Abstract

This paper examines the discursive enactment of strategizing in a complex, multi-organizational, public sector strategic arena, sculpted by structural and cultural constraints, and the power games inherent to hegemonic contestation from the boardroom to the boundary of the organizational field. It combines Archerian critical realism with Fairclough’s dialectical-relational approach to critical discourse analysis to develop a more holistic understanding of the performative relationship between talk and action in strategizing. In doing so, it defines the semiotic scaffolding of the situational logic that manifests within the strategic arena, to reveal the role of discourse in the construction and mobilization of ensuing agency, and thus how stakeholders’ expectations are addressed—or discounted—in strategy formation.
