Order Creation from an Institutional Perspective: Market, Bureaucracy, and Community

  • Dominik Böhler
Part of the Markt- und Unternehmensentwicklung Markets and Organisations book series (MAU)


The main purpose of organization is the creation of order from disorder. Nevertheless, order and organization are two different things. The perspectives on what order is and how it is created and sustained vary greatly within the scholarly community. Möslein (2000: 140) sees a continuum between classical approaches and strategy-oriented approaches. In between, there is, first, the organizational behavior perspective, which puts the individual and its relations to others into the primary focus. Second, there is the organizational economics perspective, which focuses on markets and firms as alternative institutional forms.
