In this lecture, I explore the meaning and significance of craft for the self-understanding and development of organizational research. The construct of craft is situated in the context of its displacement by modernisation, as a practice characterized by skills that elude standardization and routinization. Consideration of research-as-craft, we suggest, speaks to, and supports, a distinctive – imaginative, embodied and being-centred – aspect and mode of management and organizational research. In unsettling and subverting knower/known and mind/body dualisms, ‘craftiness’ is of ethical and political, as well as methodological, significance.
