Abstract

In view of the changing nature of organisations, their structures and processes, managing organisational change is seen to be an ongoing challenge. In this paper, organisational learning is considered to be a potent force that drives organisational change. The use of an electronic group communication system supporting a distributed work process is explored in a network form of organisation. Following an analysis of the patterns of behaviour that occur within an evolving electronic social space, this paper concludes with a discussion of the implications for managing change through learning in a network form of organisation.
