Felin, Teppo, Foss, Nicolai J., Heimeriks, Koen H. and Madsen, Tammy L. (2012) Microfoundations of Routines and Capabilities: Individuals, Processes and Structure. Journal of Management Studies, 49 (8). pp. 1351-1374.

Abstract

This article introduces the Special Issue and discusses the microfoundations of routines and capabilities, including why a microfoundations view is needed and how it may inform work on organizational and competitive heterogeneity. Building on extant research, we identify three primary categories of micro-level components underlying routines and capabilities: individuals, social processes, and structure. We discuss how these components, and their interactions, may affect routines and capabilities. In doing so, we outline a research agenda for advancing the field's understanding of the microfoundations of routines and capabilities.
