  • • 3 recollections from the last lecture: Critical
    Management Studies?
    • Introduction to Institutional Theories
    – More very unfamiliar terminology; again as
    “currency” ie short-hand to name ideas.

    • Next week: Neo-institutional theory
    Foundations for Institutional Theory
    • Institutional theory seeks to understand how organisations
    create stable environments in which to operate
    – Why? What’s the big deal about stability?
    • It is related to ideas of bureaucracy, control,
    accountability, efficient use of resources and effective
    processes to achieve organisational goals.
    – Essential for many public needs: Hospitals, schools, universities,
    numerous government services and agencies (eg Police,
    Ambulance, Fire-fighters, transport).
    • But before we get started we need to see what we will be
    investigating - all of it!!
    View the whole elephant
    • Husserl used to argue that you had to know the
    whole before you could understand the
    particular; and particulars are only useful if they
    lead you to better understanding of the whole.
    – Read that again and think of examples.
    • Over the next two lectures we examine the
    elephant that is the institutional approach to
    understanding organisations and management.
    • Being recognised as warranting power/
    • Legitimacy is sought
    – Regulatively (meeting laws, regulations)
    – Cognitively (makes sense, logical)
    – Normatively (to acceptable moral and ethical standards)
    – Economically (at acceptable/competitive costs) (drawing
    on Scott 2008).
    Broad description of the elephant
    • Institutions are observed in these stages:
    – Objectification (we name them),
    – Habituation (developing routines)
    – Institutionalisation (we intrinsically value them),
    – Decay.
    • This is a big, powerful, ill controlled and messy
    Feeling the messy details: terms
    • In the first lecture we will cover how
    institutionalism explains stability.
    • In doing so we will select several of the following
    characteristics of institutional theory
    – institutionalisation,
    – institution,
    – legitimacy,
    – institutional logic,
    – field,
    – contextual constraints,
    – provinces of meaning,
    – archetypes and
    – isomorphism.
    – OK?
    The smelly details: more smells later 
    • In the second lecture we will cover how
    institutionalism explains change and how a CEO
    can use this.
    • In doing so we will explain reflexivity, interests,
    value commitments, power dependencies,
    capability, institutional work and examine an
    empirical analysis of an institutional change
    • Before all that it's important to recognise what
    we are looking for .
