Dilemmas of power, discrimination, and diversity

As in earlier chapters, you are invited to explore these concepts as a benchmarking

exercise, using your working definitions (Exercise 8.1).

In the previous chapter, business strategy was shown to have retained assumptions drawing

on the DRM. In this chapter dilemmas of power and diversity are examined. These

concepts and their dilemmas have not been easily addressed through approaches based on

the DRM. Here we draw on alternative approaches. We concentrate on critical theory, and

show its relationship to approaches developed within the related map of postmodernism.
