The impact of technology in organizations is of central concern to managers. Ir plays a crucial role in job design, motivation of the individual at work, successful management of change and the strucrure of organizations. Earlier literature has tended to fall into tWo separate camps: specialized studies of new technologies or mainsrream accounts of organizational behaviour in which technology is a peripheral concern.
In this important new MBA text Scarbrough and Corberr adopt a highly integrative approach. Using the three conceptuallenses of power, mean ing, and design they explore fully the many different ways in which technology and organizations interact. They highlight the major debates within these competing perspectives and argue that the flow of knowledge and ideas within and betWeen organizations is crucial in shaping technologies and organizations alike.
