Example text

The validity of this position becomes questionable when posed in terms of the accumulation of skills by participants. For example, the observation that ‘these people become experienced in effective group functioning. They know what leadership involves… The members will help by performing leadership functions’ (Likert, 1984:308, emphasis added) may be taken as indication of some spread of ‘leadership’ between ordinary group members irrespective of the existence of a nominal group leader. Similarly the observation that ‘hierarchical status acts as a strong deterrent on the willingness of group members to speak up’ (Likert and Likert, 1976:33) leads Likert to acknowledge the usefulness of de-emphasising status differentials.

Clearly class differences between participants are a part of the dynamics of organisation, but it is argued that essentially it is differences in familiarity with the ideology of the women’s movement and in the nature or extent of skills and knowledge1 which require negotiation between participants in these examples of attempts to create non-hierarchical organisation. The action critique and negotiated order A number of writers (for example, Benson, 1977, Giddens, 1976, Perrow, 1978) have pointed to the convergence of Marxism and The understanding of organisation 47 interactionism in their (action) critique of approaches which assume and depict a singular organisational reality.

As such, case material of women organising collectively provides an appropriate context through which to explore the dimensions of non-hierarchical organisation and to develop a theoretical understanding of the processes which characterise organising activity in situations where there is a commitment to egalitarian values. So far we have seen how women organising have identified and implemented strategies to reduce differentials between participants through skill sharing, task rotation and attention to within-group processes, how they have sought to attract and maintain resources, create a sense of direction and identity, and to manage relationships with others who do not necessarily share their values.
