Organizational Discourse, Strategy and Change

The Organizational Discourse, Strategy and Change (ODSC) Group comprises a cluster of researchers at the University of Sydney Business School. The Group is associated with the International Centre for Research in Organizational Discourse, Strategy and Change (ICRODSC).

ICRODSC links international researchers who share an interest in developing and applying discourse methods to the study of organizations. It brings together researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds, provides a critical mass in research expertise, facilitates cross-disciplinary research, provides a banner for new research initiatives, provides contacts and support for doctoral students, and provides resources for workshops, studies, and other activities.

ICRODSC was launched in 2001 by four institutions - the University of Melbourne, the University of Sydney, King's College at the University of London, and McGill University. Since then, it has grown to include the following institutional partners: University of Melbourne; University of Sydney; Cardiff University; City University London; King's College, University of London; Lund University, Sweden; McGill University, Canada; Meiji University, Japan; Queen Mary, University of London; Texas A&M University; University of California; Judge Business School, University of Cambridge; University of Colorado; University of Leicester; VU University, Amsterdam

The group of researchers at the University of Sydney Business School share an interest with colleagues located at these other institutions in developing and applying discourse methods to the study of organizations.
