This paper explores how professionals in team meetings appeal to institutional norms and frameworks to attain decisions. Five distinct ways of appealing to the institution have been distinguished in the data. Albeit distinctive, these ways are co-existing and entwined in any stretch of decision making talk. The assay shows how professionals actively depend on the institutional framework as an interactional resource in decision-making.
