Individuals cannot 'step out' of their lifeworld, but they can "free themselves from the fetters of habitual concrete forms of life". How this can be achieved may be said to be the problem we focus on in this book. The task is finding rational solutions to common problems in organizations. Consider a two-level conception of organization. Such a model of organization will contain: (1) 'system', which represents the financial and profit-oriented measurements and information requirements that follow Control through practice and understanding 33 from the view of the organization as a monological, hierarchically coordinated production unit; and (2) 'lifeworld' which represents daily implementation of abstract plans into operative processes in physical time and space situations with their technical, social and practical urgencies.
Such an approach to rationality is not unproblematic. It is too abstract in the sense that it does not allow much differentiation, and it is too narrow in the sense that it should deal with other expressions than those of truth and efficiency. There is more to it than this. Who is, for example, to judge what is 'better' in the defence against criticism? Take the simplest form of rationality. A person, A, makes a claim, p, which states that if x is done than y will o c c u r - that is descriptively valid.
We live by our images of how things are. Steering organizations by budget control is an activity that is overburdened with false images. This is especially true in the public sector where the dream of controlling through tough budget decisions survives in spite of repeated exposure to concrete evidence of failure. In the public sector there are opposition parties to scrutinize behaviour and publicize failures, but in large corporations there is no such opposition. Leadership and the impetus of decisions are assumed undercut by the opposition pointing out weaknesses in decisions.
