Abstract : The concept of institutionalization, which concerns the process by which organizational change is sustained, is examined. Basic definitional attributes and a two-phase model of institutionalization are presented. Then factors in the literature which affect the degree of institutionalization are reviewed and related to the model. Some of the factors include: the organization's reward system, transmission mechanisms, group forces, diffusion processes, etc. (Author)
