Information in Organizations as Signal and Symbol.
Feldman, Martha S.; March, James G.
Administrative Science Quarterly, v26 n2 p171-86 Jun 1981
Organizations systematically gather more information than they use, yet continue to ask for more. This may be partially explained by the fact that the use of information is embedded in social norms that make it highly symbolic. Implications of such a pattern of information use are discussed.
