I am writing a thesis on "Learning & IT in organizations, from a Social
Anthropological perspective".

I have done fieldwork in a few organizations, talked to many people and
have tried to read as many books as possible on the topic. (Not too many
books available, unfortunately).

If you haven't pickup a book entitled "Communities of Practice: Learning,
Meaning, and Identity" by Etienne Wenger(1998) it is worth a look. I'm not
too far into it but seems very thoughtful. Please share what books or
articles you have found useful. I have one more class before I start my
doctoral research in Adult Education.
