Framing Contests: Strategy Making Under Uncertainty

Sarah Kaplan
2008 Organization science (Providence, R.I.)  
Where frames about a strategic choice were not congruent, actors engaged in highly political framing practices to make their frames resonate and to mobilize action in their favor.  ...  Uncertainty opens up the possibility for new actors to gain power, and contesting frames is a way of changing the power structures in the organization.  ...  As a result, power can be accessible to multiple actors. Contesting frames is a way of changing the power structures in the organization.  ...
