Abstract (EN)This paper describes an empirical assessment of several hypotheses associated with organization design in the context of new and flexible technologies. Three distinct technologies were examined in four different geographical locations in Sweden, France, and Canada. The hypotheses illustrate how workplaces are being organized within the context of flexible, new technology, and the movement toward an emerging new paradigm of work. Flexible, new technologies and this paradigm are entering organizations at the same time. The former are changing the ground on which assumptions underlying the emerging paradigm of organization have been built. Several of the hypotheses examined have been revised as a consequence. The data from twelve companies are plotted on a matrix of organization design principles against organization design implementation to illustrate changing organization design patterns as well as geographic differences between the companies.
