Abstract

This paper focuses on the multi-level context of power negotiations in understanding the relationship between large-scale information and communication technology (ICT) innovation and organizational change. Our analytical approach draws on the concept of networks of power to examine the changing interrelationships between institutional arrangements, people, ICTs and work practices and how each plays a role in the adjustment, coordination and integration of diverse interests and goals. We use this approach to examine the development and use of a regional health information network, and conclude with some suggestions for effectively negotiating the process of change.

Keywords: ICT Innovation, Organizational Change, Power, Networks, Strategy
