Article
This Special Issue on “Justice enactment ‐ research on doing justice in organizations” was developed to address questions relating to the prerequisites and conditions for and processes and outcomes of doing and enacting justice in organizations. In this editorial, we briefly introduce the collection of the seven empirical papers included in this Sp...
Article
This paper examines the determinants of employees' affective commitment to change in the context of M&As. Based on the group engagement model (Tyler & Blader, 2000, 2003), we predicted that organizational identification with the newly formed organization mediates the positive impact of employees’ overall justice judgments and perceived change favor...

Building on fairness heuristic theory and dual-process theories of cognition, we examine individuals' perceptions of phase shifting. We define phase shifting as an individual perception that triggers a shift from type 1 to type 2 cognitive processes resulting in the reevaluation of justice judgments. In a longitudinal study of a merger, we empirica...

This study examines the influence of a dimension of a strategic organizational change context—namely informational distance—on employees’ justice expectations and their behavioral intentions toward the change. Drawing on research from organizational justice and from construal level theory, we hypothesize that informational distance, i.e., the exten...

This article explores the practice of spin doctoring through the point of view of a practitioner and possible differences between France and America in that practice. We do so by reporting and analyzing an exclusive interview with famous French spin doctor Jacques Séguéla, VP of Havas, one of the world's largest advertising and communications group...
Article
Although employees' willingness to cooperate is acknowledged as a critical success factor for post-M&A (merger-and-acquisition) integration, we still know little about the psychological mechanisms that lie beneath employees' cooperative attitudes and behaviors in this context. Building on the premises of fairness heuristic theory, this longitudinal...
Article
Project-based organizations (PBOs) have become a widespread form of organizations, ideally suited to deal with unstable and dynamic environments. However, PBOs inherently incorporate the conflicting needs of, on the one hand, the temporary nature of projects and on the other hand, the more permanent organizational setting that defends long-term dev...
Article
Developing teams capable of completing projects in extreme situations is becoming a major challenge for a growing number of organizations. The notion of collective competence is increasingly being seen as a vital precondition for the success of project teams, particularly in extreme environments. However, we still know little about the ingredients...
Chapter
The aim of this contribution is to underline the role played by the entourage of the top executive, which is key to his achievement. Beyond his close colleagues, the members of the executive committee and his professional networks, we shall see the extent to which top executives assemble an entourage of loyal people who contribute to their effectiv...

Based on an empirical study of the Air France/KLM combination, our results suggest that to o...

Article
This article focuses on the role of justice and exemplarity perceptions on top executives' reactions to change. Drawing on extensive interview material from French top managers facing a requirement for change, the empirical analysis sheds light upon the importance of procedural justice and exemplarity in mitigating negative reactions to change. The...
