Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to construct an empirically grounded conceptualization of organizational fields, and of the process by which fields are constituted. Taking the perspective of the organization and focusing on internal processes, we aim to show how the mundane, every day muddling through of organizational life produces organizational fields. We propose that previous work on organizational fields in the sport-related literature have built either on theoretical deductions or practice-based (e.g., industry rankings) classifications of the variable used to explain organizational behavior. Our ambition is instead to focus on and conceptualize the subjective and inter-subjective construction of organizational fields and of the inter-organizational relations in them. To do so, we draw on one-year video recordings of board meetings in two large sport clubs, amounting to approximately 33 hours of video-recorded observation data from 17 board meetings. At a general level, the analysis shows how sport club boards’ ongoing interpretive processes of meaning making unintentionally co-produce the inter-organizational relationships that make up the organizational field that the organization is part of. More specifically, the analysis shows how taking the perspective of the organization provides a foundation for a more detailed exploration of how geographic and institutional proximity of other organizations’ impact the focal organization’s worldviews and actions, including how they relate to other organizations. These findings point to the need for further research on the socially constructed, inter-subjective process of field construction through which organizations are differentiated, ranked and ascribed the position of tastemakers or taste-takers in organizational fields.
