Structuring the Agora of Techno-Organisational Change

Antonios Kaniadakis
Edinburgh University, United Kingdom


Abstract
The Agora of Techno-Organisational Change refers to the global emergence and expansion of a marketplace for the resources necessary to carry out technological changes in business organisations. These resources include technologies such as information systems and software packages, specialised technical and business expertise, change methodologies, project management, etc. The Agora of Techno-Organisational Change is populated by various diverse and heterogeneous actors (suppliers, users, intermediaries, consultants, analysts, the state, professional associations, and so on) with conflicting (or not) interests and diverse viewpoints. In summary, there is an expanding and evolving marketplace for IT and other specialised resources and expertise used to carry out technological change efforts in organisational settings. We have termed this marketplace as Agora of Techno-Organisational Change which is the analytical and practice space where technical and organisational change is happening.
