In this paper, we share the behind the scenes story of the production of our paper “When worlds collide: The internal dynamics of organizational responses to conflicting institutional demands”, which received the 2020 AMR Decade Award. Ten years into its publication, we assess the degree to which the phenomenon of conflicting institutional demands is still prevalent today. We further push our theorizing by extending our initial model of the determinants of organizational responses to institutional complexity by discussing the potential consequences of these responses. We also outline the organizational factors that may enable their successful enactment. Link to the article
