This introduction to the first volume of Perspectives on Process Organization Studies first explores the relationship between process and sensemaking, offering a brief genealogy of process thinking in order to locate sensemaking as it is conceived in organization studies. It suggest four distinctions which have unfolded over the centuries and through which we can understand sensemaking as an integral part of organization as process. Second, it introduces the papers that make up the volume. These include three pieces exploring organization process theorizing from the perspectives of philosophy, psychology, and communication, three papers from long-standing process organizing scholars, and five contributions representing new empirical or conceptual explorations of a variety of different organizational processes, including learning, change, and sensemaking. Together, the collection portrays the polyphony that characterizes Process Organization Studies, offering perspectives from different disciplines and insights from diverse theoretical traditions and contexts.
