Situational dimensions of a coordination theory for network-based team management
The digital coordination of work in emerging organizational landscapes is at a critical moment of evolution. New challenges are emerging as the modern workplace of enterprises has widened from static partnerships, to open ecosystems and digital communities with highly distributed resources, teams, and activities. To address the emerging need for future work coordination models, we provided a modernization of coordination theory and proposed situational dimensions and facets of work management contexts. As the first exposition of this, we focused on team management covering formation, resourcing, structuring, and operations. The multidimensional team coordination framework was validated through an open manufacturing case study.
