Abstract

This chapter explores habit as a foundational concept for routines research. The authors examine how habit and habitus have been conceptualized in psychology and sociology, giving particular attention to the role of deliberation and mindfulness. Drawing on this work, they develop a typology of habit that is based on the extent of deliberation by the individual performing an activity, and the variability in the conditions in which he or she performs it. The chapter considers the implications of these insights on habit for two central perspectives of organizational routines, the capabilities perspective and the practice perspective, arguing that both can be advanced by closer attention to the idea of routines as interlinked habits.
