Description

Excerpt from Psychological and Organizational Implications of Computer-Mediated Work The first response of many managers to such a situation is to look for ways to increase control over the work process, but the more they attempt to control the process, the more employees will search out ways to subvert that control and gain some personal sense of mastery. Very often these subversive activities are dismissed as resistance to change. But in many cases resistance is the only available means for employees to articulate their responses to the substance of the changes they are faced with. Because systems planning and design can be highly centralized activities managed by a small group of experts, any single user is likely to have little or no understanding of the comprehensive function ing of the system or the decision rules and normative criteria built into programs. It becomes difficult to challenge information without understanding how it was generated, especially when there are no independent experiential reference points for judging its validity.
