Routines, Strategies and Management

Routines, Strategies and Management

Engaging for Recurrent Creation ‘At the Edge’

Simon Grand

The dynamic interplay of routines, strategies and management allows companies to successfully move forward within their industries. This book contributes to a coherent conceptualization of strategy, organization and management from a practice perspective, identifying strategy as realized in the action. Simon Grand provides a theoretical framework and detailed exploration in the context of two attractive empirical cases. He discusses topics such as theorizing routine dynamics, managerial engagement and managing routines as strategies to provide a detailed exploration of the importance of organizational routines for strategy.

Chapter 2: Theorizing routine dynamics: a practice view

Simon Grand

Subjects: business and management, strategic management


We explore how much research on routines in relation to strategies can benefit from research on routine dynamics, which describes routines as practices and resources, enabling and restricting action, providing the basis for agency, while being mobilized and enacted through action, and as operating as generative systems, which shape continuity as well as innovation, stability as well as change.
