Abstract and Keywords

All forms of organization are forms of organization of social relations. All social relations involve power relations. Power is evident in these relations as relations not only of ownership and control but also of structuration and design. These relations may take many forms. They may be embodied as financial capital, intellectual capital, or social capital, for instance. Such relations are likely to be both differentially distributed and socially constructed as well as existing in differential demand in differentiated markets. Power is also evident in the various forms of knowledge that constitute, structure, and shape these markets and organizations. It is these power/knowledge relations that this article addresses. The aim of this article is to address analytically the methods of managing and organizing, which members of various organizational bodies and communities find conventional to use.

Keywords: organization, social relations, power, financial capital, intellectual capital, social capital
