Five key words: Social Construction, Scandinavian Airlines, SAS, Organizational Development, Change Management
Purpose: Explore the socially constructed reality found among employees of SGS at Malmö Airport with respect to the preparatory stage of Strategy 2011 Change Program
Methodology: Abductive approach is taken following a postmodernist, poststructuralist meta-theoretical frame of reference
Theoretical perspective: Social construction is explored as a process interconnecting discourse, understanding and identity. Empirical foundation: Empirical sources include internal corporate text communications as well as print media. Face-to-face interviews with organizational members from management, union and worker levels of the organization were also conducted. Conclusion: Though the value is apparent in managing through an interpretive sense, findings illustrate the difficulty in doing so, based on the ambiguous nature of meaning making in management.
