    This article develops a dialogic perspective on practising and knowing management. It builds on prior work which has considered the nature of management research as well as the relationship between those who research organizations and those that manage them. The article argues that practising and knowing are co-constitutive, dialogic processes and that viewing the process in this way helps move beyond views of knowledge production and consumption which centre on translation between communities. The article sheds new light on the nature of research relationships by presenting two ways of mapping the dynamics of these relationships in terms of dialogue. [ABSTRACT FROM PUBLISHER]
