Politics of the Documentary Film for Critical Management Research https://management-aims.com/index.php/mgmt/article/view/4545 <p>Whether as a material or a method, the documentary film is increasingly used in management research. An analysis of the filmic device used in&nbsp;<em>Mondovino</em>&nbsp;– a film about the effects of globalization on the wine world – offers an opportunity to explore different politics at work in the documentary film. Based on the concept of politics as defined by Rancière, and the ‘critical device’ of Caillet, we show that the documentary film is a valuable resource for both the cinephile researcher and the filmmaking researcher engaged in critical research. We ascribe three political dimensions to the documentary film: (1) through its filmic device, it operates as an intervention or performance that concretely changes reality within its scope of action&nbsp;<em>(filmmaking)</em>; (2) through its narrative, it builds a critical alternative that reconfigures our historical world&nbsp;<em>(worldmaking)</em>; and (3) through making the filmic device visible in the cinematographic narrative, it enables the viewer to relate the political act of filmmaking to the critical issues in the narrative&nbsp;<em>(worldmaking in filmmaking)</em>.</p> Stéphane Debenedetti Véronique Perret Copyright (c) 2022 Stéphane Debenedetti, Véronique Perret http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2022-03-15 2022-03-15 25 1 1–14 1–14 10.37725/mgmt.v25.4545 Managing Medical Errors in a University Hospital: How to Handle the Internal Learning–External Protection Paradox? https://management-aims.com/index.php/mgmt/article/view/4558 <p>Hospitals are looking to strengthen their safety culture by learning internally from medical errors that occur to prevent them from happening again. This implies creating an atmosphere of psychological safety that encourages errors to be reported. Only open communication from teams can help to improve practices. Also, many establishments have implemented no-punishment charters, creating a policy of tolerance of errors. However, a medical error can become a legal issue. The fact that a court of law can use anything hospital staff have said or written after an adverse event has occurred encourages defensive communication to protect oneself from outside stakeholders. To date, the literature on medical errors has not studied how hospitals overcome this contradiction. In this qualitative research, we use paradox theory in the case of a single university hospital to understand how a hospital confronted with medical errors can effectively manage the internal learning–external protection paradox. A deeper study of this specific context also allows us to supplement the literature on organizational paradoxes. We demonstrate how the interactions between different levels of analysis contribute to operationalizing paradox management in a dynamic and characteristic way, on the one hand, and what makes it effective, on the other hand.</p> Julien Cusin Anne Goujon-Belghit Copyright (c) 2022 julien cusin, Anne Goujon-Belghit http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2022-03-15 2022-03-15 25 1 15–32 15–32 10.37725/mgmt.v25.4558 Not Now: Negotiating Research Access during Phases of Crisis https://management-aims.com/index.php/mgmt/article/view/5517 <p>The conduct of qualitative research often rests on a fundamental condition: the establishment of research access. Gaining quality research access is a challenge even at the best of times due to the intimacy and timescale of data collection. This challenge becomes even more severe in situations of crises, such as the Covid-19 pandemic, when actors are concerned with maneuvering organizations through tough times. Despite its centrality for the conduct of qualitative research, there is a lack of methodological studies on the establishment of access in management and organization research. Therefore, this article contributes to the methods literature in management and organization research by investigating the enabling conditions of research access in crisis situations. We draw on a comparative case analysis of eight instances of access negotiations conducted during the Covid-19 pandemic. We show how interpersonal trust and perceived value of the research project mitigate the constraining effects of Covid-19, and we also reveal the underlying mechanisms through which trust and perceived value are established. Our findings are of relevance to all researchers seeking research access for qualitative research projects.</p> Martin Friesl Erik Hanel Vivienne Konuk Copyright (c) 2022 Martin Friesl, Erik Hanel, Vivienne Konuk http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2022-03-15 2022-03-15 25 1 33–48 33–48 10.37725/mgmt.v25.5517 Tell Me Where You Belong, I Might Cite Your Work: Affiliation Origins, Legitimation Efforts, and the Citation of Team-Produced Research in Business and Management Scholarship https://management-aims.com/index.php/mgmt/article/view/4455 <p>Drawing from the country-of-origin literature, this study theorizes the effect of academic affiliation origins on the academic impact of knowledge produced by teams of researchers. Our econometric analysis employing more than 65,000 peer-reviewed articles published from 1997 to 2012 in business and management journals reveals that the higher the share of co-authors with peripheral affiliations (i.e. the proportion of authors in a research team not affiliated with a US or UK institution), the lower is the number of citations their articles receive on average. Despite the globalization of knowledge production, the results show that scholars’ geographic location still plays an influential role in knowledge diffusion processes, conditioning gains, or setbacks with respect to the academic impact of their work. We further show that scholars on the periphery of global scholarship can reduce this negative effect by developing ‘targeting’ and ‘framing’ legitimation efforts reflected in the composition of the team they are part of and in the positioning of the knowledge it produces.</p> Mustapha Belkhouja Hyungseok Yoon François Maon Copyright (c) 2022 Mustapha Belkhouja, Hyungseok (David) Yoon, François Maon http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2022-03-15 2022-03-15 25 1 49–65 49–65 10.37725/mgmt.v25.4455 My Own Book Review.
