Abstract: There is a new trend towards the inclusion of lower-level employees in strategy making. Yet, such participation is challenging as lower-level employees typically lack the resources for participation, such as requisite strategy knowledge. Drawing on a practice-theoretical perspective on resources and data from a longitudinal, ethnographic case study of a participative strategy process in a large insurance company, we examine the dynamics of participation of lower-level employees. In particular, we identify a recursive relation between participation and the enactment of resources. With this finding we contribute to the understanding of participation over time, extending existing research on the resources of participation.
