dc.description.abstractDrawing upon the extended symbolic interactionist tradition, this paper examines management activities in the context of office holders and teams. As researchers, if we wish to fully appreciate management in everyday life, then we must pay particular attention to teams, team creation and teamwork, for it is through people doing things together that organizational life is realized. Specifically, I examine the relevance of performance teams, legacy teams, legislated teams, mission-based teams, and the relevance of secrecy for enacting teams. Encouraging an attentiveness to perspectives and activities of office holders, this paper resists more structural renderings of organizational life and encourages researcher to attend to management in the making.en
dc.description.abstractNawiązując do rozszerzonej tradycji interakcjonizmu symbolicznego, w zaprezentowanym artykule analizie poddane zostały działania zarządcze w kontekście aktywności osób zarządzających zespołami i funkcjonowania tychże zespołów. Jako badacze, jeśli chcemy w pełni zrozumieć zasady i funkcje zarządzania w życiu codziennym, musimy zwrócić szczególną uwagę na zespoły, proces ich tworzenia i pracę zespołową, ponieważ życie organizacyjne urzeczywistnia się poprzez wspólne działanie ludzi. W szczególności analizie poddane zostało znaczenie zespołów wykonawczych, zespołów o charakterze dziedzicznym (legacy teams), zespołów powołanych na mocy prawa (legislated teams), zespołów opierających się na misji (mission-based teams) oraz znaczenie zasady poufności dla zespołów uchwałodawczych (enacting teams). Zachęcając do zwrócenia uwagi na perspektywy i działania osób zarządzających, proponuję w artykule odejście od strukturalnych ujęć życia organizacyjnego na rzecz zwrócenia uwagi na zarządzanie w procesie
