Accomplishments in consultancy work: ambiguity and distribution of praise and blame

Forskningsoutput: Kapitel i bok/rapport/Conference proceedingKapitel samlingsverk

Abstract

This chapter addresses identity constructions in the context of consultant-client relations in consultancy work. The focus is on how consultants and client managers use the image of each other as negative mirrors of themselves, making collaboration tension-ridden and complicated. In particular we emphasize identity dynamics around the attribution of credit and blame, drawing attention to the evaluatory and moral aspects of identity constructions in ambiguous, boundary-spanning work contexts.
