Bringing a fresh perspective to the evaluation of management problems, this book draws upon interpretative research and builds upon existing interpretative studies to scrutinise the influence managers have on employees' understanding.

It considers how managers use ideas and visions to frame their employees' internalised understanding of the external rules and instructions that govern their work. The book brings an interpretative perspective to the question of individual and group competence and look at how this is linked with understanding.

Throughout Managing Understanding in Organizations refers to international case studies and considers the cross-cultural impact on management and understanding at work.
