Title presentation: TECHNOLOGY AFFORDANCES & CONSTRAINTS


With an academic background in economics and industrial sociology and post-graduate education in the UK, France, and Belgium, facilitation for participative design of work organization (often involving major technological change) has been conducted with employers and unions in resource, manufacturing, and public service enterprises since 1975. One current project involves ‘human-centric’ digitalization of operations in a European and Canadian pulp and paper company. For this conference, the presentation topic is ‘Technology Affordances & Constraints Theory’ (TACT) focusing on the dynamic interactions between people and organizations and the technologies they use.
