Sense and sensibility in managerial advise

C. Contino, F. den Hond

    Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


    The article discusses a study that aims to discover which managerial advice is less prone to failure by studying the content of managerial advice and proposing that in addition to algorithmic rationality, communicative and reflexive rationalities are also needed. The article discusses the place of paradox in organizational life and management, and explains two models, one looking at the uncontrollability paradox and another accommodating both contradictions and diversity. The article discusses algorithmic rationality as a form of judgmental rationality, communicative rationality, and reflexive rationality.
