In their article “How New Market Categories Emerge: Temporal Dynamics of Legitimacy, Identity, and Entrepreneurship in Satellite Radio, 1990–2005,” Chad Navis of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Mary Ann Glynn of Boston College write:

We theorize how new market categories emerge and are legitimated through a confl uence of factors internal to the category (entrepreneurial ventures) and external to the category (interested audiences). Using qualitative and quantitative analyses and multiple data sources over time, we study the evolution of the U.S. satellite radio market over its initial sixteen years. We offer convergent evidence to show that the legitimation of a new market category precipitates shifts in the focus of market actors’ attention from the category as a whole to the differentiation of firms within.

Charlene Zietsma of the University of Victoria and Thomas B. Lawrence of Simon Fraser University write in their article “Institutional Work in the Transformation of an Organizational Field: The Interplay of Boundary Work and Practice Work“:

We draw on an in-depth longitudinal analysis of conflict over harvesting practices and decision authority in the British Columbia coastal forest industry to understand the role of institutional work in the transformation of organizational fields. We examine the work of actors to create, maintain, and disrupt the practices that are considered legitimate within a field (practice work) and the boundaries between sets of individuals and groups (boundary work), and the interplay of these two forms of institutional work in effecting change.
