  4. 4. The interplay of roles and routines situating, patterning, and performances in the emergency department

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Virginia Rosales; Umeå universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Roles; routines; scripted; unscripted; patterns; situating; performing; patterning; emergency department; organizational ethnography;

    Abstract : This thesis took its point of departure in the lack of research regarding the intricate and important relationship between roles and routines. With roles and routines providing individuals with enough discretion to accomplish work while ensuring consistency, the overall research question posed was: how do roles and routines interplay to enable flexible performances? This question was operationalized through three sub questions: (1) why are roles and routines flexible, (2) how do roles and routines interplay, and (3) what contextual aspects influence which patterns come into play? The purpose was to increase the understanding of the interplay of roles and routines in organizations. READ MORE
