TD - a collective story is being shaped and co-constructed among the network of transorganizational participants. Each stakeholder is negotiating the meaning of the collective story. Each story is a fragment, a perspective on the whole. Some are problem based, issue based, solution based or just fantasy based. Each is a candidate to become the dominant collective story (Boje, 1979, 1981).
Story - A telling of a past or anticipated event brought into the present through oral or written performance.
Collective Story - A story of the past or anticipated future that is negotiated and co-constructed among a wider community (Boje & Wolfe, 1989).
Transorganizational Networking – Planned change in the collective relationships of a variety of stakeholders to accomplish something beyond the capability of any single organization or individual (e.g. Culbert et. al., 1972).
Networking – Building bridges of similarity and association among a set of people and their organizations in order to share resources and solve problems.
Stakeholder – Person, tree, or organization who is affected by what the organization is doing or intending to do ("Have a stake in") - Based upon Mason & Mitroff's work.
TD1 – Type One Transorganization Network – Seeks to recombine the
community or global division of labor such that fragments of the self,
social, and market can put the status quo back together (Boje, 1999: 14-189).
TD2 – Type Two Transorganization Network – Seeks to resist or modify the behavior of TD1 networks by forming an alternative TD2 network to conduct campaigns of resistance and power realignment (Boje, 1999: 14-18).
