The Structuring of Shared Voluntary Standards in the U.S. Semiconductor Industry: Communicating to Reach Agreement.
Browning, Larry D.; Beyer, Janice M.
Communication Monographs, v65 n3 p220-43 Sep 1998
Contributes to scholarship on organizational communication by tracing how voluntary cooperative standards were developed for the semiconductor industry through reflexive communication processes initiated by the SEMATECH consortium. Analyzes seven pivotal incidents that show how increased communication produced new provinces of meaning, actions, and frameworks that engendered cooperation in an industry previously characterized by mutual distrust and conflict.
