  1. 1. Inertia in Sociotechnical Systems On IT-related Change Processes in Organisations

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Thomas Lind; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Human-Computer Interaction; User-Centred Design; Participatory Design; Organisational Change; IT-related Change Processes; Action Research; Inertia; Sociotechnical Systems; Vision Seminars; Datavetenskap med inriktning mot människa-datorinteraktion; Computer Science with specialization in Human-Computer Interaction;

    Abstract : The introduction of new information technology (IT) in an organisation is one way of changing the conditions for how tasks and work processes can be designed and performed, as well as how people in the organisation interact with each other. Today, many Swedish workers rely completely on IT to be able to perform their jobs, while experiencing a combination of continuous and intermittent IT-related changes that affect this ability.
