory’s reach.
Muniesa and Callon (2007) distinguish between two experimental ideal types, namely in vitro and in vivo, with a third type (the ‘platform’) representing a middle ground.
Yet, as we have shown, to think economic experiments ‘onto-epistemologically’ helps to better understand their organizing effects, in particular how they provoke new constellations across actor groups, artifacts and practices to bring about a controlled multiplicity of organizing.
