Abstract

This article seeks to offer some contributions to the debate around the development of the field of organization studies in Chile. We trace the history of this field from its inception in the global north through its influence and shiftings around Latin America, recording the milestones of organizational thought in Chile. In this context, the paper provides opinions from various scholars, researchers and organizational consultants through a generative dialogue using the world cafe methodology. From a thematic content analysis, the results shed light on the major challenges around the establishment of a field such as organization studies in Chile, whose identity remains unclear: The fragmentation of disciplines, the field's ambiguity and its conflicting rationalities.
