The article is an attempt of a theoretical and empirical analysis of the concept of institutionalization of spontaneous actions in the process of internationalization of enterprises. In the article the process of institutionalization of changes is perceived from the processual perspective in management, where everyday actions within routinely repeated practice constitute an important cognitive background of the analysis. International entrepreneurship is described in the literature in both behavioral and situational contexts. Internationalization, in turn, is described in the literature on this subject as a rapid or evolutionary process. Internationalization of the company can be a result of entrepreneurial activities of intuitional and spontaneous nature. The aim of the article is to present the issue of institutionalization of spontaneous changes in the context of internationalization of enterprises from the processual perspective. A comparative case study was carried out which illustrates the thesis that spontaneous actions are an important category of initiating and consolidating changes within the practice which is repeated every day in the process of internationalization.
