Seminar - Kenneth Chung - Understanding knowledge-intensive work performance: The influence of social networks and ICT use
Wednesday 5 November 2008, 1.10 - 1.55 pm
Civil Engineering Lecture Theatre 3
The performance of individuals in knowledge-intensive work and project environments is crucial to the success of the organisation at the macro-level. This research adopts a socio-technological approach in understanding the relationship between social networks (structure, position & ties), information and communication technology (ICT) use and individual performance by capitalising on theory from sociology (strength of ties & structural holes theory) and models of ICT use from Information systems (technology acceptance, social influence model). The results contribute to a larger understanding at the theoretical, methodological and domain level.
