MacGillivray publishes in innovative journal


The Challenging Organisations and Society.reflective hybrids (COS) journal bills itself as: "the first journal to be dedicated to the rapidly growing requirements of reflective hybrids in our complex organizations and society of the 21st century."

The editors are interested in boundary-spanning work familiar to many of us at Royal Roads: first and third person writing, connecting theory and practice, and striving for a whole greater than the sum of its parts. As one of the editors puts it: "authors explore how they conceptualize and use a reflective hybrid approach to better understand self, organizations, and society to become more effective in their professional practices."

Alice MacGllivray--an associate faculty member who works with several RRU programs-has just had a paper accepted, titled, "Consulting on the Edge: Use of strategies rooted in nature," which explores the use of hybrid vigour, mutualism and the edge-effect for positive deviance work in organizations.
