Conceptualizing and measuring interdependence between organizational routines

Pentland, Brian T., Recker, Jan, & Wyner, George (2016) Conceptualizing and measuring interdependence between organizational routines. In International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS 2016), 11-14 December 2016, Dublin, Ireland.


In theory and in practice, processes and routines are often treated as independent entities. Recent field research has begun to suggest ways that routines are interdependent, and information systems have been identified as a key aspect of the phenomenon. However, we are lacking good ways to conceptualize and measure this important construct. In this research-in-progress report, we describe a software artifact that uses data from workflow event logs to measure interdependence within and between routines. We demonstrate this artifact and discuss plans for on-going research.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
