This chapter traces how scholarship over time has taken into consideration the process-oriented nature of routines. The tracing includes the behavioral theory of the firm, evolutionary economics, and routine dynamics. Elaborating and building on the routine dynamics perspective, the chapter suggests that further process orientation is possible through a deeper understanding of action as doings and sayings that display a spectrum of intentionality, control over the body, and social autonomy. Actions have three features that are particularly useful for a process orientation to routines: they are constitutive; they transcend dualisms; and they are relational. The theoretical, rhetorical, and methodological changes entailed in moving from one kind of process orientation to another are discussed.
