Ewa Stańczyk-Hugiet , Katarzyna Piórkowska , Sylwia Stańczyk


The aim of this paper is to provide a conceptual scheme concerning intra-organizational determinants of primary selection. The authors present the evolutionary theory as appropriate background for the research approach. Consequently, this paper, stressing the importance of selection mechanism, reviews evolutionary achievements. There is also presented the review of routine approaches, as routines constitute the object of selection. Then, authors provide the proposition based on the theoretical review concerning the role of managerial and cultural selectors in organizational evolution, especially in the process of routines selection. This paper contributes to the body of research on the routines, evolutionary theory, behavioural and cultural stream of research. Thus, it explores the evolutionary approach from the perspective of primary selection and its determinants. The authors provide an extension to the selection logic as for behavioural and cultural determinants of primary selection. Due to practitioners, they are recommended to consider personal behavioural characteristics and cultural ones as either hindrance or enablers of changes
