Book Description

15 Mar 2009
The focus of this book is not how to make technology more efficient, nor even how technology harms or helps society, but rather how to successfully combine society and technology into socio-technical performance. "The Handbook of Research on Socio-Technical Design and Social Networking Systems" provides a state-of-the-art summary of knowledge in this evolving, multi-disciplinary field distinctive in its variety of international authors' perspectives, depth and breadth of scholarship, and combination of practical and theoretical views. This noteworthy "Handbook of Research" extends a useful collection for anyone interested in modern socio-technical systems where knowledge of social principles can mean the difference between success and failure. This title offers: 53 authoritative contributions by over 100 of the world's leading experts on socio-technical design and social networking systems from 16 countries; comprehensive coverage of each specific topic, highlighting recent trends and describing the latest advances in the field; more than 1,900 references to existing literature and research on socio-technical design and social networking systems; a compendium of over 350 key terms with detailed definitions. This title is organized by topic and indexed, making it a convenient method of reference for all IT/IS scholars and professionals. It features cross-referencing of key terms, figures, and information pertinent to socio-technical design and social networking systems and free institution-wide access to the online version with the purchase of the print publication.
