Fully revised and refined, this new edition of Institutional Theory and Organizational Change considers the developments in the field of institutional organization theory over the past decade. With each chapter being significantly updated, the book explains what the institutional organization approach means by bringing special attention to how the institutional environment is made up and how organizations are governed by it.

Throughout the book, Staffan Furusten also brings attention to core concepts and arguments within institutional theory and presents them in an easily tangible model for understanding institutional pressure on organizations. New analysis featured in the book includes organizing beyond management and markets, organizational change through re-contextualization and institutional pressure through institutional elements. The examples presented in the book can be used as a navigation tool for additional learning about what the institutional environment consists of and what organizations can do to handle institutional demands.

The second edition of this book is a lucid introduction to contemporary institutional organizational analysis and will be a key resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students in critical management studies, organizational studies, as well as managers and policy makers.
Critical Acclaim
‘In this impressive new edition of his well-received book, Staffan Furusten extends his analysis of the impact of institutional environments on contemporary organizations. He considers not only the market forces emphasized in traditional theories, but also crystallized macro- and meso- structures, such as legal arrangements. And he reviews the impact of less-codified ideological and cultural frames that modify and enlarge organizations. The book is a real contribution to the institutional analyses central to contemporary thought, as both an intellectual synthesis and a useful text.’
– John W. Meyer, Professor of Sociology, Emeritus, Stanford University, US
