"Growing disillusionment among new members of organizations has been traced to inadequacies in approaches to organizational entry. To provide a foundation for more adequate organizational entry practices, gaps in existing approaches are identified and a more comprehensive conceptual framework is developed. The framework: identifies key features of transition experiences; describes the sense-making processes by which individuals cope with transition features, in particular 'surprises'; highlights how newcomers and insiders differ in sense-making needs and resources. Implications are drawn for organizational entry practices."
