2009 (English)In: 15th Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS),San Francisco, California, US, 2009, 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
In the modern business world, it is impossible to distinguish between technologyand organization. All activities are somehow supported by technology and thenature and structure of organizations influence the technological development.For that reason, it is crucial to recognize the reciprocal relationship betweentechnology and organization, and acknowledge the phenomena as highlyintertwined. This is the case in practice but it should also be reflected in associatedresearch. In this paper, a bibliometric approach serves as the foundation for astudy of whether a dynamic view of technology and organization is representedin affiliated scientific writings the last decade. More specifically, research inconnection to information technology and organizational change is considered.The results from the investigation paint a scattered picture lacking clearindications of a tendency suggesting a move from a deterministic, and towardsan emergent scientific view of these concepts.
