Of maps and scripts: The status of formal constructs in cooperative work

Kjeld Schmidt

    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    The received understanding of the status of formal organizational constructs in cooperative work is problematic. The paper shows that the empirical evidence is not as strong as we may have believed and that there is evidence from other studies that contradicts what we may have taken for granted for years. This indicates that the role of formal con-structs is more differentiated than generally taken for granted. They not only serve as ‘maps’ but also as ‘scripts’.
