First Article/Chapter: Morgan’s (1997) chapter brings up the issue of interests leading to conflicts that tend to be addressed/resolved through the exercise of one or more forms of power. In what ways do competing interests among actors appear in your case/issue? What conflicts do they create? And how to actors draw on sources of power to address these conflicts? What is the “fall-out” from the use(s) of power? 2nd Article/Chapter: Milley’s (2008) chapter offers a lens for analyzing politics in educational organizations and how they may be addressed through “communicative action” (a.k.a. authentic dialogue). In what ways do politics reveal themselves in your case/issue? How might they relate to an imbalance between strategic and communicative interactions among actors? How might the negative effects of politics in the case/issue be mitigated drawing on ideas in the chapter? – You are also welcome to bring other insights, reflections or questions to bear. The foregoing are just possibilities to prime your thinking. Criticisms of the theoretical perspectives are also welcomed if backed up with clear argumentation/justification.
