Organizations and communication technology
How do technology and organization interact to shape organizational structures and processes? What organizational, political and social processes constrain technological development? What forces shape the articulation of organizational and technological systems?Answering these and other pivotal questions, this volume centres on the role of theory for advancing our knowledge of communication technology in organizations at several levels - micro, group and macro. The distinguished contributors examine richly diverse topics, including telecommunications, communication networks and new media, the use of group decision support systems and discretionary databases.
