Celem artykułu jest odkrycie praktycznych wyzwań związanych z transferem rutyn z firm-matek do ich spółek-satelit (spółek-córek) poprzez artefakty (na przykładzie wdrożenia systemu klasy ERP w obszarze zarządzania zasobami ludzkimi). Struktura artykułu jest następująca: w pierwszej sekcji dostarczamy tła teoretycznego poprzez w skazanie głównych koncepcji związanych z kulturą organizacyjną i korporacyjną. W kolejnej części opisujemy założenia teoretyczne niezbędne do zrozumienia rutyn: tego, jak się zmieniają, oraz roli, jaką artefakty odgrywają w procesie transferu rutyn. Następnie opisujemy zastosowaną w badaniach metodologię. Artykuł kończy dyskusja dotycząca rezultatów badawczych, a także rekomendacje do dalszych badań. (abstrakt oryginalny)
