The notion of ?researcher collaboration? typically refers to the relationship between researchers and their participants, case site, or funding organization (Engstrom, 1984; Katz and Martin, 1997). Less commonly discussed, though no less important for the process and outcome of research, is the relationship between researchers. Given the recent ?reflexive turn? in research methodology ? and critical management (CM) research in particular (Alvesson et al., 2008; Linstead, 1994) ? it is perhaps surprising that more attention has not been paid to the role of inter-researcher relations in framing, shaping and producing research (Wray-Bliss, 2003). This is also curious since so much of our research is focused on the working relationships of others, and on power relations. In failing to evaluate our own, often hierarchical relationships (Rogers-Dillon, 2005) we fail to be critical or reflexive about, and in, our research.
