Fields in flux: institutional bricolage during a technological shock.
How do established institutions interact with proto-institutions during the adoption of a technology shock? In this paper, I examine the interplay between existing institutions and the proto-institutions originated as a consequence of a technology shock during a period of incremental progress. I depict institutional bricolage as the process by which new technology adoption occurs as a result of the active combination of elements from both old and emerging proto- institutions. I use a dialectical framework to depict three selective mechanisms at play: persistence, contestation and synthesis. By doing so, I begin to unpack the mechanisms whereby an arrangement is selected.
