The paper aims to realise the critical potential of the practice lens by contributing to the\ud development of a coherent set of methodologies for investigating work and\ud organisational activity. It does so by introducing and critically assessing the "interview\ud to the double" as a method to articulate and represent practice.\ud After briefly illustrating its history and usage, the paper analyses in depth the setting\ud generated by this unusual interview method. It argues that the nature of the encounter\ud produces narratives that are often morally connoted and idealised in character. As a\ud consequence the method is especially useful to capture the going concerns which orient\ud the conduct of the members and the normative and moral dimension of practice. The\ud paper also shows that because it mimics familiar instruction-giving discursive practices,\ud the method constitutes an effective textual device to convey this moral and normative\ud dimension in a way which remains faithful to its situated and contingent nature of\ud practice
