Abstract [en]

The role of materiality in organization theory has been somewhat neglected (Dale, 2005; Jarzabkowski et al., 2013), which seems problematic when one seeks to understand how innovations impact on prevailing practice. New material properties, that enable new actions, seem to be just what innovations bring to prevailing practice. Our purpose in this paper is to, develop an understanding of materiality that allows material properties to influence the interpretations that are made albeit in duality with the constitutive forces of the institutional context. We illustrate our conceptual framework via a case study of how a new global health-care innovation, the Non-Invasive Parental Test (NIPT), has impacted on an institutionalized health-care practice, namely Prenatal Testing (PNT), in Sweden. Further, while affordances stem from relations to practice, we show that how these affordances come to affect institutionalization, the actions taken within the field to adopt or challenge an innovation, not so much because of the institutional meaning that underpins that practice but rather how that meaning is employed.
