Greve H., Hayagreeva R. (2014). History and the Present: Institutional Legacies in Communities of Organizations Research in Organizational Behavior, 34, pp. 27-41.
An important source of organizational variation in communities is institutional legacies: institutions that persist and affect the community over long periods of time.Institutional legacies have received attention in the past, but recently there has been increased interest in their origins and effects.The authors examine three carriers of institutional legacies—legal structures, voluntary organizations, and intra-community relations—and show some work on each of these carriers.The authors discuss how research on institutional legacies presents a particular challenge in causal identification, but they also offer potentially viable solutions to this challenge.Finally, the authors outline extensions of research on institutional legacies through work that documents how the interrelationships between community organizations and businesses are shaped by institutional legacies and in turn contribute to their evolution.
