institutional work is about action, not outcomes, and much we can identify three forms of agency in institutional studies, each of which operates in institution building, maintenance, and disruption.

institutional work is about action, not outcomes, and much. institutional work may go on that does not lead to desired. outcomes or that has unintended consequences. People are. constantly doing things to build, sustain, and tear down. institutions, and we should be interested in their actions, rather than in whether they succeed. we can identify three forms of agency in institutional studies, each of which operates in institution building, maintenance, and disruption. Iterative agency refers to small-scale. decisions that can reinforce institutions or move them in a. new direction, such as choosing one institutionalized practice.

Academic interest in institutional studies of organization has a long history, starting .

Academic interest in institutional studies of organization has a long history, starting with classical works of Max Weber, Philip Selznick, et. in the late 1940s. It thrusts on importance of agency in actors and attempts to resolve the paradox of embedded agency: how can actors change institutions if their actions, intentions, are constrained by the same institution which they wish to change (Holm, 1995; and Seo and Creed, 2002). Lawrence and Suddaby (2006) refer to this as institutional work, "the purposive action of individual and organization aimed at creating, maintaining and disrupting institutions" (p. 215).

The 'institutional' approach to organizational research has shown how enduring features of social life - such as marriage and bureaucracy - act as mechanisms of social control. Such approaches have traditionally focused attention on the relationships between organizations and the fields in which they operate, providing strong accounts of the processes through which institutions govern action. In contrast, the study of institutional work reorients these traditional concerns, shifting the focus to understanding how action affects institutions. This book sets a research agenda within the field of institutional work by analyzing the ways in which individuals, groups, and organizations work to create, maintain, and disrupt the institutions that structure their lives. Through a series of essays and case studies, it explores the conceptual core of institutional work, identifies institutional work strategies, provides exemplars for future empirical research, and embeds the concept within broader sociological debates and ideas.
