"Transformation of the Workplace: The Web and Work in the 21st
Century" is volume in the series of research monographs entitled
Advances in Management Information Systems (AMIS). More information
about AMIS can be found at

The Web has changed how and where we work. The world is now connected
at the fingertip level - the exchange of information on a personal
level and business level is staggering. As the printing press was the
invention of the last millennium revolutionizing how we worked, the
Web will be the invention of this millennium. For this volume, authors
are invited to submit original conceptual, empirical, or case-based
research which enhances our understanding of Web usage in the in 21st
Century workplace. We seek to draw upon a broad spectrum of
perspectives including, but not limited to, public policy, sociology,
psychology, economics, legal, as well as organizational behavior,
strategy, and information technology to aid in increasing our
understanding. In this book we seek to capture what we know about
working in this hyper-connected workplace. Workplace Web usage can
create desirable individual, group, organizational and societal
outcomes. However, using the Web can also generate undesirable
outcomes at all of these levels. The mechanisms controlling the
interface of individual and institution in the flexible, open,
autonomous work environment created by the Web are emergent phenomena,
and the lines between constructive usage and dysfunctional usage are
just beginning to be understood. In this volume, we seek to present
an integrated picture of our current knowledge on the impact of the
Web as well as the research methods and models for generating new
knowledge on how people interact with the Web in their work functions.
