Abstract

Alvesson and Willmotts’ statement within their 1996 book “Making Sense of Management” is widely discussed. The paper illustrates two different management approaches while focusing on Modernism and Rationality as well as Interpretivism and Subjectivity. Critical Management Theory is placed within the context of and a discussion about issues such as “Organisational Culture”, “The Role of the Manager” and “Emancipation”. Finally, the need for an appropriate open-minded thinking approach in order to deal and cope with upcoming future challenges due to an increasing complexity and fundamental changes within the management processes is emphasised
