Advancing the ongoing debates and accounting for these innovations in the relationship between technology and organizational change will require rich theoretical conceptualizations and new empirical insights. This article begins by briefly reviewing some key perspectives that have emerged in the information systems (IS) literature to account for the relationship between technology and organizational change. It then presents a short empirical account taken from a recent field study into the emergence of online news in the traditional newspaper industry since the mid-1990s. These data provide some grounded details about the nature and dynamics of technology-based organizational change. The article concludes by suggesting opportunities for further theoretical development in the IS research repertoire.
