Routines are pervasive processes that coordinate people’s efforts and enable
them to get work done.  Though often associated with inertia, recent
research focuses on the generative capacity and potential for improvisation
as routines are enacted in social setting.  Seeing routines as generative
systems clarifies their role in producing both stability and change and
enriches our ability to manage these processes. In this presentation I
explore some conceptual confusions that have made it difficult to perceive
routines as generative systems, discuss the internal dynamics of routines
and explore some of the potential methodological and practical implications.


Martha S. Feldman is a Professor in the Planning, Policy and Design
Department and the Johnson Chair for Civic Governance and Public Management
in the School of Social Ecology at the University of California, Irvine.
She holds courtesy appointments in Political Science, Business, and
Sociology.  Her recent work uses and extends practice theory to understand
the role of organizational routines in organizational learning and
adaptation.  Her work in public management builds on this interest and
focuses on inclusive management as a set of practices that help to create
positive resourcing cycles.  Her work in qualitative methods has focused
primarily on developing techniques for analyzing context-dependent
phenomena.  Her publications have appeared in Administrative Science
Quarterly, Governance, Organization Science, Public Administration Review
and elsewhere.  She is a senior editor at Organization Science and also
serves on the editorial boards of the Advances in Organization Studies ,
Business Research, International Public Management Journal, Journal of
Management Studies and Organization Studies.  She received her PhD in
Political Science from Stanford University in 1983.  Additional information
