Abstract

Previous studies have not thoroughly examined the measures managers have taken to avoid conflicts with actors who have supported the past rhetorical history in transitioning from the old to the new rhetorical account in an organization. This paper examines the history of Sony's practice of rhetorical history as a case study. This case study shows that “historical distancing,” the management's action of not intervening in the rhetorical history developed in the past, is essential to avoid conflicts.
