Knowledge Dynamics and Management Control: A Practice-based Approach

What are the dynamics of knowledge during controlling practices? This research aims to analyze the nature of knowledge dynamics during controlling practices. Pierre Bourdieu’s praxeology provides a fruitful framework to understand the role and the interactions between knowledge and practice. Habitus, a set of dispositions for action, offers a dynamic view of knowledge, which is permanently used, constructed and restructured during practice and for practice. This framework is mobilized through an empirical case study. It highlights knowledge dynamics involved in controlling practices: mapping the fi eld, assigning value to practice, developing dispositions and building causal relationship on action.
