Collegialism

Discipline: Political Science

Non-managerial theory of organizational power.

Organizations and enterprises are most appropriately run by co-operative agreement amongst those directly involved.

Collegialism is particulary associated with the professions, and is in that sense a form of middle class guild socialism.

It is contrasted with managerialism, which recommends placing control in a core of specialists who are not directly involved in whatever task the organization or profession performs.
