This lively guide showcasing original and carefully curated research illustrates the dynamic relationship between discourse and organizational psychology. It maps the origins and development of discursive approaches in the field of organizational psychology and provides a timely review of the challenges that may confront researchers in the years to come, thereby charting the current and future boundaries of the field.

A Guide to Discursive Organizational Psychology delineates a potential research agenda for discursive organizational psychology. Contributions include empirically rich discussions of both traditional and widely studied topics such as resistance to change, inclusion and exclusion, participation, multi-stakeholder collaboration and diversity management, as well as newer research topics such as language negotiations, work time arrangements, technology development and discourse as intervention. Discursive devices for addressing these phenomena include interpretive repertoires, modes of ordering, rhetorical strategies and sense-making narratives.

This timely book will serve as a guide for students or researchers who are new to discourse analysis in the field of organization and management studies, and provide new perspective to anyone seeking to enhance their conceptual and methodological understanding of the field. It marks a central reference point for anyone interested in the intersection of discursive approaches and organizational psychological phenomena.
