This chapter identifies assumptions, conceptual issues and challenges in
the literature on hybrid organizations that draws on the institutional logics
perspective. The authors build on the existing literature reviews as well as on
an analysis of the 10 most cited and 10 most recently published articles at
the intersection of hybrid organizations and institutional logics. The authors
further draw from the literature on theory construction and theory development
and growth to strengthen our analysis of this body of work and reflect upon
future theoretical developments. From this analysis, the authors highlight four
challenges to current research on organizational hybridity with an institutional
logics lens and develop four suggestions to inspire future research. In doing so,
they aim at seeding a more nuanced use of the institutional logics perspective
and thereby foster the development of innovative and cumulative theory and
empirical research on organizational hybridity.
