Example text

The general point of carrying out a ‘survey’, in the way this is done during the first part of a dialogue conference, is not primarily to evince many new problems in relation to what is already known, but rather to clear the ground so that the dialogue conference can facilitate a certain redistribution of the problems, in terms of their place and significance in the company’s discourses. When discussions about the factory’s problems are removed from the time-honored cooperative and negotiation bodies; when they are swept from under the carpets in all the departments and sections in the company and are presented in one forum, side by side in plenary in such a way that they constitute a whole; then new patterns can emerge.
