The Writing Across the Curriculum
Common sense says that a routine by definition is fixed, unchanging. That commonsense view of routine held in the field of organizational science until fairly recently, when researchers such as Pentland and Reuter (1994) pointed out that people perform routines and that people have agency. Because people, as Feldman (2000) writes, “think and feel and care” (p. 614), routines change. Pentland and Feldman (2005) put it this way: “Routines are continuously emerging systems with internal structures and dynamics. The internal structure of a routine can produce a wide range of different outcomes on the continuum between ‘very stable’ and ‘constantly changing,’ depending on the circumstances” (pp. 794–795).
