Organisations reshape their internal and external structure to conform to institutional pressure. Overtime, we see uniformity in various internal and external levels across organisations, which is called institutional isomorphism. However, the set of institutional elements might not always produce a coherent and unidirectional force, which clearly points to a specific structure. Under this scenario, how would organisation react to these very diverse institutional forces? If organisations react differently, how could we expect isomorphism?
This developmental paper from the Organizational Studies track of BAM 2013 intends to investigate the effects of institutional elements on the formation of inter-firm governance mode along the value chain of biofuel industry in Asia. It will use semi-structural interviews to obtain qualitative data for analysis.
