In this paper, we propose an understanding of what personnel professionals consume when they adopt black-box management initiatives (Scarbrough, 1995; Wilson, 1992). Second, we explore the way in which professional associations and, hence, institutional actors pursue their own professional projects (Abbott, 1988) within a context of political legitimacies and illegitimacies. Thus, in a double move, we seek to explore the linkages between managerial methods used by institutions to increase their jurisdiction or their authority to speak (Foucault, 1972) and the processes of isomorphism.
