The Dynamic Organisation

Our society is becoming increasingly networked, not only through ubiquitous digital connectivity, but also through economic globalization, through increased mobility of people, and through the modern mass media. Example questions:

  • The deep integration of ICT requires new theories about design, functioning and impact of socio-technical eco-systems.
  • How do modern digital networked media change knowledge acquisition and knowlede-sharing both by individuals (e.g. via transactional knowledge) and by organizations (e.g. using knowledge-sharing platforms, monitoring the social media)?
  • Do new social and technological networks contribute to more efficient and transparent forms of government, or do they instead undermine they legitimacy of our democratic institutions?
  • How should previously inward-facing institutions and enterprises deal with the growing demand in society for openness of data, information and knowledge?
