Abstract [en]

In management control, it almost goes without saying that contemporary organizations need far more complex logics and organizational control mechanisms than the once dominant bureaucratic control regime could offer. Today, contemporary organizations must cope with uncertain situations inherent, for instance, in innovation processes, organizational learning, professional services, knowledge creation, temporary forms of work, communities of practice, and cross-boundary organizations. All in all, however, they are still confronted with the resilience of the bureaucratic control regime, de-personalized control relations and de-contextualized management systems for monitoring global standardized routines. This paper works therefore further on the question how management control can overcome the classical notion of control which changes when systems are undetermined and when managerial questions are principally undecidable. The paper does it by exploring the dialectic of control (Giddens) to further discover novel directions for research in the field.
