Sammanfattning

There is an increasing interest in the application of Structuration Theory in the
fields of management and organization studies. Based upon a thorough literature
review, we have come up with a data-set to assess how Structuration Theory
has been used in empirical research. We use three key concepts of this theory (duality of structure, knowledgeability, and time-space) as sensitizing concepts
for our analysis. We conclude that the greatest potential of Structuration Theory
for management and organization studies is to view it as a process theory that
offers a distinct building block for explaining intra and interorganizational
change, as exemplified through concepts such as routine, script, genre, practice, and discourse.
