The technologies of the Internet have exerted an enormous influence on the way we live and work. This volume in the Advances in Management Information Systems series presents cutting-edge research on the transformation of the workplace by the use of these information technologies.
The book focuses first on the deleterious transformations (such as cyberloafing), then the promising ones (such as the emergence of virtual teams), and then the ways the troubling transformations can be redeemed for organizational benefit. The editors overlay IT topics with insights from organizational behavior, human resource management, organizational justice, and global culture.
