Abstract [en]

By conceptualizing routines as embedded in IT (material aspect) and IT embedded in routines (social aspect) as a sociomaterial phenomenon, the paper illustrates a trajectory of path dependency in one of the biggest Swedish industrial corporations, where service-oriented professions were under examination. Theoretically the paper draws on constraining and enabling power of affordances, the need for a certain level of freedom in service professions for experts and the role of emotions and affect on the performances of routines by experts. Organizational routines and IT artifact are the main theoretical concepts underlying this study.
