Abstract

This conceptual article proposes the establishing of the position of a corporate jester to support
organizational change processes. The article focuses on the inevitable transformations
companies have to go through, given the diversification and pluralization of the workforce. The corporate jester theoretically is framed as part of an organizational `comical artifact staging´, that by utilizing humor as an element of organizational change, experiences more openness and less resistance than more educative tools.
