In the last years, organizational studies have developed a growing interest about institutionalization processes of new organizational forms, in order to understand the ways trough which innovative organizations, inter-organizational networks or organizing processes become stable and legitimized. The aim of this paper is to underline the potentialities of the action-nets approach (Czarniawska, 2004) in the study of institutionalization processes of innovative organizing forms. Firstly, the article focuses on the concept of action-nets, reporting two studies (Odds, 2005; Czarniawska, 2009) which have reconstructed the institutionalization processes of the same organizational form: The London School of Economics. Secondly, it underlines the innovations brought by action-nets approach in front of new institutionalism, the main current of studies that has contributed to understand the institutionalization’s dynamics of new organizational forms. Finally, it concerns the development perspectives of action-nets, suggesting some useful directions to refine the theoretical and conceptual tools of this approach.
Keywords: Action-nets, institutional theory, institutionalization, new organizational forms.
