Habits: Theoretical Foundations and a Conceptual Framework on a Managerial Trap and Chance

Katarzyna Piórkowska


The overarching aim of the paper is to incorporate the micro-foundations perspective in strategic management and offering possibilities to bridge the macro–micro divide, to review the concept of habits, as well as to propose research findings and directions in terms of further exploring the habit construct and its impact on higher epistemological level phenomena (for instance organizational routines, which is a domain inherently multilevel in nature). To realize this aim, the following sections have been developed: habits’ origins, habits – cognitive constellations, interrelationships between habits and mental representations, intentions,habits and organizational routines, and habits and routines linkages with adaptation. The conclusions that have been made support recent and current studies linking the level of individual heterogeneous agents with the level of macro (organizational) outcomes.
