Design Dilemmas in Interorganizational Collaborations (Working Title)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Over the last thirty years, in the discipline of Communication, the study of organizations has shifted to the study of organizing. Scholars have sought ways to better understand the dynamic processes of 21st century organizing, from network approaches to the communicative construction of organizations (CCO) perspective. One perspective that continues to emerge is that of communication as design (cite), subsequently extended as collective communication design (CCD) (Barbour, Gill, & Barge). This perspective emphasizes how interdependent individuals work out how they will communicate, as a collective entity, to organize their work. <br><br>The present paper argues that CCD theory offers resolutions to ongoing challenges in the literature on communication and collaboration, specifically: (a) how to incorporate both structure and process into the study of communication in interorganizational collaborations (IOCs); and (b) how to evaluate the effectiveness of responses to organizing dilemmas that arise from interorganizational collaborations. <br><br>
