Sammanfattning

Meetings are increasingly recognized as “the essential mechanism through which organizations create and maintain the practical activity of organizing” (Boden 1994: 81). If organization is constituted through communication, it is almost trivial to state that meetings contribute to this constitutive process. But it is not equally clear to what extent the reverse conclusion applies: does the failure of a meeting imply the failure of the organization? The question is easier to answer when we ask about a specific organizing process instead of the organization as a whole. A project failed project meeting may well imply the end of the project, a failed stakeholder meeting may force the organization to start its outreach work from scratch, and an unresolved stalemate in a committee meeting probably means that the long awaited report will be further delayed or may never be delivered. What, then, prevents meetings from breaking down? How do participants interact to secure the stability and continuity of their meeting?
