Organizational Olympians free pdf This book is the first in a trilogy on myth making in organizing, exploring the role of myth in contemporary organizational discourse and practice. It is the first extensive publication that systematizes the current and emerging interest in the research of organizational mythologies based on narrative and ethnographic methods. The topic is of high interest but there are very few little publications on it. There is a high probability of coming "new turn" in organization studies. It develops a new theory, based on recent research and reflection of contributors.The first volume in a series of three focuses on myth in everyday organizational life, pertaining to individual actors: heroes and heroines, and the roles they play in organizations. Attitudes and temperaments, as well as professional ethos, are narrated and mythologized to reveal an archetypal dimension of organizing and organizations.
