We discuss a Manuscript Draft entitled “Routines, information flows, and problem-solving: A multilevel analysis ” written by one of our team members Guillermo Ruiz Pava. This paper is a chapter of his doctoral dissertation.
The routine constitutes a major concept in the traditional view of organizations as an information processor. This article uses a new methodology to observe the collective understanding of routine through a network of tasks separating the routine level and the level of networks of individuals. This distinction is based on the conceptual difference between the interdependence of tasks, and interdependence of individuals. Then, using multilevel exponential random graph models in two separate moments of a single firm, results suggest that individuals search ideas to solve problems from individuals performing the same task, but they do not reciprocate that search.
