Technology-Organization Relationship

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary

Abstract

The relationship between technologies and organizations has been the subject of considerable scholarly attention and debate for the better part of a century. This entry reviews three dominant theoretical approaches to the technology–organization relationship that have emerged during this period: technological determinist accounts, social constructivist accounts, and those seeking a middle ground between the two. By presenting these perspectives chronologically, the entry also illustrates the shifting role played by communication processes in theories of technology and organization. It closes with a summary of topics of current empirical and theoretical interest to scholars of technology and organizations.
