9th Bi-annual International Conference on Naturalistic Decision Making (NDM9) (NDM)
Naturalistic Decision Making (NDM9)
23 - 26 June 2009
Motivation – To investigate how reliance on NDM-type coordinative practices facilitates and hinders the growth and survival of organizations. Research approach – Four year longitudinal case study design was used, combining action research and non-participant observations. Research limitations – This is ongoing research. Future research will explore the findings of this study in other companies. Originality / Value – The survival and growth of NDM integrated organizations is related to how material artefacts, such as computers, are simultaneously used to: (1) enhance pre-existing NDM-type coordinative decision-making; and, (2) facilitate the gradual transformation towards a differentiated organizational structure. Take away message – We observed 6 stages in this transformation process, enabling and constraining the adoption of computer applications.
