Public Webinar by Prof. Jan Recker – “From Lock-in to Transformation: How Emerging Technology changes Organizing”

21 Apr 2022

MM will hold a Public Webinar on the topic “From Lock-in to Transformation: How Emerging Technology changes Organizing” on 29 April 2022.


How do digital technology change the way organizations works? I will draw on ideas from biology, sociology, and general systems theory to articulate a morphogenetic perspective on emerging technology and organizing. This perspective reflects a move from a device-centric or an actor-centric understanding of technology to a path-centric understanding of the patterns of actions afforded by technology-in-use. I will show how performing and patterning of organizing can lead to a wide range of trajectories, from lock-in to transformation, depending on how emerging technology-in-use influences the trajectory. When emerging technologies afford many new actions that can be flexibly recombined, decisive transformative effects are more likely.
