Beskrivning av projektet
This research project investigates the role of digital platforms in developing and reshaping managerial practices from an interactional point of view, in the context of organizational consulting in which digital technology is used. The data of the study will be gathered from two organizations. Three kinds of data will be collected: discussions on the digital platforms, video-recordings of face-to-face encounters where the platforms are used, and interviews of the organizational actors. The research will uncover the kinds of interactional patterns the digital technology promotes and the ways the digital practices are intertwined with face-to-face interaction. The results of the study will be relevant for designers of digital platforms, organizations that want to develop there (digital) managerial practices, and the society at large that tries to come to terms with both the advantages and challenges of digitalization.
