THE ROLE OF EMERGENT NETWORKS IN A PLANNED CHANGE OF ORGANIZATIONAL ROUTINES
Mantas Vilkas

ABSTRACT.The article explores the role of the emergent networks among members of organizational routines in the context of planned change. The multiple case study of 5 routines in the context of a planned change revealed that members of effectively transformed routines initiated more intense networking than members of ineffectively changed routines. Using theory building from cases approach it is proposed that emergent networks enable collective micro-processes of negotiation, adaptation and integration of planned change structures. This research contributes to the theory of routines by shedding light on collective nature of micro-processes of change that are responsible for transformation of routines in the context of a planned change.

KEYWORDS: routines, emergent networks, networking, planned change, change effectiveness.
