The contradictions of CRM: A critical lens on call centres
University of Salford.
2006 (English)In: Information and organization, ISSN 1471-7727, E-ISSN 1873-7919, Vol. 16, no 2, p. 143-168Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This paper aims to explore the contradictions of CRM systems and their use in call centres and in doing so contribute to the literature on critical information systems research. By invoking a critical perspective our analysis shows significant contradictions between system objectives and outcomes in practice. With reference to the work of Pierre Bourdieu, a sociologist and critical social theorist, we highlight the powerful theoretical lens that his work can provide for information systems researchers. Using an empirical study which draws upon Bourdieu's key concepts of field, habitus, logic of practice and symbolic violence, we illustrate how these processes of contradiction operate at the local level in the context of the field.
