dc.description.abstract The objective of the research is to explore the practice of business theatre as a particular way of doing management consulting. My aim is to make sense how business theatre is done at the intersection of management consulting and participatory theatre. The point of the study is to build insight of business theatre by combining theories from management consulting and theatre through the doing perspective and the concepts of practice, practitioner and praxis. The data for the study is constructed by conducting interviews and by observing. Following the narrative research tradition, I have constructed an analysis in the form of a narrative inspired by ethnographical drama. The narrative is a way to tell the story of how business theatre is done and who are the practitioners involved, in this way describing and interpreting the practice of business theatre. Based on the findings, management consulting is done with theatre by creating a space where the participants can actively take part in jointly constructing solutions to the organizational challenges. Also, dramatizing everyday organizational life with professional actors the routinized way of doing can be made visible. Moreover, theatre creates a space where alternative ways of doing can be tried out then and there within the safety of playfulness. From the practice-based doing perspective, when mirroring organizational life the organization is not only being described, yet it is constructed in the interaction. en
