The paper critically reviews the intentional model of power in organizational management from seven different perspectives. It summarizes some of the most debated issues within political science over the recent decades in relation to an intentional understanding of the concept of power. We claim that these issues are also relevant within organizational management and strategy studies, and we point, in particular, to two contemporary research areas, in which the intentional concept of power seems inadequate to further push the research agenda.
