Authors: Malhotra, N

Abstract: In this chapter we focus on the role of power associated with micro-foundations of organizational hybridity. We develop a framework that illuminates how key sources of power based on Buchanan and Badham (2008) and French and Raven (1959) manifest at the level of everyday work practices. Using this framework, we draw on existing studies concerninghybridity in professional organizations to illustrate how different forms of power come into play when actors guided by different logicsengage inday to day professional work. Overall, we suggest that more attention to how micro level actors use different forms of power to support, hamper or alter different mechanisms to manage tensions among competing logicsin everyday work is critical to improving our understanding about the microfoundations of institutionalism.
