Research requires a perspective
- Goal: enhancing the function of the main concern — multibake -> looking at productivity and profit of the company. make adjustments after seeing what the problem is. everything else is a variable (e.g. people). goal = efficiency and productivity

- Understanding culture
- Outlook: academic — understanding the way organizational behaviours operate…
- Focus is power
- Is that power legitimate – Hilary (Multi-Bake) imposing her power on the workers.
- Leah (girl who resigned) is an informal source of power — she organizes shit and so on – you don’t respect the boss, people don’t work hard. if they share the same goals, the Organization will improve ( e.g. stakeholder theory).
- Cecil has another form of power
- Outlook: activist, moralist
