In this important MBA text the authors adopt a highly integrated approach. Using the three conceptual lenses of power, meaning and design they explore fully the many different ways in which technology and organizations interact. They highlight the major debates within these competing perspectives and argue that the flow of knowledge and ideas within and between organizations is crucial in shaping technologies and organizations alike.
