Hi

Context: "Trist and Bamforth found that underground miners had developed a virtually hierarchy-free way of organizing work and in mediating relationships between members. [here at the end of the sentence there is a superscript reference number 38 in the original]
Organisation Theory:Concepts and Cases By Stephen P. Robbins/Neil Barnwell, page 520.

The above can be paraphrased as:

Trist and Bamforth found that underground miners had developed a virtually hierarchy-free way of organizing work and had developed a virtually hierarchy-free way in mediating relationships between members.

Right?

Thanks

    Yes. But the use of "in" before "mediating" sounds odd, used with "way". I'd have expected to see the "of" before "organizing" applied to "mediating relationships" as well.
