Descrizione

Technologies, and digital technologies in particular, are now generally considered one of the driving forces of change and indeed the dominant ordering principle in every organisation - from start-ups to large corporations and public administrations.

This book invites the reader to reflect on the concept of the organisation by proposing multifaceted theories and methodological choices on the role of technological evolution in organisation change.

Using a historical interpretation lens, the book enables greater understanding of technological change in social institutions from the intrinsically interdisciplinary perspective of organisational theory.

With the description of case studies and concrete experience, it sheds light on the fact that digital technologies are potential resources for organisation design and, at the same time, are conditioned by the behaviours, perceptions and knowledge of the individuals who adopt them.

On the basis of a socio-technical approach, this book contributes to identifying a correct approach to the problems of managing digital technologies by avoiding the traps of rhetorical innovation and uncritical acceptance of what mainstream managerial discourse takes for granted.

The hope is that the debate presented in this book will long continue.
