Abstract

New research on the role of habits and rules in working practices could have a significant impact on the way management understands the routines subordinate individuals use and how effective change may be brought about. Whilst generally applicable, the benefits of understanding such routines, and how and why they should be encouraged, is highly visible in the public sector where multiple goals are commonplace.
