This book addresses the social and organisational dynamics which underlie recent technological and work developments within organisations. often referred to as 'virtual working'. It seeks to go beyond a mere description of this new work phenomenon in order to provide more rigorous ways of analysing and understanding the issues raised. In addition to providing accounts of developments such as web-based enterprises and virtual teams, each contributor focuses on the employment of information technology to transcend the boundaries between and within organisations, and the consequences this has for social and organisationa relations. Issues include: * the management of knowledge and organisational learning in. dispersed networks * understanding how team roles and processes are affected by virtual working * managing the innovation process towards virtual formsof organisation * maintaining commitment and managing culture in virtual work arrangements. The book offers new insights into and perspectives on the dynamics presented by these emerging forms of work, and will help us to understand and, ultimately, to manage them. Louise M.
