Abstract

Offers a deconstructive reading of the Nordstrom Employee Handbook. The purpose of the reading is to demonstrate how this document serves as a representational sign of postmodern ideas about power and organizing capable of encouraging responsible, highly individualized, organizational cultural practices. Discusses implications of the postmodern for organizational theory and research.
