Managerial education and managerial research are still deeply emplaced and emplacing phenomena. They are expected to be emplaced somewhere, in bounded space-times and in the powerful subjectivities of students and colleagues, awaiting their expression and expansion. This constitutes a strange extensive continuum which remains the heart of academic work. In this provocative essay, we invite organization scholars to de-place managerial phenomena and to become processual. We use one-block auto-ethnographic vignettes to show that existentiality matters and can lead to different life paths, in particular processual ones. In a final discussion, we offer a manifesto for those interested in cultivating processuality in their work as teachers and academics.
