Thesis working title

The multimodality of strategy work: How practices of materiality and discourse combine in the strategy process

This research adopts a multimodal lens to explore how materiality and discourse combine in the strategy process. Multimodality recognises and embraces the semiocity of strategy work and therefore can provide insight into the strategy-materiality nexus by demonstrating how different modes of materiality combine in strategy work. This research continues the tradition of integrating discursive scholarship with the theoretical domain of sociomateriality. The approach addresses the underlying problem of how actors discursively use and react to strategy materials such that they facilitate group sensemaking and discourse-crafting organisational activities.
