Abstract:

This chapter is about the institutionalization of organizational change. It is concerned with the persistence of organizational change. Lewin 1951 describes change in terms of three processes unfreezing, moving, and refreezing. Institutionalization is concerned with the process of refreezing. After a new policy or program is introduced into an organization, we plan to focus on factors that affect its persistence. A whole series of questions underlies this problem statement What does institutionalization or persistence mean How do we describe different degrees of institutionalization or persistence mean How do we describe different degrees of institutionalization What critical processes affect institutionalization What are the critical predictors These questions serve to organize this discussion.
