Orga­niza­t­ional routines have drawn much atten­tion in several streams of rese­arch. However, empi­rical rese­arch on orga­niza­t­ional routines is compli­cated by the fact that there are still diffe­rent ideas in the lite­ra­ture on what orga­niza­t­ional routines are, and how to opera­tio­na­lize them. Taking into account rese­arch on habits, the indi­vi­dual-­level equi­va­lent of orga­niza­t­ional routines, in this talk I take stock of ways of opera­tio­na­li­zing habits and orga­niza­t­ional routines, to explore oppor­tu­nities for empi­rical rese­arch that involves orga­niza­t­ional routines.


Markus C. Becker is Professor at the Stra­tegic Orga­niza­tion Design unit (www.sod-­re­se­, Univer­sity of Southern Denmark, and affi­liated with the Danish Insti­tute for Advanced Study (http://danis­ His rese­arch focuses on how orga­niza­t­ions adapt and learn, espe­cially if work in orga­niza­t­ions is to some degree accom­plished through orga­niza­t­ional routines. For instance, he is parti­cu­larly inte­rested in the role of orga­niza­t­ional routines in orga­niza­t­ional adap­ta­tion. He is member of the Edito­rial Review Board of Orga­niza­tion Science. His work has appeared in jour­nals such as Orga­niza­tion Science and the Stra­tegic Manage­ment Journal, among others.
