The Third Way: theorising excess as a productive organisational location lens
This paper demonstrates that organisations continue to be dominated by modernist managerial approaches to knowledge that lead to disembodied representations of daily life both in terms of identity politics and company practices and processes.

The latter is identified as capable of naming the complex, embodied, dynamic, intricate, contradictory, ambiguous realm we inhabit in the organisation and shown to be productive for both employers and employees.
