Institutional logics on the ground

This study explores institutional logics in organizational decision making. Findings suggest that actors translate logics into concrete stories, narrated through negotiation between narrator and audience over what logic is relevant, and how different logics implicate how to describe, evaluate and react to events. Decisions are reached based upon a complex interface between political resources, poetical devices, the role the stories assign to narrator and audience, and the fit with the institutional logic the story builds upon.
