This important new textbook offers a lively and topical discussion of how digital technologies impact various aspects of organizations, such as structure, knowledge, collaboration, communication, identity, legitimacy and power. Taking a critical and nuanced approach, this engaging textbook introduces readers to central themes in organization studies and reflects on how changes brought about by digitalization have important implications for private, public and voluntary organizations, and on practical disciples such as strategy, management, innovation and entrepreneurship. Contemporary case studies drawn from a wide range of international organizations demonstrate the real-world relationship between digital technologies and organizing. 

This is an essential textbook for final year undergraduates, postgraduates and MBA students taking a module in technology and organization. It is also suitable for any student of organizational studies wanting to understand more about the role that the digital plays in contemporary organizing.
