The Process Handbook Project                   Matrix Of Change           Inventing the Organizations of the 21st Century

We believe that a powerful basis for understanding how information technology can help people work together more effectively will result from a better understanding of the nature of coordination. Therefore, work in the center includes studies of coordination in many different forms: 

(1) Organizational structures and information technology - studying how people work together now and how they might do so differently with new kinds of information technology. 

(2) Coordination technology - designing and studying innovative computer systems that help people work together in small or large groups (e.g., "groupware", "computer-supported cooperative work", and "electronic markets"). 

(3) Coordination theory - developing and testing theories about how coordination can occur in a variety of systems such as human organizations, markets, and computer networks.
